DURBAN – FNB announced that it is expanding the nav» functionality on the FNB App by allowing customers to set and track their savings, health and fitness goals.

The new functionality is a continuation of the nav» journey which began in 2016 when FNB introduced nav» Home, followed by nav» Car and more recently, nav» Money. 
Raj Makanjee, Chief Executive of FNB Retail said, "We are consistently improving the nav» functionality to help individual customers and families as they navigate life. In addition, we believe that goal-based solutions are central to encouraging customers on their journey,". 

FNB is enhancing functionality on nav» Money by enabling customers to set and track Savings Goals. The process has been designed to calculate how much a customer needs to save for a goal, recommend a personalised savings solution and include the ability to track progress.

Among the new features announced by FNB is nav» Wellness, which helps customers set up and track their health and fitness journey on the FNB App.

Firstly, the customer will fill in a questionnaire to get insights into their wellness score before setting goals to improve their score. Secondly, there is a feature that allows customers to order prescription medicine from their nearest Dis-Chem, from within the FNB App, and get notified when it is ready for collection, no queues and no hassle. 

The bank has also negotiated discounts with a number of health and wellness partners to help customers navigate their wellness journey with great savings. 

These discounts include: 

1. VIVA Gyms: 40 percent off 12-month contract if paid in full up front;
2. Body Tech: 35 percent off a 10-session contract and/or 75 percent off a trial voucher and eBucks are accepted;

nav» Chief Executive, Jolandé Duvenage said, "We all need a helping hand to navigate life. Our commitment is to play the role of a trusted partner to actively and sustainably support each of our customers on their journey. We understand that help is centred around the delivery of meaningful customer value, and these innovations confirm that we are committed to helping our customers navigate through all parts of their life journey."
