The race goes down to the wire and Dean takes the glory, celebrating the win for BOQ customers who can now open an account in minutes.

Group Executive Retail Banking and CEO ME Bank Martine Jager said the partnership with Ariarne was a perfect fit for the proud Queensland company.

“Launching myBOQ is a major milestone for the Group as we progress our ambition to be the country’s leading cloud-based digital bank. The app has created waves since hitting the app store, with close to 20,000 new accounts opened, and our customers have been telling us how much they love the easy interface and speedy set-up process.

"Just like Ariarne, we're challenging how things are done and pushing the boundaries of what's possible to deliver the best value and experience for our customers."  

Captured as part of the marketing campaign are the range of intuitive everyday banking features built into the app including being able to open up to nine accounts for managing different savings goals and smashing saving PBs with the convenience of round ups.
