Providing Artis With the Skills and Expertise Needed to Launch its Initial Product

Keeper Solutions has been working with Artis Technologies from a very early stage in its development. While the company officially launched in March of 2020, work started behind the scenes in mid-2019. Artis selected Keeper as a development partner with a view to providing the skills and expertise needed to build its initial product, Artis Connect.

Artis Connect enables financial institutions to offer downstream credit through their existing business customers to generate high-quality consumer loans. The technology was built in response to the ongoing structural shift in how consumers, businesses and lenders interact. The product enhances the value of traditional scoring models by incorporating AI and machine learning-optimized policies and workflows.

Keeper Solutions provided Artis with the skills and capabilities needed to design, build and deploy their complex and scalable lending platform, with an optimum mix of capability, cost and time-to-market. While Artis had their core technical team in place, they needed a development partner that could help them scale their development operations quickly and with the right expertise.

A Bright Future Ahead as Artis’ Software Outsourcing Partner

To date, Keeper has worked on developing the front-end, back-end and integrating the platform with Automated Clearing Houses. ACH (Automated Clearing House) is a network used for electronically moving money between bank accounts across the United States. In addition, Keeper has provided architectural advice and implemented test automation processes across the product.

In late 2019, Artis took the decision to consolidate all its software outsourcing to Keeper. Keeper has been able to scale up and down the team needed at different times and add the necessary capability in a responsive manner. In close partnership with Keeper, Artis launched their MVP in 2020 and has successfully proven its product across the loan origination cycle.

In August 2020, Artis Technologies announced that it had closed its first institutional investor in a seed round, securing $1.5 million from Fintech Ventures Fund and its affiliates. With several more products in the pipeline, Artis is a company on the up and Keeper Solutions is incredibly proud of the role we have played. As Artis’ software outsourcing partner, we are excited about what’s to come.
