Sperlonga was founded in April of 2011 with the goal of developing a data aggregation technology platform that compiles, transforms and delivers non-traditional payment and account data to the traditional credit ecosystem.

Since the non-traditional credit industries are very fragmented and a uniform data format standard does not exist, Sperlonga had to develop a technology that could integrate with various platforms to extract data in various formats and then transform the data into a format that is acceptable to the credit bureau industry.


All payment and account data is stored encrypted at rest and the operating data is stored on a Microsoft Azure platform which is compliant up to SOC level 3.

 

One mission objective that was established during the early days of Sperlonga was to create a technology that could serve as a financial management tool that non-traditional credit providers can utilize to transform the way they manage cash flows and accelerate their growth. Another mission objective Sperlonga had from the outset was to be consumer focused and contribute toward rewarding consumers who pay their non-traditional credit and debt obligations on time with a positive impacts to their credit scores that were not possible prior to offering our service.
