With this hiring, Coinscrap Finance is moving steadily towards the achievement of objectives in this year 2021, betting on human capital, having as a priority objective the consolidation in Spain as the benchmark in micro-savings and financial planning for banks and insurers and start the international scaling.
In 2020 we launched our latest product, the COCO categorization engine, aimed at banks and insurers, which allows the platform to access bank data and classify them into 17 categories and 120 subcategories. The engine uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) and ML (Machine Learning) technology, which makes it fully configurable and adaptable, creating databases grouped by different criteria that can be filtered at the customer’s choice. Thanks to this new development, the platform allows to obtain a much more accurate financial health scoring, offering the user automatic recommendations and discovering cross-selling opportunities for banks and insurers.
At Coinscrap Finance we continue to work every day with the commitment to develop new products that make savers’ lives easier.
The Coinscrap Finance family, with offices in Pontevedra, Ourense and Madrid, is already made up of 18 people and the plan for 2021 is to continue adding new profiles to the team to continue developing products and opening new international markets.
