What’s new in the ‘Woz’ release?

Named ‘WOZ’ as a tribute to Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak, FintechOS 18.1 release aims to revolutionize the way financial apps are designed and built, just as the first Woz did with Apple I and II. The release focuses on usability and friendliness and brings huge improvements in terms of digital customer journeys, designer experience and AppStore content. 

‘Woz’ responds to the feedback we’ve received from our partners and comes with proactive features to streamline implementation and upgrades. It helps galvanize innovation and accelerates development speed, while conveying powerful tools to design and launch financial apps, even faster as before. The apps, published by our R&D team or by our partners, are available in the Fintech AppStore for discovery or gap analysis and can be downloaded anytime on demand.
