Talking ATMsOur talking ATMs (also known as Voice Navigation ATMs) are designed for customers with visual impairments to safely and independently withdraw cash, change their PIN and check their balance through a voice activated system. The keypads on our ATMs have a raised ‘5’ button to help find the middle of the keypad.
Voice IDOur Voice ID on Interactive Voice Response (IVR) makes authentication easier for the hearing impaired customers as they do not have to use Trading Partner Identification Number (TPIN) or One-Time Password (OTP).
Click2ChatOur customers with mobility impairments can now reach out to our agents/relationship managers via Click2Chat/Click2RM to get instant answers in real-time.
Door Step BankingIn some of our markets, if our customers find it difficult to visit our branches for any access or mobility related reasons, our team will arrange to visit them at their home.
Branch AccessWe have designed a number of our branches to meet inclusive design standards, which includes easy ramp access, counters and ATM positioned at an accessible level. In several markets, we also have an accessible service/dedicated counter for our customers with disabilities.
Live Chat/ Chatbot

In Hong Kong, our friendly chatbot Stacy, powered by AI, is designed to assist customers banking needs and questions 24/7. Customers can either chat from our website or the SC Mobile app in English or Chinese.

Stacy can also easily transfer customers to our live agents for immediate assistance where required.
