Bespoke Thinking For Banking & Financial Services
The GFT Group , in collaboration with specialist consultancy firm Bax & Willems, has created Innovation House, open dialogue sessions aimed at developing a new tailored set of cutting-edge creativity discussion tools for banking and financial services.
The new service responds to the needs that all companies have to retain their competitive edge through innovation and assure a portable business future in a continually changing digital landscape.
Innovation House provides banks and financial services with the opportunity to work with thought leaders, inside and outside their companies, to ‘brain storm’ business opportunities, some of which may have slipped under the radar. The technology skills, domain knowledge and facilitation experience that backs up Innovation House makes it unique to the marketplace.
Innovation House brings together organisations with visionary industry professionals, and related ICT fields, including mobile technologies, social networks and cloud computing infrastructures, to map the future. In the sessions, participants are taken through a structured creative process that helps discover new opportunities and work them into concrete business opportunities.
Christopher Ortiz, Managing Director of GFT UK explained, “We believe in open innovation at GFT and the process behind making this happen.
We have created an in-house structure to encourage innovation, which has lead to the creation of GFT AppStore, for example”.
He continued, “Our customers want to transform modern technologies quickly and easily into new mobile and smart experiences for their end-users. Innovation House has been designed to dove-tail technology with creativity make sure they are several steps ahead of the competition”.
