PKO Bank Polski’s IKO mobile banking application has been named as the world’s best for the second year in a row by the British industry magazine Retail Banker International.
The IKO app saw off competition from banking giants including JP Morgan Chase, Barclays and Bank of America.
PKO BP President Zbigniew Jagiełło said: “We have just entered the second century of the bank’s operation, which will undoubtedly be the century of digital banking. Achieving once again such an outstanding result is confirmation that we are heading in the right direction.”
The IKO app is co-developed by Warsaw-based FinTech outfit Braintri, which continues to strengthen its market position as a leading provider of mobile banking and payments solutions. Braintri has developed a mobile framework that enables the rapid deployment of fast, functional, and secure banking apps.
“With most apps offering similar features, it comes down to functionality and overall quality to grab consumer attention. Banks, payment companies and start-ups all need mobile apps that can provide their customers with a better user experience while maintaining superb security. We are ready to support their digital ambitions with solutions based on our Mobile Banking Framework (MBF). Every mobile application that we currently deliver has MBF at its core,” said Wojciech Zatorski, Braintri’s COO and co-founder.
