As announced today, the SME business banking platform Penta decided to close its business operations in Italy to focus on their core market in Germany. finleap connect will take over the great team.
“finleap connect is already a strong partner for banks and SMEs in Europe. Now, we are building on this strength in Italy by adding valuable team members and further expanding our expertise. We are very happy to keep their know-how and deep understanding of SMEs’ needs within the finleap ecosystem and look forward to reshaping SME banking services together”, says Marco Berini, General Manager finleap connect Italy.
Digitization and globalization have dramatically changed, but existing banking products have remained the same. This is where finleap connect identified an increasing market need and decided to enhance its product offering to banks – building digital banking solutions dedicated to their SME customers.

From the banks’ point of view, these enhanced banking solutions also enable them to create a strong USP and to clearly differentiate themselves from their competitors.
