TechAdvance introduces Bloc, a platform for rapidly developing FinTech applications
Bloc enables startups and enterprises of all sizes to rapidly develop, launch, and scale FinTech applications — in less than half the time it typically takes.
On Monday, September 13th, 2021, TechAdvance announced the official release of Bloc—a proprietary suite of APIs that enables anyone to launch a FinTech product in a fraction of the time it typically takes. TechAdvance's Bloc platform makes FinTech accessible to everyone—tech companies, internet startups, small businesses, and large corporations alike.
The announcement coincides with the launch of five Bloc API products: eWallets and Virtual Accounts, Utilities, CashCode, Agency Banking, and Transfers.
“All businesses will evolve into FinTech businesses,” Edmund Olotu, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of TechAdvance, stated. Edmund stated during an internal meeting that "with our APIs, businesses/startups can now offer a range of banking and financial services to their customers." Businesses can increase revenue and maintain profitability by utilizing cash deposits and withdrawals, local and international wallets, recurring payments, cardless withdrawals, bill payments, and individual and bulk transfers”.
Built for speed, ease, and compliance
Bloc provides peace of mind to any startup or corporation in three ways, all of which are built with an obsessive attention to detail.
1. Faster time to market
With Bloc, all of the complications associated with developing and launching a product are eliminated, allowing you to focus entirely on what matters: your product. We hold all necessary licenses and adhere to the strictest security standards necessary to provide you with our API products.
2. Ease of use and integration
Engineers can sign up in minutes and gain access to API products for integration. Additionally, Bloc simplifies deployment, updates, and management, and it is highly compatible with third-party APIs.
3. 100% Compliant
By design, Bloc is secure and protected. Always current, Bloc maintains ISO 27001 and PCI-DSS security certifications, as well as licenses such as the CBN-issued Micro Finance Bank License, the NCC-Value Added Services license, and a PSSP license.
