The aim of the Avaloq Developer Portal is to grow a developer community and enable it to create, share and commercialise innovative technologies. Results will be shared with both the developer community and the entire Avaloq Community, which includes 450 banks and wealth managers throughout the world.

Participating developers will contribute to improving standards of financial services by adding new ideas and helping to develop user experience based on the industry leading Avaloq Banking Suite. Members will be granted access to software and documentation previously only available to Avaloq customers in order to to create user interfaces and integrated applications (Banklets™).

Additionally, banks will benefit from joint innovation to enhance their digital client experience and augment products.

What is a Banklet™?

A Banklet™ is a functional building block in the digital user journey that can be used by both bank employees and clients. Banklet™ functionality can be purely informational (e.g. market data) or it can include transactional elements (e.g. payments). They can be customised to the style requirements of the bank, but are limited in terms of flexibility of their features.
