BOQ Group continues its multi-brand transformation

Bank of Queensland Group has reached a major milestone in its digital transformation strategy, launching a brand new app, myBOQ. The new app for BOQ customers lands exactly one year on from Virgin Money’s new digital bank, and is built on the same Temenos cloud based digital banking platform, representing the next phase in the Group’s progress towards being a fully cloud based digital bank.

BOQ Group Chief Executive Officer George Frazis said, “When we first unveiled our digital transformation strategy, we promised this app. It started with the launch of the Virgin Money app and now we’re expanding our digital bank vision exactly one year on with the latest addition of myBOQ.”

“We are thrilled to be able to deliver this important milestone in our transformation program for customers. With myBOQ, customers can open an account in under 5 minutes and take advantage of ‘no fuss’ banking with near real-time payments thanks to Osko and PayID as well as instant digital debit card issuance.”

BOQ Chief Information Officer Craig Ryman said, “Across BOQ Group, we have a comprehensive and ambitious digital transformation well underway. At the heart of this is leveraging the latest technologies to simplify, strengthen and transform so we can build our capabilities and drive innovation for customers.

“Now that we’ve established Virgin Money and BOQ brands on our single, cloud based digital banking platform, we’re looking forward to delivering this for ME Bank next.”
