TORONTO, ON – July 25, 2016

Tangerine is pleased to announce the launch of Digital Onboarding, an improved signup experience that provides an easier, faster and secure way for Clients to begin banking with Tangerine within minutes. This new innovation makes it simpler than ever before to access the superior everyday banking experience that Tangerine provides anytime and anywhere

“At Tangerine we’re consistently focused on delivering new innovations that make life easier for our Clients and this starts from the moment you join the bank,” said Peter Aceto, President and CEO at Tangerine. “Whether it’s signing up for our no-fee daily Chequing Account, choosing an investment or paying a credit card bill, our everyday banking experience is designed with our Clients in mind so they can focus on making smart decisions with their hard-earned money.”

As one of Tangerine’s many recent innovations designed to improve the Client experience, this new Digital Onboarding innovation means that an applicable Client’s entire sign-up process can now take place completely online, without the hassles of cheques or paperwork. These Clients are now able to sign up for an Account by simply inputting their required personal information, which is verified within minutes, and providing a digital e-signature.
