Contact us to hear how we can help you with adapting to the 'new normal' for B2B sales.
BANK APIS: THE NEW BATTLEGROUND
Attend any corporate treasurers conference these days (even if virtually!) and you'll hear bankers talking up the future benefits of smart contracts, distributed ledger technologies and robotic process automation. But probably the most transformational change already taking place in how companies manage banking services is the adoption of APIs. The commercialisation of APIs is a great way for transaction service providers to differentiate themselves - testing the mettle of every corporate banking sales team and marketing department.
Contact us to find out how we can help you design and deliver an API catalogue across your transaction banking services.
