BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Radius Bank, a forward-thinking digital bank, today announced the recent launch of its enhanced online business banking platform and mobile app for small businesses. The revamped user experience is the result of the bank’s ongoing partnership with New York-based fintech company Narmi, which also powers Radius’ consumer online banking and associated mobile app.
Two and a half years ago, the Bank added an online account opening app that allows small businesses to digitally open a bespoke current account in less than 10 minutes from anywhere in the country. Following the growth and success of the product, the natural next step in Radius’ technology roadmap was a seamless online and mobile banking experience for their small and medium-sized business (SME) portfolio.

“Offering a best-in-class commercial digital banking solution is a problem for the majority of banks today. Often businesses are forced to leverage outdated platforms to meet their banking needs. The result is a broken relationship between financial institution and the business, which ultimately benefits no one,” says Nikhil Lakhanpal, co-founder of Narmi. “With business in mind, Narmi’s business banking platform delivers functionality, intuitiveness and flexibility in the hands of Radius’ corporate customers. In turn, banks like Radius can spend more time focusing on digital deposits, profitability and customer growth.”
