Vancouver, BC. November 30, 2021 – Marble Financial Inc. (CSE: MRBL; OTC: MRBLF; FSE:2V0) (“Marble” or the “Company”), an AI-driven financial technology company, is pleased to announce that the Company has entered a licensing agreement with WiiBid Solutions Corp. (“WiiBid”), a leading fintech company that offers an online borrower-centric lending marketplace.
With 20 years of experience in providing technology solutions to major corporations and financial institutions, WiiBid has established Canada’s first digital marketplace for borrowers to get direct access to various financing deals. WiiBid aims to empower its users by providing them with tools that can help them reach their financial goals, leading to WiiBid licensing the advanced credit valuation software, Marble Connect.
The Marble Connect API can perform accurate assessments on the users’ financial information, resulting in improved credit ratings for them. In addition, users who fail to meet certain credit thresholds will be provided with prescriptive recommendations on how to increase their credit scores. As a result, the integration of the Marble Connect platform within WiiBid’s online marketplace will enable sub-prime borrowers to be eligible for obtaining more competitive financial solutions from lenders.
The agreement represents the second marketplace website in the alternative lending space to integrate the Marble Connect API. Under the licensing agreement, Marble will be able to leverage WiiBid’s consumer data and offer Marble solutions to its users based on their financial information.
“Our team at WiiBid is committed to our customers by not only providing them with the best rates but also with access to meaningful education, tools and resources necessary to ensure their financial success, which is why we have partnered with Marble, a leading AI-powered platform in consumer credit management,” said Amin Eskooch, CEO of WiiBid. “Through our partnership with Marble, WiiBid will be able to help its clients receive valuable insights about the state of their credit and its impact on their ability to obtain mortgage financing, as well as provide them with practical and actionable recommendations on how to improve their rate and financial position. We are excited to share this announcement and look forward to enhancing our customer’s experience through this partnership.”
“We are pleased to announce the licensing agreement with WiiBid as it represents the integration of our second online marketplace within the alternative lending space,” said Doug Tanner, Marble’s VP of Business and Corporate Development. “The Marble Connect software implements artificial intelligence to provide accurate credit score valuations for users who need them the most such as sub-prime customers. That said, this agreement highlights the strength of our proprietary technology in delivering personalized financial solutions that can help users improve their financial wellness.”
