Our solution includes a proprietary technology platform that seamlessly integrates with bank99’s online banking system, together with a team of experts taking care of technical support, back-office processes and order processing.
Bernd Schaller, Head of Partner Products at bank99, said: "For the implementation of the account switching service, we needed a partner we could really trust. Majorel’s many years of experience in customer service and expertise in the banking sector, convinced us they were the right choice. The total package of human skills combined with technology was very important to us".
Our account switching solution allows customers to change their current account via smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices within minutes and automatically transmits the new account details to all of the customer's payment partners. The service also seamlessly integrates with the bank's online platform.

Thanks to our trusted partnership, we were able to get the service up and running in record time despite the tight time frame", said Simon Riedewald, Key Account Manager at Majorel’s banking vertical practice, who is leads this partnership.
