The Bank Administration Institute (BAI) has awarded a prize to CaixaBank Now's new “Mobility” space as the “Best initiative in the Innovation of internal processes category” in its 2020 Global Innovation Awards, which recognise the most innovative solutions in the global financial services industry.
The jury, made up of a panel of global financial services innovation leaders, chose CaixaBank Now's new service for its originality, innovation and impact on the bank's customers from out of hundreds of candidacies received this year.
CaixaBank Now's “Mobility” space, launched in 2020, includes all the bank's products and services related to mobility in a single application. Through this initiative, CaixaBank intends to cater to its customers' new needs in terms of easy, safe and sustainability mobility, as well as guarantee the best navigation experience in its mobile application.
Via “Mobility”, CaixaBank customers can buy electric scooters and bicycles, take out a leasing product, finance a car or motorbike, rent a car through Rental Cars or take out vehicle insurance, and do it in a fully digital and secure way.
The “Mobility” service offers multiple benefits and features as part of a strategy aimed at reinforcing all products and services on CaixaBank's digital channels. For example, in the case of financing a car or a motorbike, via CaixaBank Now, customers can calculate the loan conditions, request taking the loan out and obtain the funds without having to visit a branch.
If leasing a vehicle, once the operation is approved online, customers can monitor the contracted vehicle, find out the expected date of delivery and view the point of collection on the application.
When renting cars on RentalCars.com, customers will receive a 6% discount on the rental price.
