Marketplace News

End-User Marketing

The marketplace has a dedicated resource committed to end-user Marketing. Mikel Weigel’s role as End-User Adoption Specialist for Marketplace is ultimately to be a marketing consultant for the FIs that launch Marketplace and the apps that follow. She does this by working with each partner app as they onboard to obtain from them all the necessary marketing assets FIs would use to promote the partners to their end-users to encourage adoption and engagement. As each FI launches Marketplace and partners, she will guide the FIs on the recommended marketing channels that are effective at garnering adoption. She can continue to measure success and end-user engagement through various reporting capabilities and provide those to the FI. Another area Mikel coordinates is FI enablement. She does this by working with the partners to provide meaningful training documents or videos available to the FIs to make sure their front-line staff is educated and can answer top-level questions and know where to find more information for each partner in the Marketplace.

2021 Q4 Caliper SDK Training

The 2021 Q4 Caliper SDK training was the largest training to date. A total of 19 trainees represent every element of the Innovation Studio. Q2 folk, Custom Development employees, Fintech Partners, and of course the majority being developers for FIs. The unified SDK allowed the training to have a consistent message, and every attendee learned the SDK. For more information on the course see the training agenda page and how to sign up your team for our next session, please visit the training page.

Enhanced SSO docs

There is now documentation for doing a more proper SSO. By proper SSO, the environment is directly integrated and linked into online banking without a customer being required to have another account with the external service. This has always been possible, there is now official documentation on a guided way to do it here.

Central Extensions now work with update_installed

Developers now can run the command q2 update_installed to update parts of their central extension. This can be used to change various extension install configurations.

DBO upgrades

Vendor Config – The VendorConfig DBObject can now have the “description” column updated.

User and Customer – The User and Customer DBObjects now have update methods.
