This collaboration is addressing the financial needs of small businesses in an economic climate where they face more obstacles than ever before
Atom, the UK’s app-based bank, has partnered with Plaid, an Open Finance and data network platform that supports the digital financial ecosystem. They aim to release open banking services to the customers, starting with offering small business owners a simplified application credit process.
Plaid allows customers to securely share their banking information with Atom, allowing for faster response to loan application requests.
It will primarily work with Atom to accelerate the collateralized business lending process for both CBILS ( Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme) and non-CBILS applications.
Plaid’s integration into Atom’s technology platform will also drive new smart savings and lending offerings aimed directly at the market. Combined with smart contract technology and machine learning capabilities, Atom will be able to deliver products that truly fulfill customers in real-time.
