The traditional loan origination process is lengthy and cumbersome due to the many manual tasks that could cause delays, errors, and confusion.
A Loan Original System (LOS) software can automate workflows to improve collaboration among the many parties involved, share information in real-time, and make sure the right department gets the right documents at the right time.
With the help of digitization and file sharing functions, you don't have to worry about inefficiencies caused by heaps of paperwork nor the logistics associated with passing paper files from one office to another.
There are many LOS platforms on the market, how can you find one that's right for your business? What features should you look for to maximize cost-efficiency?
Here are some key considerations when choosing a LOS software application:
- Accessibility and flexibility: provides the ability to originate a loan from anywhere via any device (e.g., desktop, tablets, smartphones) so your employees can maximize their productivity.
- Up-to-date technologies: meets today's fast-evolving customer expectations by offering the latest features and frequent upgrades.
- Easy-to-use: features an intuitive interface so you don't need to hire a large IT team to configure and administer the software.
- Visibility and Reporting: allows users to track workflows and get real-time analytics to optimize workflow and facilitate the loan application process.
- Customer communications: provides integrated CRM/POS and file sharing so you can effectively manage client relationships from a single interface.
- Security and compliance: adheres to the latest security standards to ensure that you stay compliant with various industry regulations, such as SSAE16 SOC2.
While it may seem easy to stick with what you've got, many legacy systems are hindered by outdated technologies and interfaces that don't serve today's demanding market.
