BEIJING, Oct.11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — PINTEC Technology Holdings Limited (“PINTEC” or the “Company”), a leading independent technology platform enabling financial services in China, today announced a partnership with Permobil, a global leader in advanced rehab technology. PINTEC will provide Permobil with a creative, customized and efficient installment payment solution that makes it easier for customers in China to purchase wheelchairs and rehabilitation products.
PINTEC’s scalable and reliable technology infrastructure, based on cloud computing, big data analytics and artificial intelligence, offers exceptional connectivity and adaptability for partners to integrate with their own systems. PINTEC’s customized installment solution is embedded into Permobil’s official WeChat account. Customers can choose the installment option when they make purchase through Permobil’s WeChat mall. With relevant information filled in by customers, PINTEC can complete multi-dimensional risk assessment and decisioning in a few seconds. After approval, customers can buy their desired wheelchairs and rehabilitation products with the option of 3-, 6- or 12-installment payments.
“The installment financing solution from PINTEC helps lower the barrier to buy wheelchairs and rehabilitation products,” said QP Chau, General Manager of Permobil China. “This is a new attempt in consumer financing in China, and will be conducive to the expansion of China’s rehabilitation equipment market.”
Installment financing has been widely adopted in e-commerce, online travel and online education industries in recent years. However, in niche markets with high prices and low purchase frequency, it is still a challenge to deploy installment payments solutions.
