Are you a company looking to support the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)? We understand that traditional loan financing practices can be challenging to keep up with. That’s why our innovative SaaS solution is here to revolutionize how you support SMEs with the financing they need to thrive.
According to the EY Global SME survey, 66% of SMEs are interested in accessing faster credit, and 53% find it important that a bank/financial provider offers an easy-to-use digital experience/self-service platform.
SMEs face unique financing challenges that are different from those of larger businesses. Here are some peculiarities of SME financing and loans:
– Collateral limited: SMEs often have limited collateral, which makes it difficult to secure traditional bank loans. Collateral is a form of security that banks require to minimize their risk in case the borrower defaults. However, many SMEs do not have the assets to use as collateral, making it challenging to secure financing.
– High risk: SMEs are often considered high-risk borrowers due to their small size, limited operating history, and higher failure rates. This can make it more difficult for them to obtain loans. And when they do, the interest rates may be higher than those charged to larger, more established businesses.
– Lack of credit history: SMEs may not have an extensive credit history, making it difficult for lenders to assess their creditworthiness. This can result in higher interest rates or the need for a personal guarantee from the business owner.
Our Core Lending solution allows lending companies to serve their customers and manage different payment solutions, making it easier for SMEs to access credit.
Emerging trends in SME financing with advanced software solutions:
– Innovative credit scoring: Modern loan origination platforms are moving away from traditional credit scoring methods and utilizing alternative data to assess an SME’s financial health.
– Integration with business tools: Loan management systems that can seamlessly integrate with digital tools used by SMEs expedite the loan application process and enhance efficiency.

– Scalability: Loan origination platforms designed with scalability in mind can adapt to an SME’s growing financial requirements.
– Feedback mechanisms: Digital lending software enables real-time feedback, allowing lenders to understand and address the specific needs and challenges faced by SMEs.
– Security and compliance: Loan management systems ensure security and regulatory compliance through advanced encryption methods and regular audits.
