Digital Loan Processing: What’s New for Banks?

Digital Lending has benefits enhanced by a data-first outlook and modernized systems

For many years now, a number of financial startups have successfully set up digital lending platforms. In some cases, digital-only fronts are the sole force driving lending.

Where digital lending is a threat to Traditional Banks, quick digitization can safeguard them. An end-to-end digital experience, low costs on transactions, and in-app tools helping to mold financial habits are huge value additions to new-age consumers.

Banks need to sustain customer-centric digital experiences at new scales. Especially, where Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and Cloud technologies will soon make up a majority of Banking infrastructure.

A flexible and scalable platform for digital lending could result in raising loan volumes while reducing operational costs, improving underwriting, and lowering fraud rates too.

What Readies Banks for New Age Digital Lending?

Before bringing Big Data Analytics to the forefront, it is necessary for banks to harness the power of a truly transformative data outlook – Centralized Data.

Using Data Warehouses for Centralized Data, Banks edge closer toward automation for loan generation. Banks can highlight common data points such as credit score, household income, and demographics, and create in-house data-driven processes for loan sanctioning.

Furthermore, Centralized Data transforms infrastructure to promote automated regulatory reporting and data-first credit monitoring to introduce predictive analytics for credit risk.

Benefits of Digital Lending Systems for Banks Today

Loan origination can be automated with digital lending solutions, saving valuable time and redirecting human resources from redundant tasks of data entry and verification. Data aggregation can be automated for relationship managers (RMs) to access relevant data and bring risk-monitoring scores to their fingertips.

Data cleansing can be automated with AI-ML-powered systems. Data Synchronization can keep redundant data out of the way. And, data subscriptions can deliver time-sensitive data to analysts, researchers, and c-suites.

Faster Digital Lending with Online Applications

Online lending interfaces and applications are offered by every bank today. It saves time and helps with better decisions, based on the amount of information shared by the prospect.

These interfaces can help borrowers access credit information sourced directly from external Credit Information Companies (CICs), helping lenders sanction loans quicker and reduce turnaround time.

Automated Data Collection for Pre-qualification

Data Automation helps in streamlining and provides reliable and consistent dataflow for any stage of the loan origination process such as Credit Analysis, Credit Presentation, Portfolio Risk Analysis, Decision, and Approval.

Data automation accelerates the lending process while offering improved reporting and audit reports.

Reliable Underwriting with Intelligent Decisioning

Manual Credit Underwriting processes are being replaced by digital underwriting not only because of optimized access to borrower data. AI/ML-powered intelligent decisioning is a driving factor too.

On analyzing multiple aspects of a potential borrower including alternative data, new big-data-enabled lending solutions speed up approvals while providing a quicker and more reliable lending environment.

Easy Data Integrations using Cloud Technology

Cloud technology is making services available to a wider range of clients, simplifying applications, and improving connectivity between multiple systems and data sources.

A few inclusions that Banks are increasingly considering for easier digital lending are cloud-based Banking as a Service (BaaS) solutions to increase co-lending and include newer credit enablement options.

On the data front, the benefits of cloud-based loan management data integration are undisputed. Lower capital and operational costs, easier data integration, and seamless data delivery to multiple decision-making teams.

Optimized Activity Tracking and Reporting

Once a borrower receives the funds, loan origination ends. However, the next process of credit monitoring requires data and borrower information to be formatted, stored safely, and transferred seamlessly.

In order to achieve this, the tracking and reporting solutions should have easy access to lending data.

By storing and accessing Centralized Data, solutions improve the data flow of borrower information. It integrates with solutions for asset classification and credit monitoring. The information stored can be easily accessed for loan monitoring, budgeting, and accounting.
