In addition, as part of its Business-to-Consumer practice, Kony has also announced MoneYou as a customer. An online savings bank known for providing customers with simple, efficient ways to maximize their savings accounts, MoneYou has tapped Kony to help the company adapt to rapid advancements in mobile and growing customer demand for enhanced app features and functionality. In an effort to make banking more personal, MoneYou’s updated savings app will launch early in 2013, allowing users to take control of their finances by specifying specific savings goals, along with the ability to upload an image of their chosen savings target (i.e. a car or vacation). Working closely with Kony and Mirabeau, a Netherlands based web agency, MoneYou aims to make savings via mobile an integral part of customers’ everyday lives, offering a consistent user experience regardless of device or channel. In addition to its work with Kony, MoneYou turned to Mirabeau for the design and development of its website and mobile apps to seamlessly integrate mobile as a part of its overall online strategy.

“As an online bank, getting closer to our customers is our number one priority, regardless of what mobile device they use,” said Erik Idzenga, Online Channel Manager, MoneYou. “Through Kony’s multi-channel advantage, we will be able to continually improve the user experience of our apps, on any device, in order to exceed customer expectations.”
