BBVA Compass Teams With OnDeck To Bolster Bank's Small Business Offerings

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass is teaming with tech-powered lender OnDeck to give Main Street a boost, using the company's innovative technology and business scoring system to offer loans to more small businesses.

The OnDeck Score™ analyzes thousands of data points — from cash flow to public records to social data — to assess the health of a small business. The bank will use the OnDeck Score and exclusive technology to provide qualifying business clients with loans up to $250,000, six- to 24-month payment terms, and funding in as fast as one business day.

The alliance marks OnDeck's most substantial partnership with a major bank, and continues BBVA Compass' unrelenting campaign to lift up small businesses.

"We're singularly focused on providing small-business owners the help they need to move their businesses forward," said Lonnie Hayes, small business segment director for BBVA Compass. "OnDeck's unique ability to quickly and accurately evaluate a business's performance will allow us to help more entrepreneurs secure the financing they need, when they need it."

Since 2007, OnDeck has delivered more than $1 billion in financing to small businesses nationwide. It holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and 93 percent of its customers say they would recommend OnDeck to other business owners.

"BBVA Compass shares our mission to bolster Main Street lending, and our partnership will help it serve even more customers," said James Hobson, chief operating officer of OnDeck. "Our vision has always been to have banks leverage our platform to more efficiently connect their customers to capital."

The agreement is another example of BBVA Compass' efforts to lead the technology-driven transformation of the financial services industry. Its parent company, BBVA, announced in February it was acquiring Simple, a Portland, Ore.-based company that has created a new standard in digital banking, through BBVA Compass.

It also is the latest in a series of BBVA Compass innovations targeting small business owners — a segment that is increasingly demanding faster access to capital for a variety of borrowing needs. Last year, BBVA Compass introduced its Business Mobility Bundle to help micro-businesses manage their finances on the go and launched its Great Ideas for Small Business Facebook Contest, awarding two small business owners $10,000 each to fuel their business growth. In February, the bank launched a new service, the BBVA Compass Payroll Service powered by Execupay, to help its business customers seamlessly manage their payrolls through online banking.
