Credit Agricole Launches App Store

This post is a part of our live coverage of FinovateEurope 2013.

Next up to the stage in the first afternoon session is Credit Agricole:

“The Credit Agricole Store is the first European appstore proposed by a bank and where financial apps are co-created between clients and developers thanks to the opening bank APIs.
‘The Credit Agricole Store provides customers with access to many innovative and unique apps (18 new apps within 6 months), from social apps to video games to full display of account information, to apps for visually impaired customers.
The business model provides financial incentives for external developers to contribute and they join a co-op community based on the roots and values of the group.”
