Horizn is pleased to share that the Nationwide Building Society Colleagues Discover Mobile platform, powered by Horizn Knowledge Platform, led Nationwide Building Society to win the Best customer-focused cultural transformation or staff participation initiative award at this year’s prestigious Financial Innovation Awards. This event was hosted by The London Institute of Banking & Finance, in London, in December 2018.
The Horizn Knowledge Platform equips Nationwide Building Society colleagues with the knowledge they need to improve the member experience, humanize digital banking and increase digital adoption. Each time Nationwide Building Society launches a digital capability to its members, it’s essential that both members and colleagues understand how it works.
“We are excited to support these initiatives with Nationwide Building Society in the UK and are very proud to win this prestigious Financial Innovation Award for Nationwide’s Building Society Colleagues Discover Mobile,” said Janice Diner, Horizns’ CEO and founding Partner.
“These hotly contested awards recognise companies for their development of innovative products and projects that empower consumers, communities, and businesses around the world. Congratulations to all the winners!” said Alex Fraser, CEO at The London Institute of Banking & Finance.
