Open Banking Makes the World Go Round. Don’t Fall Behind!

Open banking is an integral part of the newly developing FinTech world. Find out how Code & Pepper can help you benefit from the opportunities behind it!

Open banking services for FinTech visionaries

In modern finance, the open banking paradigm comes with a sense of inevitability. New standards introduced in Europe by the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) require banks to share account data with regulated Third Party Providers (TPPs) for payment initiation. The new regulatory framework is a revolutionary step towards seamless integrations, streamlined processes and actionable insights available within seconds and protected from cyber threats — in PayTech and beyond. This means not only giving customers access to new digital products, but also creating a thriving ecosystem of interconnected financial solution providers.

Challenges in open banking products

Security

Digital money flow offers many opportunities not only for customers, but also for hackers and fraudsters. Safeguarding data storage and processing can help avoid leaks or theft of sensitive data. It’s important to remember that security is both a goal and a means to an end. As such, it affects not only the architecture but also the design of every application.

Integration

The magic behind open banking shows mainly in the ability to connect it with other essential software products, such as asset management platforms, credit scoring services or e-commerce. A perfect integration looks and feels seamless to the user, contributing to the overall positive experience and building a foundation for further usage and engagement.

UI and UX design

Even the most secure and ingenious technologies won’t succeed without a carefully crafted user experience and interface. When designing customer-facing elements of the app, it’s crucial to remember about the average level of technological literacy and accessibility for users with disabilities. Paradoxically, simplifying the product can be harder than coming up with a complex solution.

Data processing

Data flow in open banking products is important not only in terms of security, but also application performance. Poor load speed or inaccurate processing results are serious issues that could discourage users from further interactions. To avoid such setbacks, the app needs to be equipped with lightweight yet highly performant programming tools.

Unlock the power of open banking

Data is rocket fuel for business, no doubts about it. With open banking APIs, financial institutions can use banking data to make more informed decisions — faster. Think insurance underwriting, mortgage services or loan applications, just to name a few use cases. All that is possible, because at its core, open banking is an enabling technology. Open banking services give customers more control over personal data and enable them to use that data to improve their credit scoring or find better deals and easily switch between providers. Moreover, lower costs, greater usability and faster services are the biggest incentives for using FinTech products, so open banking development can do wonders to customer acquisition and retention.
