SAN JOSE, Calif., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FICO (NYSE: FICO), a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced that One Place Capital, a division of Bank Midwest, is using the cloud-based FICO® LiquidCredit® service to speed equipment financing decisions for medical, dental and veterinary practices.

One Place Capital is using the FICO LiquidCredit platform with the FICO® Small Business Scoring ServiceSM (SBSSSM) solution, which includes predictive models built specifically to assess small business credit risk. With this solution, One Place Capital can offer faster decisions to medical, dental and veterinary practitioners through process automation and instant risk assessment.

"It used to take a day and a half to make a financing decision before FICO LiquidCredit — today we can make that decision in 15 minutes," said Scott Stewart, President at One Place Capital. "This agility makes us more efficient, more profitable, and more valuable to our Healthcare equipment vendor partners, clearly helping them reduce their sales cycles."

"The health care business moves at a very fast clip, and demand for credit from medical practices is intense," said Bill Waid, general manager, Americas at FICO. "Using FICO LiquidCredit, One Place Capital can respond to this demand with credit offers closely tailored to each applicant's needs, thereby supporting its customers' growth along with One Place Capital's own growth and competitive strength."

The FICO ® LiquidCredit ® service -- a cloud-based automated origination platform -- is used by hundreds of lenders to accurately decision and price credit offers. Combined with the FICO ® Small Business Scoring Service ®, it gives lenders greater flexibility when lending to small businesses by drawing on multiple data sources and more than 100 combinations of consumer and business risk scoring models.
