The Baker Hill Legacy

Cloud-based loan origination software for bankers.

Baker Hill delivers innovative banking solutions that empower financial institutions to generate growth, reduce risk, and improve productivity and profitability.


A trusted leader in financial technology for over 35 years, our innovative solution streamlines origination and portfolio management for business, consumer direct and indirect lending, while our award-winning business intelligence tools mitigate risk and generate growth—all through a single, integrated platform.

In 2015, Baker Hill was acquired by a $4.6 billion global private equity firm, The Riverside Company. With this acquisition came an aggressive commitment to continuous innovation to develop world-class solutions that help drive more profitable relationships for our clients.

The result? The only holistic loan origination, relationship management, and decision support system specifically designed to meet the changing needs of financial institutions of all sizes who want integrated solutions that meet their complex needs in an era of increasing regulation, risk aversion, consolidation, and changes in consumer demands.
