FactorTrust and Armada Labs Partner to Integrate Services for Lenders


The innovative partnership between FactorTrust, the Alternative Credit Bureau, and Armada Labs—announced today—showcases the use of alternative credit data with custom product and software development, ultimately providing Armada Labs’ lending clients greater ease and access to creditworthy borrowers.

“Consumer lenders cannot rely solely on traditional data sources for credit insights, especially on consumers with scores under a 700 FICO,” said FactorTrust CEO Greg Rable. “This partnership ensures Armada Labs’ consumer lenders have access to FactorTrust’s unique, highly predictive alternative credit data, providing them a more complete, comprehensive consumer profile.”

Armada Labs helps build custom software solutions for consumer lenders, including loan origination systems (LOS) and loan management systems (LMS). FactorTrust is integrating its alternative credit data services into the LOS and LMS systems Armada Labs is building for mutual customers of the partners.

“The integration of the two business systems means minimal to no lead time for clients wanting to use alternative credit data in their loan systems, and eliminates any development work on the customer’s end, getting them online more quickly,” said Armada Labs Chairman and Managing Partner Ralph Ayala. “This partnership with FactorTrust helps us streamline our customers’ lending operations. Not only is the customization desirable for our clients, but the ease of use in having this data pre-built and integrated into the system, removes any potential headaches or downtime clients might face in adding this feature at a later time.”

FactorTrust has long-provided alternative credit data, analytics and risk scoring information that lenders need to make informed decisions about consumers. It is differentiated from the Big 3 bureaus by its more than 250 million unique, behavioral and transactional data points untapped by these traditional sources.

The union comes just before LendIt USA 2017, the world’s largest show in lending and fintech, where FactorTrust is a sponsor and Armada Labs is an exhibitor. Visit FactorTrust at Booth # 555 and Armada Labs at Booth # 422.
