Pintec provides real-time credit assessment based on internal and external data sources for financial institutions. After customers complete online applications for installment loans, the whole process takes only a few minutes.

Pintec has accumulated rich experience in serving telecom operators. Before this, Pintec cooperated with China Telecom and China Mobile, providing them with widely proven digital installment loan solutions. We have gained deep understanding of telecoms, their customers, and the mobile phone market through years of field research and training in hundreds of cities across Chinarn
