For the second year in a row, IKO, the mobile app of the CEE financial industry giant PKO Bank Polski, took top spot in a global industry ranking of mobile apps of 100 worldwide banks. The ranking was published by the British Retail Banker International magazine.
Overall, IKO outperformed the mobile solutions of several renowned banking brands, including JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, and Bank of America. IKO is co-developed by Braintri, a European leader in fintech innovations.
The RBI ranking is based on user ratings from the Apple app store and Google Play. This year, IKO aggregated score reached 4.8 points out of 5.0. User reviews on the two app stores underline IKO’s top-notch UX and UI, which make managing money and conducting transactions seamless and user-friendly. Currently, there are over 3.2 million active IKO apps.
Based on its innovative mobile technology and know-how, the Warsaw-based fintech has been constantly strengthening 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 consumers’ attention. Banks, payment companies, startups, all of them need mobile apps that can provide their customers with 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,” says Wojciech Zatorski, Braintri’s COO and Co-Founder.
