The two fintechs collaborated to launch the latest TotallyMoney API integration in less than one week, meaning millions more can access the product.
Putting the API in rapid integrations
TotallyMoney’s API integration with Fintern harnesses the power of customer data, making sure it works for them and not against them.
This starts with TotallyMoney’s proprietary MatchFactor algorithm, which ranks products based on what’s best and most suitable for its customers. Eligibility checking allows customers to apply with greater confidence, knowing their chances of being accepted. At the same time, guaranteed rates means that a customer will know how much their borrowing will cost them before they apply.
TotallyMoney’s pre-API filters and actionable insights allow Fintern to optimise performance based on data-driven recommendations. When it comes to decision making, Fintern leverages open banking data and AI to analyse their customers’ transaction data, allowing them to open up affordable lending to a much wider audience. This comes at an important time, with many feeling the squeeze of soaring inflation and a looming rise in interest rates.
