Juniper Payments was originally founded in 2000 by a group of community bank entrepreneurs who seized an opportunity to fill the gap in available internet technology designed specifically for financial institutions. Originally called LendingTools.com, we delivered a variety of affordable, web based solutions to streamline internal banking operations, including lending analysis. This early success led to the creation of our Correspondent Gateway service that successfully manages a broad set of banking transaction, reporting and risk management tools for correspondent to offer to respondent community banks and credit unions. Within a decade, our company became the premiere third party provider of SaaS online correspondent institutions in the U.S. For more information visit juniperpayments.com.
