At a Glance

With a reliance on C# and a small team of in-house developers, Lendr needed a platform that could accelerate development across the board, including front-end, back-end, employee, and customer experiences.

With OutSystems, they built five apps for staff, clients, and brokers in under a year, streamlining the way it delivers its working capital and factoring solutions.

Understanding the Challenge

Overcoming bottlenecks in a small dev team. With a focus on resourcefulness and convenience, Chicago-based Lendr provides fast working capital and factoring funding for small businesses across the US. But with just four developers and one architect serving the whole organization, developer resources quickly became a significant bottleneck.

Why
With a reliance on C# and a small team of in-house developers, Lendr needed a platform that could accelerate development across the board, including front-end, back-end, employee, and customer experiences.
What
Faster Development Pays Off During the COVID Crisis. Now, just one year after starting with OutSystems, 70 percent of Lendr’s development is completed on OutSystems—a dramatic shift from its previous 100 percent C# reliance.
