Ryan Collins – Open Lending

Video Transcription

I’m Ryan Collins, Chief Technology Officer at Open Lending.

OpenLending has been around for about 15 years and we do risk analytics and automated decisioning for financial institutions in the U.S.

We try to keep our staff as lean as possible, and only focused on our product and our product knowledge. Our goal was to take a lot of the IT cost and manpower that it takes to run a business successfully and offload that to a company we know and trust.

We work with banks and credit unions in the U.S. who are regulated by the government. So, we have a lot of private member data that our application uses for decisions, and the data is the credit union or banks data and so it’s really important that the data center that our data is in is controlled and managed correctly.

We’ve never really had our customers ask us to walk them through a data center or to go over our environment on-site, and we’ve had that a couple of times recently and OnRamp’s really shined.

I’ve got nothing but great things to say about those guys. They know their stuff and provide help and assistance and solutions to any issues that we have. So, I feel comfortable with the people that I work with on a day-to-day basis providing our business what we need to succeed.
