LAPS: MODULES IN BRIEF

Agreement Documentation checking, security checking for receipt of PDC, Sanction Amount and etc are included as well.

 

Application Form For Loans
The application form captures all the details typically collected regarding the loan product, interest rate, amount requested and other items such as the duration of the loan, principal loan amount, and the financial standards against which the borrowers standing will be compared.

 

Risk Assessment
This module is designed to capture the required financial data in detail of current assets, fixed assets, current liabilities and long-term liabilities to enable the system to perform a thorough risk analysis of the borrower against preset ratios and deliver to the reviewer a comprehensive picture, which leads to a well-informed decision.

 

Loan Pricing
The loan pricing module provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of each loan. LAPS will recommend pricing based on the lender's management policies for each loan type or classification. The system presents a comprehensive analysis of cost and revenue components, such as: Minimum Return, Cost of Borrowing, Borrower Risk Rating, Lending Personnel Cost, Overhead Cost, Debt Recovery Losses and Cost of Unused Funds. All these components are used to make a timely and informed decision for pricing Commercial Loans. Interest rates can be determined either manually or with the pricing module.

 

Work Flow
The most critical feature of LAPS is its Workflow management tool, which allows an application to be initiated, routed to the appropriate staff in a pre-defined sequence, processed, tracked, and eventually completed and filed. This module facilitates electronic processing of the loan application between several "work flow points" which can be set up to meet the unique needs of every organization depending on their size, structure and review/approval methodology. The system assures that there are no delays in the processing of the loan. Efficiency reports can be generated to reveal any recurring delays at specific "flow points" so that corrective action can be taken.

 

Document Archiving/Management
This module gives lending institutions the ability to digitally capture and store various documents that may be required as part of the loan package. It becomes easier to transfer the loan package to the next point in the process without the need for stacks of paper work to accompany the application.

 

Loan Committee
The Loan Committee Module can efficiently control information flow to decision makers for loan approvals. Loan Committee members can be in different locations, but still be able to view all or any part of the complete loan documentation. This module will allow the lender to assign multiple committees based on loan amount or loan classification.

 

Monitoring
This module uses the amortization schedule of the loan and compares it to actual remittances. It is also designed to generate alerts in the event a payment is not made on time or for the appropriate amount.

 

Reports
One very valuable feature of LAPS is the number and variety of data and reports that can be generated for review and analysis. From product popularity and processing efficiency, to application status, there are large numbers of reports available for each level of the organization. These reports enable different types of analysis for strategic management and presentation of data for review by senior management.
