Global risk management technology and consulting company provides insights on automated credit underwriting processes and solutions.

GDS Link, a global provider of customer-centric risk management and process automation solutions announced today that it had conducted a Credit Origination Workshop at the Best Western Premier Hotel in Accra, Ghana through its entity GDS Link West Africa.

According to Roberto Giannantoni, Managing Partner of GDS Direct, who led the workshop, the purpose was to provide local financial institutions with insightful information on automated application processing. According to Giannantoni, “In today’s competitive lending environment credit applications must be processed quickly and cost effectively. If the application processing turnaround time is too slow financial institutions risk losing valuable customers to other organizations who are looking for the same customers.” Lenders need the ability to segment new customers and apply acquisition strategies that are consistent with the objectives of the business,” continued Giannantoni.

The workshop was attended by financial institutions including Bank of Ghana, Ghana Home Loans, Fidelity Bank, Chrisline Financial Services, Opportunity International, International Commercial Bank, Midland Savings & Loans, Consumer Finance Company, Access Bank Ghana, IFS Financial Services, Tigo Ghana, Oak Financial Services and Airtel Money.

GDS Link West Africa is a joint venture between GDS Link and CIS Ghana that was formed in June 2013. The joint venture serves a large spectrum of prospective clients in both the banking and non-banking sectors addressing their credit risk management requirements.
