Through a partnership with ITSCREDIT, BNI Europa became the first bank to operate in Portugal to launch a credit card that presents the possibility of transferring the card debt of other banks with a 100% online application process and automated decision.
This innovative credit card involved the development of an app, available on Google Play and the App Store, which allows a user (existing or new customer) to request and activate the card, as well as access the statement and query of balance and movements, parcel purchases, change payment conditions, among other features.
"This is a 100% online credit card, since the request is made automatically, eliminating the need to fill in physical documents and go to the bank counter. It is also distinguished by its flexibility, as it allows any installment purchase to be made in installments", explains Gonçalo Graça Santos Director of Digital Platforms at Banco BNI Europa.
For João Lima Pinto, CEO of ITSCREDIT, the Portuguese start-up responsible for developing this application provided to Banco BNI Europa, "the development of this solution "fits" into ITSCREDIT's mission, which involves seeking constant adaptation to new business models that the presence of banks in digital requires, according to the profiles of a new generation of customers that privileges the relationship bank-customer in an intuitive, attractive, simple and fast online environment, without the bureaucracies often associated to traveling to the banks' physical branches".
The CEO of ITSCREDIT adds that "although the functionality developed for Banco BNI Europa does not exist in any other bank operating in Portugal, it is based on FlowCredit, a platform entirely developed by ITSCREDIT and which is capable of managing and monitoring all phases of the loan origination/granting cycle".
Specialised in the development of software to monitor all phases of credit, ITSCREDIT provides financial sector players with products covering the areas of credit origination (Flowcredit), credit simulators (Calculators), credit recovery (Collections) and corporate credit risk management (Risk Analysis).
