By now, you must have heard the term FinTech Ecosystem. This is a booming industry whereby you build the perfect environment to set up your own FinTech company.
This ecosystem refers to your chosen network of relationships between a FinTech start-up, tech leaders, key industry partners, financial regulators, and investors to create a superior FinTech experience for your customers.
Creating your own FinTech ecosystem is much easier than you may think, especially with Orenda’s no code, plug n play approach to embedded finance.
However, before you create your ecosystem, you’ll need to select the appropriate widgets to serve your business and its customers.
What are widgets?
When it comes to getting your concept from idea to reality, widgets are highly effective APIs wrapped into a simple line of coding.
Widgets are easy-to-use software components made to suit various platforms, uncomplicated to use. It is a bundle of code set to perform a specific function, for example, the ‘chat’ functionality you see on various websites or viewing statements on an app.
At Orenda, we have done all the work for you, and by simplifying this process, we can reduce the usual API integrations from months to a matter of minutes.
