On February 10, Strands joined 72 of the world's most innovative FinTechs selected to demo Strands Discovery at Finovate Europe in London. Two weeks later, Finovate waves are still resonating through the FinTech world.
Finovate was a watershed moment for Strands. We took the spotlight on Day 2 to launch Strands Discovery.
The innovative beauty of Strands Discovery is that it empowers business bank employees – not just Big Data experts – to explore every kind of data to find nuances, patterns and behavioral insights instantly and interactively. Gone are the million-row spreadsheets or thousand-page reports that answer limited number of questions. Thanks to this solution, bankers can directly explore customer insights and view results as comprehensive graphics in a modern, web-based application. What’s more, it’s designed to integrate perfectly within your existing banking infrastructure – no need to build anything from scratch. Check out the explainer video below:
Strands Chief Innovation Officer Marc Torrens, who was interviewed by Fintech Finance at the event, said: "There is a disconnection between banks and customers, Big Data and helps bridge that gap. Finovate Europe is the ideal place to spread the news about Discovery. It's also great to encounter new ideas, and offers many opportunities to contact with other innovative companies and banks in general."

With just 7 minutes to demo, Marc and Luis revealed Discovery to an unprecedented crowd of over 1500 FinTech innovators, banking professionals and analysts. Watch the entire demo below:
