Improved banking connections - All versions

250K Desktop SMBs use online banking in QBDT to download their bank transactions. QBDT uses traditional methods of connecting to the bank - via bank servers, as opposed to how a Mint, TT or QBO connects to them - via APIs. Traditional methods are prone to security concerns, stability of connections and therefore banks are slowly moving away towards API based connectivity. This initiative helps QBDT transition existing connections of banking to a modern platform to solve for these concerns.
