Read our latest cloud case study about Circeo.

Circeo was established in 2014 with the goal of helping banks use technology to resolve complex lending problems. The organization’s signature software tool, TheLoanFactory, is an innovative approach to lending that makes the management of the loan lifecycle easier for both banks and their customers.

With this lending as a service (LaaS) offering, banks are able to approve and fund loans in just a few minutes — not the days, weeks, or months required for traditional loans.
