Working closely with Kony and Mirabeau, a Netherlands based web agency, MoneYou aims to make savings via mobile an integral part of customers’ everyday lives, offering a consistent user experience regardless of device or channel. In addition to its work with Kony, MoneYou turned to Mirabeau for the design and development of its website and mobile apps to seamlessly integrate mobile as a part of its overall online strategy.
