Profile Software has faced its fair share of risks and hurdles while expanding business operations. From acquiring funding to finding clients and building up a reputation, the company braved tough times through the sheer power of its innovative platform, which offers one-of-a-kind flexibility and functionality. In a constantly evolving market, the company realised early on that a one fits all kind of approach to providing solutions won’t be feasible and moreover, won’t help its clients. The company was driven to investigate, scan and understand the market changes, future trends as well as clients’ needs so as to evaluate and incorporate the respective functionality into its products. This was apparent when Profile was the first to introduce the P2P Lending software to meet the evolving market needs in 2013, uniquely combining banking, investment and risk management capabilities.

Its solutions offer agility, advanced technology and rich functionality to financial institutions. Innovation is inherent in Profile Software’s platforms, ranging from its robo-advisory solution that offers market leading features, to the P2P lending and Risk Management that offer cloud-enabled deployment.
Acumennet, the Treasury Management platform consists of a unique STP mechanism, allowing it to be used for automation of key processes and to optimise operations. Consolidation is one of the most growing methods of implementing a business model and it is more so in the banking industry.
