Moneyweb’s mobile app was a runner-up in the MTN Business App of the Year Awards’ financial category.
The awards honour the best mobile apps on the continent and are the ‘Oscars’ for the ICT industry.
The app was one of three finalists in the Best Financial Solutions category. The other finalists were apps from financial giants Standard Bank and MiWay Insurance.
Standard Bank’s Shyft app walked away with the laurels .
“The mere fact that Moneyweb’s free financial news and data app was a finalist, is a huge achievement. There were numerous entries in this category, and to be a finalist alongside two of the largest financial services groups in the country is almost unreal,” says Moneyweb editor Ryk van Niekerk.
“Being a finalist in the best financial solutions category acknowledges the important role financial news and data play in the financial services world. Moneyweb is proud to be regarded as one of the leaders in this field.”
Moneyweb’s development team consists of two very gifted ICT professionals. Marieka van Vuuren is the team leader and designer and Kobus Swart created the code. “A big congratulations to them, as well as the rest of our team who assisted with the conceptualisation of the numerous features of the app,” says Van Niekerk.
