Challenge

Šiauliu Bankas is a commercial bank providing financial services to private and corporate entities since 1992. Recently, Šiauliu Bankas identified that their lending systems were not agile enough to adapt to constant compliance and market changes in the financial sector. Furthermore, the manual work needed to process various lending operations, including corporate and private lending, was taking a lot of time, which could be used to generate new leads and increase sales.

As a bank we keep strong focus on business and consumer lending, thus to have innovative tools for quicker and better client assessment and loan origination was crucial for us. With Digital Loans by ETRONIKA we not only have a tool for risk management but are capable to issue a personalized Retail and SME loan within a fraction of time.”

– Mindaugas Rudys, Board Member at Šiaulių Bankas

Implemented solution

Šiauliu Bankas decided to trust ETRONIKA in optimizing lending processes and increasing the quality of financial services throughout all locations. ETRONIKA implemented DIGITAL Loans, an agile and user-friendly system, which provides extra flexibility when making quick changes and optimizes various lending processes.

ETRONIKA values its clients, so every product, including DIGITAL Loans, is configured for a convenient use even for less tech-savvy specialists. Simple yet functional UI, Wizard-based flows, and tools for self-learning create an unforgettable customer journey.

DIGITAL Loans also provides automatization of evaluating the credit rating of both private and corporate clients. On top of that, DIGITAL Loans is integrated with other Siauliu Bankas banking systems, as well as external registries and financial institutions.

Results

DIGITAL Loans optimized lending processes in Siauliu Bankas and created a more sustainable and user-friendly infrastructure, which ensures faster and more accurate decision making and reduces expenses.

  • Reduced loan issuing time to both private and corporate clients up to six times;
  • Effective control of operational risks guarantees safety and quality of lending processes;
  • The need for staff training for loan issuing is cut to a minimum;
  • Reduced new processes implementation time from 50 to 80 percent;

“The system is agile and simple – many changes can be made by a system administrator without any specific IT skills, hence eliminating costs of expensive programmers,” says Goda Butkiene, the Director of Financial Services Development Department. “This innovative system is integrated with external registries and internal banking systems. Not only the loan issuing system can evaluate private clients’ credit ratings, but it also provides the ability to evaluate corporate clients, as well, which is a totally new feature.”
