💡 Take a look at some of our common use cases for ideas on what you can build with Woodcore.


Who can use Woodcore?

Woodcore is exclusively for registered organizations or businesses building any product that requires banking capabilities. Your organization does not have to be a licensed bank to integrate Woodcore. An individual running a sole entrepreneurial business that is registered can use Woodcore for its banking operations.


Woodcore Usage

There are two major ways users can access and integrate our service. These include:

  • The Woodcore console(UI)

The Woodcore console is an interactive core banking user interface where organizations can set up, monitor, and manage their daily banking operations. The console provides a single source of information for all transactions and customer data allowing your organization to provide efficient services to their customers. With the console, you do not have to build your banking application interface from scratch, you can configure and customize the console to suit your banking needs.


  • The Woodcore APIs.

Woodcore provides a wide range of APIs to able you to carry out fully fletched banking operations. Users who have access to the APIs can perform a variety of operation, which includes, customer creation, customer account creation, loan, deposits, system configuration, etc. We have made available a well-detailed and concise API reference that provides, the endpoints, authorization, and configuration required for you to get started with the Woodcore APIs.

There are certain operations on the system which require the use of both the API and the console such as the generation of API keys. The Woodcore API key is generated on the console and used by the API for authentication. See the User Module for more information.


Security

We place security and access to the console at a high value. To access the console, Woodcore requires an authentication process in place using an authenticator application. Ensure you have the Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or any other authenticator application.

The authentication code expires after 30 seconds.
