NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Argyle, a leading employment data platform that provides companies access to user-permissioned employment records in real time, today announced it has joined Visa Fintech Partner Connect, a program designed to help Visa’s issuing clients quickly connect with a vetted and curated set of technology partners.
Argyle’s Income and Employment Data Platform allows businesses to streamline their underwriting, reduce fraud, automate manual processes such as pay stub uploads and employer calls, and make funding decisions instantly. It removes the barriers between a worker, the source(s) of their income, and the businesses from which they buy services and products. Argyle helps increase capture rates while improving the customer experience, underwriting more customers – including gig economy workers, federal employees, and other types of independent and self-employed workers – with a comprehensive employment record ecosystem.
“Our mission is to democratize access to employment records by putting control of employment data back into the hands of workers. For businesses, that means having access to valuable user-permissioned data in real time,” said Billy Marsden, COO and founder at Argyle. “Now certified as a Visa Ready partner, Argyle is available to Visa's customers as a trusted, verified solution. Argyle automates the process of income and employment verification to help businesses make more informed underwriting and funding decisions to fuel further innovation in the market.”
“In today’s climate, building a competitive financial product requires more technology than ever before. Consumers want seamless interactions across mobile and web, and they want access to a greater suite of digital banking capabilities,” said Terry Angelos, senior vice president and global head of fintech at Visa. “With Argyle participating in the Fintech Partner Connect program, our clients will have access to a powerful set of tools for building new digital-first experiences.”
Argyle is building the leading user-consent-based platform for employment data, helping people avoid situations where their personal information is sold or used without their consent or knowledge. With Argyle, any business can process income and work verifications, gain real-time transparency into earnings, as well as view and update worker profile details. By removing the barriers between a worker, the companies they make money from, and the business they buy services and products from, Argyle has reimagined how employment data can be leveraged to benefit both institutions and individuals.
