Starling Bank teams up with PwC to push Engine
More partnerships for the bank’s software-as-a-service subsidiary
Professional services giant PwC has formed a strategic alliance with Engine by Starling Bank to offer its software-as-a-service platform to clients around the world.
It’s the second such move by Engine this week, after teaming up with Stuttgart-based consultancy GFT on Monday, as the fintech increasingly shifts towards partnerships as opposed to directly selling its platform.
“Partnering with PwC, a leader in professional services, will be crucial in helping to deliver Engine, our cutting-edge digital banking platform, to customers around the world,” Sam Everington, CEO of Engine by Starling said.
“PwC combines an incredible breadth of strategic knowledge with hands-on experience driving business model transformations using the Engine platform.”
Last month Engine announced its first two clients, Romania-based Salt Bank and Australia’s AMP Bank, with SME and consumer banking propositions launching in 2024 and 2025 respectively.
“Engine provides a generational-leap forward for digital banking technology in terms of both customer and employee experiences,” Alex Price, digital platforms director at PwC UK said.
“Combining our deep expertise with this cutting-edge technology is an exciting shift in the way that we solve complex problems for our clients.”
