Skye Bank has shown strong leadership in online innovations in the Nigeria’s banking industry, as its website, recently clinched the overall winner in two categories, namely; “web content” and “accessibility” of the 2017 edition of the highly coveted Web Jurist Award conducted by Philips Consulting.

The bank was also ranked among top contenders like Access Bank; Zenith Bank and United Bank for Africa, an improvement on the previous year’s performance.

Recall Skye Bank’s rating by Phillips Consulting in 2017 recorded an improvement from 2016 when it was rated 8th behind Ecobank’s which emerged overall winner at the time and 18th position in 2015.

All these feat shows Skye Bank’s website is one of the most improved, beating other lenders in that space and the success is inseparable from the bank’s heavy investment in the upgrade of its website and the robust real-time content strategy it deployed.

The Web-Jurist rating and awards is an initiative of Phillips Consulting Limited, aimed at measuring the effectiveness of websites in the private sector, to ensure continuous enhancement of e-business activities and encourage better web communications practice.

The Consulting giant had carried out a detailed evaluation of the websites of 20 commercial banks, 103 Federal Government parastatals, 29 state governments, 47 insurance companies, four telecommunication companies and seven indigenous airlines.
