Why consumers walk away from loan apps that aren’t intuitive

first_img 28SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Steve Maloney Steve Maloney is president/CEO of Sync1 Systems, has more than 20 years of experience in the Information Technology field in addressing issues specific to the financial services industry.  Prior … Web: https://www.sync1systems.com/solutions Details When it comes to loan apps and the digital age, outdated techniques won’t work. Millennial consumers “live” on their mobile devices while Generation Z was raised on digital from birth. Hence, younger consumers rely heavily on smartphones for shopping, banking, social media, work, entertainment, and reviews/feedback. It’s no surprise that lenders, who strategically build their mobile apps with smartphone users in mind, are attracting more mobile-centric shoppers. Potential applicants might want to pay off student loans early or purchase their first car or home.But, what if you’re a lender and your site lags? What if you’re optimizing ads to no avail? What if you have high bounce rates and churn – despite your best efforts? And importantly, why are some apps ignored, like yesterday’s Twitter feed, and others are coveted and prized, like Instagram?Potential loan applicants don’t complete digital loan transactions due to slow page load speeds. It might also be apps or sites that aren’t intuitive for multichannel borrowers or they’re not optimized for mobile. Let’s take a look at what your loan apps should include and ways to enhance your online lending presence.Auto Loans: Consumers Expect Mobile-Centric ExperiencesJ.D. Power found that with auto lenders, well-designed apps can improve customer satisfaction and about 47% of car buyers shop online first before going to a dealership. Leveraging your digital online presence can improve your lending strategy whether it’s for auto lending or other lending products. Further, expediting loans, better user experiences and reducing negative sentiment can lead to higher ROI and lower costs. Win-win. So, what does this entail? Glad you asked.Improve experiences and lower costsLet potential applicants answer a few targeted questions to start the loan origination process. While auto-fill features and auto saving data reduce human errors, collecting relevant data is for future document usage. You won’t incur costs from human labor that has to review applications manually.Your loan origination software might include:Easy-to-understand online applications, customizable forms, and automated decision emails.Pre-approval letters, credit pulls, and disclosures.Loan status updates, closing contracts (with reduced closing times), terminology, and support (chatbots, live) for optimal experiences.Capture relevant data, build trust, and improve workflow strategiesAn enhanced loan origination platform can capture application data and store documents for compliance and regulation purposes. With digital records and collected data, there are no physical copies or forms to fill out or store. It should be almost as easy as taking out a loan from a friend!Digitization in the loan process also reduces human errors. All fields in the loan origination system are entered correctly, applications can be reviewed in real-time, and consumers can lock-in interest rates.Because applicants expect a seamless and secure interface, every touch point can build trust, loyalty, and confidence (which leads to referrals). To further enhance their experiences, include newsletters, ecards, and other ways to stay top-of-mind with new borrowers.For businesses with optimized mobile lending apps, there are cost-saving benefits.Gartner estimates that within 2 years, about 66% of businesses will offer virtual online support. This represents a 50% uptick from 3 years ago. Optimized mobile loan apps that include artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and chatbots can reduce labor costs. They can offer digital assistance and voice banking and automate routine tasks. They can even create milestones, improve workflows, and store insightful data to cross-promote other lending products.Reduce churn and bounce ratesOptimizing your loan app can reduce your bounce rates. Consumers want to give you their business. But, they need to know your app saves time and has enhanced features.To demonstrate how much influence consumers have, here are a few interesting stats:About 75% of consumers expect reliable service and assistance (online, brick-and-mortar).A record 77% will recommend a business to friends if their experience is positive, but 67% cite bad experiences as their reason for churn (negative feedback). Additionally, nearly 60% change brands if they had a bad experience.Nearly 80% of shoppers use their smartphone in a business to compare competitor prices and reviews.Close to 33% of customers ended relationships with brands that didn’t offer personalized online experiences (chatbots, virtual assistants).Credit Union Loans: Consumers Want Convenient Online LendingPWC found that about 80% of consumers attribute convenience, speed, and friendly support to positive customer experiences. Hence, your lending techniques are important.Millennials and Gen-Z like the anytime/anywhere approach when banking and completing transactions online. Hence, loan apps should be easy to complete online 24/7/365. Your software provider can tailor your app based on your audience.A few tips include:Have software designers configure the appropriate drop-down menus. Set validation rules that guide applicants through the lending steps.Test your app on simulated devices and configure it in real-time. As market conditions, interest rates, and lending strategies change; you can update it accordingly.To avoid mobile app mistakes, use large call-to-action (CTA) buttons, action images, and colors reflecting your brand. For accessible design, avoid violating Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) laws.Note: Keep your app or site relevant with helpful features only a few clicks away and test your page load speeds as borrowers might be on smartphones (with only their thumb or index finger).Optimizing your app reduces the need for paper documents and it can reduce human errors. You can provide research, real-time rates, lending terminology, and chatbots. This provides better experiences regardless of the borrower’s channel (online, in-person).Ultimately, a responsive loan app can influence applicants, offer better experiences, and simplified loan applications can lead to increased referrals and ROI, and lower churn. Remember, consumers return to apps with ongoing value. Target features your applicants and borrowers want. Meeting their needs and nurturing them early can help when you’re ready to cross-promote (lifestyle loans, alternative lending) later, and with successful loan app strategies – you will meet again.

