Lending digitalization has been a trend in recent years, and then the pandemic quickly accelerated transformations to meet borrower demand. Now digital lending is not just a trend; it is a necessity for banks to stay competitive and in-line with borrower expectations.

To meet and exceed these expectations, financial institutions must find ways to streamline historically inefficient processes, including loan documentation. Loan documentation was traditionally a paper intensive process, but it doesn’t have to be with technology advancements.

Join this Abrigo and Finastra webinar to uncover the most common loan production challenges and how to alleviate them. You will learn:

  • The most common loan documentation errors
  • How to avoid frequent risk-causing mistakes
  • The power of digitalization using APIs and other technology
