World’s best retail bank details its journey to mobile-first success using Entersekt technology
Swart will provide insight into Capitec’s Global One account, an easy-to-understand, transparent banking product that has an affordable, transaction-based pricing structure and is secured by technology from Entersekt, the leading provider of mobile push authentication. Entersekt’s flexible, scalable and mobile-oriented solution was the perfect fit for Capitec’s revolutionary approach.
“We weren’t just another clever FinTech company launching a smart new digital product into a niche market,” explained Swart. “Our focus was instead on identifying the gaps in what the traditional banks offered, and providing the services that our clients actually needed. Entersekt enabled us to implement a world-first in banking, called push authentication.”
Capitec’s forward-thinking banking strategy has not only led to it becoming South Africa’s fastest growing bank, but the fastest growing brand in the country overall, according to the 2017 Brand Finance South Africa 50 report. Those attending the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017 in Barcelona, Spain on Tuesday 7 November are invited to attend the presentation from 13:00 to 13:30 in Ballroom C of the Hilton.
