Dutch banking group ABN AMRO has launched the first version of its Developer Portal, with commercial application programming interfaces (APIs).
The portal will enable external developers to use the bank’s APIs more effectively. The bank said that working with external developers will speed up innovation and improve client services.
The portal will initially offer APIs for commercial clients and basic functionalities, with plans on to add more in the future.
“ABN AMRO’s goal is to give clients control of their finances and put them in a position to make the best decisions in their particular situation, by developing products and services that are simple, fast and personalised. Besides pursuing its own innovations, the bank will accelerate the process by working with creative external developers and business owners to explore the future of banking,” ABN AMRO noted.
