Utilising Tuum’s banking core, lending, and card capabilities, as well as European SEPA and international FX payments over Swift, SweepBank is revolutionising the way banks serve their customers through hyper-personalisation which meets individual customer needs. Based on their spending and saving habits, customers will receive targeted offers to optimise the way they manage their money. Additionally, SweepBank will utilise the information it gathers via customer feedback and data analytics to roll out new products and services.
Rivo Uibo, co-founder and CBO of Tuum: “SweepBank is already making waves in the market, and we are incredibly excited to be working alongside them. This is what Tuum is all about: providing a robust set of functionalities, at lightspeed and in a flexible manner, enabling clients to launch new banking experiences and future-proof their operations. With their innovative approach towards personalised banking, SweepBank is able to deliver what customers have been demanding for years: relevant services, and tailored financial advice and support.”
Currently, SweepBank offers a digital banking platform and convenient smartphone app giving access to everyday savings accounts, as well as a free virtual Mastercard® Debit card that lets you shop safely and sustainably online, or contactless with your phone. They have successfully launched in Finland and Latvia, and plan to expand to other markets soon.
Tuum was selected for the broad functional coverage of its platform as well as its modern, flexible approach to core banking, which aligned with SweepBank’s own vision of how banks should serve their customers in the modern era. Tuum will now act as a critical component in SweepBank’s goal of achieving sustained growth as they continue to expand their capabilities and rapidly roll out exciting new customer-centric products and services.
