Electronic interfaces with third parties
Odyssey provides electronic interface with banks and third party payment gateways. The system transmits generated files to the bank for collections and payments as well as receives bank statement files for rejections and bank reconciliations.
Online credit checks
To automate credit approval process from within Odyssey, Red Planet Software has developed online access to various credit bureaus. This can be implemented in various ways, from a basic entity check through to an automated approval decision-making process.
Odyssey is a cloud based application offering secure online access to authorized parties 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your Odyssey system can be accessed in the office via your computer or out on the road while visiting clients via your mobile technology such as a tablet or Smartphone.
The ability to provide instant quotes, access loan statistics and gain electronic approvals streamlines business operations, reduces application processing times and offers greater flexibility for intermediaries, agents and clients.
Odyssey allows end borrowers to access the loan online, thus eliminating the time consuming need for signatures and return of paperwork.
This streamlines the process and reduces the time from the borrower receiving the quotation to their acceptance dramatically. Their accepting of the loan online can then trigger the auto approval process, and if successful, the debit for the first repayment. To see how online acceptance works, please click here.
