Smart Opener is a technology based green banking initiative by BRAC Bank and it is first of its kind in Bangladesh. This will give a potential customer the convenience of opening bank account at his/her preferred location. Using a tablet/notebook equipped with internet connectivity, a bank representative will fill account opening details, take the picture of the customer and scan all necessary documents for opening account. This service will enable opening of account instantly and eliminate rework due to data entry and documentation errors. The aim of this digital financial inclusion initiative is to bring more people into the financial system using the latest technology.
