LEVERAGE partners with Ranqx to revolutionize small business lending for credit unions

TALLAHASSEE, FL (November 1, 2023) — Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) form the cornerstone of our economy, yet they often grapple with outdated, convoluted loan application processes that stymie their progress. These cumbersome procedures not only impede SMB owners but also place an immense manual underwriting burden on credit unions.

LEVERAGE, the service corporation for the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates (LSCU & Affiliates), is thrilled to announce its partnership with Ranqx, a leading provider of cutting-edge digital lending solutions. This strategic alliance aims to transform small business lending, providing credit unions with the tools they need to streamline their processes and offer swift, efficient lending solutions to SMBs.

The Ranqx Digital Lending Platform offers a plethora of advantages, including:

  1. Digital Application and Auto Decision in Minutes: By automating the lending process, credit unions can deliver loan decisions to their members within five minutes, 24/7.
  2. Cloud Native API-First Solution: Real-time APIs eliminate paperwork, simplifying and expediting the lending process.
  3. Supporting the Credit Union Mission: Ranqx embodies the credit union ethos of “people helping people,” aligning seamlessly with the mission of these community-focused financial institutions.

This partnership introduces an array of streamlined working capital loans, making SMB lending simpler for credit unions, encompassing overdraft, term loans, and business credit cards. Credit unions reap substantial rewards, including:

  1. Efficiency: A dramatic 80-90% decrease in origination costs.
