Velocity Solutions and Allied Solutions Team up to Offer Innovative Short-Term, Small-Dollar Loan Program to the Financial Marketplace
May 09, 2017

FORT LAUDERDALE --- Velocity Solutions and Allied Solutions announced a strategic partnership
in November 2015 that offered Allied’s extensive network of financial institutions access to Velocity’s dynamic suite of revenue enhancement products.  Allied has added Velocity’s newly-launched lending product, CashPlease™, to their portfolio.  CashPlease™ is an automated small-dollar, short-term loan program that allows banks and credit unions to provide their account holders with easy access to cash at affordable interest rates, while staying compliant and being much more efficient than manual processes. The CashPlease™ platform is offered by Velocity Borrower Logic, LLC, an affiliate of Velocity Solutions.

CashPlease™ is a simple-to-use application that allows consumers to apply for loans 24/7 on their institution’s branded CashPlease™ website or mobile app.  Loan amounts generally range from $100 to $1,500, and do not require a traditional credit check.  An ability-to-repay determination is made by Velocity’s data-driven proprietary algorithm, the underlying technology of which has been used to analyze short-term liquidity on millions of accounts for many years.  Consumers will know immediately whether they are approved for a short-term loan, and the funds will be deposited directly into their account.  

“This innovative new lending solution is a logical addition to our Allied partnership,” said Mike Triggiano, Executive Vice President of Velocity Solutions. “We launched this product because we identified an overlooked consumer market – those who have solid relationships with their financial institution but find that institution can’t serve them for short-term liquidity. Many of these consumers dislike overdraft and want an alternative from the bank or credit union they know best, without having to turn to high-cost lending sources like payday loans.”  Triggiano continued: “Many traditional small-dollar loan offerings are cost and resource-prohibitive for most community financial institutions, so we introduced CashPlease™ as a product that automates short-term loans and fulfills a glaring need in the consumer market, as well as in the banking/credit union space.”

“One of our core values within Allied Solutions is innovation, said Dave Underdale, CMO, Allied Solutions. “We are always looking for new solutions that will add value to our clients. We are happy to team up with Velocity to bring CashPlease™ to our financial institution clients nationwide, providing their account holders a compliant and easy way to access to cash at affordable interest rates.”
