PSD2 gives regulated third-party providers access to bank data (open finance) and opens up new opportunities for the financial services sector. The focus is on BaFin-compliant account information and payment initiation services that lay the foundations for customer-centric added value via interfaces with banks.
FinTecSystems (FTS), a provider with BaFin authorisation, is one of the leading technology providers in the area of account information, payment initiation and open finance. FTS currently offers access to over 99 % of banks in Germany and Austria. Its “analysis engine” allows the B2B fintech firm to categorise bank customers’ payment streams and break them down according to customer interests. The software, which is based on machine learning, is 98.5 % accurate across the most important categories, making it the strongest-performing analysis engine on the market at present.
adesso, which has expertise in customer experience and is committed to demand-driven optimisation of the customer journey via digital channels, views this business segment as exciting new ground. The aim of the new partnership with FTS is to help adesso offer its corporate customers even more precision-tailored IT solutions for their end customer business.
The new collaboration will offer attractive added value to the insurance industry in particular in its first stage. This focuses particularly on targeted use of data-based know-how to optimise the development of mobile apps, platforms and campaigns. Insurers can use this as a basis for offering their customers personalised digital services with attractive added value, thereby increasing their customer touchpoints on the whole.
