To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice

~ Confucius

In my lifetime, I have been called brash, bold, sassy, and mischievous, so I pay attention when a company, and a new one to boot, jumps out of the starting gate, bragging how they are going to transform the way a consumer’s credit worthiness is measured. Whoa, who does this RIBBIT think they are, challenging a status quo system that has been around since the 1860s when merchants shared lists of villagers who failed to pay their debts? But as Confucius says – To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice.

RIBBIT is the steroid offspring of Cash Flow Solutions, a 22-year electronic payments provider, and Transaction Science, a groundbreaking predictive analytics company. Together as one, RIBBIT utilizes patent-pending bank behavior analytics to meet the demands of a rapidly changing world to accelerate financial freedom for all people with better data supporting superior outcomes. 

RIBBIT’s BankINSIGHTS suite provides adaptive bank analytics for instant credit decisioning, account onboarding, and payments from a single API connection. The combined company’s products are designed to simplify financial decisioning without the need for multiple providers, including:  

  • Instant, predictive insights into affordability on 99% of bank accounts
  • Non-credentialed and credentialed bank account onboarding and underwriting 
  • Proprietary, customer-driven user interface to instantly enroll any bank account
  • Account verification and transactional behavior analytics  
  • Tokenized ACH and Same-Day ACH payment processing

In a changing market, RIBBIT’s adaptive learning methodologies more accurately predict financial outcomes in a turbulent economy. The AI-enhanced platform turns bank and payment data into decisioning intelligence for assessing risk and offering affordable financial products. RIBBIT’s proprietary network accesses billions of financial data points to present an authentic, holistic picture of a customer’s ability to afford a payment or a loan. Lenders, fintechs, and banks are leveraging the technology to evaluate applicant’s creditworthiness and ability to pay. 

The unimaginable pandemic has reminded us that we must continue to move forward in our thinking lest we be left behind. It’s a time to explore the silver linings and learn from the lessons: hope rises like a Phoenix from the ashes of shattered dreams ~ S.A.Sachs. 

Welcome RIBBIT, perhaps you are one of the silver linings.

The biggest problem in the world could have been solved when it was small ~ Bynner

Identity theft is running rampant; my husband was recently a victim when someone tried to take out a loan in his name.

It felt offensive on two levels: one with the sleazy thief, another with the clueless lender since my husband died five years ago.

Biden Launches Rocket to Open Banking

A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle – Kahlil Gibran

Open banking just got a giant goose from the President of the United States. In an executive order, President Biden strongly suggested that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) endorses guidelines forcing banks to loosen their grip on consumers’ bank data. Time for banks to “give it up” to the actual account owners so they can download their banking information and share it with other banks and 3rd party service providers. Wow, this is big!
