Intelligent Environments appears to have lived up to the first part of its name with the revenue model it has in place with a growing number of customers.

Not only does it take a small one-off fee each time a consumer submits an application online for one of its customers' card or bank account products, but the company also takes an annual fee for each customer that agrees to be serviced purely online.
