Banno Digital Toolkit

Opening the doors to fintech innovation

By opening up access to our technology, local financial institutions can bring together leading fintech services and wrap them into a single, unified experience.

Offer a seamless experience

You’re no longer limited to your core provider’s solutions. Partner with any third party to differentiate your FI by plugging their technology directly into your app, maintaining a consistent design and user experience.

What’s more? Users can log into your app once and gain access to all the tools offered by your FI via external integrations – eliminating the need for multiple apps and logins.

Why are we opening up our technology?

Simple. For the greater good of the industry. Local FIs shouldn’t have to struggle to keep up while the fintech world leaves them behind.

They should be able to leverage those fintech solutions to differentiate themselves and pair local, relationship-based service with leading technology to deliver a customer experience that even the big guys can’t match.

How does it work?

How do we do this? By giving you access to the same API that Banno itself is built on – something no other banking platform is doing – as well as several other tools to help you develop custom solutions.


What’s an API?

An API (Application Programming Interface) is the middleman securely passing data between different platforms (think your accountholders’ transactions linked securely to Mint or Clarity).

By giving you and other developers access to our API and our design and authentication frameworks, the possibilities are practically endless when it comes to crafting innovative and custom solutions.


Our API is reliable

Simply put – reliability is a must. We’re not just experimenting here – our API is the backbone of our company, so you can rest assured knowing that the technology that’s powering your FI is our lifeline too.

Since Banno is built on our own API, you can be sure that if there’s a bug in the system, we’re on it immediately – putting us on par with some of today’s leading fintechs.

What's in the Digital Toolkit?


What’s ours is yours – keys to the Banno API

Your users are hungry to bring information from all their accounts together into one place.

The Banno API serves up secure access to data from user accounts to feed third-party applications – whether existing or brand-new. The value here is a low barrier to innovation. It’s taking data that must remain secure – which we’re doing for you – and allowing others to solve the industry’s problems by making smart use of it.

You have full control over which transaction and account data is shared, and you can rest assured knowing our API meets both OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 security standards. Push the possibilities with Banno’s API.

Design Framework

Beautiful meets seamless

We’ve put a lot of work into creating a design framework that delivers a beautiful and functional product. This same design framework is now available for all plugins and custom apps for a seamless, modern design across all of your FI’s offerings.


Your most-popular services, now plugged into Banno

In today’s market, there are a number of already-incredible third-party tools that your FI can offer to accountholders. The problem is that with each of them comes its own interface.

Plugins let you bring these solutions directly into Banno’s user interface – simplifying life for your users. This makes it easy for them to view a snapshot of the most important information right in their dashboard, while accessing more detailed information is just a click away.

Authentication Framework

Sign in with Banno

With the Digital Toolkit, Banno users can authenticate into another third-party system via external integrations and securely pass user context, like a customer identifier, accounts, and your FI’s digital brand colors to the third-party.

A closed-off industry is holding you back

Without an open platform it can be hard for financial institutions to keep up with the latest in fintech, often piecing together third party solutions.

This usually results in a fragmented experience for both the accountholders and the FI’s support staff – with different platforms to log into, inconsistent user interfaces, and confusion when trying to troubleshoot users’ issues.

With the Digital Toolkit, the barrier to innovation is lowered, allowing more FIs to deliver forward-thinking and cohesive experiences.
