Here’s a quick overview of the banking capabilities you can access through Engine. If you’d like to know more, our team are on hand to help with a product demo.

Ledger, done better


Your ledger is an integral part of your core operating system – but for many banks, ledger systems are built on clunky legacy tech. Engine modernises ledger capabilities, ensuring you can track customer accounts, balances, and key events.

  • Customer-level ledger functionality
  • Easily integrated to your general ledger system
  • Reconciliations
  • Manual postings
  • Retrieve FX rates from third parties

Management Portal

We’re proud to offer a wide range of innovative banking capabilities. But we’re not just about helping you build exceptional products – we’re also committed to ensuring your people can manage their tasks effectively.

Management Portal is a browser-based interface that your employees can use to access the functionality provided in Engine. Think of it as a single pane of glass that gives you a holistic view of your customers and processes. (Say goodbye to switching between endless different systems!)

It’s intuitive, clear, and cohesive – and you’ll have full control over access management for different users and teams, including but not limited to:

  • Cards and Card Processing
  • Payments and Payments Processing
  • Customer Support
  • Complaints
  • Data
  • Financial Crime
  • Collections
  • Lending
  • Treasury and Finance
