3 More Mobile and Digital Lending Best Practices to Help Survive the Madness

Have you filled out your bracket yet? If not, you better get on it soon since the big dance starts in just over an hour. It’s always interesting how so many people have unique strategies when deciding on the teams that will advance and eventually be crowned champions of college hoops. Some people have watched so many games this season that they can make educated decisions.
