Mambu launches flexible product for SME lenders


To provide easy access to financial services for small businesses, Mambu rolls out new functionality to their banking and lending platform.

London, UK, 27 July 2021: Mambu, the market-leading SaaS cloud banking platform, has unveiled a fully digital solution for SME lenders that cuts costs and time to market.

The platform not only provides banks and fintechs with robust, scalable loan management technology, but also easy access to an ecosystem of partners such as web-based identity authentication, credit checks and loan origination. These partners are vital to lenders wanting to offer speedy loan approvals – a key competitive advantage. 

According to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), it’s estimated that there is an unmet financing need of $5.2 trillion every year across 65 million firms, or 40% of formal micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) globally, with Europe accounting for nearly 15%.

At the same time, there is more pressure on SME lenders to deliver low-risk decisions quickly via a fully digital customer experience. Mambu’s SME lending solution is designed for fast new product launch and offers great flexibility in order to quickly adapt to changes. The solution offers a variety of options to adjust loan conditions in order to support borrowers that are in financial difficulties. This flexibility helps clients to better serve SME companies and to release financial burden during pandemic times.

The benefits of using the Mambu platform to provide this are demonstrated by several pioneering clients. 

Jason Oakley, CEO of Recognise, said: “For too long SMEs have had to do with below average service levels. We know that speed and flexibility are critical for SMEs and the current SME banking providers are no longer fit for purpose. This is why we decided to select a cloud solution early on our journey.”

Tide, the B2B challenger bank, selected Mambu to expand their offering into ledger and lending portfolio management, as well as accounting and reporting across multiple geographies. Tested and launched in three months, the service has garnered more than 250,000 small business users to date. 

Amit Kahana, VP of Credit Services at Tide, “By partnering with Mambu, Tide can now create new products and quickly revamp offerings for customers, including releasing larger overdrafts, credit cards and invoice financing. As a result, we have been able to revolutionise how small businesses manage their money admin.”

Elliott Limb, Mambu’s Chief Customer Officer added: “Small businesses have been greatly affected by the pandemic. Whether that’s starting a new company or growing an existing one, there’s never been a bigger requirement for SME lenders to offer the services their customers need. And with Mambu’s composable approach we provide an agile way for our clients to build and shape new financial services around the businesses they want to help.”
