"At Amount, we understand the urgent need for financial institutions to adapt and diversify their strategies amidst challenging market dynamics,” said Adam Hughes, CEO of Amount. "After seeing first-hand the profitability chokepoints from which even the best banks suffer, we designed our platform to create a performance advantage to financial institutions in the highly competitive markets where they operate.”
With an implementation timeline as short as 30 days, the platform gives banks a speed to market advantage built on three key pillars:
