After working with banking technologies for 20+ years, we’ve launched Modular.Bank, a full lending platform. It covers the entire loan lifecycle from application to final repayment, including a loan account (which can also be used as the current account) and financial accounting for loan events. Modular.Bank includes optional self-service and back-office applications to speed up implementation. Built on microservice architecture, the platform allows you to pick and combine individual modules as needed.
Highly automated, Modular.Bank is the most modern solution for full credit-lifecycle management. It is GDPR- and PSD2-compliant.
- Automated loan-initiation process and applications
- Instant and automatic customer analysis, credit scoring and decision
- Loan-contract managemen
- Automated disbursements and repayments
- Debt collection
- Financial accounting and reporting
As our architecture is modular, it is easy to integrate with third-party solutions such as existing web interfaces, merchant applications, and hire-purchase solutions.
KYC & online onboarding for companies
Online consumer onboarding is the new normal. But when it comes to onboarding businesses, many banks and other service providers still struggle. With a lot of manual input, it can take weeks or months to run background checks and adequately assess companies’ risk levels. We offer a fully-digital KYC platform for onboarding companies. It can be easily integrated with existing bank infrastructure or a variety of SaaS platforms.
- Fully digital online background checks in real time by integrating multiple data sources (AML, terrorist lists, PEP and media monitoring)
- Seamless KYC flow for businesses: personal identity verification and company risk scoring
- Risk model for company risk assessment
Risk management and fraud prevention
Security issues are a major concern for institutions in most industries. If you handle payments and finances, you need rock-solid risk management and fraud prevention. Our solutions use machine learning and AI to help you keep up with fraudsters’ evolving methods.
- Credit scoring
- Fraud detection powered by AI and machine learning
- Real-time accounting and event reporting
- Compliance and regulatory reporting, incl. solid GDPR implementation experience
