Ladonware Announces Name Change to Open Banking Solutions
The strategic rebrand represents the company’s commitment to helping small and mid-sized financial institutions deliver an enhanced customer experience and better serve their communities through digital transformation

Ladonware, a global leader in cloud solutions for the financial services community, announced the change of its corporate name to ‘Open Banking Solutions.’ The Company’s new brand identity reflects the significant member-experience updates that have already gone into effect across its platform. These enhancements better address the accelerated digital transformation within the US banking and finance industry and focus on the unique needs and interest of its members. Especially as US credit unions and community banks are in a state of need for modern core technology, Open Banking Solutions is better connecting consumers, small businesses, devices, and financial institutions with transparency, security, and a refreshed digital experience.

“Service is everything. We live in a mobile-driven and digital world, where providing trusted, open and seamless access to customers’ financial and banking services are no longer a strong benefit, but a cultural and business mandate to stay relevant, successfully compete and support customers,” said Open Banking Solutions CEO Ignacio Blanco. “Our new brand identity is the culmination of an enhanced strategic approach and commitment to helping community banks and credit unions rapidly transform, while delivering an outstanding customer experience and breadth of open services.”
