SpringFour today announced that it delivered almost 3.3 million financial health referrals to Americans in need in 2020. SpringFour increased its support with 37% more resources available and 21% more cities covered, and increased its subscribers by 43%, which included 44% more banking and lending clients including Avant, Elevate, Enova, and two of the top 10 U.S. banks and others, and 25% more nonprofit clients.
Each year, SpringFour surveys the users of its S4pro tool – agents and counselors who use S4pro to provide vetted financial resources to customers in need. The survey helps us get a finger on the impact our referral tool has on our clients’ business, their employees working directly with consumers in need of financial assistance, and customer outcomes. Among other insights, the survey shows that SpringFour has become an integral piece of many companies’ COVID-19 response strategies.
