Today the open banking platform Nordic API Gateway announces its latest partnership with Nordic niche bank, Resurs Bank, creating new innovative and customer-centric solutions with account aggregation and payment initiation to improve the customer experience.
With a customer base of approximately six million people across Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, Resurs Bank is the leading niche bank with extensive experience in developing flexible payment and financing solutions for both retailers and their customers.
With the banking industry in rapid transition due to modernised customer behaviour and increased competition from new types of companies, Resurs Bank believes that leveraging on the opportunities that open banking brings is crucial to keep delivering the best market solutions and stay ahead of the competition.
With access to financial data and account-to-account payments from Nordic API Gateway, Resurs Bank will be able to optimise and improve the customer experience across the Nordics.
Commenting on the partnership, Casper Wahlström, Program Manager, Strategic Office of Resurs Bank says: “Rapidly changing customer demands and increased competition is upon the banking landscape these days. PSD2 and our strategic partnership with Nordic API Gateway allow us to act now and stay ahead of the complex competition and new requirements through efficiency and innovation. The partnership is an important step for us to act even more data-driven and purposeful towards a better experience for the customers.”
Commenting on the partnership, Rune Mai, CEO & Founder of Nordic API Gateway, says: “Simplifying the process for a loan application is a wonderful example of how access to account data can help consumers get a fair assessment. We’re proud to enable Resurs Bank in building a simplified and more automated way to let consumers lend money through digital channels. Nordic API Gateway makes it a breeze for Resurs Bank to offer this solution to customers in all Nordic markets.”
