Pelican Open Banking Platform

Pelican Open Banking API solution

Banking API Solution

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.

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 open banking compliance

Going beyond open banking compliance, the broad Pelican Payments 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, Pelican Open Banking enables customers to manage, monetise and monitor the complete API offering to third parties. Combined with Pelican’s instant payments capabilities, the platform serves as an invaluable tool in assisting users on their digital transformation journeys.
