Agile Lending

The lending environment has changed, banks need to change too 
Digital lending (excluding mortgages) is a total addressable market of $1 trillion in the U.S., and loan origination volumes could reach $90 billion by 2020 from about $25 billion. AI and machine learning will become standard technologies by 2023, according to a report entitled “The Future-Ready Commercial Bank Report” from Cornerstone Advisors.

“The needs of the commercial customer are following the same path as the retail customer—they demand things more rapidly, there’s an expectation for quick turnarounds, and we’re expected to do more to demonstrate an understanding of risk in specific markets and segments.”
Chief Lending Officer, $4 billion bank, The Future-Ready Commercial Bank Report, Cornerstone Advisors, 2018

However, most banks’ lending processes—including online application, onboarding, processing, underwriting and funding—have yet to be overhauled through technology. That means there is still a lot of opportunity to improve productivity, close more loans and increase revenue per loan with cheaper, faster and automated services. Customers expect it. Banks will not be able to grow and meet their customers’ expectations if they continue to rely on traditional, manual processes and channels that could be automated.

The time to make your move is now
Commercial borrowers are consumers too. These borrowers want technology-driven conveniences they get with retail banks and other providers. AI Foundry allows them to do just that with an easy to use technology that borrowers have come to expect.

"Overall, bankers aren't very comfortable with the state of their commercial banking capabilities. Bankers rate commercial lending and treasury/cash management among the least "future-ready" functions in banks, as less than three in 10 bank executives think their commercial banking functions are somewhat or very future-ready."
