5 Payment Inefficiencies Sabotaging Lender Profitability

Posted on October 11, 2023

In an era where the lending industry is under intense pressure to expedite application approvals and loan disbursements, payment pain points are not just inconveniences – they're significant roadblocks to success.

Digital lending is on the brink of reaching a staggering $22.4 billion USD by 2028. It's a world of opportunity where those in the industry are poised for growth and success.

However, amid this promising growth, the lending industry continues to grapple with losses ranging from $2.9 billion to $6.5 billion annually due to payment processing inefficiencies.

Our downloadable eBook explores how real-time payment solutions and advanced lending APIs are helping to address these challenges head-on, allowing lenders to enhance the customer experience, streamline operations, and unlock profitability.

The Challenge of Outdated Loan Payment Processing

Think of the slow movement of money through manual paper processing as a clogged artery in the financial bloodstream. It not only hampers efficiency but also leads to reconciliation issues that can be time-consuming and costly.

Sluggish decision-making and processing times in the lending sector are often caused by outdated, manual approval processes. These inefficient methods result in lost resources and profits and hurt lenders' competitiveness. It's time to address this challenge and pave the way for a more efficient lending ecosystem.

Lack of Loan Repayment Visibility And Complex Payment Flows

Lending institutions have a lot at stake when it comes to ensuring timely payments, both disbursements and collections. Manual payouts, chasing borrowers for repayments, and dealing with NSFs create a web of complexity akin to unravelling a maze of tangled wires. It's unnecessary and time-consuming, making payment processing an arduous task.

Simplifying this process is not just a convenience—it's a necessity for streamlined and efficient operations.
