Open Banking gives software vendors an edge and a break

Consider for a moment an entrepreneur who is building an accounting solution. Like anyone else looking to make a splash, their goal is the eventual widespread use of their product. To achieve this, the product must stand out from the rest.


The problem

Until recently, even some of the most common financial and HR tools relied on inputs from manual processes, much like in banking. Not surprisingly, this proved to be a hindrance to further adoption, much like in banking. Before Open Banking, inefficiencies were rife. In general, this led to late payments to suppliers and a lack of vision for payment trends, which then led to difficulty in offering better services.

But specifically, the problems went deeper than simple inefficiencies. This included:

  • Unnecessarily complex bank reconciliation as a result of multiple file exchanges
  • Subsequent excessive bank fees from banks associated with operations
  • Inaccurate decision-making from a lack of a complete view of accounts

The costs associated with the above inefficiencies and reconciliation issues remained a barrier to scaling several businesses. However, today, Open Banking is turning the tide in favor of accuracy and efficiency.


The solution

Automated processes are essential to efficiency. Open banking can automate several flows of information to and from the bank. This eliminates the need for manual uploads and reduces errors. This also saves time and improves overall customer satisfaction.

In addition, information management depends on having a holistic view of financial transactions. By aggregating data from multiple bank accounts and other financial products, accounting software can offer better insights and advice to customers along with new features such as budgeting, cash flow forecasting, and tax planning.
