Pancredit rebrands and launches loan book management
Following its acquisition in March 2014, Pancredit, today announces a corporate rebrand designed to embody the identity of its parent company Equiniti, a leading provider of technology, administration and payment services. To accompany its rebrand to ‘Equiniti Pancredit’, the firm also announces the launch of a new outsourced loan book management service; the first in a range of Equiniti Pancredit service lines, which will be supported by Core Pancredit, the firm’s flagship loan application, administration and collection system and delivered as part of Equiniti’s newly established Intelligent Solutions division.
New Loan Book Management Solution
The outsourced loan book management service for banks and financial institutions extends the hosted model for Core Pancredit to offer a full BPO solution. The new solution will provide a full service, cost-effective offering covering all aspects of loan book management, including applications processing, servicing, collections, end agreement, nominal ledger, cash and banking, as a single, outsourced managed service.
“Our partnership with Equiniti allows us to create new opportunities for our customers to reduce their operating overheads and increase efficiency,” comments Graham Donald, Managing Director at Equiniti Pancredit. “As an experienced technology, administration and payment services provider, Equiniti has the specialist and experienced personnel required to completely manage a lender’s loan portfolio via our system, Core Pancredit, including answering customer enquiries and managing the collection of loan repayments.
“Aligning our brand closely with Equiniti will enable us to take advantage of the opportunities available to extend and expand our market offering and deliver a range of additional new services, which we look forward to bringing to market over the next 12 months.”
Intelligent Solutions division
The loan book management service sits within Equiniti’s newly launched Intelligent Solutions division, of which Equiniti Pancredit is a part. Alongside Equiniti Pancredit, Intelligent Solutions comprises the following Equiniti group companies: Equiniti Hazell Carr, Invigia, Equiniti 360° Clinical and Equiniti Data Services. Together, the individual offerings of each company can be blended to deliver uniquely scalable products, off-the-shelf platforms, experienced people and innovative intellectual property.
