Overview of the Debt and Equity Crowdfunding Platform

A debt and equity crowdfunding platform, already live and operational with a full client base on both sides—companies looking to raise funds and wealth managers distributing investments—decided to transition their technology and platform to a new provider, FundFront. This decision was driven by the need for a more customizable and scalable white label crowdfunding platform. The goal was to enhance their branding capabilities and streamline data processing to improve coordination with third-party service providers.

Challenges Faced by the Crowdfunding Platform

Technology Limitations from Current Providers

The existing technology providers offered an out-of-the-box solution with zero customization capabilities. This lack of flexibility became a significant barrier to growth as the company sought to scale its operations. The key limitations included:

  • Branding Constraints: The inability to customize the platform to reflect the company’s brand identity hindered marketing efforts and brand recognition.
  • Data Processing Mismatches: The platform struggled with mismatched data processing methods between their system and third-party service providers, leading to inefficiencies and coordination issues.

Risks Associated with Switching Technology Providers

Switching to a new provider posed several significant risks:

  • Operational Disruption: Transitioning to a new platform risked disrupting ongoing operations, potentially leading to a loss of business continuity.
  • Potential Downtime: Any downtime during the transition could negatively impact both the companies looking to raise funds and the wealth managers distributing investments.
  • Financial Costs: The transition involved financial costs, including the investment in new technology and potential temporary revenue loss during the switch.
