Sampath RemitWise provides users with contact details of Sampath Bank’s overseas Business Promotion Officers and current exchange and deposit rates. They can chat with the overseas representatives as well as the Bank’s Head Office in Colombo through the app and inquire about other services. Its location capabilities allow users to locate local remittance agents and access their respective exchange rates. They can track their e-remittance transactions through it. While beneficiaries can request for transfers using the app, both senders and beneficiaries can request for loans on it.
