TIS is a bank agnostic cloud-based software platform that enables intermediaries to efficiently and cost effectively open and manage legislatively required third party bank accounts. It is the only such bank agnostic platform in South Africa, and operates in direct competition to similar platforms provided by the large banking institutions. Deposits/funds channelled via TIS assists banks in growing their liability funds and in turn their interest income. Since its launch in 2014, TIS has assisted more than 350 intermediaries (attorneys, estate agents, estate practitioners etc.) to open in excess of 25 000 bank accounts to the approximate value of R13bn. TIS is currently fully integrated into one of our banking partners, probably a first for any fintech in Africa.
Fennec Assist is a co-browsing solution with a twist. Co-browsing in its basic form allows a customer support agent to assist users
on any online platform without the need to take over the user’s PC, removing the risk related to screen take-overs. The support
agent is able to see the user’s browser tab (only the tab where the online product is active) and guide them by using their mouse
pointer. The agent is able to see what the user is typing, or where they have made selections and can therefore quickly get to a
point where they can resolve the query presented. Co-browsing works just as well where a training specialist needs to train a user,
but the user is not able to attend training classes. Using co-browsing the training specialist can train the user online on his/her own
version of the system, thus reducing the cost of travelling to the client.
Where Fennec Assist though goes one step further, is on the data security side. Assist has been developed in such a way that
sensitive information is encrypted at the user and only decrypted once it hits the support agent, meaning that Fennec itself has no
access to data. This makes it ideal for companies that deal with very sensitive data such as banks, insurance companies,
stockbroking and forex platform providers, accounting and legal solutions and many more.
Fennec Flow is a cloud based estate administration system that assists executors and administrators of estates to manage their
estate matters through the entire life cycle. The types of estates that can be managed on Flow are deceased, curatorship and
insolvencies. We also leverage existing infrastructure to enable financial advisors and wealth planners to assist them in performing
enhanced estate planning for their clients via our Living L&D module. Flow is thus effectively a four-in-one system that allows users
to easily navigate between each module.
