Today’s banking customers expect smoother, personalised online experiences, similar to those they receive from Amazon, Netflix, Uber, and Google.
Banks struggle to meet these expectations as they lack a compelling digital proposition, due to complex processes and outdated technology.
Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has built a model bank on Vault. At the back-end, InQbate connects with an ecosystem of leading technology companies, such as Onfido for ID&V and Form3 for Payments. At the front-end, InQbate offers a user experience that is intuitive and covers over 10+ end-to-end customer and product journeys, such as onboarding, account management, and loan application. The model bank can be used both to launch new, differentiated propositions or as a stepping stone to evolve existing business models.

InQbate by BCG brings to life a modern banking solution, enabling neobanks to launch in-market and legacy banks to adapt and compete.
Through the integration of best-in-breed solutions from leading technology vendors with Vault, the model bank aims to deliver personalised and intuitive experiences for customers. For example, customers often struggle to derive meaningful insights from their transactions. Using real-time, granular data from Vault, InQbate by BCG enables a bank’s customers to tag and search transactions, as well as split or delay payments.
InQbate by BCG also focuses on simplifying customer journeys. For example, customers often face lengthy and difficult processes in accessing consumer loans. With Vault, credit decisioning algorithms can be leveraged in real-time. Combining this with pre-configured workflow designs, InQbate by BCG reduces new customer loan approval time to just 7 minutes.
Using a modular approach and open architecture design, technology vendors can be added or removed from the ecosystem. This is possible with minimal disruption to processes and workflows, enabling banks to have lower costs to serve.

BCG shares Thought Machine's approach when it comes to challenging the status quo and reimagining what banking should look like.