Memorial should honor the triumphs

first_imgGreat public memorials are both a remembrance and a tribute to the triumph of the human spirit. The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which recently opened in Montgomery, Ala., is a good example. It remembers the thousands of victims of lynching, conveys the horror and injustice, and invokes not only an appropriate reaction and understanding, but does so in a way that is uplifting and inspirational. Like the Vietnam Memorial, it draws people to it and portrays the atrocity while teaching: “never again.”    I’m a supporter of a Holocaust memorial in Niskayuna. I believe it’s appropriate and necessary. But I find the proposed design concept opaque and cold. I think it can be better. I sincerely hope the planners rethink the artistic vision and incorporate elements that also commemorate the triumph of the Jewish people over hate.Melinda PerrinNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Puccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Sufficient food supply, weak demand to lower April inflation: BI

first_imgRead also: BI to dominate ownership of ‘pandemic bonds’ as debt burden grows“Another factor is that the economic growth level will be lower than the country’s production capacity, resulting in a low level of demand.”Perry said the central bank saw little impact from the weakened rupiah on annual inflation, adding that inflation expectations remained well-anchored following BI’s monetary operations.In March, several commodities prices in the personal care and food and beverage expenditure groups rose, Bank Mandiri chief economist Andry Asmoro wrote in a recent research note.Read also: Panic buying hurts consumption growth in the long run, analysts say“The inflation was related to COVID-19 as the outbreak increased demand for hygiene products and online orders of food and beverages due to the social distancing policy,” Andry said. Bank Mandiri estimated this year’s inflation would reach 3.25 percent.“This relatively higher inflation forecast compared to the 2019 realization of 2.72 percent is caused by a higher risk of volatile inflation, particularly food inflation due to the COVID-19 outbreak, which has limited the food supply.”Topics : Bank Indonesia (BI) expects the April inflation rate to drop to 2.8 percent year-on-year (yoy), from 2.9 percent in March, as a result of sufficient food supplies and weak demand, the central bank governor says.BI Governor Perry Warjiyo said the central bank’s survey estimated 0.2 percent month-to-month (mtm) inflation in April, while yoy inflation would stand at 2.8 percent. The rate is consistent with BI’s inflation target range of 2 to 4 percent this year.“Factors that affect inflation remain under control as the central government and regional administrations work hand in hand to ensure the availability of the food supply,” Perry told reporters during a media briefing on Thursday.last_img read more

The real reason Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny went on strike

first_imgThe real reason Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny went on strike Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has refused to take part on the club’s pre-season tour of America (Picture: Getty)Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny went on strike in the belief the club had priced him out of a potential return to France.The 33-year-old stunned Unai Emery when he informed the Spaniard he was refusing to take part in the club’s pre-season tour of America having reported for training earlier this week.Emery reacted furiously and immediately informed Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi, who sanctioned the decision to publish a statement condemning Koscielny’s actions.It read: ‘Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour.ADVERTISEMENT Advertisement SPONSORED Read More More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time.’Arsenal subsequently flew to the States without their long-serving centre-half who will now train with the Under-23s while a resolution is sought.Koscielny, who has 12 months left on his current deal, wants to return to France after nine years in north London, amid interest from the likes of Lyon and Bordeuax.ESPNFC claim Arsenal want £10m for their want-away skipper, a fee which is likely to put off Koscielny’s suitors given he turns 34 in September and only recovered from a career threatening Achilles injury, which kept him out for eight months, back in December.The former Lorient defender is also said to feel his playing schedule was mismanaged following the injury he suffered during the 2018 Europa League semi final second leg against Atletico Madrid, and is dismayed at the direction in which the club is headed.Arsenal have signed only Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli so far this summer and risk losing long-term target William Saliba after Tottenham made a late attempt to hijack a deal that was on the verge of completion.A move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney also appears to have stalled, while attempts to prise Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace have failed after a £40m opening offer was rejected, while the Eagles are not interested in any of the players Arsenal were willing to offer up in part exchange.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

