To get ahead of the competition, early-stage fintechs are constantly striving to approve and onboard more borrowers for credit. In theory, this should be easy — after all, there are plenty of qualified small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) looking for loans. Right?
Not exactly. As any fintech knows, expanding your customer base isn’t as easy as finding SMBs who want access to capital. The trick is to find qualified borrowers, who can take out loans without bringing additional risk to your business. To launch products faster and get ahead of the competition, you’ll need a strategy that maximizes approvals and minimizes risk.
Lendflow’s Credit Decisioning Engine API makes it easy to connect all your data sources and services through one unified API and a single contract, so you can go to market faster than your competition — and reduce risk.
The Problem with Traditional Data Aggregation
Traditional underwriting and onboarding processes are often manual and inefficient.
When it’s time to approve a loan, you’ll base the credit decision on a variety of data sources After all, advanced underwriting and onboarding in today’s fintech world involves a combination of data like KYC, KYB, document verification, accounting, payroll, and e-commerce — as well as cash flow analytics, personal and business credit, and bank data.
While all this data might seem to lead to improved loan decisioning, without an effective data aggregation API, the simple truth remains: it takes time and money to aggregate all these data points from their unique sources.
In a traditional decisioning process, you might need to contact dozens of data providers — each with their own separate contracts, data standards, and transfer policies. To expand your customer base and scale your operations effectively, you’ll need to either commit serious resources to data collection, or find a new way to build holistic customer profiles.
That’s where Lendflow — and advanced data aggregation — comes in.
