Rabobank personalises online banking
6 February 2013
Rabobank has extended the start page of its Rabo Internet Banking site with 'widgets' using the latest version of Figlo’s Personal Finance Management (PFM) application.
These mini applications can be added to the start page of internet banking to enable users to see their current financial situation at a glance.
The client decides which widgets he wants to have on the start page and can remove the widgets and again add them to the start page later.
The client can, for example, sort expenses, create budgets and manage virtual money boxes.
By making smart use of Figlo technology, Rabobank has built its own ‘dashboard’
Figlo Nederland Credit and debit entries of the previous 15 months are automatically classified in categories. Also new credit and debit entries are automatically classified in the categories. No extra costs are charged for the new service.
Rabobank wants to make internet banking even more personal and to offer clients personal information and an overview of their finances.
“Rabobank wishes to distinguish itself from the regular online cashbook on several points,” said Marco Mur, formula manager at Rabobank. “An example of this is the money boxes functionality. This allows users to create several money boxes – savings targets – for one savings account. Using the widget it is possible to get a clear picture of the money box and to see whether the target has already been reached.
“Rabobank developed this functionality in collaboration with Figlo.”
Jan van Lierop, CEO of Figlo Nederland: “By making smart use of Figlo technology, Rabobank has built its own ‘dashboard’. During the project, Figlo worked closely with Rabobank, while it was possible to keep a focus on the generic development. This allowed us to limit the customisation costs, which is quite something if you consider the scope of the project.”
