EEI Launched a Data Aggregation and Management Platform in Partnership with Xero and Square 1 Bank

[Press Release] October 7th, 2015 in San Francisco Enterprise Engineering, Inc. (EEI) announced the launch of its Trusted Network Platform – an advanced data aggregation and management platform, consisting of a core engine and a robust API. EEI, with partners Xero and Square 1 Bank, publicly unveiled the new platform via an onstage demo at FinDEVr 2015.

Financial institutions need a fast and secure way of providing their clients with a single, customized view of all their financial data. Arthur Wasson, SVP, Global Treasury Management said, "At Square 1, our goal is to empower our clients to interact with us in ways that are intuitive to them – whether it's online through their desktops or mobile devices, through 3rd party applications such as Xero, or via direct connections. EEI's Trusted Network solution offers a platform upon which we can achieve this goal." Providing access and maintaining privacy of a client's data has always been a challenge. Now, with the EEI Trusted Network, you can deliver a single, secure, holistic view of all client assets, even those held away.

- EEI has created an advanced aggregation platform that delivers real-time information and is hosted in a secure cloud environment.

- EEI's Trusted Network supports the best authentication mechanism by utilizing OAuth 2.0 - the de facto industry standard for user authentication.

- The Trusted Network provides direct connect mechanisms to obtain data and does not rely on the more expensive and flawed method of screen scraping.

- The Trusted Network Platform communicates with any financial institution using industry standard messaging formats and implements business rules to enhance the information.

EEI's Trusted Network exceeds client expectations by intelligently aggregating data, and enabling banks to connect to advanced platforms such as Xero, while fiercely protecting the privacy of the data. The Trusted Network powers an unparalleled client experience along with digital intelligence for the enterprise through an intelligent, secure and flexible platform.

"Reconciliation of bank statements in Xero is vitally important to ensuring accuracy of financial statements," said Dinesh Katyal, Director of Product, U.S. Banking Services at Xero. "EEI's Trusted Network enables Xero to securely and reliably import statements directly from the banks, thus avoiding costly errors and saving our customers time and money."
