Monday 11 June 2018

The new agreement will allow Equiniti Riskfactor to develop a local presence in Germany as part of its global growth strategy
Equiniti Riskfactor is pleased to announce its first international partnership working with efcom, a specialist factoring software provider, which helps lenders to streamline data processing across their factoring business.
Frankfurt-based efcom has been providing factoring software since December 2000 and has a wide client base in over 11 countries.
The deal will see Equiniti Riskfactor leverage the partnership to launch its flagship risk management and analytics software into the growing German factoring market, as part of its continued international strategy.
The software, EQ Riskfactor, has been built specifically for the invoice finance and factoring market and uses unique risk algorithms to highlight deteriorating profiles and unusual client activity. The leading software enables lenders to identify fraudulent activity earlier than any other system by providing an in-depth understanding of the risk across client portfolios and recognising any signs of irregular behaviour.
Aaron Hughes, Managing Director at Equiniti Riskfactor, comments:
“We are very excited to have partnered with efcom: they have a reputation in the market for excellence and their existing software is a perfect complement to our own risk analytics.
“efcom’s understanding of the factoring market and enthusiasm for our risk software form a brilliant foundation from which we can launch the business in Germany and spearhead its use across the German factoring market. We look forward to working with efcom over the coming months and years and meeting new customers along the way.”
Daniel Huszar, Head of Sales at efcom, comments:
“This is a very exciting partnership for efcom and we are proud of this partnership with Equiniti Riskfactor. Their leading software has a fantastic reputation within the industry.
“Working in close collaboration with Equiniti Riskfactor is a fantastic opportunity for efcom as our products complement each other extremely well. Combining EQ Riskfactor’s portfolio-based risk analytics with our in-depth factoring software will provide a compelling and unique proposition for clients.
“By joining forces, we are able to offer a new service to the market which produces better analysis than ever before.”
