LONDON, 5th September 2018 - IMImobile, a cloud communications software and solutions provider, has been chosen by Capitec Bank – South Africa’s fastest growing bank – to deliver a centralised client communications hub in order to deliver a more personalised digital banking experience across its base of more than 10 million clients.

IMImobile delivers marketing communications across SMS, email, app push notifications, telemarketing, and direct mail. Using IMIcampaign – IMImobile’s market-leading integrated campaign management solution – Capitec can create, manage and deploy interactive mobile-first client communications.
