Tokens vs. IDs and passwords
Chase Bank is at the forefront of implementing a new technology that will be useful, as I see it, in many ways eventually. But immediately it will allow small businesses and their accounting software, whether that is in-house or through a bookkeeper/accountant to have an easier conversation with their bank accounts. No more hooking a bank account to accounting software like QuickBooks or Xero to allow for the automatic downloading of transactions by using an ID and password sign-on. Instead, the small business will be able to give a token, a connection 'key' to the software, bookkeeper, accountant, etc. to allow them access to their bank transactions.
