NEW YORK and BANGALORE, November 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Finacle, part of EdgeVerve Systems, a product subsidiary of Infosys (NYSE: INFY), announced that Marcus by Goldman Sachs has implemented the Finacle Core Banking Solution for its consumer lending operations.

Highlights: 

  • Comprehensive research was conducted by Goldman Sachs to understand consumer preferences around unsecured lending and borrowing priorities. Marcus then used these insights to design differentiated consumer lending products on the Finacle solution.
  • Marcus is now able to deliver extensive self-service capabilities on digital channels to design truly personalized products. The system will give end-consumers the flexibility to choose lending terms such as repayment amount and tenor.
  • Marcus has designed and built modern technology operations by ensuring straight-through-processing across digital channels to the Finacle solution. Leveraging Marcus' technical architecture, the Finacle solution optimised using the RESTful APIs and process orchestration capabilities.
  • The entire program was completed in just eight months, leveraging the agile implementation framework and the pre-configured US-compliant Finacle Core Banking Solution. The solution provided out-of-the-box compliance for federal and state regulations, thus removing the potentially high cost and lengthy timeline of building a fully-functional, compliant technology platform in-house.
  • The Finacle solution provides a 24/7, real-time, scalable platform which has helped to enable Marcus to create products, open accounts and manage the entire loan-servicing lifecycle, including payments, whilst ensuring a superior customer experience.
  • Finacle's open architecture, integration capabilities and scalability seamlessly aligned and became part of Goldman Sachs' wider ecosystem of enterprise applications.
