Starling's Engine partners with GFT for B2B SaaS push
Like several successful consumer fintechs, Starling's pivot to also sell its software heralds the potential to eventually eclipse revenue generated by its original business.
Starling's Engine, its banking software service platform that powers Starling Bank, is revving up.
The Software-as-a-Service business has partnered with Stuttgart-based consultancy GFT as it looks to scale up its client roster.
Engine by Starling now has two clients Salt Bank in Romania and AMP Bank in Australia.
Its goal is to provide banks around the world with the cloud native, modular and API-based banking platform that powers Starling’s own UK bank
“We've partnered with GFT for their deep technical skills, platform focus and entrepreneurial approach. As Starling disrupted the UK banking sector, Engine's mission is to empower our clients to do the same in their markets. GFT's global footprint makes them an ideal partner as we scale.” Sam Everington, CEO of Engine by Starling, said.
GFT will help Engine’s with design, integration and implementation services for banks that adopt the Engine platform. “There is huge demand in the market for a proven, scalable system that can help existing banks to re-platform or new banks to launch as quickly as possible," Marika Lulay, CEO of GFT, said.
By combining Engine by Starling's cutting-edge technology with GFT's expertise in systems integration, we will enable organisations across the globe to rapidly launch a state-of-the-art digital bank.”
