Benefits of Microsoft 365 Copilot for Loan Officers

Loan officers Play a vital role in the credit engine of any economy. They hold and cater to the credit requirement to be satisfied by every needy business or individual. From varied portfolios like home loans, automobile loans, personal loans, etc. for individuals, to capital loans, business expansion loans, and loans for promoting businesses for organizations, they are the key to the growth of the credit sector thereby helping the economy.

With the complexity of these requirements in loan products offered, how they are delivered also became complex. Let us now understand how Microsoft Copilot can help Loan officers overcome some commonly faced challenges like Getting the right requirements and offering them the apt loan amount, complying with regulatory requirements, checking and approving override requirements without much dependency, etc.

Assessing a Requirement and Loan Amount

The primary step for any loan officer is to make a thorough assessment of both the loan requirement and the loan requestor, their payback ability with their credit history studied appropriately. Traditionally after the receipt of the loan application the loan officers had to go through a multitude of resources on the requestor’s profile, like bank statements, credit card statements, payback capacity, purchasing power, and a holistic view of their credit history which can take from days up to weeks, thereby increasing the chances of requestor leaving.

Copilot for Microsoft 365 can bring great value here to loan officers to complete such time-consuming research within minutes. When integrated with bank and credit APIs, copilot can pull details like spending behavior, payback pattern, any defaults made in credit repay schedules, any uneven records of the individual in bank transactions, overall credit score, etc. This can make the effort which used to be a stressful task to easy and smart one. Enabling faster disbursement of loans and retaining customers.

Regulatory and Compliance Requirements

One of the most important tasks of Loan officers is to make sure all the legal requirements and regulatory norms are met, for every loan approval before amount disbursement happens. For instance, a business loan might need far longer legal requirements to meet like it must be a legal one, it should be within the environmental and pollution control limits set by the government, etc.

Also for individuals like home loans, is the property a legally valid one or is this a primary or a secondary property of the individual, etc.? If not regulated these cietera may cause violations and legal consequences not only to the requestor but to the credit offering company as well as damaging its reputation.

Microsoft Copilot can be of great help in assessing the requestor’s requirement when provided with data, validate the same against the currently prevailing legal conditions, and come back if the requestor complies with all the legal and regulatory norms and if the request can be honored. This will bring a transformation in the assessment of every loan requirement.

Also, Coplot can suggest correct templates for every legal document when prompted with a simple query.

Handling Approval Delays and Overrides

One of the major challenges of Loan officers is to handle the delays in getting the approvals after the entire process of validating documentation and submission is completed. It becomes even more complex at times when the right authorities are unavailable due to critical circumstances.

The Copilot can enable e-signatures on the most secure Azure AD platform that can help loan officers get their approvals done irrespective of the location where their senior officers are. This can also help in case of override approval requirements, where an equally powerful authority can approve loans remotely, this can enhance the user experience a great deal.

Automating the Mundane Tasks

It is a convention for loan officers to have a huge workload in handling documentation for every application which is the most time-consuming task. Every act from receipt of the application to reviewing and entering it in the system, running communication to get 100% of details filled in, to maintaining the accuracy of key details like address, bank accounts, contact numbers, etc., can take up much time of their work hours for every staff.

So Loan officers are freed up for important strategic tasks such as applicant assessment and credit score research etc.

Customer service is as key for the credit industry as for any other industry. At every stage of the loan that is being processed, customers keep a close follow-up and like to know the current state of their application, approval status, amount disbursement status, etc.
