Times are changing also in the lending industry. Consumers are used to having access to information and services 24/7, but traditional loan software does not allow for it. Also, going through a long manual process until they are finally given any feedback on their loan application isn’t an option when you want to meet the current consumer requirements. Besides that, huge software systems are complex to maintain from both the software and the legislative perspective.

Close Origination is designed to offer speed, efficiency and an optimal result for both the applicant and the loan provider. The solution is available 24/7 for consumers who submit applications by web or mobile applications, as well as for applications submitted by dealers, intermediaries and sales agents. Within Close Origination, the application is being processed in 10 steps ranging from automatic data extraction of IDs, salary slips or bank statements, checks with internal and external sources, automatic and manual assessment of the application (incl. credit scoring and risk based pricing) and the eventual offer and payment.

Our expertise in loan origination involves full knowledge of the Dutch and Belgian regulations and legislation, credit scoring methods, knowledge and connection to BKR/NBB, handling stipulations (Dutch and Belgian documents), fully understanding what risk analysis means and having deep knowledge of the Dutch and Belgian lending market both from the customer and the broker (branch) lending point of view.

Close Origination enables your organization to considerably shorten the application process, keeps the applicants informed about the status of the application throughout the whole process, and provides them with an answer on their loan application within several minutes.

10 Steps in Loan Origination

1.

New application is created.

A new loan application is received in Close Origination from a web, mobile or any front office application. This can be done via a web service or HDN interfaces so intermediaries, dealers and retail partners can all serve their customers in this process.

2.

Internal sources are consulted.

Loan application is enriched with data from internal sources to execute the necessary verifications. These are for example the clients' CRM systems, administration systems of intermediaries and dealers, and employee administration systems. Besides that, an AFM-register check on the intermediary licenses is performed.

3.

Pre-score is calculated.

In this optional step, a preliminary score is provided based on the evaluation of information from the first 2 steps.   

4.

Consulting external sources.

Loan application is enriched with data from external sources (among which BKR, EVA, Focum and Experian) for the purpose of compliance, fraud prevention and creditworthiness evaluation. Additional sources can easily be added to the process.

5.

Automatic assessment.

The application is assessed based on the information retrieved from the previous steps. Maximum loan capacity, credit restrictions such as the monthly instalment, (theoretical) duration of the loan, credit rating and the interest rate (based on JKP and nominal rate) are automatically calculated. In addition, a credit risk profile can be determined and taken into account when evaluating.  

6.

Manual assessment.

Complex loan applications may be processed manually by the underwriter, thus the system also enables traditional underwriting processing, but in a very efficient way.

7.

Proposal is created.

The proposal, including the corresponding stipulations list and the validity of the offer/contract is generated.

8.

Evaluation of stipulations.

Stipulations such as ID, proof of income, bank statement, proof of living costs, etc. are processed and tested on fraud and on consistency. After all information from the application, external sources and the supporting documents have been verified, the final assessment takes place. 

9.

Loan disbursement.

Disbursements and possible prepayments of existing loans are administered and checked by means of the mandatory four-eyes-principle. Hereafter, the sign off is given.

10.

New contract is sent to back-office.

Data for contract administration is collected and the whole client file is forwarded to the back-office application. Optionally, a welcome letter can be forwarded to the applicant(s) and/or the intermediary.
