Today, the commercial lending business is witnessing an upward swing. More financial institutions are offering new lending approaches, resulting in increased competition.
This has put pressure on businesses to quickly respond and complete credit risk assessments. As market conditions and regulations tighten, financial institutions need to optimize risk management processes, become operationally resilient, and enable a transparent view of risks. Lenders also face internal challenges such as non-existent or broken processes, complex business rules, and disparate technology or legacy systems. The inability to respond quickly to loan and credit requests impacts customer acquisition and loyalty. And risk officers, often lacking consolidated data needed for accurate and timely analyses, might be unable to identify risks and trends that can result in huge losses.
