Finnish Mobile Wallet Pivo Wins Red Dot for Interaction Design

HELSINKI, August 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Finnish service design and innovation agency Nordkapp and Finland's largest financial services group OP-Pohjola have won the sought-after Red Dot for interaction design in the Red Dot Award:  Communication Design 2014, for the interaction design of Mobile Wallet Pivo.

Pivo is a mobile wallet application that follows your consumption habits and shows the state of your personal finance in a clear and intuitive manner. The application was launched in May 2013. The development is being driven by OP-Pohjola's development team in Oulu, and complemented by design agency Nordkapp in Helsinki. According to its users, it is the best finance app in Finland. It looks beautiful, feels easy and effortless and most of all, has become an integral part of people's daily lives. The majority of the users open the application at least weekly while one third uses the app daily. These numbers are quite extraordinary and are being surpassed by only by the likes of Tinder and Facebook.

Despite the extremely tight development timeline, Pivo has exceeded all expectations we set for the app. In addition to this, the quality of the app is just outstanding, and hasbecome the pride of the whole organization. 

- Kristian Luoma, Business Development Manager, OP-Pohjola

Pivo is an exceptional example of results where modern, lean and multidisciplinary way of working can lead. By combining product management, development and design tightly together, we've created something that is quite special - a finance application that users love, and that feels easy and effortless. At Nordkapp, we would like to thank our clients at OP-Pohjola for an opportunity to work with such a great product team and partners.
