Tracking overseas transfers becomes easier with new app

Keeping track of those all-important remittances we send home or elsewhere has become a little easier with the launch of a new iPhone application by Xpress Money, the money transfer service that can be accessed through UAE Exchange.

Keeping track of those all-important remittances we send home or elsewhere has become a little easier with the launch of a new iPhone application by Xpress Money, the money transfer service that can be accessed through UAE Exchange.

The handy app also helps users to find money transfer agents in their vicinity, calculate fees and charges per transaction and access real-time currency exchange rates.

Xpress Money says the app has a simple user interface that contains a range of key features.

The Transaction Tracker allows customers to check the status of their money transfers and the Find An Agent feature enables users to find the nearest agent by searching for countries, cities and postcodes. The Calculate Fee tab gives customers the edge when it comes to accessing competitive exchange rates, fees and estimating total transfer amounts.

The Offers feature provides customers with the latest promotions offered by Xpress Money.

"We remain committed to providing our customers with increasingly innovative and sophisticated products, services and applications," says Sudhesh Giriyan, the head of business at Xpress Money.

"The launch of our exciting new iPhone App is a key component of this strategy. We believe it will greatly enhance the convenience of money transfers for our customers and will further strengthen brand loyalty and recall."

The app is free and can be downloaded from Apple's App Store.
