European Open Banking platform Tink has teamed up with An Post to enable the Irish postal services provider to offer new money management services to customers via its app.
Through the new partnership, the An Post ‘Money Manager’ app, which is live across Ireland, will use Tink’s Open Banking technology to enable customers to get a better picture of their spending habits, and be able to budget and save.
John Rice, financial services director at An Post, said that the business launched its new banking app last year.
“The partnership with Tink is the next step in our transformation journey, to firmly position ourselves as a challenger to the banks in Ireland, and to give customers access to simple money management tools that will enable them to build their financial confidence,” Rice said.
“As the leading Open Banking platform in Europe, Tink was a clear choice of partner for us to provide the data and analytics that sit at the core of our ‘Money Manager’ app.”
An Post operates a network of 920 Post Offices in Ireland, serving more than 1.5 million customers each week.
Tasha Chouhan, UK and IE banking lead at Tink, added: “Our partnership with An Post is an important step for Tink in the Irish market. As the nation’s trusted provider of postal and financial services, An Post is in the perfect position to help simplify money management for its customers through the power of Open Banking technology.”
Chouhan was promoted to UK and IE banking lead in January this year, following the departure of Rafa Plantier, who had been Tink’s head of UK and Ireland.
