OpenFin announced the launch of a “Workspace” that consolidates and automates across applications and tasks with one interface. It’s been in a private beta with several major banks and asset managers for three months and is now deployable at more than 2,400 banks, asset managers and hedge funds in which the fintech’s operating system is used.
OpenFin is used by 90% of global financial institutions, with some 3,500 apps deployed on 300k desktops. “Our largest and most tech-savvy bank and buy-side customers are moving to use OpenFin Workspace and this represents a fundamental break from how these firms have operated for decades,” said Mazy Dar, OpenFin’s CEO, in a statement.
Key components of the Workspace include a keyboard-driven digital assistant for app discovery and search; a browser built for work; a rich, actionable notification center; and a customizable app store. OpenFin is backed by Standard Chartered, HSBC, Bain Capital Ventures, Barclays, CME Ventures, DRW Venture Capital, J.P. Morgan, NYCA Partners, Pivot Investment Partners, and Wells Fargo, among others, with total funding to date at $50 million.
