Human beings can do a lot of things really well, but there is nothing we do better than growing on a consistent basis. This tendency to improve under all circumstances has notably enabled us to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a major member of the stated group. The reason why technology enjoys such an esteemed stature among people is, by and large, based on its skill-set, which ushered us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we dig a little deeper, it should become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real-world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a tech revolution. Of course, this revolution then went on to scale up the human experience from every conceivable direction, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, technology will somehow continue to deliver the goods. The same has become a lot more evident in recent times, and assuming a new collaboration works out just like envisioned, it will only turn that trend into something much bigger and better moving forward.

Ascenum Inc, an innovative B2B Marketplace for Small to Midsize Businesses (SMBs) seeking high-impact services, has officially partnered with Q2 Holdings to scale up the services available at the disposal of SMB community. Under the agreed terms, Ascenum will integrate with Q2’s Digital Banking Platform to help US-based Financial Institutions in connecting their SMB clients to curated service providers for Growth Capital, functional Operations Improvement, Fractional C-suite support, and Exit/Sale Advisors. Apart from that, the company also confirmed its participation in the Q2 Partner Marketplace. But what really drove Ascenum to make the latter move? Well, you see, Q2 marketplace is best known for allowing financial services providers, who are leveraging the Q2 SDK, to pre-integrate their technology into the company’s Digital Banking platform. This, in turn, empowers a user to purchase solutions from a versatile pool of partners and rapidly deploy standardized integrations.

When requested for a comment on the partnership, TJ Letarte, CEO and Founder at Ascenum, responded by saying:

“Q2 is the ideal partner to enable Financial Institutions to expand their SMB client relationships with service options that support SMB growth, performance and value creation. When SMBs need help at business-defining moments, they can quickly, privately, and without solicitation, be matched to providers curated by Ascenum that align with their specific service need and business characteristics.”

Fair enough, founded back in 2004, Q2 Holdings is a trusted name on the banking block due to its ability to let banks, credit unions, alternative finance, and fintech companies access a cutting-edge brand of digital banking and lending solutions. The company’s end-to-end solutions ensure that it succeeds in delivering a comprehensive, and yet outright secure, experience to every single customer.

“We are pleased to welcome Ascenum to the Q2 Partner Marketplace,” said Johnny Ola, managing director of the Q2 Innovation Studio. “Financial Institutions now have the capability to offer Ascenum’s marketplace of providers to their SMB customers through their digital banking applications.”

Ascenum, on its part, has a long history of supporting SMBs through wide-ranging avenues. However, given the newly-added Q2’s technical prowess, the company should now viably hope to make its initiative a lot more impactful than ever before.
