Consumers Say the Kasasa LoanTM is Easy to Understand, While Industry Studies Indicate Other Loans are Not

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 29 novembre 2018

Kasasa® revealed in a survey that the majority of consumers feel the Kasasa LoanTM is easy to understand. In fact, more than 83 percent of those surveyed said the loan was extremely or very easy to understand, despite never having experienced a product similar to the Kasasa Loan. The 2016 survey gathered results from a panel of 1,050 consumers, who responded to a series of questions about their loan preferences and habits.In contrast to Kasasa’s findings, many consumers readily misunderstand lending and their finances. A recent survey from Instamotor found that nearly 60 percent of consumers did not understand the relationship between the terms of a loan and the interest rate.Specifically related to auto financing, a recent survey by Credit Karma found that nearly half (45%) of U.S. car owners could not recall the annual percentage rate on their loan, which is the true cost of borrowing as it reflects interest and fees. One in four said they did not know their APR because they found it too stressful or confusing. Additionally, one in ten car owners could not recall the specific dollar amount of their monthly car payment and one in five did not know how many months remained on their auto loan.“Financial institutions have an opportunity to make lending people-friendly by offering a loan option that is transparent and easily understood – something that is clearly missing but greatly needed,” said Gabe Krajicek, CEO of Kasasa. “Too many megabanks, alternative lenders and FinTechs push expedited loan approvals, rushing consumers through a loan application and decisioning process they don’t even understand. And once they have the loan, they don’t understand the terms or the impact of paying it off quicker. This is not the best approach nor is it in that individual’s best interest.” The Kasasa Loan is the most transparent loan on the market today and gives consumers the ability to participate in take-backs. Like traditional loans, take-back loans allow borrowers to pay ahead on their loans to reduce their debt, but unlike other loans, borrowers can choose to take the extra payments back if life happens and they need that money back. The Kasasa Loan eliminates the fear of parting with ‘extra money’ and reinforces positive financial decisions like paying off debt early.Not only does the Kasasa Loan provide a competitive advantage for financial institutions, but it empowers the consumer to better understand their financial decisions and reduce debt. In fact, Kasasa Loans are preferred by nine out of 10 consumers over comparably priced loans, and in extensive testing, 98 percent of consumers said they would refinance existing debt at the same rate in order to get a Kasasa Loan with the take-back functionality.Krajicek added, “The bottom line is that financial institutions can provide a loan that is objectively better for the consumer. The Kasasa Loan is easier to understand and more transparent than any other loan on the market, and the take-back feature is a game changer for the borrower. With such high consumer preference for the Kasasa Loan, the only way competitive financial institutions can possibly win is to drop their rates or spend more money marketing their centuries old, commoditized loan. Good luck with that.”

The Banking Industry in South Africa 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 7 settembre 2018

The South African banking sector which has total assets of R5.14-trillion, remains highly concentrated with the five largest banks holding 91% of total assets as of 31 December 2017.While the country’s big banks dominate, the sector is also diversified with 36 South African banking institutions registered with the Reserve Bank and 30 foreign banks with approved representative offices in South Africa. There are over 6,000 credit providers registered with the National Credit Regulator.The banking landscape is changing rapidly as banks face increasing competition from technology-based financial services – from newly established banks to retailers offering mobile transactional banking accounts.Competition coming from newly-licensed commercial banks and growing credit granting from other credit providers is likely to encourage the big four banks to place increasing emphasis on growing customer numbers with innovative product offerings, especially to attract lower-income earners.Competition from newly established Discovery Bank, Bank Zero and TymeDigital, which aim to disrupt the sector, may force big banks to intensify efforts to modernise technology platforms to satisfy customers’ demand.

Greater China Set to Dominate Global Industrial IoT Market, Says New GSMA Report

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 giugno 2018

The GSMA today issued a new report, ‘The Industrial IoT in Greater China’, highlighting how the region is poised to lead the global Industrial IoT (IIoT) market. The in-depth report draws on interviews with mobile operators including Asia Pacific Telecom Group, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Far EasTone and Taiwan Mobile who outline how the combination of fast internet speeds, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and the IoT is transforming the region’s industrial sector. GSMA Intelligence estimates that there will be 13.8 billion IIoT connections globally by 2025. Greater China accounts for approximately 4.1 billion of these connections or a third of the global market.“These new technologies will fundamentally alter the way we live and work, intelligently connecting virtually every device, making our cities smarter and our lives easier and more productive,” commented Alex Sinclair, Chief Technology Officer, GSMA. “China is betting big on the IIoT to increase productivity and drive efficiencies by streamlining and automating manufacturing processes via internet connectivity. Backed by positive government support, China is set to become the world’s leader.” The IIoT, will increase productivity by combining AI, cloud computing and advanced analytics to automate manufacturing processes via internet connectivity. It will enable factories to monitor and interpret data from production lines and complex machinery in real time to anticipate faults, manage infrastructure and mitigate risk. The captured data will drive efficiencies, optimise productivity and decrease costs in many important economic sectors beyond manufacturing, such as energy and telecoms. China is also making advances in the area of AI which, with machine learning, will help factories and businesses manage complex processes and drive innovation.

Invaluable Secures U.S. Patent Allowing It to Consolidate Online Bidding across the Auction House Industry

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 giugno 2018

Invaluable, the world’s leading online marketplace for fine art, antiques and collectibles, today announced it has secured a U.S. Utility Patent that paves the way for the company to consolidate and streamline online bidding technology across the auction industry.
Invaluable CEO Rob Weisberg said the patent recognizes the unique live auction bidding console technology developed and managed by Invaluable and offers intellectual property protections from any U.S. companies. Invaluable has applied for the same protections internationally; that application is pending.“I consider it a game-changer for our company and for auction houses everywhere, setting Invaluable apart as the go-to platform to consolidate the auction industry,” said Weisberg.
The Invaluable technology aggregates all online live auction marketplaces and funnels bids to a single auction house clerk utilizing one clerking console powered by Invaluable. This integration spares auction houses from having to use multiple clerks to take bids from several online live marketplaces and sort them in real time during a sale and manage them post-sale. It gives auction houses the ability to efficiently scale up their online sales – vital for growth in the challenging and competitive auction industry, said Weisberg.The patent award from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office came after a four-and a half-year application process, said D.J. Charles, the company’s Chief Technology Officer. Sotheby’s and eBay have used Invaluable’s console technology to power their live auction sales for the last three years, said Charles.
Additionally, Invaluable has filed a secondary “continuation-in-part” application to extend the patent on live auction bidding technology to further include timed auctions, said Charles.
