About the Customer

Metro Bank was founded in 2010 and has already launched more than 45 stores, providing banking services for both personal and business customers. With ambitions to reach 100 stores by 2020, Metro Bank stands out from traditional financial organizations, with its highly customer-driven approach that includes services such as being open seven days a week and the capability to open an account in under 20 minutes – without having to book an appointment.

One of the key reasons that we went with Rackspace in the first place was we were looking for something that we could scale seamlessly — with a bank and service culture that we could align with.
