August 5, 2016 ― Washington, DC ― MPOWER Financing today announced that it is partnering with FUTR Corporation to provide superior loan servicing and support to MPOWER borrowers.
FUTR’s loan service platform provides borrowers with open, consistent communication, including electronic payment reminders and online tracking that helps them stay up-to-date with student loan repayments. With a focus on transparency, FUTR’s loan servicing solution allows borrowers to review their information and status at all times, ultimately creating a deeper control over their finances. FUTR further supports MPOWER’s mission of removing barriers to higher education for high-potential students by helping borrowers establish and build their credit histories.
“FUTR’s commitment to technological innovation, transparency, and exceptional borrower support reflects MPOWER’s core values,” said MPOWER CTO and Co-founder Mike Davis. “Their ability to evolve quickly to meet client needs makes them an ideal loan service provider. We also see the benefit of working with a strong team with an established track record and a focus on precision and innovation.”
MPOWER selected FUTR as an operational partner because of the company’s unparalleled expertise. The FUTR team offers decades of experience and is committed to creating a focused environment of growth and innovation in the services space, most recently demonstrated in its acquisition of key assets from established industry provider ECMC Servicing.
“As a partner, we’re committed to ensuring that MPOWER borrowers receive the high-quality service they expect,” said Lance Teinert, President of FUTR’s Servicing Operations. “We look forward to working with MPOWER as the company continues to redefine the student lending market by helping a previously underserved segment of the population.”
