Loxon at Banking Technology 2017

Nov 30, 2017


On 16th November more than 300 invited guests were at Banking Technology 2017, organised by Portfolio in Budapest. Naturally, Loxon represented itself too.
The talks among many topics covered the challenges tackled by Fintech companies and their role in renewing banking processes, immidiate transfers and current regulations as well. Tamas Erni, the Chairman of Loxon stated that big data is not a future innovation anymore, but an already existing and applicable element of infrastructure.
To use that resource well, efficient big data solutions applied in banking processes necessitate the prompt identification of business objectives and finding the circle of data compatible with these aims.

Nov 22, 2017


We are proud to annnounce that Loxon, the only ranked provider from Central and Eastern Europe, finished 61st overall in Chartis’ RiskTech 100® 2018, and won the 'Customer Satisfaction' category.

RiskTech 100 - Customer Satisfaction Award

According to Tamas Erni, Chairman of Loxon, there are several key factors behind Loxon’s success in the RiskTech100® rankings:

„We are a niche vendor – we only do lending and risk management. This is our core competence. We focus each and every of our resources to become year by year better and better in these. The other key advantage is customer-centricity. We put always very high emphasis on being close to our customers, understanding their needs, and we do our best to serve our customers. That’s why we built up all of our systems and strategies based on customer-centricity and flexibility. We don’t believe in black boxes, but we believe in understanding what our customers require and provide them with best-of-breed solutions to what they require today and what they have to fulfil tomorrow. That’s why we try to be always one step ahead of the market as a niche vendor; because of this we can be more flexible than most of our competitors and we can react faster to the major technology changes and the major risk management changes.”
