Maintaining physical paperwork poses business costs to microlending institutions:
- · High Cost: Printing all loan application forms, KYC documents, and identification documents for verification. Warehousing, transportation, and courier costs.
- · Compliance Risk: Physical paperwork is prone to damage, wear and tear, and manual errors – leaving financial institutions vulnerable during RBI audits.
- · Team Utilization: Manpower is wasted on mundane paperwork-related tasks like physical verification and transportation of voluminous documents. With a digital solution, their productivity can be better utilized in collections and other services.
- · Delayed Disbursals and Customer Experience: Physical paperwork significantly increases turnaround time and delays disbursals. With a faster verification process and remote onboarding, Financial Institutions can now boost customer experience to a higher level.
With technology adoption, documents are just one click away and are easily accessible on its DMS. They can be auto-populated via the template Engine eliminating any chance of human error.
