Santander Consumer Bank launches new online bank
Published: 10 March, 2015
Santander Consumer Bank is launching a new online bank in Sweden, developed by Knowit Reaktor in Stockholm. The new internet bank provides a better user experience for bank clients using PC, tablet or smartphone.
It will become easier to use services and sign up for new products. Through a flexible editor interface, new opportunities are created to change and optimize the online bank continually.
Knowit has created the concept, design and interaction design and provided interface, development, testing, web analysis, training and project management. Knowit has had full responsibility for the online face of the bank.
The service warehouse, which interacts with underlying systems, has been developed by another supplier in parallel, in close collaboration with Knowit.
The new website, developed on EPiServer 7, has functions that include bank transfers, increasing loans and credits, handling cards, sending secure messages and offers.
– Our focus was on simplifying and improving the total client experience. The new online bank has increased functionality, new interaction design and is accessible via smartphone, tablet and PC. We are very happy with Knowit’s work on this launch, says Peter Leijonspjuth, Head of Digital Channels at Santander Consumer Bank.
