Case study

Westpac Banking Corporation (Westpac) was founded in 1817 and was the first bank established in Australia. Westpac Group's portfolio of financial services brands and businesses is focused on a common purpose - delighting 11.8 million customers and helping them achieve their financial goals.

Westpac Online Banking offers a range of enhanced features to help the customer bank with ease. Using eWise Money Manager through their online banking solution, customers can view their accounts with other banks and institutions in one place - including eBay, PayPal, rewards schemes, store cards, loans and mortgages.

We have done a lot of research and what our customers were asking was to take control of account aggregation themselves. We believe this will hit the spot.
