Basiq Insights, a level up for lenders

We are proud to announce the launch of our improved affordability solution – Basiq Insights. Leveraging a variety of data sources including Open Banking, our uplifted Insights solution offers a holistic approach to financial data analysis and decision making in the lending industry by bringing together the power of Basiq’s API with the simplicity of a no-code dashboard.

In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, lenders face a multitude of challenges that can hinder their efficiency and effectiveness. From the intricacies of regulatory compliance to the need for technological agility, these challenges demand innovative and adaptable solutions. Basiq Insights emerges as a pivotal tool in addressing these complexities. Let’s explore some of the key challenges in the lending space and how Basiq Insights provides effective solutions:

  • Manual Assessments and Accuracy Issues: Automated solutions reduce the reliance on manual methods, enhancing accuracy and security.
  • Disjointed Customer Experience: Streamlined data processing improves the customer journey in loan applications.
  • Navigating Regulatory Obligations: Compliance becomes more manageable with automated data handling and open banking integration.
  • Overcoming Technological Limitations: The combination of API and no-code dashboard ensures that lenders are not left behind due to outdated tech stacks.

Lenders using decisioning platforms that solely rely on screen scraping will be left without access to their customers’ financial information as banks move to use Open Banking.

The dashboard provides access to data aggregation, enrichment, and insights, all without requiring specialised coding skills or the development of custom applications.
