Since 2004, Triumph Business Capital (TBC) has provided invoice factoring to over 7,000 small- to mid-size businesses. Triumph Business Capital built their operations on a commercial software product, but the constraints of this core system began to limit their ability to grow. TBC decided to partner with Credera to establish a platform that would allow TBC to better serve their clients. Through the creation and implementation of a custom platform, TBC can now keep up with their current growth and scale quickly while providing the best customer service possible. With the platform, TBC is now taking advantage of new business opportunities through a broader range of services than competitors, streamlined operations through automation, and scaling easily through a revised data structure.
Achieving the vision to better serve clients.
Since 2004, Triumph Business Capital (TBC) has provided invoice factoring to over 7,000 small- to mid-size businesses. In 2012 TBC became a part of Triumph Bancorp, Inc. The strength of Triumph’s commitment to each client relationship is reflected in product innovation and the strategic partnerships they’ve established.
Aaron Graft, CEO of Triumph Bancorp, Inc., articulated Triumph’s tenacity, pursuit of excellence, and others-focused approach to client service well when he said, “Be relentlessly obsessed with outperforming the market at battle speed. Then, when you’re done, be humble.”

Creating a custom solution that meets customer and employee needs.
Credera took the time to thoroughly understand their current processes and overall business objectives during a discovery phase. This research revealed opportunities to improve customer experience and alleviate significant work for front-line employees.
After analyzing a wide range of options, Credera and TBC came to the conclusion that a custom platform was needed to meet all of Triumph’s business objectives as they scale and grow. The platform consists of a custom developed front-end application backed by a rich data infrastructure. For the data lake, Credera leveraged the AWS Lake Formation suite of tools (Glue, S3, Athena, IAM) and modern data architecture best practices to create the platform. The resulting data lake updates with current transactional data in near real-time. The AWS EKS hosted front-end application is specifically tailored to TBC’s workflows, surfacing insights derived from the data lake using Kubeflow managed machine learning pipelines.
The new platform was developed using Credera’s agile-based product development approach. Prior to releasing the solution, an iterative build and test process took place. Once the platform was released, Credera analyzed and monitored system performance and throughput, immediately addressing any issues.
