SAN JOSE, Calif. – Presenters representing startups and existing companies each had seven minutes to present new products to potential partners, investors and buyers at FinovateSpring 2015 in San Jose, Calif.
The presentations moved rapidly and the presenters spoke quickly as they tried to cram as much information as possible into their allotted time slots.
Here’s a quick look at a baker’s dozen of presentations CU Times caught at the conference:
1. The New York City-based Lendkey introduced a process that helps consumers complete the online loan process from start to finish. Many consumers reportedly shop for loans online, but very few buy online, the company said. The current process collects consumer information, provides pricing, but ultimately transfers the borrower somewhere else. Lendkey allows consumers to browse, customize, compare and complete the entire loan shopping process via a single interface. It is a turnkey platform designed to launch quickly.
2. Pleasanton, Calif.’s SayPay Technologies is a Voice Biometric Payment solution in which users can authorize eCommerce purchases, P2P, bill pay, and other transactions by speaking into a unique, one-time crypto-token generated at run time into the mobile app. SayPay payment can be initiated, authenticated, authorized and confirmed in as little as 10 seconds, without the need for customer sign-in.
3. Another New York City-based company, Moven, offers a mobile app that provides instant feedback on transactions and spending patterns to help customers drive savings and short-term credit. Moven just announced a collaboration with Dublin, Ireland-based Accenture to develop digital banking capabilities such as next-generation account opening, biometric authentication and real-time marketing.
4. The Redwood City, Calif.-based Yodlee, a provider of digital financial solutions including personal financial management, presented YodleeSense, which utilizes behavioral psychology and data clustering. The solution helps automate chores, makes personalized recommendations and provides advice.
5. The Dedham, Mass.-based Frameworks, launched a commercial lending solution that enables nearly real-time development of enterprise-scale solutions.
