How Ampla uses Codat to deploy capital in under 48 hours
Tech-forward financing for growing brands
Financial services provider Ampla needed easy access to customers’ commerce and accounting data so that it could make smarter credit decisions and offer more tailored services. With Codat’s universal API, Ampla ditched a costly in-house build for turnkey integrations that streamline its underwriting and analytics.
A need for real-time insights without the development strain
To assess and track customers’ financial health, Ampla needed instant, ongoing access to business data through its commerce, retail, and accounting systems. Initially, Ampla tried to build the required integrations in-house, placing undue burden on its development team.
“It starts with the data,” said Jim Cummings, Ampla’s chief operating officer. “The better your data, the smarter your underwriting, the lower your loss rate, and the more extensive and affordable your capital solutions. But getting all that data off the ground is really hard to do.”
Data on demand
To make critical credit decisions, Ampla needed easy access to customers’ commerce and accounting data—including inventory figures, purchasing orders, invoices, and more.
Maintaining integrations in-house was costly and time-consuming for Ampla’s team, and it took extra effort and expertise to ensure high-quality, standardized connections.
Ampla needed ongoing visibility into customers’ business performance so the team could mitigate risk, track key metrics, and identify opportunities for additional financing.
With Codat, a turnkey, universal data source
Ampla leveraged Codat’s token migration feature to transfer hundreds of active connections from their in-house Shopify integration to Codat’s API—without their customers having to reconnect. There, it joined a number of other integrations, delivering standardized data from multiple commerce and accounting systems straight to Ampla’s platform.
“Codat made it easy to consolidate our integrations under their universal API and keep all of our existing Shopify connections. They did all of the hard work in just a couple of weeks, and none of our customers had to reauthenticate.”
