PLATFORM ADVANTAGE

Better underwriting benefits lenders and borrowers alike. We invest our analytical horsepower toward ensuring that we have the most accurate underwriting available, keeping the cost of borrowing as low as possible for those for whom it matters most.

ANALYTICS ADVANTAGE

Ours is the first platform to employ Adaptive Data Fusion™ – used historically for advanced scientific applications – to transform complex streams of data from multiple sources into meaningful inferences. Because each customer transaction is inherently different, involving a unique purchase, unique variables and a distinct point in time, our platform produces superior results underwriting on a per-transaction basis rather than underwriting based solely on the individual.

DATA ADVANTAGE

Our platform gets smarter and more experienced with new data. With over a million transactions already under our belt, the our engine is the smartest around – combining billions of pieces of structured and unstructured data, built by the same people who developed the fraud detection system protecting over 2 billion credit cards worldwide.

We serve consumers in a respectful and ethical way, encouraging responsible behavior to help improve the financial standing of our customers. Our portfolio of brands include:

workpays.me

workpays.me is an e-Commerce platform that promotes financial wellness and enables individuals to make quality-of-life purchases through hassle-free deductions. Individuals have the opportunity to purchase thousands of name-brand products and services with the flexibility to pay over time through direct or payroll deductions.

Lending Stream

Lending Stream provides four to six-month emergency term loans with instant decisions and same-day cash through the internet or mobile devices. Since 2008, Lending Stream has grown to become one of the top five short-term, online lenders in the United Kingdom.

CULTURE

Our team is global, stretching from the California coast to the heart of Chennai. We enjoy our diversity, and are bound together by a culture of innovation, intellectual rigor, mentorship, openness, humility and humor.
