Use case videos

Here are some shorts clips from our members Ordo, Bottomline Technologies, Tink as well as non-members Ecospend and Minna explaining their use case/open banking story and how it is solving a problem for their business. Our Project Open Banking team will use these videos for the Use Case Guidebook published in October 2021 in partnership with Discover Global Network.
