The Key To Success
What is the key to the company’s success? What do you have to do to end up included in the Fintech Power 50 2020 annual guide? According to Iana Dimitrova, the CEO of OpenPayd, it is crucial to look for opportunities in the fintech landscape. OpenPayd did an excellent job identifying the gap within banking service provisioning.
The fintech industry has moved the baking sector from traditional banking. However, it appears that the entire banking sector focus is reserved only for consumers. It has left business customers dependent on obsolete services, which are not only unnecessary complex but also time-consuming and limiting.
It was the opportunity OpenPayd was looking for. After thorough research and assessment, the company’s team came up with a solution – a centralized platform with an API built to help banking businesses streamline their services and achieve operational excellence.
The platform was built to help businesses in the financial sector embrace digital transformation with minimal impact on their internal and external processes. Don’t forget that behind every business, no matter how big or small, stand people who depend on convenient and easy-to-use financial services outside of work hours.
They want the same for their businesses, and this platform was built to provide exactly this to them. You can find out more about it in Reincarnation Not Transformation: Business Banking In 2020 and Beyond, where Iana shares her insights regarding the imbalanced banking service provisioning.
