Cambridge MASandbox Banking, a trailblazing provider of banking automation solutions that accelerate digital transformation through their Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS), Glyue™, and Plaid, a data network powering the digital financial ecosystem, have announced a partnership that strengthens automated identity verification, addressing key challenges in the financial industry.

Sandbox Banking’s consumer-centric innovation is at the forefront of the digital banking experience. The collaboration focuses on integrating proprietary Customer360 module and customer experience workflows from GlyueTM with Plaid’s cutting-edge Verification solution. Using Plaid’s product, Sandbox Banking provides financial institutions with a comprehensive suite of tools to enhance customer or member engagement, mitigate risks, and fortify account security as banks and credit unions invest in digital banking and transformation strategies.

“Our collaboration marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of financial technology, uniting two industry leaders to drive innovation, elevate end user experiences, and reinforce security measures,” expressed Kelsey Saia, VP of Partnerships at Sandbox Banking. “Bolstering the era of digital transformation in banking, this partnership is shaping a tech experience that is not only secure and efficient but also aligned with the dynamic needs of modern account holders and institutions alike.”

A key highlight of this collaboration is the integration of Plaid’s advanced Identity Verification capabilities with Sandbox Banking’s proprietary Customer Experience workflows.
