What is an API?
API stands for Application Programming Interface. Our API solutions enable companies to establish a secure, real-time connection between their apps and the bank.
Our API solutions transfer your company’s data between various systems in a predefined format. The advantage of an API is that it enables various tools and apps developed at different times to exchange data.
For example, your company could use our corporate banking APIs to make machine-coded payments and transaction queries on any system.
Data is transferred with APIs between your company and the bank in real time. Payment processing and lists of account transactions are no longer based on batch runs. Instead, each API call is processed immediately. In addition, SEPA Instant Credit Transfer can be used to transfer funds to the recipient’s account in seconds, and your company immediately receives confirmation of a successful payment.
APIs can be used to fully automate payment transfers and transaction queries, thereby speeding up your company’s processes involving payment settlements and monitoring of receivables. When your company uses our Corporate Banking API solutions, we identify your company by machine.
Corporate Banking API solutions can be integrated wherever your company needs a bank connection. This also makes it easier to export data from the bank for purposes beyond financial administration.
