We now have the ability to integrate into the BT ecosystem and other actors, such as fintech, which will provide a superior digital experience for customers, and new ideas can be implemented much faster Fintech helps us to keep pace with the new challenges and requirements, with the new technologies, but also with the competition coming from other domains," says Mariana Chindris, digital transformation coordinator, Banca Transilvania.
The test phase runs until September 2019, after which the final version of the platform is launched. The bank will add other services in the coming months.
