How can the Planky Affordability tool revolutionize your business

Today, with a rapidly changing macroeconomic environment, more and more customers have been struggling to repay their loans.

When it comes to procedures that lenders need to conduct before approving a loan, income verification is probably the most important one.

Thankfully, open banking has simplified income verification and analyses.
