About 1 & Fund® and 1LOOK™

How many times have you been sitting at the kitchen table of a potential customer, trying to close a sale, only to have your customer DECLINED for financing.  It completely sucks the air out of the room.  Now what?

How much time and effort do you spend trying to submit multiple finance applications through multiple log-ins to multiple platforms, not to mention logging into a third - or fourth - system, plus your credit card and ACH processor - all while trying to stay cool and calm in front of a customer.  

How many times have you seen a customer experience decision paralysis when there are too many offers on the screen and the heads start spinning. Isn’t there a better way?

The financing process as it exists today simply doesn’t work for an exceptional customer and sales designer experience.  Enter 1 & Fund®, built BY home improvement experts FOR home improvement experts.

1 & Fund® was founded with the goal of making home improvement financing easier and faster for the sales designer at the kitchen table.  With our deep home improvement experience, we know that companies that finance more deals generate more sales, have higher profits, and better retention.
