Best Mobile Initiative – New Bank/Brand: Mox with GFT & Thought Machine
Most banks today rely on multiple, outdated systems with symbiotic connections and functions – change one and you impact the whole system, sometimes in unforeseeable ways.
Partners GFT and Thought Machine together created a new blueprint for the growing virtual banking market. This enabled their client Mox to deliver a new virtual bank in record time. The partners created for Mox an entirely new, cloud-based virtual banking solution for Hong Kong, one that addressed those pain points and could adapt on-the-fly to consumer insights. IT uses AWS’s native cloud services, hosted on the AWS infrastructure.
Since its introduction in September 2020, Mox has become one of the fastest-growing banks in Hong Kong It now counts 400,000 customers, (as of November 2022) driven in no small part because of the right partnership serving the evolving needs of both the banking industry and its consumers through innovative collaboration.
