Established in 2015, Funding Societies is a digital finance platform whose mission is to connect investors with small and medium-sized businesses that need a loan of less than $1 million. In the period of 2018-2019, the peer-to-peer (P2P) lending market witnessed the rise of the 4.0 technology revolution along with a number of strong competitors. In order to increase competitiveness and enhance their position in the market, Funding Societies has explored and applied technology solutions to enhance operational efficiency. At that time, the Funding Societies biggest problem was that the operating process on their company's website was not optimized in time, the connection between the departments was still fragmented, and the data storage was still manually done by using soft files. In July 2019, Funding Societies decided to cooperate with GEEK Up, trusted product partner, to improve the inadequacies in their operating system."
