Q2logoNew.jpg

We recently chatted with Austin-based Q2 (formerly Q2ebanking) to find out what its team has been up to since demoing at Finovate. We also wanted to get a closer look at the recent announcement of its partnership with PFM solutions provider, Geezeo.

Q2 Overview

    • Headquarters: Austin, TX
    • Employees: 360 with plans to hire 40 more by year end
    • Funding: $20 million
    • Number of FI clients: Just under 400
    • Clients include: Umpqua Bank, Urban Partnersip Bank, and Eli Lilly FCU
    • End users: Just under 3 million
Since FinovateSpring 2011
At FinovateSpring 2011, Q2 demoed its Risk & Fraud Analysis to help FIs defend against account takeover in ACH, wire, and external transfers. Since then, the Austin-based company has been quite busy. Here is a sample of what it has been up to:

1) Enhanced security: Q2 is the only online banking provider that has built its own security solution into its platform.

2) Q2Clarity: This new solution provides bank executives with easy-to-digest visuals of how their customers are using online and mobile banking platforms. Graphs show logon rates, mobile device usage, and more.

q2clarity11.jpg

3) Tablet: A step further into mobile development allows end users to perform daily banking tasks, including mobile bill pay, remote deposit capture, and mobile enrollment.

Q2iPadIMG.jpg

GeezeoLogo.jpg

Geezeo partnership
Geezeo first took the Finovate stage in 2007 with a followup appearance at FinovateFall 2010, where it demoed its Enterprise Marketing Platform alongside SapientNitro.

Integrating Geezeo's PFM with Q2's e-banking platform will provide users easy access to their spending summary. Financial institutions will have the option to customize how they want Geezeo's PFM to look inside their online banking experience. For example, it can appear on a sidebar on the homepage, or be located under a separate tab.

People's Bank of Alabama is the first to adopt this new platform, and Q2 is in the process of on-boarding additional customers. 

What's next
Q2's next innovation will focus on Big Data marketing. Retail banks will be able to use data gathered from client interactions to cross-sell and up-sell to customers.

Q2 demoed at FinovateSpring 2011. Check out the demo video here.

  • Finovate-F-Logo.jpgCardlytics hires Jim Morgan as its first CFO.
  • Yodlee lets U.K. lenders view prospects' bank account data.

Q2ebankingLogo.jpg

Northwest U.S. residents who bank with Umpqua Bank will soon benefit from an enhanced digital and mobile banking platform.

Electronic banking solutions provider Q2ebanking announced this morning it has added Umpqua Bank as a client. 

The Portland-based bank will enhance its digital and mobile channels with Q2ebanking's Q2platform, which has more than 400 financial institution users. The offering is built to deliver tailored customer interactions consistently through all devices.

umpquaLogo.jpg

Umpqua Bank has a modern approach to online banking. According to The Financial Brand's piece written by Jeffry Pilcher:

"Umpqua's brand is one of the most-admired in banking. It is chic, contemporary and stylish, with a sense of urban design. In fact, Umpqua Bank's brand identity is about as close as you'll find to something like Apple in the financial industry."

This fits well with Q2ebanking's style.

This quarter, both January and Feburary funding exceeded $50 million. Most of February's funding can be attributed to On Deck Capital's $42 million round.

Here's the Q1 summary for 2013:

January -- $57 million raised by 6 companies
February -- $56 million raised by 5 companies
March -- $42 million raised by 4 companies

___________________________________________________________________

*While the funding over last year has increased, so has the number of Finovate alums. We're tracking more than 100 additional companies this year compared to last year.

Last week, I attended BAI Retail Delivery in Washington D.C. where over 200 exhibitors lined the trade show floor of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

There were 31 Finovate alums on the expo floor, and even more in attendance. My schedule was packed, but I was able to catch up with a handful of Finovate alums.

Here's what I learned.

Thumbnail image for CardlyticsLogo.jpg

The card-linked offers company is in the middle of a successful mobile deployment effort with BofA, PNC, Regions, and a few other unnamed FIs. After launching their respective rewards programs on mobile, the FIs have seen an increase in user engagement and an increase in the number of online banking visits per user.

It is also working on International expansion. So far the top 3 European card issuers have signed.

Thumbnail image for Equifax.jpg
The consumer credit reporting agency recently launched its Insight Score for Retail Banking, a solution that will help FIs generate a risk score for underbanked individuals with no credit data or history. It does this by using non-FI-related payment data from companies like Telco and other TV and cable providers.

fiserv.jpg
The fintech provider showed me its SpotPay payment dongle and back-end solution. It appears to be Fiserv's response to Square that it will co-brand with FIs. Fiserv is able to on-board FIs with SpotPay in a couple of days, so it is a quick way for FIs to get into the payments game. 

While there is an $8.95 per month fee, it is competitively priced, charging only a 1.99% fee on a swipe, and a 3.19% fee on card-not-present transactions.

Thumbnail image for GuardianAnalytics.jpg
Because volume and sophistication of fraud has grown, Guardian Analytics started bank-sourcing (think crowdsourcing) fraud by bringing multiple institutions together to collaborate on the types of fraud they're seeing so the whole industry will be better at fighting it. Tiffany Riley, Guardian Analytics' VP of marketing tells me they've received positive feedback so far.

mFoundryLogo2.jpg
Mobile banking solutions company, mFoundry launched its Fin.X platform. This platform can be thought of as a type of app store for FIs to select which products/services they want to include in their mobile app. 

At BAI, mFoundry announced partnerships with Blackhawk Network, Dwolla, and Micronotes 
to white-label their solutions within the Fin.X platform.

The PFM won CUNA Tech Council's Best of Show Award at BAI. This counts as its 5th Best of Show award.

Thumbnail image for MonitiseLogo2.jpg
After the mobile money solutions company acquired Clairmail 3 months ago, Monitise now has 17 million active users. It is in trials of an NFC solution with a few banks. The solution uses a sticker as opposed to a chip inside of the actual device.

Thumbnail image for Q2ebankingLogo.jpg
The electronic banking solutions provider launched Q2clarity, a tablet-optimized dashboard that provides customizable analytics and visibility to how customers are using an FI's mobile and online platform. Providing these metrics to a branch manager, gives them the ability to make more informed decisions about which products and services to offer.

These eight companies are just a fraction of what I saw at BAI this year. For more information on who attended the trade show, visit here.
