While waiting for their queue number to be called, customers can also use Apple iPads docked on the side of seats located in the waiting area. The iPads are pre-installed with information on DBS services so customers can explore the bank's mobile apps such as DBS Shopper, or conduct transactions via the DBS Internet Banking app.
The new branch also features "consultation pods" where bankers provide cash transaction services to customers. There are also DBS Teller Assist Units installed within the pod, which count money and enable tellers to provide the denomination customers want when withdrawing money.
DBS bankers key in the amount requested by customers on the DBS Teller Assist Unit, installed within the consultation pod. The machine automatically calculates the withdrawal amount according to the customer's request, and configures the information into an ejected catridge which is then placed into ATM machines located outside the branch to withdraw the amount they want.
According to DBS, this reduces transaction time customers experience during personal banking, and also improves staff productivity.
