In 2018, Prodigal’s founders set out with one mission: to ease the pain and turmoil in consumer finance caused by poor communication. We call it consumer finance intelligence. Our cloud-based AI analyzes every agent/customer conversation for insights, then turns analysis into action with real-time agent assistance, automated notes, and quality assurance.
Nearly one in five U.S. borrowers has engaged with Prodigal over 300 million conversations, and it’s only the beginning.
We won’t stop until every player in the loan lifecycle experiences the relief of better communication, context, and clarity. That’s our promise, and it’s the heart and soul of Prodigal.

Prodigal’s 5 core values.
Bias for action.
We’re unafraid to make decisions that will drive us forward.
We care personally about each other and challenge each other directly to achieve long-term success.
We embrace problems with intelligence. When considering ideas, we ask, “How might it work?” rather than, “Why will it fail?”
We back ourselves, our arguments, and our points of view with relevant data and details.
We do whatever it takes to deliver our best and constantly strive to pursue excellence each and every day.
