Companies around the world are changing the ways they do business. Digital technology has enabled companies to improve customer experience, increase internal efficiencies, and create demand for new products and services. One of the companies that emerged from this digital transformation is FinLocker, a personal financial assistance tool that enables users to financially prepare to apply for loans and other financial transactions.
FinLocker was founded in 2014 with a goal to create and add value to relationships between lenders and consumers. FinLocker partners with lenders that invite potential customers to the FinLocker service. Consumers can then access a variety of tools to help them achieve homeownership and other financial goals. Because FinLocker needs access to sensitive personal and financial data in order to conduct business, the company prioritizes privacy and data security in its operations.
