BGŻ BNP Paribas Bank together with Autenti engages in paperless project

We must move along with the spirit of time, take care of the satisfaction of our clients, but also of our own time, satisfaction reaped from work and the environment. Implementation to banking use of modern technological solutions lets us achieve all these objectives at one go – says Krzysztof Wojciechowski, the Managing Director of the Consumer Finance Sales Division of the BGŻ BNP Paribas Bank.

The beginnings of co-operation

Thanks to implementation of the Autenti solution at the BGŻ BNP Paribas Bank, the signing of loan agreements shall be possible online, using just any electronic device with Internet access.

We are thrilled to get engaged in the projects, in which – thanks to the application of the latest technologies and adapting them to the legal provisions – we are in a position to optimize processes and make them innovative. From the very beginning of the co-operation, BGŻ BNP Paribas Bank came to be known as an institution especially prone to new technologies – says Grzegorz Wójcik, CEO and founder of Autenti. – In effect, we have designed and implemented at the Bank a solution, which is the first of the kind on the Polish market. Thanks to it, the loan related processes shall be operated fully online, which shall generate some substantial savings of time and money, not to speak of the comfort and satisfaction of the parties concerned – adds Grzegorz Wójcik.

The power of innovation

Digitalization is a part of our growth strategy. Thanks to it, we can offer to our partners and to their employees some innovative and at the same time safe solutions. These are the assumptions that constitute the foundation of the co-operation recently started with the Play. We are striving to change the way our work is done, in such a way so that it would have a positive effect on the natural environment. By eliminating paper from circulation of documents, within 3 years’ time we are saving 600 trees, meaning an average forest – adds Krzysztof Wojciechowski.
