“Partnering with MX strengthens our accessibility and allows us to deliver premier financial workflows and banking solutions to financial institutions and their SMB customers,” said Keith Riddle, CEO of Americas at BankiFi, “By embracing MX’s open finance APIs for seamless connectivity and expanded financial data, banks using the BankiFi Open Cash Management platform can make it easy for their SMB customers to connect all of their financial accounts in one place, which is of tremendous value given a recent American Banker SMB survey indicates nearly 78% of all SMBs who have at least two financial institution relationships.”
