What do credit unions, community financial institutions, retailers, B2B companies, and manufacturers all have in common? They are a vital part of the small business ecosystem—which highly impacts the US economy—and have the power to enable small businesses with better rates, terms, and credit options.
The rapid rise of small business creation during the pandemic and beyond has proven to be a promising growth opportunity for firms that influence the small business ecosystem, especially if the firms can address the high volume of new business accounts applying for new lines of credit and credit terms online. Unfortunately, many of these firms are facing a difficult dilemma in updating their operations to run efficiently enough to automate their existing credit approval processes in a way that can serve business customers digitally and in a timely manner before customers look elsewhere.
It’s a difficult scenario for smaller firms to handle operationally, and at a time when markets are fickle: How do firms invest in automating and updating their own operations, like credit approvals, with minimal resources and fast? Usually, it takes a lot of investment, time, resources, and agility to automate manual processes across organizations in a way that is secure and efficient. This scenario often gives larger competitor firms who have the resources to build automation in-house an advantage in addressing the market for small businesses.
