Presenter Profile:

Nostrum Group provides technology and processing services to the consumer lending industry. Based in the UK, and we are the market leader in providing digital solutions to this sector. Our mission is to leverage technology to make lending cheaper, faster and safer for lenders and more accessible to consumers. Our SaaS solution focuses on automation and self-serve models. Access to the loan engine’s rich functionality across origination, decision making, payments and collections is facilitated through a full stack web API, making adoption quick, easy, reducing time to market and driving product and service innovation.


Nostrum Loan Engine API

Nostrum is pleased to present the latest picture of UK consumer lending and how its loan engine web API is driving increased adoption of digital lending strategies, not only for banks and finance companies, but also in a very interesting case study, where spreading payment over a structured schedule is providing benefits to customer and supplier alike, alongside a cellular mobile airtime contract. A deep dive into the structure and behavior of the web API in one particular use-case is on the agenda, and we shall see live transactions being executed, in detail.
