Further details on the partnership

Following the upSWOT and Cion partnership, institutions will be able to offer their SMB customers some of the following embedded finance and embedded business management tools:
  • A credit boost tool that enables businesses to share data with credit bureaus to have their credit score boosted as appropriate, as sharing proprietary data does not cause a decreased credit score.

  • An insight generator tool that cross-analyses a multitude of app data streams in order to generate specific actions that the business can take for improving its operations and profitability, with the businesses also getting access to associated real-time analytics. 

  • A cashflow forecast tool to enable businesses to see their expected cash inflows, and a sensitivity analysis tool to help them understand what the future impact of key possible decisions would be.

  • A bank reconciliation tool that automatically posts and categorises all the businesses’ transactions from their bank feed to their accounting app, enabling for rules to be set up to have accuracy improved.

  • A cash management tool that gives businesses access to all their banking accounts, including those in different banks, and in-depth examinations into transactions. Furthermore, the tool aggregates all business invoices, bills, and subscriptions in one place, and offers notifications for upcoming due amounts. 

  • A business valuation tool that offers businesses a valuation and estimate of market value, alongside the numbers and metrics that affect it, with the results being enabled to be compared with those of public companies.

  • A funding access tool that allows businesses to access credit products that are tailored to their needs.

  • An ecommerce management tool that connects to POS and ecommerce apps ensuring that each step of the ecommerce transaction is tracked and performed on schedules, in addition to providing sales analytics and insights.

As Cion has established relationships with institutions that understand the value of technology in better serving the financial needs of SMB customers and are already using Cion’s financial technology platform, they are in a position where they can take advantage of the embedded finance and embedded management components that upSWOT will integrate into Cion’s platform. 

Through this partnership, the two companies are looking to bring a holistic fintech solution, with upSWOT officials stating in their press release that fintech is believed to have the power to reshape SMBs’ success, continuing to say that the partnership with Cion will enable institutions to offer to their SMB customers access to financial technologies tools to bolster their business, as well as the economies around them.
