Bank in a box

Matchi Trend Report - Digital Account Origination

Fintechs have made it possible to create a banking platform (bank-in-a-box) containing elements from different software providers and outsourcing to deliver modules of a banking platform without expensive and time consuming investment in information technology like banking legacy systems

A traditional bank usually has multiple technology systems that have been added onto over a period of time according to needs and scalability. The core banking platform has usually become a legacy system and one that is often expensive to maintain. The Bank in-a-box solution was traditionally used to refer to a banking solution required for a new bank or a non-bank financial institution who wanted to create a new deposit taking section without incurring massive investment costs in staff and systems.

The general need was to cover basic banking functionality, be scalable and yet offer flexibility. The proliferation of different software solutions and its specific focus on particular areas of banking, allied to the increasing ability of different solutions to be integrated, has led to a different philosophy to building core banking solutions

It is now possible to create a banking platform containing elements from different software providers and outsourcing where necessary including:

  • Core banking platform for back-end data processing of transactions
  • Support for all delivery channels – typically be focused on mobile channels
  • Outsourcing of back office functions
  • Additional solutions according to need – mostly on creating technology enabled seamless transactions

The advantage of using Bank-in-a-box solution is the sheer breadth of offerings and the ability to combine fintech innovations according to need. Given the large number of fintech innovations that are available, it is difficult to classify which solutions should be added to a core banking platform. However, a selection of fintech innovations are shown to demonstrate the ability to create a bespoke banking solution.
