How Airfox handles growth during difficult times

Steadfast service for banQi users guides our efforts

Despite the continuing pandemic and widespread economic uncertainty, Airfox has been fortunate in experiencing an explosion of growth with banQi this year:

Customer experience is everything

The RA1000 designation means a lot to us, because our customers are the guiding force behind our development strategy and our process for managing such tremendous growth over such a short period of time.

We believe in an open and innovative approach to the development of services for increasing financial inclusion — this is how we at Airfox are executing on our mission with banQi.

That’s why we’re continually exploring customer experience (CX) best practices and regularly holding virtual meetings with banQi users to hear directly from them about their needs, their preferences, and their experiences. We share ideas and tips on how best to utilize the app — what features work well, what could be improved, what matters most, and what capabilities could be extended. We don’t just send out surveys (though they have their place), we actually talk to people — and we listen to them.

Our aim is to develop a real relationship with our user base and ensure that relationship continues to inform our priorities as we grow.

We’re also continually seeking out ways to anticipate future customer needs and provide banQi users with the full benefits — as well as the security and protections — of reputable digital financial services.

This year, we’ve been aggressive in ensuring our customer data security and privacy protections comply with the framework outlined in Brazil’s General Data Protection Law or LGPD.

The LGPD is modeled on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and supplies Brazil with a more comprehensive overall regulatory framework. Basically, LGPD defines the rights of data subjects, defines what constitutes personal data, establishes lawful data processing rules, obligates organizations to appoint a Data Protection Officer, and establishes the infrastructure to supervise, guide and enforce these protections and laws. Though there has been some delay in determining the precise day the LGPD will go into effect, we’ve been coordinating alignment with Via Varejo’s LGPD Implementation Program.

Both existing banQi users and the increasing numbers of new banQi users will continue to receive inclusive financial services, safe in the knowledge that as our customers, they are respected — and their data and privacy is protected.
