API Best Practices for Maximum Performance and Scalability

Whether it's from a bank, credit union, or wealth management firm, developers need to access crucial data without a lot of repeat verifications or data entry. This is why developers rely on APIs to do much of the heavy lifting. Envestnet | Yodlee® offers an API that will retrieve aggregated financial data from global institutions in 17 different countries around the world. It allows app developers and financial institutions to pull all of this data, analyze it, and create personalized and instantly accessible user experiences on the web or via a mobile phone. Our APIs can also provide instant account verification, access travel rewards, advise on investments, and provide personal finance coaching. We even make it possible for app developers to offer instant account verification for accounts, which means users can get up and running in seconds and minutes, not hours and days.
