    Synctera Ledger

    Our proprietary, flexible ledger serves as the operating infrastructure and single source of truth for your customer, account, and transaction data

    As the single source of truth, a ledger is a fundamental component of the technology stack for your bank-supported financial product or FinTech app. Most banks and FinTechs manage their accounting processes on inflexible banking systems or basic accounting programs—or they may not have a ledger at all. As a result, related processes like reconciliation can be highly manual and time-consuming. Building a ledger from scratch is complex and can take upwards of a year to complete, while out-of-the-box solutions can be expensive and may require customization.

    Designed specifically to for bank-supported financial products or FinTech apps, Synctera Ledger is a reliable, flexible, cost- effective alternative, serving as the operating infrastructure and book of record for customer, account, and transaction data.
