Allied Bank Limited Launches Mobile Banking

The Pakistani bank has partnered with Sybase 365 and AbacusConsulting to offer the service to its customers.

Pakistani financial institution Allied Bank Limited announced it has partnered with Sybase 365 and AbacusConsulting, a Pakistani professional services firm, to offer its customers mobile banking services.
