Flinks Connect is the flagship consumer-facing product that enables Flinks' end-users to hook up their financial institution accounts in order to better use whatever service Flinks Connect is embedded in. You may learn all about the redesign effort in this short blog article published by Flinks.
The Embedded solution is the version of Flinks Connect that requires software developers to integrate. This version of Flinks Connect is used by our fintech clients such as neobanks like Koho. This is more for modern-clients in other words.
The Express solution is a no-code version of Flinks Connect which doesn't require any software developers. This version of Flinks Connect is used by our financial service clients such as lending companies such as MoneyMart. This is more for traditional-clients in other words.
The Flinks Client Dashboard is for our enterprise customers which has two major components to it:
"Flinks Insights" – customers within the lending industry who need to process requests and send invites from/to potential borrowers as well as analyze reports that pertain to said borrowers.
