PayByCar is a payment system that streamlines purchases made in and from cars. Instead of going through the often-clunky process of handing a debit or credit card back and forth between driver and cashier.

In-vehicle purchases exceed $200bn yearly. From toll roads to car washes, drive-through coffee stands to fast food restaurants, paying on the go accounts for a significant portion of daily purchases. If you can imagine paying at the pump with an E-Z Pass, then you’re on the right track to understanding PayByCar.

PayByCar allows people to forego the usual card- or phone-based transaction. PayByCar transponders reduce in-vehicle transaction times by eliminating the need of a middleman.

Credit unions who wish to partner with PayByCar can offer their members a simple, easy payment system for in-vehicle transactions. In-vehicle payment systems are a growing technology with increasing demand. Giving members an in-vehicle payment option can reduce their transactional friction and increase their appreciation for their credit union’s services.

Reggora is an appraisal management platform. They speed through the property appraisal process in a fraction of the time that it usually takes.

One of the keys to Reggora’s platform is they automate a good deal of the appraisal process. Usually, a lender or loan officer will try to find an appraiser who specializes in the type of property being appraised. Then, it takes more time for the appraiser to meet the lender on their schedule.

Reggora addresses the long wait times for appraisals by using an Uber-like algorithm to match lenders and qualified appraisers. Reggora uses a database of thousands of appraisers. Their algorithm finds the most qualified appraiser nearby who fits with the lender’s schedule.

Overall, Reggora is able to accomplish in only a few days what usually takes a couple weeks to finish. Credit unions can use Reggora to help them streamline their mortgage experience.
