Equiniti, a leading provider of specialist software products and services for financial services firms, today announces that it has entered into an agreement to provide its Core Pancredit technology to Axcess Financial Europe (AFE), for its new online portal Square Today.
Square Today is a new lender in the UK loans market providing customers with simple, easy to manage short term loans.
Equiniti’s Core Pancredit is a complete loan application, servicing and collections solution which integrates with a range of third party systems to support the loan application process.

Graham Donald, MD of Equiniti Pancredit, said: “I am delighted to be announcing this new collaborative relationship. The technology we are providing to Square Today will make it easier and quicker for people to apply for a loan and demonstrates Equiniti’s ability to provide technology solutions that help our clients compete and improve their customers’ experience.
