Presenter Profile:

How they describe themselves: Topicus Finan is an innovative and ambitious IT service provider based in the Netherlands. Our focus is on supporting business lending value chain integration with innovative web-based technology. Topicus Finan delivers out-of-the-box solutions for financial forecasting, credit rating, budgeting, what-if analyses and more. We believe that the loan origination and review process will evolve from an in-office process to a value chain effort. We are convinced that self service is an important factor in keeping operational and risk costs at an affordable level, while increasing transparency and fit with credit demand. A client, bank, or accountant will cooperate to ensure an optimal risk structure for a given loan proposition.

How they describe their product/innovation: Self service for business lending as a service extension to face-to-face advice is something that modern clients expect from a bank. We are demonstrating the impact of self service. The entrepreneur has the option of working with what-if scenarios to assess the financial impact of his investment in real time. A key aspect is that the entrepreneur is not aware of typical banking complexities. Instead, communication is centered on concepts he understands, like the cost of a new machine and turnover growth.
