The Engage Account is a superb addition to our member services. It is vital to distributing cash and providing budgeting assistance to members regardless of where they are located.

Contis’ new Carer Banking solution

‘Carer Banking’ is a solution to help banks, building societies and other financial institutions take care of their customers using the power of Contis’ eMoney-licensed platform.

According to a recent UCL study, up to 8 million people with conditions such as diabetes, obesity and heart problems may need to isolate for an indefinite time in the UK, let alone the rest of Europe.

‘Carer Banking’ allows nominated carers to safely purchase goods and supplies for these people in a fully controlled, compliant and effective manner – with much lower financial and physical risk.

“I am passionate about driving financial inclusion, which is why Contis is a member of the Centre for Social Justice and has a significant imprint in community banking.   

Over the years I’ve seen lots of changes in the financial sector, and I believe building societies must join the digital revolution to continue providing valuable financial services in the ethical mutual model.

We can assist with ‘Plug-in Banking’, providing current accounts with physical and virtual debit cards as well as customer facing apps and portals. This allows you to catch up with digital-first banks, and bring the added reassurance of your trusted organisation status.

To put it simply, move ahead of your competitors with market leading digital banking.”
