Nearly 70 companies presented new products at the event, which showcases some of the best new innovations in financial and banking technology from a mixture of leading, established companies and brand-new start-ups. While all of the presenters showed off some interesting technology, Bank Systems & Technology selected five of the most relevant and noteworthy to the financial services industry.

MasterCard announced a new partnership this week with Linkable Networks, a card offers-and-rewards company, and the two gave a sneak peek of what the partnership will entail during Finovate.

Customers will be able to download offers with their mobile phones as well, by scanning a QR code or entering the coupon number manually.
