The word Smart once meant fashionable, stylish, chic, modish and so on. Normally it was used as an attribute to humans, and in some cases to pets.
"Smart" of late has outgrown its original definition. We have now, smart buildings, smart cities, smart phones etc., Business processes that involve a set of predefined actions or events automated in workflows also deserve a precursor "Smart". Smart solutions are not simply fancy statements. Applications on lending, trading, health care are being developed as a smart solution.
The BFSI sector is highly process driven and efforts have been put in place to address efficiency,accuracy and security of financial transactions, that demand very stringent regulatory controls and MIS through adopting Core Banking Solutions.
Core banking solutions, enabled customers to do smart banking. More customer centric approaches are required in the portfolios of borrowing and lending of banks. Now the banks are more focussed in lending to improve their spread. The actual lending process goes through a series of events. To cite a few, customer capture, credit appraisal, KYC norms, collateral management, inspection, disbursement, monitoring asset quality, repayment, recovery, and closure of accounts.
The lending systems in vogue are partly automated, controlled in disparate systems and partly manual. For years, lenders have employed relatively static, tedious and highly complex lending models that lacked focus on consumer interest, experience, preferences and priorities.
In this, context, smart lending is a natural corollary, given that core banking solutions and payment systems are already in place. Smarter, faster, agile commercial lending: the future is all-in-one
Smart lending solutions at the centre seems to be artificial intelligence based new software algorithms that price and rate individual as well as business credit. Moreover, thanks to digitalization, paperless (digital) processing seems to have eliminated the slow and tedious pushing of paper between retailer, borrower and lender.
Take a peek at the features of smart lending solutions.
Web-based platform- data centre or cloud hosted. Integration with CRM
Comprehensive data capture for all application types Tightly integrated single point of credit assessment Enable lenders to streamline and holistically improve their loan processing capability for all commercial loan segments, including
Data flow- to and from core banking Query engine and report writer Integration with payment systems.
The next challenge would be to address inclusiveness. Millions cannot reach credit owing to trust deficit created by lack of credit scores, no collaterals and no bank accounts. Recently, in Kenya, a mobile based credit lending application Mkopo Rahisi (Wall of Love) owned by InVenture,Kenya has made waves in micro lending. With the user's permission, InVenture collects data from the applicant's mobile device to verify identity, build financial, behavioural, and social characteristics for proprietary algorithm, and to customise the loan terms to his or her unique circumstances. So far, it has been downloaded over 130,000 times, has more than 50,000 active customers and has disbursed 120,000 loans to middle and low-income Kenyans.
Now that's smart!!
The Meticulousness of efforts to ensure customer delight by each of the team member during the course of the project is appreciable. - Data Archival Project
Overall we are happy with the services provided by Nelito. The implementation team is sensitive to our support requirements and does a good job.
We are extremely thankful to the whole team who have devotedly committed and created this excellent database. Much of our time was wasted in data retrieval from i link where we were facing lots of issues.
You have given us an awesome product which is superior to our Finacle itself in its display capabilities. The great idea of taking pdf/word/excel option is simply superb. Merging the party code and Finacle CIF and account numbers are another feather in the cap.
We have successfully made Nelito's Fincraft Software for NBFC live in early March for LOS,LMS and Sanjiv Khalkho, Arijit Chakraborty with his team have been very instrumental in making this software live . I would like to appreciate on the turnaround time during the go live phase of the team in getting some of our key requirements done and helping our users to use the software for recording and disbursing all the sales from the software.
