Off-the-Shelf Digital Lending Software Preferred by Banks Over Partnerships

In the American Banker article today, Banks Have the Need for Speed in Small Business Lending,” David O’Connell of the Aite Group says the emergence of more turnkey digital lending providers is giving banks the option to use off-the-shelf technology rather than referral partnerships.  He documents the preference for turn-key digital technology for bank digital lending rather than partnerships as a key trend for 2019.

We at RCGILTNER provide digital lending technology so FIs can serve their customers with technology they own, they control and under their brand and underwriting.  We provide the technology, proven processes and documented underwriting.  Best of all, we are one few turn-key providers that provides digital technology for monitor new and existing loans, and offers both small business and consumer services.

Banks Respond as Online Lenders Capture One in Four Small Business Loans

The latest FRB Survey of Small Business reports that one if four small businesses apply to an online lender, growing steadily from just 20% two years ago.  The reason is borrowers report faster speed, simplicity and flexibility compared to large and small bank lenders.

No doubt this is why competitors are now offering all-digital small business loans, such as PNC’s entirely digital small business loan, US Bank’s digital small business loan and Wells Fargo.  But many community banks today provide an all-digital small business lending experience using RCGILTNER’s Business MinuteLender®, such as $3B Centier of Indiana, $1.3B First Northern Bank of California or $600 MM The Fauquier Bank of Virginia.  Loans are provided digitally in minutes all under their brand, their underwriting, their compliance and their control.  RCGILTNER provides the technology.

Digital Credit Monitoring Key to Digital Lending Success

As digital lending technology grows in use to profitably provide loans to small businesses and consumers, credit monitoring is a key.  While many are automating the front-end loan process, digital credit monitoring of new and existing loans can have the biggest profitability and efficiency impact in using digital technology.  Prior to digital technology, our clients report spending hours a week monitoring existing small business loans which can be fully automated with our digital lending technology.

About 40% of business loan relationships are under $50k, and automated and digital monitoring is required to profitably serve these relationships.  Automated measurement of owner-guarantor credit, revenue and deposit activity, transaction activity including NSFs and loan usage and activity is provided for exception analysis and immediate reporting.  This saves officers and portfolio managers time so they can focus on acquiring new customers.

For more information on how RCGILTNER digital technology incorporates ongoing credit monitoring into our digital lending technology, contact us or visit our website.
