Ridgeland, Miss., May 9, 2023 – Vergent LMS, a premier fintech lending platform supporting more than 20,000 customers and services with more than $690 billion in loans, has been selected to receive the MariaDB OpenWorks Wavemaker Award for Software as a Service (Saas) Application of the Year.

This honor is awarded to a Software as a Service organization that has partnered with MariaDB to keep their applications running smoothly. Prior to adopting MariaDB, Vergent used to manually write scripts for every customer request. Consequently, this process proved to be time-consuming. This partnership enabled Vergent to reduce overhead and make data more accessible to their customers.

Databases are the key to the success of any business and MariaDB is the backbone to mission-critical applications people rely on every day. Kurt Haberkamp, VP of customer success at MariaDB plc, praised these customers for creatively implementing our database products, making a significant contribution to their company and industry. Congratulations to each winner on their leadership. We’re proud that our database products are powering these businesses to be unstoppable in everything they do.

Vergent will receive the inaugural award at the OpenWorks 2023 user and developer conference in New York City on May 9th and 10th. Additionally, Vergent currently utilizes the expertise of MariaDB SkyDBA to meet their database administration requirements.

The MariaDB OpenWorks Wavemaker Award reflects Vergent’s commitment to customers, according to Johnny Withers, Vergent’s CTO. We continually aim to offer cutting-edge solutions for a positive lending experience for both lenders and borrowers.
