The open models of the financial sector, such as Open Banking and Open Accounting (both inside Open Finance), have meant a change in terms of quality and speed in the supply of products and services. In particular, Open Accounting has made it possible to change the transparency of the financial sector.
Due to these advantages, the accounting software market is growing at an expansion rate of 8.6% per year, and is valued at around 12 billion dollars. Read on to find out why this huge growth is due.
Defining Open Accounting
Open accounting consists of sharing an organization’s data with financial entities, in a centralized, standardized and structured manner. This allows all relevant data to be available for viewing, in real time.
It must be made clear that this is always done with the consent of those involved and that it seeks to reinforce the Open Banking model, allowing access to the accounting books of the users.
The impact of Open Accounting on transparency and trust
For banks and financial institutions alike, the utility of this tool is considerable. The access to data provided by Open Accounting allows them to change the way they relate to their users.
The centralized administration of users’ financial information affects the way in which financial institutions offer their products. Thanks to the information, they can better understand their customers and provide them with products that are personalized to their needs.
To the extent that these entities can know in detail the needs of their clients, the financing granting processes are significantly more transparent. Financial institutions can better assess credit risk while presenting simpler and clearer application processes to their clients.
This same transparency that Open Accounting allows generates a great impact in the world of finance thanks to the high level of trust that it allows in the relationship between those who request financing and those who grant it.
For those who grant financing, they can know quickly and in detail the background of any applicant, thanks to a complete credit report. In this way, they can make decisions with greater security when granting a loan, generating greater confidence in their clients.
At the same time, for those who request financing, being able to have clearer, faster and simpler application processes allows them a better relationship with economic entities. As the complexity of the procedures is reduced and the application requirements are relaxed, they can access better products that better suit their needs.
In this way, for the mutual benefit of the parties involved, the financial sector is empowered thanks to open accounting. Thus, more SMEs can access resources and the risk for credit institutions is reduced.
