FinTech Focus: Catch latest developments of the week
By Gloria Methri
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 pertaining to product offerings, mergers, partnerships, and other developments to garner wider attention and to better reach their target audience.
Let’s look at the top five announcements made by the FinTech bigwigs this week:
Digital banking provider Alkami Tech partners with Plaid to provide financial institutions with direct access to Plaid via the Financial Data Exchange-aligned (FDX) API Core Exchange.
With the implementation of Finastra’s market-leading solutions, CQUR Bank will offer its corporate clients a new Online Banking portal for a seamless user experience, introduce new digital workflows, and provide host-to-host integration solutions.
