Buyer’s Guide

What Is Loan Origination Software?

Loan origination software is a tool that allows banks and financial institutes to automate the loan related processes like underwriting, credit decision, and borrower verification. A loan origination system typically specializes in one of two loan areas: consumer lending or mortgage lending. Compared to a mortgage loan, consumer loans are much simpler to review and require less information to process.

Loan origination software is generally used by the following sectors;

  • Banks
  • Non-banking financial institutions (NBFCs)
  • Micro financing institution
  • Credit cooperatives
  • Fintech companies
  • Mortgage loan originators/brokers
  • Housing finance companies
  • Small finance banks

Loan origination software can be used for two purposes - The consumer loan origination purpose, and the mortgage origination purpose. There is often confusion between the consumer loan origination software and mortgage origination software, but there is a slight difference that sets them apart.

What Is The Difference Between The Consumer Loan Origination System Vs. The Mortgage Origination System?

  • Consumer loan origination software: The consumer loan origination system automatically handles the applicant’s loan procedure and releases the fund as soon as it gets sanctioned by the financial institute. The majority of loans that are supported by consumer loan origination software involve direct auto loans, business loans, indirect auto loans, home equity, personal loans, retail loans, etc.    

  • Mortgage loan origination software: Mortgage loans is a system designed specifically for the mortgage lenders that enables consumers to apply and receive financial assistance to buy a home, or to against the value of the home. The mortgage loan origination software reflects important information related to the mortgage like amount tenor pricing, repayment type, frequency of repayment, collateral offers, etc. One major factor that sets apart the mortgage loan origination process is that it involves an intermediary called a mortgage broker. The mortgage broker's role is to find the best suitable lenders for the applicant and submit the necessary documents to lenders/banks on behalf of the loan applicant. Though it is unnecessary to apply for a mortgage through a mortgage broker, most prefer taking this route. Most mortgage brokers use either loan origination software (LOS) or mortgage CRM to manage their tasks. The loan origination software for brokers enables the users to search for loans, communicate with banks, and manage the overall loan origination procedure.

What Are The Benefits Of Loan Origination Software?

  • Faster authentication and verification process:  The process of authentication and verification of applicant information like account information, mortgage history, bank statements, and credit score becomes faster with the LOS system. 
  • Automated workflow: The loan origination system allows banks to automate the workflow, which helps them to maintain consistency throughout the loan origination process. 
  • Automatic notification:  The consumer loan origination software notifies the applicant about the loan approval through text message or email. 
  • Digital documents:  Digital documents propels the loan origination processes and reduces the overall costs. It takes away all the hassles of paper documents like sending documents through courier for signing.
  • Better customer service:  Due to multichannel communication systems and faster customer service, the boarding of customers (borrowers) becomes easier.
  • Verifying KYC: By integrating third-party data sources through API, the loan origination system can extract the necessary data from trustworthy sources to check KYC.
  • Accurate decision:  The commercial loan origination software provides lenders with detailed insights about the borrower’s loan request. It becomes easier for lenders to make decisions on lending money to the borrower.
  • Eliminate fraud detection: Loan origination solutions with predictive analysis can determine the risk of sanctioning a loan to the buyer. 
  • Predictable revenue: With loan process automation, one can easily predict the revenue the leads can fetch.

What Are The Features One Must Look Into Loan Origination Software?

  • Integrated document management 
  • Loan auto decision
  • Automated loan status
  • Reports and analytics
  • Lead management
  • Third-party integrations
  • Data extraction and verification
  • Validate data across documents
  • API for data exchange
  • LOS origination and POS capabilities
  • CRM functionality

Why Do Banks And Financial Institutes Need Loan Origination Software?

For any business, customers are the biggest asset; if the business fails to build a strong customer base, it may not last long. Banks and other financial institutes should invest in Loan Origination software as it can enhance the experience of the customers approaching for loans or other financial assistance. Check the following points that are most commonly complained by a customer during a loan process:

  • Offered irrelevant product or services
  • Same data captured multiple times and multiple places
  • Delay in getting pre-approval
  • Unreasonable or excessive document requests
  • Inability to transition between channels
  • Not offered relationship pricing (customer relationship)
  • Submission of multiple applications for multiple products
  • Multiple in-person visits to the branch
  • No visibility into real-time status of the application

These issues can be resolved completely with the help of top loan origination software. The advanced loan origination software allows users to approve loan applications in real-time. It eliminates all the unnecessary steps that usually delay loan approval or cause friction between consumers and the financial institutes. Check the following points.

  • Streamlining process: The loan origination is streamlined by automating the processes like account opening, document generation, workflow management, etc.
  • Enhancing customer relationship: With centralized customer data, it becomes easy for banks to track customer history and use it to build a better relationship.  For instance, the banks can use these data to offer a special discount to their loyal consumers or exceed the loan amount limit.
  • Credit scoring: The loan origination solutions can be used for credit scoring and collateral valuation.
  • Easy transition: The commercial loan origination software exposes the origination process to all the proprietary channels so that the customer can easily transit from one channel to another. 
  • Single submission for all products: The loan origination system removes the application complexity by allowing users to submit multiple products and bundle products all at one go.

