The Power of Automation in Credit Application Processing

Traditional credit applications can be time-consuming and frustrating for both the lender and the borrower. The manual process of collecting and verifying information, along with the back-and-forth communication needed to fill in missing data, can lead to delays and errors. However, with the power of automation, these issues can be a thing of the past.

The power of automation in credit application processing cannot be overstated. By implementing an automated system, lenders can streamline the credit application process and reduce the need for manual data entry. An automated credit application processing system can provide lenders with a competitive edge. By reducing the time taken to approve credit applications, lenders can improve their customer experience, providing a better overall service to their customers.

Streamlining Credit Applications with Automated Workflows

An automated credit application processing system can streamline the credit application process from start to finish. Electronic extraction of data from the application, credit bureau information, and other public sources can be used to populate the Customer Master File with key demographics and financial data. The system can generate ratios and period-to-period comparisons, which can be inputted into credit scoring models.

Automated workflows can pull data from various sources, enriching the data required from the customer on the application. Financial statements can also be submitted with an online credit application or captured from SEC filings if it’s a public firm. The automated credit solution goes a step beyond by generating ratios and period-to-period comparisons that can be inputted into the credit scoring models.

Speeding up Your Credit Approval Process with Automated Decision Making

Automated decision making is a game-changer for lenders looking to speed up their credit approval process. Automated decisions can be made within pre-set parameters, reducing the need for manual interventions. Even decisions that require human input can be summarized in a report format, with the system ensuring appropriate approval authorities. Automated solutions can also generate new customer documents, such as approval letters, contracts, leases, and security agreements.

By speeding up the credit approval process with automated decision making, lenders can improve efficiency, reduce processing time, and provide faster, more efficient service to customers. Automated decision making can also minimize errors and improve accuracy, helping lenders make better-informed decisions.

Generally, it can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for a credit application to be reviewed and a decision to be made. However, with the use of automated credit application processing systems, lenders can drastically reduce the time it takes to review credit applications and provide faster, more efficient service to customers.

2. What happens when you submit a credit application?

When you submit a credit application, the lender will review your application to assess your creditworthiness and ability to repay the loan.
