Velocity unveils new Akouba website, marketing campaign to support increased demand in digital lending

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (March 5, 2019) — In response to strong market demand, Velocity Solutions, LLC, the leading provider of revenue enhancement solutions to regional and community financial institutions, unveiled a new website and digital marketing campaign for its Akouba digital lending platform. Akouba is a secure cloud-based SaaS platform that allows financial institutions to underwrite loans through the digital channel, regardless of device, time or location.

Understanding this growing market need, Velocity Solutions is committed to supporting both financial institutions and the banking industry. The new Akouba website provides not only detailed information about the platform and the solutions it can offer, but also features news and resources about today’s digital lending environment, including a new white paper on the business opportunities for financial institutions around small and medium sized business (SMB) lending. Velocity is also launching a new digital advertising campaign in Q1 and Q2 of 2019 to help further expand its message and drive traffic to the new site.

“This is an exciting time to launch the website, as we’ve recently introduced several new features to the Akouba platform that are resonating well with the marketplace,” said Chris Rentner, Director of Digital Lending for Velocity Solutions, LLC. “We’ve added an automated financial analysis and spreading feature that eliminates the need to manually spread deals, a renewal/reviews solution that can save lenders as much as 50% in time and cost and enhanced data-driven marketing and targeting options that can better identify in-market prospects.”

Akouba is a true, end-to-end digital lending solution that provides financial institutions with a full suite of capabilities, supporting all digital lending needs and delivering a fast, seamless loan experience to both borrowers and lenders. The single omnichannel platform handles the entire loan process, while giving the financial institution complete control over all aspects, including pricing, credit policies, and risk metrics. This enhanced functionality minimizes cost, time and risk for all parties and maximizes loan approvals. Akouba is also the only small business digital lending solution endorsed by the American Bankers Association (ABA).

“Today, the market demand for effective, powerful digital lending solutions is stronger than ever, and financial institutions need the right platform to compete and succeed,” said Rentner. “Our new Akouba website and marketing initiatives will allow us to reach these institutions and provide them with the tools they need to quickly and easily adapt to industry changes and create fast, seamless lending experiences.”
