Visma Connect PSD2 Connectivity and Processing
A faster path to PSD2
With the introduction of PSD2, financial services providers can benefit from increased connectivity, but integrating with different bank APIs is a thorny affair. With the Visma Connect Connectivity and Processing service, you can connect to banks across Europe using a simple, harmonized API.
License-holding parties, like TPPs and fintech companies, can leverage our API to initiate payments or fetch account information from multiple banks in a secure and compliant way. We take care of the integration and ongoing maintenance, so you can continue to focus on delivering value to customers.
The Visma Connect Connectivity and Processing Service features:
- Payment Initiation
We support payment initiation through different PSD2 APIs, enabling you to launch payments with your end-user’s consent.
- Account Information
With our API, you can retrieve account details, such as account holder name and account currency, and our API enables you to retrieve customers’ real-time account balance. You can also request transaction data from your users’ accounts automatically, allowing for innovative uses cases, such as account aggregation or real-time credit scoring.
- Available 24/7, Real-Time
We use dual data centers located in different power grids to maximize the reliability and uptime. Our systems are designed to be available 24/7, without the need for end-of day batch processing. We make use of a technology stack which is native real-time, offering you the best performance.
- Harmonized APIs
Forget all the differences in different bank APIs. We absorb and harmonize them, so you can do away with the confusion. We handle the mapping and message conversion, including content such as error codes, and we also harmonize all process flows, combining or splitting API calls where necessary to make it as easy as possible for you to grab the business benefits offered by PSD2.
- Fully compliant
We designed our API to be in full compliance with the Berlin Group Standard, as well as applicable regulation, such as PSD2 and GDPR.
- REST APIs
All our APIs are based on the REST protocol, including value-added services for statistical reporting and Anti-Financial Crime.
Security is of the highest priority for us. We are an ISO 27001-certified company. All customer data is encrypted in transit and at rest. We have integrated security tools and processes in our applications to ensure our services are as secure as can be. Our products are also pen-tested at least once a year by external experts.
- Value-Added Services
Visma is more than just a Technical Service Provider. Besides making PSD2 implementation easy, we offer specialized services in the field of Anti-Financial Crime, Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Sanctions Screening and Know Your Customer (KYC).
