The goals are clear. But our methods are antiquated.
Financial institutions spend billions each year mining data for “intelligence” that they can use in attempts to deliver a loan offer at the opportune moment. Propensity modeling Segmentation strategy Predictive analytics Event triggers
Less than 2% of the time they succeed in capturing the attention of an interested consumer… At which point they present a loan application.
Loan applications suck.
Meanwhile… “Help - my customers are moving to mobile in droves!” Now what?
The industry’s response? Simplify the application.
Strip it down. Pre-populate it. Dress it up in a fancy outfit. Cram it on a 4” screen. And guess what? It’s still a loan application.
Here’s the really absurd part… Financial institutions have tremendous amounts of customer data at their disposal. In most cases, they already have all of the information necessary to make a responsible loan approval decision. So why do they still make customers jump through unnecessary hoops?
If the major friction point in the loan process is the application… DITCH THE LOAN APPLICATION
Don’t tell them what they want. Listen.
Don’t wait for them to come to you. Use your knowledge, your data, to better serve their financial needs.
Stop investing in educated guesses, and start investing in relationships.

Comprehensive Pre-screened Lending (CPL) CPL Strategy: Utilizing advanced customer relationship profiling and risk-based pricing criteria to pre-approve individuals for a personalized array of loan/credit products, then managing simultaneous communication and acceptance of the multi-product offers at all key customer touchpoints ― online and mobile banking, direct mail, email, in-branch and at the call center. CPL can be thought of as a personalized, pre-approved rate sheet, granting consumers perpetual insight into their personal credit worthiness and buying power. Pre-approved funds are just a click or a tap away. Anytime, anywhere. No loan application necessary! Preemptive Lending: Over time, customers become conditioned to know that they have credit conveniently available when they need it, positioning the FI as their customer’s primary lending resource.
Does it Work? You Bet! Award Winning pilot program at a $2 billion FI achieved more loan volume in its first year than traditional methods had yielded in the previous four years combined. Response rates more than doubled, and acquisition costs were cut by nearly 80%.
