From 9 to 11 June 2017, BNP Paribas in Luxembourg took part for the first time in the International Hackathon organised worldwide by the BNP Paribas Group and running simultaneously with 160 start-ups in Luxembourg, Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul, Nanjing, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Singapore and Warsaw. After bringing together 10 start-ups and almost 100 internal experts and coaches in Luxembourg to discuss digital developments and their impact on client experience, the panel, made up of senior managers from the Group in Luxembourg, named Tetrao as the winner of this weekend of sharing of expertise, experience and culture.
Since July 2017, Tetrao has been working in close collaboration with BGL BNP Paribas’ business line experts on jointly designing, developing, implementing and testing the proposed solution. Tetrao’s work is based on one aspect of Artificial Intelligence – namely, cognitive robotics. This technology makes it possible to automate any work process performed by a human in a web browser, to obtain documents available online and to interpret them, thereby accelerating and facilitating the account opening process for professional clients of BGL BNP Paribas. This technology will reduce the time it takes to open accounts for professionals from several months to just a few days. The clients and advisors who tested this solution at BGL BNP Paribas’ business centres in the lead up to the Hackathon final were unanimously positive about the experience.
