Q2 Releases Caliper SDK, Enabling Customers to Customize and Extend Q2 Platform

Caliper SDK gives financial institutions the tools, knowledge and access necessary to build their own digital banking experiences

August 14, 2018Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of secure, experience-driven digital banking solutions for community-focused financial institutions, announced today the release of Q2 Caliper SDK, a comprehensive toolkit designed to enable FIs to customize and extend the Q2 Platform to meet their account holders’ expectations and specific needs.

“The Caliper SDK is the latest example of Q2’s broader shift toward leveraging open technology to simplify and accelerate our architecture model,” said Adam Blue, chief technology officer at Q2. “Caliper grants financial institutions a level of knowledge, control and accessibility they haven’t had previously. FIs with varying degrees of development capability can now build their own features and functionality on top of the Q2 Platform to meet their customers’ evolving demands.”

Unlike many other software development kits, the Caliper SDK contains the same tools Q2 developers have consumed internally for more than seven years, allowing FIs the ability to develop and customize their own digital banking solutions quickly and easily.

“Q2 enables our FI to offer our members the ability to bank the way they want to bank, when they want to bank,” said Brad Hutchinson, director of application development for Georgia United Credit Union. “We utilized Caliper to create a balance transfer form and a courtesy pay form for quick go-lives. Being able to do it ourselves with the SDK turned out to be the right move, and it’s already paid for itself.”

While many SDKs offer scarce support, limited capabilities and few customization options, Caliper can be utilized by development teams of any size and contains various components and levels of accessibility to effectively cater to FIs, including:

  • Q2 Caliper SDK access, in which developers can integrate workflows inside the Q2 Platform. Users can create their own custom, branded workflows or choose from existing ones;
  • A growing community of developers who share knowledge, best practices, solutions and experiences;
  • Access to Q2’s APIs, allowing FIs to interact with the Q2 Platform using programs written and deployed outside of the Q2 datacenter;
  • Training and certification programs led by Q2 Development staff;
  • Code review and deployment, including security, functionality and reviews for proper coding techniques;
  • Development support from Q2 Development staff with experience using the SDK and writing against Q2’s APIs.

AUSTIN, Texas (May 8, 2018)—Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of secure, experience-driven digital banking solutions for community-focused financial institutions (FIs), today launched Biller Direct, a modern, card-enabled payment solution designed to consolidate and present direct biller relationships and provide a new revenue model for financial services providers.

Q2 and StoneCastle Partner with MoneyLion to Offer Deposit Accounts and Debit Cards

Cambr enables MoneyLion to expand product roadmap and enhance value for Plus customers

AUSTIN, Texas (April 24, 2018)—Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO) and StoneCastle Partners, LLC (“StoneCastle”) today announced a long-term deal with MoneyLion, Inc., the financial operating system revolutionizing the way middle-class Americans save, invest and build their credit.

MoneyLion will utilize Cambr to power their recently announced deposit accounts and debit cards, expanding customer relationships and creating new monetization opportunities via robust interest and interchange revenues.

“Historically only the wealthiest investors have had access to technology-driven tools to serve their financial needs, leaving a vast majority of Americans without the ability to take control of their finances,” said MoneyLion CEO and co-founder, Dee Choubey. “Most of our two-million-plus customers use our service on a daily basis to save, borrow and invest. We look forward to working with StoneCastle and Q2 and their Cambr product to help drive the next generation of what financial services should look, feel and even think like.”

Cambr seamlessly integrates Q2 Open’s digital processing platform (CorePro), StoneCastle’s deposit platform of more than 800 community banks (StoneCastle Deposit Network), and strategic relationships with partner financial institutions (FIs) that serve as banks of record. Through Cambr, non-bank companies—like MoneyLion—can offer banking products to their customers at scale while distributing their deposits to FDIC insured community banks.

“Fintech companies like MoneyLion are pushing the envelope for innovation in this space, and are reaching customer segments most traditional financial institutions are challenged to serve,” said Matt Flake, CEO of Q2. “On the other hand, these fintechs need the regulatory infrastructure and know-how that only traditional FIs can provide. We believe there is tremendous opportunity for cooperation between these groups, and we are trying to facilitate that through Cambr.”
