Starling Bank has bolstered its business marketplace through the integration of three new platforms.
The marketplace will now welcome Slack, a workplace messaging platform, Bionic, an energy-switching service, and Equipsme, a health insurance provider to its business marketplace.
The three new additions will be available to the digital bank’s 175,000 SME customers.
Slack is a platform that provides business owners with real-time transaction alerts every time they are paid by a customer, or pay a bill.
The integration also allows finance or account management teams without direct access to the Starling business account to see transactions details.
Meanwhile, Bionic powers comparison sites, and helps customers save money through switching their bills. It will provide Starling customers with a platform to arrange their next energy contract from their banking app.
Finally, Equipsme provides health insurance for businesses, and includes phone and video GP appointments and physiotherapy treatment. Private diagnosis, hospital treatment and confidential stress and anxiety support can be added to its plan.
The Starling Marketplace offers 26 complementary services that customers can link to their banking app. These integrations enable customers to synchronise their banking with the rest of their business operations, reducing company admin time.
Anne Boden, founder and CEO of Starling Bank, said: “These new Marketplace integrations allow our customers to save money on utilities, incentivise their staff with health insurance and sync their Starling app with Slack enabling remote real-time communications.”
