The complementarities between the Linedata and Loansquare platforms enables us to satisfy this need in a truly innovative way, connecting banks and borrowers with the same user experience and standards demanded by consumers in their dealings with institutions", adds François Lévy, Loansquare CEO.
Loansquare now interoperates with Linedata Uniloan360, a servicing platform for commercial and syndicated loans, Linedata Capitalstream, a global commercial loans origination and risk management platform, and Linedata Ekip360, a global leasing, car finance and consumer loans solution.
