Yodlee (Nasdaq:YDLE), the cloud-based platform driving innovation in digital financial services, today launched the Yodlee Small Business PartnerHub, giving business owners access to a suite of tools - including lending, invoicing, and travel and expense management - through a secure financial portal.
CAN Capital, Inc., a market share leader in alternative small business finance, is the first of many third-party partner services that will be integrated into the Hub. CAN Capital offers fast access to funding via an instant quote based solely on financial data and payment information, helping businesses and entrepreneurs qualify for more money while lowering risk for lenders.
"We know that businesses want more from their banking services. The Hub model is a unique way to integrate disparate but innovative apps into a seamless, secure experience specially designed for businesses," said Greg Weddell, Business Banking Practice Manager at Yodlee. "Businesses are now able to get ALL their financial management services through the cloud using the Yodlee Platform and by leveraging it, financial institutions are able to bring more services to their customers, simply and securely, improving satisfaction and increasing revenue."
The Yodlee Small Business PartnerHub gives financial institutions an easy way to offer innovative third party business services and applications to their customers in an integrated white label solution.

• Loans and Financing
