FinTech,Social media platforms can offer insights helping FinTech and digital payments companies analyse consumer behaviour and preferences, the most critical factors in present times, as well as trends in the industry.

With the ever-evolving digital landscape, it has become imperative for financial institutions to offer services that cater to the changing needs of consumers, and channels of interaction like social media can bridge that gap.

Similarly, numerous financial technology companies utilise social media platforms to make announcements on product offerings, mergers, partnerships, and other developments to garner wider attention and better reach their target audience.

Let’s look at the top seven announcements made by the FinTech bigwigs this week:

EPI is thrilled to announce the successful completion of its first account-to-account instant payment transactions with wero, EPI’s newly developed instant payment solution. This significant event was achieved today through a ‘proof of concept’ conducted between customers from Sparkasse Elbe-Elster in Germany and Banque Populaire and Caisse d’Epargne Groupe BPCE in France.

IndusInd Bank launches ‘eSvarna’, India’s first Corporate Credit Card on the RuPay network. This UPI-enabled Credit Card offers a host of exclusive rewards and benefits to corporate clients. This launch positions IndusInd Bank as the first in the country to integrate UPI functionality with a Corporate Credit Card. The card facilitates smooth transactions at merchant outlets and allows users the flexibility to make UPI payments by linking the card with UPI-enabled apps.

Trigger Software has launched the Neobank Engine solution powered by Mambu. Through this collaboration, we are empowering banks, telcos, and fintech companies to launch their own neobanks or digital wallets in just 6 months, all at a fixed price. Leveraging Mambu’s cloud-native API-driven platform, companies can benefit from a composable banking architecture with a single code base and publicly available APIs.
