Digital lending leader WebBank today announced a strategic partnership with ScaleFactor, the automated accounting and finance platform for small business. The partnership combines WebBank’s best-in-class compliance, capital and oversight management capabilities with ScaleFactor’s robust technology platform, expanding the latter’s ability to deliver a wider range of financial insights and solutions to small business owners. The announcement follows ScaleFactor’s recent news that it closed a $60M Series C funding round to further expand its product offerings and ramp its national presence.
According to a recent survey of small business owners, 76% of SMBs who do not have a full-time or fractional CFO have no plans to hire one, while 58% employ a technology solution to manage their accounting and/or back office. As business owners increasingly rely on technology to inform decision making the end-to-end solutions that rapidly deliver data, insights, and financial products to business needs will become ever more valuable.
“At WebBank, we partner with strategic platforms that are developing innovative technologies to make financial services more accessible to the general public,” said Jason Lloyd, EVP of Strategy and Business Development at WebBank. “ScaleFactor has proven itself one of the most visionary platforms in the market. Their relentless focus on empowering small business owners with financial insight and strategic money management options makes them an ideal partner. We are excited to work with ScaleFactor to bring the power of fintech to Main Street, ultimately improving the ability of small business owners to manage their companies more successfully every day.”
“When we set out to reinvent the way small business owners manage their finances, our goal was to make the entire process seamlessly integrated, more insightful, and ultimately more strategic,” said ScaleFactor CEO Kurt Rathmann. “Partnering with a digital lending leader like WebBank allows us to unlock the intelligence generated by our platform to provide an expanded set of solutions to our customers to accelerate their business growth.”
WebBank looks forward to accelerating ScaleFactor’s expansion beyond routine back office automation into a more comprehensive set of financial insight solutions for small businesses. ScaleFactor recently announced the release of the ScaleFactor Card, the first product released under the WebBank partnership.
