Promsvyzbank (PSB) named Pavel Sokolov, of St. Petersburg, the winner of its mobile app competition on Tuesday.
Sokolov's winning idea involves launching additional applications in tandem, so that the user has a full range of services and options available from his mobile device.
He will receive $2,797.75 for the app.
PSB used the competition to explore different methods of reaching its clients over mobile devices to facilitate stronger bank-to-client communication.
