We will continue working on proposals for new banking concepts, like buddybank: simply open the app and talk to your bank via chat, always open 24/7 to assist or for personalised services. An ever more appreciated service, particularly in these unprecedented times”.
Connexia will accompany buddybank in all communication campaigns in order to make its service even more appealing on the market.

People remain the driving force of day-to-day work: they are our key value that distinguishes our agency from competitors, and we are proud that this approach has been adopted so eagerly. — continues Ardito — Work began in February, with a time scale of two years: we have a future of campaigns, commissions and much more, through various touchpoints and different platforms, and we can’t wait to make our enthusiasm and professionalism available to buddybank and charter this journey together”.
