Financial services providers, including banks, building societies and mortgage lenders can now benefit from a suite of pre-built, low-code applications thanks to a strategic partnership between ieDigital, one of the UK’s leading financial technology providers, and low-code specialist, OutSystems, a leader in the modern application platform space.

The power of the OutSystems platform enables changes to be driven swiftly, meaning clients will be able to react quickly to market movements, or take innovative new products to market rapidly.
