Newgen Software Inc., a global provider of low code digital transformation platform, NewgenONE, today announced that United Community (UCBI) has selected Newgen to transform its Small Business Loan Origination Process, including Construction, Small Business Term, Line of Credit, Commercial Real Estate, and Commercial C&I.
"Our customers trust us to provide a secure banking experience across our loan offerings, and we wanted to align our business growth strategy with our customer expectations. We were looking for a technology partner that could help us ensure scalability and flexibility and provide innovative solutions for better operational efficiencies. We selected Newgen, as they have deep domain expertise in banking, to partner with us in this transformation journey for our loan origination process," said Pete Peterson, Chief Retail Credit Officer at United Community.
Newgen's Loan Origination Solution is built on a low code platform that confers agility, flexibility, and scalability, enabling lenders to be future-ready. Leveraging the solution, the bank will be able to automate and streamline the complete loan origination process and seamlessly integrate with their existing core system and 3rd party applications (including credit bureaus, risk rating, e-sign, ECM, and more). This will help the bank to improve its process efficiency by eliminating redundant data entry and better managing data queues. With its comprehensive dashboard, the reporting module will allow real-time visibility into all stages of the loan cycle. The solution will also help the bank to stay on top of compliance requirements such as Reg B, Reg O, CRA, HMDA, 1071, etc.
"At Newgen, we are excited to undertake this partnership with United Community, and we are committed to ensuring the success of their transformation initiative across their loan origination process. Our dedicated Centre of Excellence team will guide the bank to perfect and automate the existing workflows and processes to improve the application turnaround time, ensure complete digital onboarding in minutes, and fast-track decisions with the in-built intelligent decision engine. Together, we are aiming for operational efficiency, speed, and scalability as a distinct competitive advantage, driven by our solution's low code capability," said Anand Raman, EVP and COO at Newgen Software Inc.
