Adding Form Processing Into Your Financial Application

Digital mortgage form
As a developer working with lenders, you strive to build an application that makes life easier for your clients. In the financial industry, processing data is essential. In order to process it efficiently, lenders must collect data from a variety of different forms. Whether consumers are coming to them for a loan, bank account or credit card, lenders must collect a variety of personal information from them in order to approve or decline their request.

In an ever-changing digital landscape, financial institutions big and small are struggling to keep up with the instantaneous product offerings which consumers are coming to expect. This mindset is pushing lenders to reconsider their data gathering processes, searching for faster, more efficient solutions.


Manual Form Entry Is Outdated

There are so many forms consumers must fill out to get approved for financial requests. Loans, in particular, can be daunting. Underwriters need everything from pay stubs and bank statements to work history and credit score reports. When you think about it, that's a lot of data (in a variety of different formats) for lenders to sort through.

In today's world, manually entering data from paper forms is outdated – and, quite frankly, tedious. Why work harder, when there's the ability to work smarter? The only problem for lenders is that this technology is often expensive. They all need a solution that they can afford with more efficient capabilities. That's where your application can help.

Lenders can use digital technology to identify form types, convert them into the same file format, scan documents using optical character recognition (OCR), and extract information from forms, all thanks to software that adapts automatically to the format of the form being read.

Your application offers a variety of robust services for financial professionals, but is it lacking a forms processing component? Don't waste precious development time coding the functionality when a comprehensive solution is already available, and at an affordable price.
