Fremont, CA: The need for digital lending platforms and events has increased due to the COVID-19 crisis. Banks and credit unions should simplify borrowing and provide more options for customers to meet the needs of current borrowers as well as future borrowers. The coronavirus pandemic has disturbed the flow of the entire world of banking and the consumer market place at once. Bank and credit union branches closed, paychecks stopped, loan payment deferrals became a normal thing and sources of new funding lessened.

The majority of the financial institutions are reluctant to change their basic lending processes. From application to close, most lending platforms are complex and time-draining for both consumers and financial institutions. In order to boost the digital lending process, a technology solution is required that can provide a seamless experience to the loan customer from application to close. The method of borrowing that includes steps such as complete an application provide documentation and signatures, monitor progress and receive funds needs to be easy for the borrower.

The coronavirus pandemic has taught people how leveraging data, analytics, and digital technology can simplify everything from purchasing goods online to getting groceries or meals delivered, to working remotely.
