Welcome to GFT’s Digital Innovation Lab

The Digital Innovation Lab enables the design, development and launch of winning solutions that improve the customer experience and maximize innovation during the transformation journey. This process is beyond the reach of other consulting or service firms, which do not have GFT’s knowledge, technology, platforms, ecosystem connections, innovative culture, or credentials.

The Lab is a proving ground for tomorrow’s digital environments. Using new devices and cutting-edge technologies, we design, engineer, and test innovative solutions for the financial and industrial sectors. The application ecosystem that is generated at the core lab is shared and scaled around the world through the GFT Digital Lab network’s private distribution channel.

The GFT Digital Innovation Lab

Why transform your business

Guiding you safely into the digital era

The digital transformation journey requires changes in technology, processes, operations, business models and business culture. Our labs enable you to accelerate these changes.

‘Customer’ is the most common term

The aim of the lab is to create global solutions that are suitable for different environments and contexts by exploiting new technologies and device capabilities, bearing in mind the latest market trends and social patterns.

Far beyond animated presentations

The lab’s highest priority is to deliver valuable experiences, focusing first on the most important features to create the minimum viable experience (MVE). This is part of a continuous and iterative process that facilitates lean and agile development

Starting with ideas, anchoring these within experiences and finally delivering these experiences as something tangible based on the latest market technology, covering a wide variety of gadgets and including third party solutions.”
Paco Amador Digital Transformation Manager

Why choose GFT

A passionate team

Digitalisation affects a variety of areas so the GFT Digital Innovation Lab involves an open and multidisciplinary team combining different skills and know-how - essential for the success of any initiative.

Co-innovation with customers

It is essential to ensure that there is sufficient focus on understanding the client context, identifying areas of improvement, generating creative insights and analysing these ideas logically to develop them into feasible solutions.

Minimum viable experience (MVE)

Our approach to the MVE is to pull together a set of prototypes to be used separately or together, focussing on the experience when a customer or employee interacts with financial services.
