Also, I’d like to congratulate the Best of Show winners: Alpha Payments Cloud, Avoka, Amigo, Moven, NAMU Systems, Shoeboxed and Stratos! For another perspective on the most innovative and promising fintech solutions, check out Michael Halloran’s blog discussing LendKey and Credit Sesame. On the 1st day of Finovate, CMO David Lee, VP of Product Applications Katy Gibson and VP of Product Marketing John Bird presented Yodlee Sense through an interactive demo of our brand new financial app that delivers personal and predictive recommendations. According to Lee, “Yodlee Sense runs customers’ financial data through its personalization engine. The engine determines customers’ financial income and expense patterns, debt-to-income ratio, and average cash on hand.” For example, Gibson described how “Yodlee Sense creates a financial calendar for you to keep track of income and bills and predict dips before they even happen.” In addition, you can easily transfer funds to your checking account. appCurrently, Yodlee Sense is available to financial institutions that are looking for data-driven financial management tools with rich mobile and online banking functionality for retail and wealth management consumers. The app enhances customer loyalty by delivering a proactive user experience and provides actionable data for targeted recommendations and increased cross-sell.