European Commission extends EMIR pension fund clearing exemption

first_imgIt explained its decision in terms of the difficulty and cost PSAs would incur in sourcing cash for central clearing while central counterparties work to find alternative solutions for pension funds.“Since PSAs hold neither significant amounts of cash nor highly liquid assets,” the Commission said, “imposing central-clearing requirements on them would require very far-reaching and costly changes to their business model, which could ultimately affect pensioners’ income.”The Commission had in late November flagged a possible further extension of the EMIR clearing obligation for pension funds.It also said it would consider permanently freeing them from this obligation and that it would look into this as part of a targeted review of EMIR in early 2017.In other EU regulatory news, the revised occupational pensions directive, IORP II, will come into force next Wednesday, 12 January.Member states have two years from this date to transpose the legislation, which was passed by the European Parliament on 24 November. The European Commission has extended by one year the temporary exemption from central clearing for pension schemes under EMIR.The current exception runs until August 2017 and is due to run until 16 August 2018 after the Commission adopted a Delegated Regulation amending EMIR, the regulation containing the clearing requirement for over-the-counter derivatives, on 20 December.The Delegated Regulation moves to the Council of the EU and the European Parliament for consideration.The December decision is the second time the Commission has used its power under EMIR to extend the temporary clearing exemption for pension scheme arrangements (PSAs).last_img read more

Duterte prefers careful approach on economy reopening

first_img“So mga kababayan ko ginusto ko man — ako, ako mismo personal gusto ko nang lumabas. Ayaw ko nang magpapigil. But we have to be very circumspect in reopening of the economy. Dahan-dahan lang,” Duterte said. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte prefers a more cautious approach in reopening the Philippine economy as the confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to rise. “Because if you open the entire Philippines and thousands upon thousands of new cases would happen, then we are in deep shit. Talagang mahirapan tayo. Unang-una wala tayong pera,” he added. President Rodrigo Duterte says the Philippines needs to be cautious in reviving the economy as it cannot afford a second wave of COVID-19 infections. Photo shows bustling Metro Manila dealing with limited public transportation under the general community quarantine. RAPPLER The President mentioned China, Japan, South Korea, and the United States, which reopened their economy but are now experiencing another wave of COVID-19 cases.center_img “Now what really happened in these countries was that although they opened their economy for money to come in to the government coffers, what happened is there was a spike. They were having a problem of almost a relapse, like relapse in the totality of the number. That is the hard consequence of it,” said Duterte. In his address to the public aired past midnight on Wednesday, Duterte said the country needs to be cautious in reviving its economy as it cannot afford a second wave of COVID-19 infections. Based on the latest data from the Department of Health, the country now has 47,873 confirmed COVID-19 cases along with 1,309 deaths and 12,386 recoveries./PNlast_img read more

OA students share lessons in faith

first_imgOA Students enjoy retreat at St. BonaventureOldenburg, In. — Oldenburg Academy, a Franciscan Catholic high school in southeastern Indiana, was able to provide students with the opportunity to deepen and strengthen their faith. Through the collaboration of other regional Franciscan high schools, students were given the opportunity to expand their spiritual journey. Recently, OA students joined forces with students from Roger Bacon (Cincinnati) and Padua (Parma, OH) High Schools on a retreat sponsored by St. Bonaventure University where they explored themes integral to the Franciscan intellectual tradition. It was such a positive experience for all involved that plans are underway for this to be an annual event.For the second year in a row, OA and Roger Bacon students and staff embarked on a pilgrimage to the sacred Franciscan sites in Rome and Assisi as part of an Assisi Scholars program.  The following are a few reflections from students on this life changing experience for all:Stoll, Ellie Helie, Delaney Bruns and Sam Hubert all pose in Italy.Sam Hubert ‘18- “Seeing all of the holy sites, and all of the people visiting them, really showed how unified the Catholic faith really is.”Rachel Stoll ‘18- “The pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi was a once in a lifetime experience that allowed me to see the universality of the Catholic Church and to understand what it means to be Franciscan. Learning about the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare has inspired me to be more attentive and open to God’s voice in my life.”OA Students and Roger Bacon students togetherDelaney Bruns ‘18 – “This trip was an amazing opportunity that I will forever be grateful for. A big take-a-way for me was realizing that we actually had Mass in front of St. Francis’s tomb, which made the experience even more valuable.”Oldenburg Academy will continue to partner with other regional Catholic high schools continuing to inspire students.
