US-based Banking-as-a-Service platform Synctera has announced the launch of the Bring Your Own Bank (BYOB) model, intending to improve the customer experience further. 

With a commitment to facilitate enhanced relationships between its customers and their sponsor bank, Synctera developed a technology platform and a marketplace that allows them to launch banking products. Considering the demand for a complete stack for building banking products, while leveraging a sponsor bank outside of the Synctera network, the company introduced the BYOB model. As the Synctera Platform was created to be flexible and extensible, the company’s decision to launch did not require any material changes.
