The exclusive launch, held at the plush Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, was well-attended by industry players in the banking service.

Speaking at the launch of the USSD-based service, Archie Hesse, CEO of Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems Limited (GHiPSS) exhorted uniBank to integrate the new service into ACH platforms for easy facilitation of other financial services like salary payment and port clearances.

Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic network for financial transactions regulated by the Bank of Ghana through GHiPSS. ACH processes large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches. ACH credit transfers include direct deposit, payroll and vendor payments.

Speaking at the event, Kofi Owusu Nhyira, CEO of Nsano noted that uniBank had moved into the "future" with the launch of the service. "uniBank has taken mobile banking a step further with SMILE", he said. He continued to hail the bank saying, "What we are launching is an epitome of what mobile banking ought to be".
