What is an API? API Application Programming Interface Banking-as-a-service Real-time Instructions Developers data api perform task Channel software Immediate Response System Efficiencies Release Leverage Portal Services Functionality Imbed send users Standards development documentation access Simple Provide REST / JSON useful example interface powerful SDK expose users mobile Communicate tools data web information SDK consume

Enables direct & real time communication between back-office systems e.g., corporate-to-bank or bank-to-cloud ERP – easier for you to: Teach your IT and support Use Implement Receive enhancements Set of programming instructions Lets one software application ask another to perform a task or a series of tasks Application programming interface (API) Always on and performing real-time e.g., email vs. instant messaging

Companies that use or provide APIs Google Uber Netflix Salesforce.com Enables unbundling of product offerings Companies can pick and choose which capabilities to use within their own business processes Why Application programming interfaces (API)? Companies can expose an API so others can use it to design capabilities rather than developing it themselves

How APIs are used Like a LEGO city, companies often build their product offering by combining products and services from a variety of other companies LEGO is a trademark of the LEGO Group, which does not sponsor, authorize or endorse.

How companies can use APIs Uber uses services from a variety of other companies via APIs

Facebook, Google and PayPal each wrote a block of code which allows Uber to use a select portion of their product or service. API

Banking-As-A-Service (BaaS): A new channel for companies to access banking products and services

BaaS: A new distribution channel

BaaS: A new distribution channel Allows companies to Pick and choose which function(s) to use and embed them where they choose Have real-time access to bank data and functions for their use L everage JSON/REST standards for APIs to implement and use functions quickly Automate access to banking services Banking from the c loud

BaaS : A new distribution channel Supplements – does not replace – existing channels Branch ATM PC – Home banking Portal – Online banking Mobile banking B anking as a service Allows companies’ systems to use treasury management services & data whenever, wherever they need , instead of making them come to banks, e.g., sending us files, accessing sites, asking for information Can eliminate persons logging into banking portal to access bank services/data Gives companies more choices : use bank functions within their choice of UI, software, context, workflow, etc.

Why should you care about BaaS and APIs?

4 potential benefits Mitigate risk Automate treasury operations Enhance customer experience Improve customer service

Automate treasury operations – today… End of Day 1 End of Day 2 Bank Status Origination Consolidated Payables File Channel Today, some companies wait until the end of the day to collect and gather payments so they can create a consolidated payables file containing a batch of ACH payments that have been gathered throughout the day Clearing House

Automate treasury operations – tomorrow… Using APIs, individual ACH payments can be sent over as they occur throughout the day. They are then batched by a bank and passed through to the necessary clearing network. This allows you to get payments off your desk and receive periodic status updates as the individual payment is processed. End of Day 1 End of Day 2 Bank Status API Bank Origination Status API Bank Origination API Bank Origination Status Clearing House

How can businesses benefit from Banking-as-a-Service? Validate bank account information of the recipients of payment Allow company back end systems to communicate directly with banks’ back end systems Receive bank data real-time Capture a more current, up-to-the minute, cash position Migrate away from batch processing Increase customer engagement through existing mobile channels Accept mobile payments from customers through company’s mobile appImplement a non-password method of authentication for end users’ access to digital channels

Potential business case metrics # of hours saved & reduced cost of development of function Amount of time (days/weeks/months) saved in rolling out your offering to your customer Amount of hours & dollars saved in support & maintenance (including rolling out enhancements) amount of time to produce cash position Amount of time to do reconciliation Increase in customer sales (i.e., revenue/profit to the company) Reduce fraud/increased mitigation of risk Amount of time for your company’s customer service group to respond to calls/questions/requests for information

Now what? Ask questions about what you heard in this session. Ask your developers/IT partners about APIs – do they know what they are? Do they understand the potential benefits? What questions or concerns do they have? What challenges are you facing today might be solved with real-time interaction with your banks?
