Digital document capture, case management, and collaboration are the missing links to make the end-to-end digital lending vision a reality
Key research questions
- How can lenders reduce manual loan processing, reduce costs, and shorten timelines?
- What processes and technology should lenders start with?
- What new technologies comprise the end-to-end digital lending process?
Digital document capture and processing will automate loan origination processes that currently get bogged down in the back office.
Advances in digital lending technology now enable simple loan transactions to be completed in minutes, but for many types of secured loans with multiple documents, loan approval, and funding takes days or weeks. Selecting and implementing the right workflow-driven digital document capture and enterprise content management (ECM) technology will enable financial institutions to accelerate time to revenue, lower compliance risks, and outcompete fintech and branch-based competitors.
