Banking Excellence in Innovation

Digital bank, Up Bank proudly took home two awards in the Exceptional Everyday Account and Regular Saver categories.

Winners in the Excellent Banking App category included Bendigo Bank, Bank Australia and People’s Choice Credit Union.

For this category, our judges compared a series banking apps based on their user experience functions and features, like Osko payment services, account ‘Quick-view’ and Apple, Samsung or Google Pay functionality.

“Customers are relying on their smartphones more than ever to manage their money, which is why we decided to give out awards not just for internet banking, but for money management and savings innovation,” Marshall said.

“We want to acknowledge the providers who offer their customers products that can actually make a difference in their money management, like ING’s Savings with IFTTT (If This Then That).”
