Credit Suisse announced on Thursday it has joined forces with Swiss software provider KLARA to simplify online credit requests for SMEs. Credit Suisse reported that starting now, SMEs that use KLARA may submit online credit requests to its platform.
“SMEs can thus directly submit their credit requests to Credit Suisse. The tedious filling out of forms is a thing of the past. The intuitive KLARA process pulls the relevant accounting data and automatically fills out the form fields. Within a few seconds, the SME is notified by Credit Suisse of how much credit it can receive at which interest rate.”
While sharing more details about the collaboration, Renato Stalder, CEO of KLARA Business AG, stated:
“Through this partnership, the best abilities of Credit Suisse and KLARA come together. The result is an offering that minimizes the effort of the client and offers a seamless client experience.”
Anke Bridge Haux, Head of Digitalization & Products at Credit Suisse (Switzerland) Ltd., also commented:
“SME clients want uncomplicated access to financial services at the time that’s individually right for them and on the platform that suits them. That is why we want to be present where a need arises. We are very much looking forward to the innovative collaboration with KLARA; it is a good example of how, in the future, we want to make our offering available where it is most useful to our clients — integrated into their individual ecosystem.”
Credit Suisse went on to add that in the coming months, further connections will follow for the continuous expansion of the client offering.
