Banno Digital Toolkit

Opening the doors to fintech innovation.

By opening up access to our technology, local 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 other tools via single sign-on (otherwise known as SSO)—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 account holders’ 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.

With Banno’s API, we’re giving you the power to develop for tools outside of Banno’s platform. You can allow users to securely access data about their accounts via third-party applications—like Mint, for example.

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.

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, kits, or custom apps, delivering a seamless, modern design across all of your FI’s offerings.

icon-plugins Created with Sketch. Plugins

Your most-popular services. Now plugged into Banno.

In today’s market, there are a number of already-incredible third-party tools for FIs to offer their account holders. The problem is that with each of them comes their own interfaces and administrative systems. Plugins allow you to bring these solutions directly into Banno’s user interface.

Not only does this simplify things for your users, but solutions can also plug in to your staff’s back end system, enhancing the Banno tools your team uses, like People and Support.

icon-kits Created with Sketch. Kits

No need to develop from scratch.

Don’t spend time custom-coding pieces of your app or software when Banno has already done the heavy-lifting. With Banno Kits, you can bring features like Banno Conversations or Zelle® into your own app without engineering it from scratch.

icon-auth-framework Created with Sketch. Authentication Framework

Sign in with Banno.

Use Banno to authenticate users into another third party system via SSO and pass user context, like a customer identifier, accounts, or Banno theme color values to the third party in a secure way.

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 account holders 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.
