Modo_FinDEVr2015_logoModo is connecting commerce to the new digital economy. Modo’s platform operates like a shipping container for intermodal payments. Value can be loaded into the container from a variety of systems, delivered across one or more channels, and arrive at a wide variety of destinations. Modo connects different types of value as well, including cards and accounts, and currencies such as digital, loyalty, offers, gifts, and cryptocurrencies. Modo also connects directly to mobile phones, with an innovative Connected Beacon that makes beacons two-way instead of one-way interactions.

Mobile payments are dead … long live digital payments
Mobile payments are the solution for a problem that doesn’t exist. Modo’s CEO will describe his voyage of discovery from mobile to digital and demonstrate why connecting containers is the next big wave in payments.

Key takeaways:

Launched in 2007, OnDeck uses data aggregation and electronic payment technology to evaluate the financial health of small and medium sized businesses to efficiently deliver capital to a market underserved by banks. Its proprietary technology – the OnDeck Score – enables small businesses to obtain affordable loans with a fraction of the time and effort that it takes through traditional channels. OnDeck’s credit models look deeper into the health of businesses, focusing on overall business performance, rather than the owner’s personal credit history.

As a leading direct lender of small business loans, OnDeck has deployed more than $1 billion in capital nationwide.
Keynote: OnDeck Lending API’s – Frictionless, Extensible, Powerful
The OnDeck Score evaluates thousands of data points – from cash flow to public records to social data – to more accurately and efficiently assess business health and deliver capital in as fast as 24 hours.
Pamela Rice, OnDeck’s SVP of Technology, is discussing how the OnDeck platform provides a critically needed mechanism for financial institutions and other business service providers to efficiently reach the Main Street small business market.
The company has several APIs, which provide powerful, fully integrated lending capabilities, to third party partners, thus allowing for instant pre-qualifications, pre-approvals and loan applications. Through a coding and product demo, Pamela will demonstrate how both developers and non-developers can interact with OnDeck’s APIs in a UI sandbox and how to utilize our Salesforce app for frictionless plug-and-play integration.
Why it’s great for developers
  • OnDeck’s technology makes the lending process simple, fast & efficient
  • APIs enable 3rd parties to provide more small businesses with the capital they need when they need it
  • OnDeck’s technology has enabled the lender to deploy more than $1 billion in capital to small businesses across the U.S.
