Highlights: 


- Comprehensive research was conducted by Goldman Sachs to understand consumer
preferences around unsecured lending and borrowing priorities. Marcus then used these
insights to design differentiated consumer lending products on the Finacle solution.
- Marcus is now able to deliver extensive self-service capabilities on digital channels
to design truly personalized products. The system will give end-consumers the
flexibility to choose lending terms such as repayment amount and tenor.
- Marcus has designed and built modern technology operations by ensuring
straight-through-processing across digital channels to the Finacle solution.
Leveraging Marcus' technical architecture, the Finacle solution optimised using the
RESTful APIs and process orchestration capabilities.
- The entire program was completed in just eight months, leveraging the agile
implementation framework and the pre-configured US-compliant Finacle Core Banking
Solution. The solution provided out-of-the-box compliance for federal and state
regulations, thus removing the potentially high cost and lengthy timeline of building
a fully-functional, compliant technology platform in-house.
- The Finacle solution provides a 24/7, real-time, scalable platform which has helped to
enable Marcus to create products, open accounts and manage the entire loan-servicing
lifecycle, including payments, whilst ensuring a superior customer experience.
- Finacle's open architecture, integration capabilities and scalability seamlessly
aligned and became part of Goldman Sachs' wider ecosystem of enterprise applications.
