A year on from its debut, ABN Amro’s iPhone and Android app Tikkie has passed the half million users mark in the Netherlands. Available to customers of any Dutch bank, this is used mostly for sharing bills between friends, family members and colleagues.
After Tikkie was introduced for retail users in June 2016, the first commercial partnership was launched in February. Customers of airline company Transavia can use it when purchasing additional services online or by mobile device, for example selecting a seat or booking an extra suitcase.
ABN AMRO’s Chief Digital Officer Frank Verkerk comments: "We’re very pleased that Tikkie has become so popular. We wanted to create an app that made it less awkward to ask people to pay you back. With half a million users in less than a year’s time, we’re clearly heading in the right direction. And every week we’re contacted by more companies that want to start using Tikkie."
