Sberbank Croatia has selected turnkey open banking platform provider, Token.io, to deliver PSD2 compliance and open banking capabilities, reports Henry Vilar of Fintech Futures (Finovate’s sister publication).
Sberbank Croatia, subsidiary of Sberbank, is integrating TokenOS into its banking infrastructure to establish PSD2 compliance and enable the system flexibility required for it to develop new services, such as bank direct payments and account aggregation.
The news extends Token’s relationship with Sberbank, which began in 2018 when Token announced a partnership with Sberbank Slovenia, as Token sees increasing interest from the region.
Csaba Soos, CEO of Sberbank Croatia, said: “The development of digital technology is one of Sberbank’s key strategic objectives and our partnership with Token demonstrates that progress is well underway at Sberbank Croatia. By cooperating with Token, we can offer an improved user experience and a larger portfolio of value-added services for both our corporate and retail customers.”
Steve Kirsch, founder and CEO, Token added: “Our turnkey, cost-effective open banking solution is enabling Sberbank Croatia to comply with the PSD2 regulation while remaining focused on achieving its strategic goals and growth through innovative new services.”
Token said that being cloud-based gives Sberbank both flexibility and scalability when initiating and managing transactions. Now, Sberbank Croatia can be accessed by any regulated TPP in Europe.
The bank gains crypto-based security and programmable money technology together with operational support, consent management, monitoring and reporting.
The partnership with Sberbank Croatia comes on the heels of Token’s recent announcement that it was teaming up with Omnio Group to help the digital banking platform provider deliver open banking opportunities and PSD2 compliance for its clients.
Founded in 2015 and headquartered in San Francisco, California, Token.oi demonstrated its technology at FinovateEurope 2017. The company has raised $18.5 million in funding, and includes Octopus Ventures, Plug and Play, EQT Ventures, and OP Financial Group among its investors.
