Greensky Credit Is Changing Financing For Home Improvement Projects

What results when you combine the best of finance ideas and new technologies? The answer is a financial technology company such as GreenSky Credit. It is not your ordinary run-of-the-mill financing company. It uses the power of technology to make financing more widely available and easier than ever before.

David Zalik built GreenSky Credit from the bottom up over the course of many years. He is a true entrepreneur who had encountered many ups and downs in his business career. The still relatively young entrepreneur lost a lot of money in real estate, but that did not deter him from trying a new venture in the world of financing.

His idea to use technology and finance together ultimately culminated in what is now a billion-dollar company called GreenSky Credit. The company has a simple mission. It is to leverage the power of technology to make financing home improvement projects faster and easier than before.

GreenSky Credit improves upon traditional financing methods for projects by allowing financing applications to be completed on the go. This means people can complete an application for a home improvement directly on the smartphone. There is no need to complete page after page of paperwork. One can easily complete everything needed for a financing loan on his or her smartphone thanks to Greensky’s online and mobile-friendly application.

GreenSky also saves people a tremendous amount of time when applying for loans. The typical loan process can be very lengthy. GreenSky Credit’s application can be completed in as little as 90 seconds. The approval or rejection of your loan application is just as fast. You often get a response right away on whether you were approved for a loan or not. There are a few rare instances where some more information must be collected. This will not apply to the vast majority of applicants, however.

David Zalik has brilliantly blended together a time-tested financial product with the power of technology in his financial technology company called GreenSky. Homeowners benefit from the easy and quick approval process. Contractors also benefit because they can now offer loans to their clients right on the spot. They can also act as a salesman to help improve the experience of their customers and their own bottom line as well.

Shopping Made Easy with Image Recognition Technology- Snap, Search, Purchase

Have you ever seen someone wearing an item that you just fell in love with, but had no idea where to go to find the item? A new technology is entering the mainstream on that will make it easy to find that shoe, dress, vase or even lipstick shade.

Nieman Marcus, and others are experimenting with the technology that could help them boost sales, while helping consumers shop for the products on their wish list. The technology has been in the works for years but previous versions didn’t live up to expectations.

Slyce is an image-processing technology that was developed by artificial-intelligence startup Sentient, that enables consumers to snap a photo of the item they’d like purchase, information then comes back that matches the product along with information on where the item can be purchased. For instance, let’s say you see someone with a unique purse, but you don’t know the person and are hesitant to ask where they got it. All you’d have to do is snap a photo of the item and information will pop up showing print catalogs, magazine ads and online stores where the product or similar products can be found.

Slyce’s visual searches can utilize 1, 2 and 3-D images which may include real world scanned actual product images as well as product tags, print materials, bar codes, QR codes and even coupons. When using product image, the consumer will get product matches as well as similar products. Print materials and product tags will return product matches and where the items can be purchased online while barcodes, QR codes and coupons will connect the buyer directly to the product and product information.

With the ever evolving use of computers, cell phones and other technologies developed to make consumers live easier and enhance the purchasing experience, new visual search technology is the next generation of purchasing in the evolving retail environment. With more and more retailers adopting this new technology, soon all buyers will have to do is snap, search and purchase.

Facts About Skout You Should Know

These days, the number of social networks that a traveler can access so as to connect with other travelers on the road are many. However, one mobile application has used its direct network to create a platform for people who want to interact. Originally created as a travel app for those who want to expand their travel circle, Skout has in the recent months turned itself into a dating one. Since it introduced the travel feature, more than ten million members have since joined. Many have been intrigued by the virtual journeys feature that allows a user to meet another user from a different location.

A big number of the virtual travelers and especially the young ones end up taking real journeys to meet those that they met on the platform. When Skout introduced the travel feature, it intended users to use it in two different ways; to enable users meet and get to know different people from different cities and countries and to enable users know people who can help them help them when they visit a new destination. So far so good, the company has had success with both missions, and it has proved to be a very popular app for young people who want to meet and make new friends from different cities.

Skout has also purchased Fuse, an app for people on the go. Skout’s collaboration with Fuse is meant to give users simpler tools to make social networks that function from the addresses on their tablets or smartphones. Fuse allows users to set up a ‘fuse’ so that all messages posted disappear automatically in less than ten minutes. Users in Fuse are identified by initials from their cell numbers. The app also has social dynamics that are very interesting. To join a group, for instance, one can ask members for permission but once a member, there is defriending. However, users who chose to opt out can easily do so.

Skout has also improved its privacy, and is not accepting bathroom selfie nudes. Popularly known as the official flirting app, it has banned the oversharing of people photos in front of the mirror or even stripped down in a tub full of bubbles. According to Skout’s management, the photos add no credibility to the user’s image or reputation and its precisely the reason they were banned. Skout also wants people to associate it with positive characteristics and features and not just flirting.

The best thing with Skout is the fact that it segregates teens and adults. Each group is placed in its appropriate peer group to avoid instances where they mix. Once in the peer group, users can feel free to comment on each other’s posts, comment, chat and add pictures. When users from a nearby geographical location come online and check them, they receive notifications and to check out who they are, they buy points. The app has been rated as one of the safest apps to use by teenagers because of its strict moderation.
