As per information provided in the press release, businesses have been demanding increasingly cost-effective and convenient alternatives to traditional banks, with a survey of 545 Australian business owners having highlighted that 91% feel that their needs are not met by their current business bank, which is believed to have demonstrated a need for disruption within Australia’s outdated business banking model.

Having this knowledge at its basis, Zeller sought to expand its offering so as to encourage more businesses to leverage the platform as their primary financial services provider.
