Contovista, Swiss market leader for data-driven banking and NDGIT, provider of the first API platform for banking and insurance in Europe, are further expanding their cooperation. In addition to a joint project for digital lending process, Contovista can now also be implemented via the German NDGIT API marketplace.
After their successful cooperation for neon, the first independent account app in Switzerland, NDGIT and Contovista are now joining forces again. Goal is to redevelop the digital credit lending process of a German bank and thereby revolutionize the loan sector. NDGIT’s API platform uses Contovista’s Enrichment Engine, to prepare account data of credit applicants using Machine Learning. Previously time-consuming process steps for creating the customer’s self-disclosure are thus automated so the application duration shortens to a minimum. In addition to time savings, relying on data exchange there is another decisive advantage: risks and fraud are minimized.
Results of previous projects confirm, processing and analysis of data also have great impact on the credit business: Contovista technology increased completion rates of personal loans by 69% compared to the retail bank’s conventional sales methods.
Gian Reto á Porta, CEO and co-founder of Contovista, explains: «We are very pleased to have found NDGIT as a valuable, reliable and strategically perfect partner and to have already proven our competence in the area of data-driven banking in our first joint project.»
NDGIT API Marketplace gets growth
Contovista is now also part of the German NDGIT API marketplace and thus quickly and easily available for all banks already connected to the NDGIT API platform such as the “Bank für Sozialwirtschaft”.
Oliver Dlugosch, CEO NDGIT: «Contovista is a great enrichment for our API marketplace and we are very proud to have them as partners. We will only be able to keep our position as the #1 Open Banking Platform by constantly offering the latest, best and smartest applications for banks, Fintech and insurance.»
