According to CEO and Co-founder Neel Juriasingani, “Datacultr platform is a win-win for lenders and customers, providing lenders with a secure and cost-effective way to access a new customer base, while also offering a practical and easy way to access credit to end borrowers. The platform was designed to provide a seamless debt collection experience and has the goal of bringing more individuals into financial inclusion. Datacultr was launched in 2020 and allows lenders to convert a borrower’s smartphone into a highly effective engagement and collections tool, thus reducing fraud and collection expenses. Integrating loan management systems through simple APIs makes it easy for lenders to automate the process and access a previously untapped customer base”.
Datacultr is the ideal solution for lenders seeking to enter the market of “New to Credit” customers. The platform facilitates credit-making decisions and repayments, enabling banks and lending organizations to offer loans to this group in an economical manner. With the goal of expanding financial inclusion, Datacultr aims to bring more people into the financial system.
Increasing customer adoption of digital technology and higher engagement in digital communication is boding well for financial institutions focused on the new to credit and other thin-file customers. It is not just driving down costs; it’s bringing in efficiencies not touched using traditional call and connects processes and channels.
