The Bank of New Zealand is a reasonably significant shareholder in Xero and so many of us expected that they’d be working together on the odd project.

What we didn’t expect was that the bank would seemingly outsource their web design to Xero but it looks very much like they have.

And compare that to Xero’s own login page;


The BNZ is still only showing teasers of their detail screens (see below), but the fact that they’re both breaking out of the banking status quo, and taking some obvious leads from Xero, makes me wonder just what they have brewing down in the lab.
