We are working hard to build Pockit and deliver the outstanding service that customers deserve. It’s a mission we have pursued since our founding and what will drive us in the years to come.
So it is very exciting to see that Pockit is becoming increasingly acknowledged by industry experts.
Last Thursday, we won the award for Best Prepaid Product of the Year at The Card & Payments Awards 2016 - which are recognised as definitive in the payments industry.
My team and I are extremely proud to have won this award. It validates our commitment to providing an alternative to traditional banking that is easy, straightforward and fairly priced.
Last week also saw us achieve a 5 star rating with Moneyfacts. Their criteria include flexibility, charges applied and benefits available to customers - all areas on which we pride ourselves. This means that both new and existing Pockit customers can be confident that they are receiving a very good product.
Finally, Pockit have been nominated as a Top 100 European FinTech company and highlighted by Lawrence Wintermeyer, CEO of Innovate Finance, in The Daily Telegraph as a new tool for transforming finances.
The milestones merely represent the start of a whole lot more to come from Pockit and we are working harder than ever to enhance our product and services so that Pockit customers can enjoy a card which is even more rewarding, inclusive and easy to use.
The Pockit App is live in the App Store and due shortly in the Android Play Store. We are about to launch improved customer service support, delivered from the UK. And we are just a short way from giving all our customers account numbers and sort codes, letting you make direct transfers in and out of Pockit accounts and to set up direct debits and standing orders.
We couldn’t be more excited about these and other developments launching in the next few months!
Finally, and most importantly, I would like to thank all of our customers for your ongoing support and feedback. The Pockit team know that we can only continue to build a great business with you behind us and will always welcome your feedback (good or bad) as it helps us create the outstanding experience you deserve.
Here’s to an exciting 2016!
Virraj Jatania, CEO & Co-founder at Pockit
