On May 27, 2024, the SGB Group received an award in the Modern Technologies in Cooperative Banking category, recognizing their dedication to the development of the cooperative banking sector and work put into the competition entry – the SGB Mobile App for Kids. The award was presented during the ceremonial gala of the IV edition of the “Cooperative Technology of the Year 2023” competition, organized as part of the Cooperative Banking Technology Forum 2024 in Warsaw.

The award acknowledges the innovative features of the SGB Mobile App for Kids, including financial education for children and adolescents and an intuitive, engaging interface that helps young users understand basic money management principles.

The SGB Mobile App was created and developed as a result of a collaboration between the SGB Group and Ailleron SA. Work began in 2020, and since then, the app has supported the daily banking needs of SGB Association clients. It has also garnered numerous awards and distinctions in industry competitions.

Ailleron is not only a contractor but also an advisor who closely analyzes trends and works with us to develop the product while keeping it competitive.

In developing the SGB Mobile App for Kids, children’s input was prioritized. The Ailleron UX Lab team invited future users to participate in surveys to define their banking needs and understand their views on finance and app customization. Additionally, children and adolescents aged 6-17 took part in app usability tests.

Such a fantastic concept couldn’t wait! Now, the focus is solely on initiating work on the app and swiftly making it accessible to SGB Group customers. I’m proud of the entire project team – this award proves our capability to tackle any client challenge successfully.
