Omnio Group is the latest fintech to partner with turnkey open banking platform provider, Token.io. The firm, whose digital banking platform, bank.VISION, powers banking and payments for more than 300 companies around the world, will leverage its new relationship with Token.io to provide open banking and PSD2 compliance to its FI partners.
“Token has enabled us to provide our clients with a PSD2 Open Banking Hub, which delivers secure connectivity between third parties and financial institutions,” Omnio Group Director of Implementation and Delivery, Rob Liddell explained. “Our next step is to work with Token to create innovative banking and payment experiences that meet the evolving needs of our digital customers.”
The first customer to take advantage of Omnio Group’s new partnership with Token.io is Irish postal, retail and financial service provider, An Post. The integration of both bank.Vision and TokenOS will give An Post access to crypto-based security, Token’s programmable money technology, as well as operational support, monitoring, and reporting.
“Our commercial strategy relies on our ability to successfully deliver in the digital world,” An Post Financial Services Director John Rice said. “Leveraging Token’s API puts us ahead of the game, enabling us to build a better proposition for our customers.”
Token.io demonstrated its PSD2-compliant open banking solution at FinovateEurope 2017. The company’s platform provides both banks and third parties with better compliance, quicker data aggregation, and direct bank payments with its single API and smart token technology.
Banks benefit from the ability to deliver more services to their customers and generate new revenue. By integrating TokenOS via simple, secure SDKs, banks can leverage crypto-based security and programmable money to build and develop new open banking apps. Payment service providers and merchants both win with better, more secure connections to banks, as well as faster access and lower costs.
Omnio Group is the latest company to sign on to Token.io’s open banking solution. Earlier this month, Token.io announced a partnership with Khaleeji Commercial Bank of Bahrain. Back in March, the company reported that it was working with U.K.-based challenger bank Tandem to ensure PSD2 compliance and support open banking. Late last year, Token and thinkmoney agreed to work together to expand open banking opportunities for the U.K.-based FI. More than 4,000 banks are currently connected via Token.io’s technology.
In addition to partnering with financial institutions around the world, Token.io also teamed up with open banking third party provider and identity and regulatory specialist Konsentus earlier this year. Together, the two will offer FIs in Europe a “fast and powerful combined solution for PSD2 compliance.” Token.io began 2019 by hiring a new Chief Technology Officer, Gaurav Kohli. Before joining Token, Kohli was VP of Product Development, Architecture, and Platform Engineering at Visa.
