Banco Atlântico Europa (ATLE) is taking a step forward towards fulfilling its resolution to innovate with a new structured idea management initiative based on Exago’s software. All this bank’s employees can now use the Idea Market platform to share and evaluate ideas and insights, building solutions for the company’s main challenges.
Innovation, ‘using constant reinvention to succeed beyond expectations’, is one of the bank’s four core values – the others being security, accuracy and confidentiality. ‘These values guide our actions, drive performance and reflect our culture,’ says Francisco Pessanha, ATLE’s head of marketing.
‘This programme is set to engage all teams in key challenges, develop innovation as a culture and strengthen relevant core values. We are also motivated to make our banking services better, faster, easier and more secure and to create stronger bridges with our customers as their needs go global,’ Pessanha explains.
Established in 2009, ATLE is a European bank based in Lisbon. Services range from savings and day-to-day banking products to trade finance and highly complex advisory solutions. Recently, ATLE was recognised for being the bank that has grown the most in Portugal, in the category of medium and small banks, and one of the 100 best companies to work for, by Exame magazine.
