Being selected by RateSetter, AU10TIX’s Back Office Solution (BOS) will be used by the UK’s top P2P lender in Q1 2015. During that period, RateSetter recorded £120.9 million in new loans, just over 25% of the total in UK P2P lending for the quarter. Overall, since launching in October 2012, £639 million in loans have been processed on the RateSetter platform.
Commenting about the BOS implementation, John Battersby, Head of Communications of RateSetter, stated, “We looked at various solutions available on the market. But when putting them to test with real life traffic, choosing AU10TIX BOS was easy. The proof was in the pudding… BOS didn’t take too long to flag an actual fraudulent ID image out of the haystack.”
Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX added, “We enjoy working with the RateSetter team, contributing our share to their success. RateSetter wants their customers to be better protected and to feel better served. That’s the whole idea about AU10TIX BOS – it does both.”
