Welcome to Open Banking

The digital transformation of financial services

The emergence of a truly open banking ecosystem is set to dramatically transform how banks and their customers engage and operate. The ability, and obligation, to provide payment initiation services and share account data with authorised third-parties represents a significant inflection point in the digital transformation of financial services. The high velocity of technological innovation and the shift to mobile-first engagement provides dynamic new opportunities for financial institutions to enrich their services and products.

The Solution
Open banking initiatives go hand in hand with increased adoption of real-time payments, and the two combined will be a game-changer. The Pelican Open Banking API solution provides a comprehensive suite of dynamic API capabilities for ASPSPs and third party providers (TPPs) seeking to adhere to or participate in open banking initiatives such as the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) in Europe and the Open Banking Standard (OBS) in the UK.

Beyond Compliance

Development & Deployment environment

PelicanPayments ensures full compliance with PSD2 and OBS regulatory mandates to facilitate access to customer account information and payment initiation services for authorised TPPs.

Going beyond open banking compliance, the broad PelicanPayments and compliance platform creates a highly functional API development and deployment environment for Banks to provide innovative solutions, and indeed operate themselves as Account Information Service Providers (AISPs) and Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs). Additionally, PelicanOpenBanking enables customers to manage, monetise and monitor the complete API offering to third parties.
