Monese to migrate European and the UK account holders onto Thought Machine's core banking platform Vault to reach more customers.
Monese, the popular pan-European banking service that provides instant and localised mobile money accounts in 31 countries, announced it will adopt Thought Machine's cloud native core banking platform Vault. Monese, which provides accounts to both consumers and businesses, will migrate its existing customer base onto Thought Machine's cloud native platform, as it focuses on strengthening the company's core technology platform and its banking infrastructure.
Vault's unique product building toolkit, known as Smart Contracts, empowers banks and fintech companies to build new products rapidly while radically improving the onboarding and ongoing customer experience. This is in stark contrast to banks who are constrained by inflexible legacy technology. Vault will provide Monese with the cloud technology foundation required to deliver pioneering customer experiences at speed, and enhanced resilience for millions of its customers.
This partnership brings together two fintech companies with a shared vision for the future of financial services and a deep passion for engineering excellence in product development. Founded in 2014 by former Google engineer Paul Taylor, Thought Machine brings truly cloud native technology to core banking. Thought Machine names Lloyds Banking Group, Atom, SEB and Standard Chartered as clients and users of its platform, Vault.
Monese was launched in 2015 by entrepreneur Norris Koppel after his first-hand experience of the hassle involved with opening a bank account in a new country. With its mobile money accounts, portability across 31 countries, and its availability in 14 languages, Monese is instant, on-demand and financially inclusive. Its UK and European accounts will be powered by Vault to enable faster product delivery, greater resilience and a more seamless banking experience for new and existing customers.
