“Banks in the Middle East, especially the GCC countries need Open Banking products to grow further and to cope up with the changing consumer behavior. Consumers want hassle-free on-the-spot touchless payment solutions and the banks can achieve it through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) powered Open Banking solutions.”

Finansystech is planning to open its regional office in the UAE and partner with financial institutions to aid them in their digital transformation journey. The mission of the company is to reduce the next generation’s access barriers to technology, promoting equality and opportunities for collaboration with open-source solutions.
