Unter der Flagge von Österreich finden sich die folgenden Herausforderungen:
Target Savings – Wealth Planning
Everything starts with a saving goal. From Target & Dream Saving tools that allow to get to your targeted amount of money required in more or less sophisticated and fun ways the topic expands to planning the accumulation of larger amounts of wealth. Common components of target saving apps are graphical ways or multi-medial games to show completion rate to reach the target! The goal could be published to others to attract them helping to collect the money. For sure it should be a multi-channel approach being manageable in mobile as well as desktop banking. Multiply goals can be administered. Money can be easily shifted in several situations to add to the goal completion (e.g. on click transfer from your App). The goals can also target a specific customer group e.g. kids for example in “my first Sparschwein”. When it comes to wealth planning, the questions are somehow broader: How to become a millionaire with 50? Everything starts with an idea and results in a plan. Supporting the user with the adequate tools to draw a wealth outlook, set milestones and checkpoints and giving tips on how the goal can be reached.
Assets under (Self)-Management
Giving clients a powerful tool to overlook their assets and to manage them just in time according to their needs. Also yielding reliable support in important decisions – e.g. the opinion of your friends, peers & experts. Find the investment which matches the personal wealth status, risk profile and preferred field of investment (e.g. start-up funding). Moreover it shall include some logic on Financial Forecasting i.e. based on previous “real” transaction data and with the additional info of the user e.g. budget demand, loan rates, expected income increase, etc. the tool will draft a “financial” outlook. e.g. numbers, visuals, for a specified timeframe etc.
Customer Centric Wallet
Life is getting more and more digital – so do our wallets. How does a digital wallet look like in the future and how does it work. How to put a convenient customer experience in the center? Which are the “moments of truth“ such a wallet must cover? What features are included and how can they work on the device? Does it ease e.g. micro payments in your community of friends? How will these payments work in the future between peers? What technology shall it use? The focus should be put on an easy access, fast transaction & check-out, security, easy usability and high adoption-rate (i.e. almost everybody can use it from the start). An additional demand is that the solution is compliant with the Austrian market.
