Cloud Lending Solutions provides end-to-end loan and leasing technology that digitizes every aspect of the lending process including origination, underwriting, servicing, and collections. Built natively on Salesforce.com, the company’s solutions enable FIs to leverage the cloud to provide alternative financing to unbanked and underbanked communities worldwide.
