While many fintech firms are competing with traditional banks and lending institutions by offering loans that can be approved with just a tap on the phone, lenders are compelled to digitise their processes and offer various mobile lending solutions to compete with the market. However, though many mobile lending solutions are mushrooming, very few solutions help in speeding up the procedures and match the expectations of today’s millennial empowered borrowers.

Today’s millennial generation has entered the financial market with better technology like that of mobile apps and various other financial management suites that enhance the loan management process. Hence, it becomes imperative on the part of the lenders to adapt to the changing customer needs and expectations before it is very late.
Today’s empowered borrowers expect a quick processing time and faster decision-making tools. A recent study by PwC showed that three out of four demographic groups preferred online borrowing as opposed to traditional forms like contacting the branch or calling lenders. 
Hence, incorporating digital lending technology into the business forms the best way to propagate new products, customise the lending and decision making process and at the same time meet the customer requirements quickly. Finezza’s mobile ecosystem suite caters to the present millennial empowered borrowers and lenders as well, as it includes various components of the loan management system like customer acquisition, loan self-sourcing, loan servicing and loan collections all of which can be done with a tap of the finger.

Transformation into a digital lender is not that easy. It requires not just converting the paperwork into digital format but also restructuring the entire legacy back-end process. The Digital Banking report that researched the global state of digital lending found out that many organizations were beginning to embrace the need for online and mobile lending. Though there was significant growth in mobile lending and online lending processes, most of them were substandard and failed to meet customer expectations. 
34% of organizations had a mobile app for lending. As to the ability to complete the entire loan originating system through mobile, 31% of respondents were positive of completing the transformation process, 33% felt they would complete within and year and 12% in the next three years. These results prove that there is a stronger movement towards digitization of consumer lending. 
However, for the digitisation of loans through mobile apps, speed is a prime factor.
Lenders have to keep pace with the expectation levels set by other sectors like travel and retail, to meet the desire for immediate personalised service. Research on the time taken to complete a mobile loan application showed that 25% of organizations reported under five minutes while 55% said between five to ten minutes and remaining 20% said that it took more than ten minutes.
Hence merely installing a mobile app will not suffice. One has to streamline and revamp the existing process so that it integrates seamlessly, and also ensure speedy processing and delivery of loans as we move into the age of rocket science.
One must install a complete end-to-end foolproof mobile lending solution to optimise the digital lending initiative fully. Finezza offers a whole end-to-end mobile ecosystem to facilitate all requests, detect potential delinquencies, optimise the conversion funnel, and ensure seamless loan servicing.
