Embedded Banking

FISPAN featured in Bank Innovation – ERP Adaptors

FISPAN is featured in Bank Innovation, discussing why banks shouldn’t build their own ERP adaptors.

Some of the latest financial innovation ideas have come about rapidly and are too big for even Global Tier-1 Banks to tackle on their own. FISPAN’s value proposition of embedding your bank’s products deeply into your client’s domains is rapidly becoming mission-critical, especially with the rapid digitization that has arisen from the global pandemic.

The challenge for banks is to decide whether partnering with a fintech such as FISPAN, is the right solution to the problem versus building your own solution (either internally or contracting some outsourced solution developer). The short answer is that you most likely will regret building, owning, and operating your own suite of ERP connectors.

Financial Innovation

FISPAN Co-Founder Clayton Weir, Featured in Green Sheet

FISPAN Co-Founder Clayton Weir shares his thoughts in Green Sheet’s recent featured breaking news article.

Weir explains that banks don’t need to invest millions in digitization. Countless fintech startups can help them bring new life to existing offerings and capabilities to better meet the needs of today’s new millennial professional.

A business may have multiple banks, but it has one ERP, one source of truth for accounting, payables, receivables, cash forecasting. As banks think about open banking and “platformification,” the primary financial service consumption channels for businesses won’t be online banking, mobile banking, chatbots or Alexa, it will be accounting and ERP applications, which is what FISPAN provides with our solution.
