Our story

The pioneer of consumer finance intelligence.

In 2018, Prodigal’s founders set out with one mission: to ease the pain and turmoil in lending and collections 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 400 million conversations and interactions, 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.
