The mobile phone continues to become the most important tool in modern banking. And, not many jurisdictions in Europe can beat the 89% online banking penetration that the Netherlands enjoy. Even the UK with its’ state-of-the-art Open Banking ecosystem is a way behind Netherlands according to Statista.
Supercharge is one of the fastest-growing tech companies in Europe, according to Financial Times (FT1000) and Deloitte (Fast50). What sets the company apart from other agencies according to Supercharge, is their unique approach of blending experience design with their technological expertise. In their delivery framework, product concepts are already vetted against tech feasibility as early as in the initial design phase. Their bulletproof approach helps their clients to de-risk innovation and to maximize the business impact of their relevant spending.
Supercharge helps companies with their product innovation, design and development in many industries, but financial services is one of their primary focus areas. Supporting customers from their hubs in Amsterdam, London, Budapest and Vienna, their digital experts are united in the pursuit of discovering and building better futures.
At the end of 2020 Siili, a Finnish digital powerhouse, acquired the majority stake in Supercharge. Through the partnership, Supercharge can extend its end-to-end services with areas such as Data & AI or Robotic Process Automation to better address the digital innovation challenges of their clients worldwide.
Siili Solutions (SIILI.HE) is a NASDAQ traded Scandinavian group focused on digital innovation.
Supercharge joins forces with Siili to become a leading digital innovation partner in Europe.
