Fintech solution Ponto teams up with Zapier (US)

Ponto, a fintech platform based in Brussels, the capital of both Belgium and Flanders, is partnering with Zapier, an American supplier of process automation software. The agreement will allow Ponto’s end users to link their bank accounts at over 150 European banks with the more than 2,000 software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications connected to Zapier. 

Automating financial flows

Ponto, a fintech solution developed by Isabel Group, allows companies to add bank data to their financial and business management software, using APIs (application programming interfaces). In this way, organizations can personalize their bookkeeping and automate financial flows. 

“We created Ponto to automate financial business processes,” comments Marc Lainez of Isabel Group, the organization responsible for commercializing Ponto. “We wanted to provide companies with the possibility of granting the applications they are working with access to their bank data. With our new fintech platform, enterprises can now easily link bank accounts to software they are already using.” 

Two thousand new possibilities

Thanks to the integration with the automation platform Zapier (US), another two thousand SaaS apps have been added, with which companies can experiment. Sending emails when new transactions are detected in Ponto and automatically including new transactions into an Excel sheet are only a few examples of what Zapier enables Ponto’s customers to do. 

Lainez emphasizes that Ponto customers can manage and revoke given authorizations at any time and activate authentication when needed to guarantee safe use of the fintech platform.
