Platform and core integrations

We support your existing banking core, with maximum options for your FI to continue to be supported on our platform.

All the tools and resources your developers need for success

The SDK is more than just APIs. It's a toolset for building functionality without worrying about the complexity of running code in production. 

A sandbox development environment is available to design and test your ideas, and everything needed for success is available: documentation, example extensions, hosted code repository, UI components, Python and JavaScript libraries, log access, continuous deployment to test environments, data center hosting, monitoring, and analytics.  

Data and machine learning

The platform combines transactional data from integrations with behavioral insights from the user experience layer, forming a comprehensive view of each account holder's financial activities, needs, and goals. This data fuels data-driven solutions for marketing, fraud, and beyond

Pre-built integrations for additional solutions

Launch new fintech solutions inside your banking platform that are already prebuilt and integrated into the platform. Offer for-purchase fintech products directly to your account holders and earn more revenue.
