The rise of the digital age has brought on significant transformations in technology across multiple industries and landscapes. There’s definitely no exception with the banking and financial industry as well. There has been wider adoption of loan management systems with an increasing need for faster and more efficient platforms to streamline and automate loan origination and loan servicing processes.
Loan management systems today should cater to simple and cost-efficient processes, one that can immediately assess a customer’s eligibility within shorter durations to approve and disburse funds.
Often, larger financial institutions face challenges in using traditional lending systems, especially when customer bases increase, servicing loans becomes more complex. Hence, lenders today rely on adopting loan management systems to help streamline their processes, scale faster, and customise features to achieve complete automation. This in turn presents financial institutions to hold a more competitive edge in the market.
What is a Loan Management System?
Loan management systems essentially is a digital platform that would help automate every step of the loan life cycle, from the point of submitting a loan application to servicing a loan. The use of legacy loan management systems required users to be more meticulous, consuming more time to collect, assess, and verify applicants’ information, credibility, and trustworthiness to repay back a loan. Hence, the importance of adopting a robust loan management system helps automate these procedures, let alone provide useful analytics and reporting insights for both lenders and borrowers.

Struggle to scale up
- Financial institutions tend to manually manage payments, settlements, write-offs, and other core functions on different platforms.
- Launching new financial products requires manual input and consumes more time.
- Payment tracking and reconciliation are a significant and constant hassle.
- Updating the general ledger, journal entries, and bookkeeping are all done manually on excel or other spreadsheet software.
High customisation costs
- Existing systems lack speed in catering to new product requirements within a short period.
- Customisation efforts take a long time and may incur additional costs to make necessary changes.
- Rules and parameter settings are outdated.
Use of obsolete technology
- Existing systems used must be installed on a desktop and are not web-based.
- Use of old fashioned user interface, displaying lines of code on the screen.
- Technology in use may not support loan rescheduling and restructuring.
