Airfox accompanies launch of digital banking service with new features

It’s been an eventful June so far at Airfox. We’ve seen big developments within our brand, and now have feature updates in the app aimed towards providing a customer-focused banking service.

Last week, we announced our rebranded service, a digital banking platform banQi. Combining months of hard work and a solidified partnership with Brazilian retail giant Via Varejo, banQi is designed to provide the underbanked people of Brazil a fair and affordable banking option.

New app, new features

Our teams work cross-functionally at Airfox to take feedback from users and develop features that best meet their needs. We outlined the ways that we prioritize usability of the app with our target audience in our recent article on UX design.

Features in development

The banQi app is constantly evolving to meet the needs of financially underserved Brazilians.

New faces at Airfox

Since our last new hire update in April, we have expanded the teams in both Boston and São Paulo, hiring 10 (and counting) associates combined in both Airfox locations. Our new members served integral rolls in the banQi launch and continue to help us produce innovative banking solutions. We look forward to introducing them to you very soon!
