Customer News: First Bank Partners with FintechOS to Launch the SME Creditum App
The app simplifies the analysis of funding applications for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
First Bank has recently launched the SME Creditum app, with FintechOS as technology partner.
The app allows the bank to simplify the lending process. Thus, for legal entities in need of financing, the approval time of credit is reduced by up to 80%. It follows a successful initiative last year by First Bank to streamline the lending process for micro-enterprises with a turnover of up to €1 million.
The digital transformation was possible with the help of FintechOS technology, by aggregating data from multiple external sources and automatically analysing the information collected.
“SME Creditum and Micro Creditum are digital solutions that enable the transition from manual processes to optimizations based on the latest technologies, and innovations that support and strengthen our bank’s strategy, “Digital with a human touch”. There has been a fundamental change in the way business is conducted. Consumer behaviors have changed and, naturally, so have their needs. To remain relevant is to follow closely the journey taken by a customer in relation to the bank and to make this customer journey coherent and relevant. When a client evaluates a financial institution, they no longer compare the banks with each other, but the experiences offered by them. Therefore, the experience we offer to the client is essential.” Mădălina Teodorescu, Vice President, First Bank.
“The needs of SMEs evolved during the pandemic, and the need to quickly access finance has become a key factor for many companies. To meet the demand banks quickly turned to fast, flexible and personalized lending solutions. We are honored for being able to accompany First Bank in this process. FintechOS has also adapted quickly to the new needs of the financial industry, and our solution offers even more agility to the process of personalization of products and services. The partnership with First Bank for SME Creditum app launch confirms our common mission, that of being truly customer-centric organizations.” Andrei Găman, VP Commercial Europe FintechOS.
