With the pandemic causing unprecedented economic disruption, lenders are concerned about the future economic prospects of businesses and individuals. This makes it difficult for them to accurately assess the risk of default and set appropriate lending terms. Many businesses and individuals have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, with many experiencing declining income and asset value. This can make it difficult for lenders to accurately assess borrowers’ creditworthiness and determine whether they are able to repay loans. Aside from that, governments worldwide have implemented various measures to assist businesses and individuals affected by the pandemic, including changes to lending regulations. Lenders must navigate these changes and ensure compliance with new rules and guidelines.

Manual credit reporting strains banks and other lending institutions, resulting in higher labour costs and file backlogs that prevent loans from being closed on time.

What role does automation play in the credit reporting process?

Automated credit reporting streamlines the process of gathering information on a person’s credit history from multiple sources, such as banks, credit card companies, and other lenders, and compiling it into a comprehensive credit report. This makes it easier for lenders and financial institutions to assess a person’s creditworthiness quickly and accurately. Credit decisioning automation also helps to reduce errors and improve the accuracy of credit reports by eliminating manual data entry and minimizing human error.

How does automated credit reporting help lenders with loan disbursement and closure?

Automated credit reporting can help lenders with loan disbursement and closure in several ways:

  • Faster processing: It allows lenders to access credit reports quickly, which can help speed up the loan application process. This means lenders can quickly decide on loan disbursement and closure, which can be especially important for time-sensitive loans.
  • Accurate credit assessment: It helps lenders accurately assess the creditworthiness of borrowers. This can help lenders make better-informed decisions on loan disbursement and closure, which can help reduce the risk of default.
  • Improved risk management: It helps lenders identify potential risks associated with loan disbursement and closure. This can help lenders manage their risks more effectively and make more informed decisions on loan disbursement and closure.
  • Streamlined processes: It helps streamline loan disbursement and closure processes. This can help lenders save time and reduce administrative costs associated with manual credit reporting processes.

Overall, automated credit reporting can help lenders make better-informed decisions on loan disbursement and closure, which can help reduce risk, improve efficiency, and enhance the borrower’s experience.

What are the drawbacks of most of the market’s automated credit reporting apps?

There are several disadvantages of the major automated credit reporting apps on the market:

  1. Limited accuracy: Many automated credit reporting apps may not provide accurate information as they rely on limited data sources, which may not provide the full picture of a person’s credit history.
  2. Limited coverage: A lot of apps only cover some credit agencies or bureaus, meaning that some important information may not be included in the credit report.
  3. Security risks: Some apps may not have strong security measures to protect personal and financial information, making them vulnerable to hacking or data breaches.
  4. Limited features: Many automated credit reporting apps only provide basic credit reports and do not offer additional features or tools to help users manage their credit.
  5. Complexity: For users unfamiliar with credit reporting terminology and procedures, some apps may be difficult to use or understand.
