Fintech app fills gap in lenders client knowledge

"Ledgerflow offers lenders up-to-date and reliable data on which to base critical decisions."
Adrian Pearson

A Fintech firm which helps accountants analyse their clients’ data is launching a new service to enable banks and financing firms make better lending decisions. 

The cloud-based service uses an API (app programming interface) to extract financial data in minutes and present it to the lender in an easy to understand standardised format.  

Ledgerflow, the brainchild of professional accountant Adrian Pearson and his team at Ledgerscope, extracts prospective loanee’s financial data, with their express permission, to gain further insights into the financial health of a business.  

Ledgerflow can be used by smaller lending firms or multinational banks that offer services such as factoring, asset finance and business loans. 

The API, which launches in the UK and Ireland in September, will be available as a Software as a Service. 

A white label option, which can be re-branded, allows lenders to evaluate up-to-date business performance directly from SME’s accounting software without additional  development. 

Ledgerscope established Movemybooks, the preferred accounting data conversion service  for Sage, QuickBooks and Xero in the UK and North America over the last 10 years.

The team at Ledgerscope has drawn on a decade of developing open accounting software to create Ledgerflow, its MD Adrian Pearson says: ‘The relationship between many financial firms and their clients continues to become more distant. High street business banking has more or less disappeared and so has the tradition of lenders getting to really know their clients and concerns. 

‘Yet, the need to understand a business’s position and needs is as important as ever for lenders. Ledgerflow offers lenders up-to-date and reliable data on which to base critical decisions.’  

Marketing director Rob Furness says: ‘The open finance tool is emerging as a way to bridge the knowledge gap. We see huge possibilities for financial professionals to gain valuable insights to support their clients more effectively and grow their own services.’