Successful banks and financial organizations are no longer focused on profitability alone but on enhancing the "customer-facing" process like origination. Reports suggest that the global loan origination software market size is expected to grow at CAGR 14. 2% in 2025 and will reach 5273.2 million dollars. It implies that lending organizations are optimistic about the benefits of loan origination software. 

How Can An Organization Successfully Implement The Loan Origination System?

Step 1) Infrastructure readiness: In this step, the organization should analyze their infrastructure capabilities and conduct a thorough review of factors like costs, data-security, long-term maintenance, data security, etc.  Based on the reports, the organization can determine whether to continue with the traditional in-house hosting system or use the software delivered as a service (SaaS).

Step 2) Match software features:  Different financial institutes have different loan structures. They may differ in their interest rates, taxation, and fund release criteria. It is essential that the organization match their requirements with software before buying them out.  The best way of doing this is to view the RFP (Request for Proposal) submitted by the loan origination software vendors and compare the features offered by them.  The decision-makers can also review the white papers or ask for a free demo to get better visibility on the vendor's offering.

Step 3) Select the vendor: Once the infrastructure is ready and the right pick of the software is done, then it is time to get in touch with the vendor.

Step 4) Take approval from an authorized person:  All the necessary documentation and approval for boarding the vendor service is performed.

Step 5) Integrating LOS system: It is critical to discuss about the software integration facilities. Once the integration requirements are clarified, the software vendor can proceed with the integration process.

Step 6) Verify legal compliances: The next step is to verify the Software compliance.

Step 7) Acting administrator:  Identify the person who takes complete charge of the loan origination solutions in the organization, all the communication about the software should be done through this person. He will act as a mediator between the users and software vendors.

Step 8) Investigate: Find out whether software users are facing any challenges in using the LOS software.

Step 9) Train the users: The software vendor should train the users for its optimum use.  It helps users to quickly put the LOS system in use.

Step 10) Evaluate the loan origination software: It is necessary to evaluate the performance and utility of the software in frequent intervals. It will help users to determine the ROI on the software and whether the implementation was successful.

Key Elements To Consider Before Investing In Loan Origination Software

  • Scalable:  Financial institutes may have to deal with many loan applications, and the numbers can rapidly shoot up. It is essential that the loan origination software is scalable and accommodates the lending business's growing needs.
  • Compatible to mobile and web:  With the rising number of mobile users, it is essential that LOS software is compatible with mobile and web. A LOS system with mobile device support can significantly impact the client’s business.
  • End-to-end Automation:  Automation is the key to obtain maximum output and reduce operational costs. End-to-end automation of loan origination software enables financial institutes to close more qualified loans faster with improved operational efficiency.   
  • Security parameters:  Security is an important part of any software, especially when it involves money. The users can ask the LOS vendor on how to store the data and safeguard the data from any breaches. 
  • Smooth third party integration: Though a standalone loan origination system with the in-built features is much appreciated, few features can only be imported from external sources. Loan origination software must support end-to-end 3rd party integration.
  • Software cost: The loan origination system comes in various price models based on the features. The amount of your investment should be tailored to the organization size and requirements.  It is important that users verify the software cost and hidden charges before buying it.
  • Comprehensive view:  Besides the loan origination process, the top loan origination software should give a comprehensive view of loan disbursal, the credit assessment, and loan repayment modules.
  • User-friendly interface:  A simple loan origination system with a simple workflow is the first thing users want to see in their LOS system. 
  • Customer support:  For uninterrupted functioning of the LOS system, the software must be backed with strong customer support. Good customer support could save a lot of time and unnecessary costs in fixing the technical glitch.

The users or startups who are having their first interaction with the loan origination system and are not willing to take monetary risks by buying expensive tools can always consider using a free loan origination software or the trial version offered by the best loan origination software vendors.

Loan Origination Software Trends To Watch

  • Data scraping: Data scraping is the process of importing information from a website into a spreadsheet or local file saved on the computer. The data scraping can allow the financial institution to determine how prompt a borrower is while repaying the loan. If the loan origination software can extract the user’s payment history from various sources, it is easier for banks to decide on the loan approval.
  • Cloud technology: Cloud services enable lenders to implement the latest loan origination software (LOS) without the need for additional on-premise investments in IT infrastructure and operational overhead. The loan processing software based on the cloud can be scaled easily. Another advantage of cloud technology is that the documents can be well managed and securely stored on the cloud.   
  • Automated decision rules: By using predetermined decision rules on loan applications, the software can fast-track the approval process. 
  • Use of ML and AI in the lending process:  As AI and ML are advancing, the financial organization is incorporating them into more segments. Primarily the technology can be used for checking discrepancies, credit scoring, and automated loan offer generation.
  • Microservices in LOS system: The loan origination software can accelerate the functions by incorporating the microservice architecture in the system. 

Security And Safety About Loan Origination Software

Yes, most of the loan origination software is safe and secure to use.

The loan origination software that follows strong security measures like multi-factor authentication, data encryption, installing the latest security patch, following regulatory compliances, data-backup, etc., are safe to use. Some users who don’t have a strong IT infrastructure might even prefer using a cloud-based lending system. 

If an organization’s lending operation spans disparate LOS platforms, it would be difficult to maintain uniform compliance across all the platforms.  Also, directing data and information integrity throughout the organization could be problematic. It is usually preferable to use a single LOS platform for better security and compliances.
