Up for a challenge? UniCredit to award €50,000 for best new financial service app
UniCredit will award €50,000 and other prizes to the creators of the most innovative mobile banking applications at Appathon 2015, a competition involving 75 teams of web developers, designers and marketing specialists. More than 300 people are expected to participate in the app development hackathon that UniCredit will hold over a 24 hour period, from November 7 to 8, at its head offices in Italy, Germany and Austria.
Web developers, designers and marketing specialists are encouraged to apply for Appathon 2015 at www.appathon.eu. The event, intended to spark new ideas and generate prototypes that make financial services more engaging and efficient, is part of UniCredit Group's drive to accelerate digital banking services. Each participating team will be guided by UniCredit mentors, Group employees with a passion for technology.
Appathon 2015 contestants will be assigned to work on applications for a "digital wallet" for Italy and Austria along with apps specific to their own countries business needs. In Italy, teams will be asked to invent social media customer services and value-added service apps, while in Austria, they will concentrate on advisory and wealth-planning apps; meanwhile, teams in Germany will focus on wearables and mobile banking, digital private banking and premium-service apps.
In a further innovation, this year's Appathon participants in Italy and Germany will use UniCredit's application programming interface (API), giving them the opportunity to create prototype apps that are steps away from real use.
