9 Spokes has released its next-generation platform, with the Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) as its first bank partner.

BNZ is the first to migrate its small business users from its MyBusiness Live to a white-label new platform.

The company says the new platform is a ‘ground-up’ replacement. It enables the company to speed up the roll-out of new apps, features and insights.

The new platform is expected to bring BNZ’s small-to-medium enterprise (SME) customers a range of benefits which include a redesign of the user interface. The redesign will help improve ease-of-use and give the user more control.

SME General Manager and partner of BNZ, Karna Luke, says he is pleased to have migrated to 9 Spokes’ new platform and excited about the additional functionality and insights it offers our SME customers.

“With this platform in place, we are able to continue our focus on delivering market-leading solutions for New Zealand’s SMEs,” Karna said.

“We’re eager to take advantage of the improved capabilities the platform delivers and look forward to introducing it to more of the businesses we support,” he added.

9 Spokes CEO Adrian Grant says the new platform has been a critical objective and launching with BNZ is particularly significant.

“The new capability takes what we’ve learnt from our previous platform, from our banking partners and our users, to deliver an altogether more intelligent and platform. We’ve worked hard to deliver this next-generation offering so it’s rewarding to have it live in the market,” Adrian said.

“As part of our efforts, we have built up an operational cadence that ensures we can sustain the momentum of innovation going forward and take a lead on addressing the needs and opportunities of our banking partners and their SME customers,” he added.

9 Spokes’ new platform launches with an upgraded version of Marketplace, which allows users to search and purchase third-party apps.

A new marketing service, 9 Spokes Engaged, has launched alongside the new platform, supporting bank partners to purchase, nurture and engage users more effectively.

On the market today, 9 Spokes remains steady and is selling shares at 2.2¢ apiece at 11:33 am AEDT.
