Business Overview

For over 20 years now, we have helped banks and insurers to better serve their customers via digital channels. We believe whether you're a disrupting new bank or insurance brand (like Knab or Onlia), or a new initiative within a large insurance company (like IAK), digital engagement starts with the needs of the customer. 

The success of We are you can be attributed to the unique combination of professional expertise on the digital side, knowledge of the finance industry and a unique personal approach in collaboration with our clients. We help our clients on every level of digital innovation:

  • Strategy & conceptualization
  • User experience- and visual design
  • Software engineering & front-end development
  • Business analysis
  • Continuous delivery/dev ops
  • Conversion rate optimization and SEO
  • Marketing automation and personalization
  • Managed solutions and hosting

The finance industry is a complex environment with many systems, products, processes and complicated rules. The main challenge is combining compliance with whatever it takes to meet your business goals. That's why we offer solutions based on tested elements that have proven themselves in practice. We provide the integrations with your legacy systems and CRM/ERP platforms like SAP, OHI and SharePoint, but also with proven third-party technology for identity, security, bot interactions, and financial predictions. We are increasingly using our own software products and Intellectual Property (IP) as a starting point for a customer implementation, so we can guarantee a faster time-to-market, less project risk, and a future-proof solution.

Customers

Our clients want to innovate within a competitive market. They want to align their brands to ensure they reduce the cost of overhead as much as possible. Yet they want to be able to position their brands in a way they attract the right demographic and stand out in a highly competitive industry. They want to be able to respond quickly to current events and a changing consumer, benefit from trends, and painlessly let go of things that don’t serve them or their customers any more. They want to make a difference in their company and to their clients. Three forces strongly impact the ability to make a difference in the finance industry: 

  • Legislation; being compliant to regulations
  • Customer demand; serving customers in a consumer-centric way
  • Technology; working within a technology landscape that is often dominated by legacy systems

At We are you we offer knowledge of all three of those forces, and we know how to combine them to deliver successful client interaction. That's why we work with the biggest brands in banking and investment.

This enables us to advise and support you in making the best choices for what you want to achieve. Naturally, we greatly value our high-quality partner eco-system, in which parties combine their strengths in order to arrive at the most innovative and best solutions.
