Fast and Reliable
Tenant Screening

Savvy uses open banking to make renter applicant screening faster and more reliable for property managers and renters.

Traditional renter screening depends on credit scores, which are an unreliable indicator of future payment performance

We replace this cumbersome and antiquated process with an end-to-end screening solution by connecting to prospective renters' bank accounts to directly verify rent payment history and prevent fraud
