NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- What do eProdigy, Starbucks, MasterCard, SunTrust Bank, and PayPal have in common? All of these companies have been chosen as finalists in the Innovation Project 2016 Awards competition taking place this March on the Harvard University campus. Last year's winners included Bank of America Merrill Lynch, American Express, Apple Pay, and Sam's Club. eProdigy has been selected as a finalist in the "Most Innovative Company" category.
"eProdigy is proud to be chosen as a finalist in this prestigious competition," noted eProdigy CEO David Rubin. "As a leading fintech innovator, we are constantly providing new services to the alternative finance industry through our proprietary online platforms."
eProdigy's QuickBooks App and QuickBooks ProAdvisor App
Among the new services introduced by eProdigy within the past year is its QuickBooks App. The App allows key metrics and financial ratios to be pulled directly from a business's QuickBooks records and harnesses that data for automated underwriting. Notes eProdigy's Rubin, "America's small businesses run on QuickBooks. Our QuickBooks App can harness a firm's QuickBooks records and third party data to provide the business owner with a funding decision, often in as little as 5 minutes." eProdigy's original QuickBooks App was inaugurated in April 2015. The new ProAdvisor version is updated with features to enable a ProAdvisor to obtain a funding decision on their client's behalf. QuickBooks ProAdvisors using the eProdigy App earn the industry's leading referral fee when their clients fund with eProdigy.
Could this translate into success for QuickBooks users? Big time. eProdigy's Executive VP Brian Stulman explains, "A few weeks ago we were connected to a business that required over $200K immediately to finance an incredible new opportunity to sell to a Fortune 500 firm. No traditional lender would provide financing in such a short time frame. eProdigy transformed the small business owner's dream into reality by providing same day funding. Although we were introduced to this business via a referral, going forward we will see more of these business owners and their ProAdvisors connecting to eProdigy via the QuickBooks App."
