PPS and Talenom join forces to provide banking software with accounting services

Share this post

Listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange since 2015, Talenom provides commercial accounting and bookkeeping solutions across the Finnish and Swedish markets. Its traditional customer base is weighted towards medium size companies, but a strategic focus to increase Talenom’s reach into the SME marketplace has seen the company develop a self-service solution, named ‘Accounting Alex’, which combines accounting software with banking services. The move to supporting smaller businesses highlights Talenom’s commitment to the SME business sector which forms an important part of the European economic landscape.

With the support of PPS, Talenom is filling a gap in the market for alternative business financial services. Through the partnership, Talenom will now be able to integrate financial services into Accounting Alex including both physical and virtual Mastercard payment cards, a Finnish IBAN provided by PPS for all accounts, SPayments Association payments, and electronic bank account statements.

With the strengthened services to the Talenom platform, users can perform bookkeeping and banking services within the same application, a service that other companies in this space have been unable to do before. As a result of working with PPS, small businesses will be able to set up an account in minutes and enable savings on fees by more than 50 percent. This joint solution truly expands and adds value to SME businesses across Finland’s commercial landscape.

Otto-Pekka Huhtala, CEO of Talenom, commented: “Legacy banks in Finland are unchallenged, so we are motivated to offer entrepreneurs and SMEs more flexible and affordable financial services. Given PPS’ commitment to modernise the infrastructures in place for SMEs we knew they would be a great fintech partner for us to work with to achieve our goals. After just one phone call, we knew they believed in our vision, and together with Talenom’s enhanced product portfolio, the future looks very promising.”

Ray Brash, CEO of PPS, added: “We’re delighted to support this next phase of Talenom’s journey by providing SMEs with embedded financial services – this is something very close to our heart. Through the partnership we have bolstered our IBAN offering, and very much support Talenom in its future expansion into other geographies.”

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
