    KMS Solutions Loans on Phone

Over 70% of FIs have adopted or are in the process of adopting digital loan origination methods for personal loans.

    With the global digital lending platform market growing at a CAGR of 14.3% from 2023 to 2032 and expected to reach $46.4B by 2032, online mobile loans have been a buzzword for banks over the past few years.

    In this article, we will delve into factors driving changes in the lending-centric consumer financial services landscape and what to look for in a mobile lending solution in case you want to implement the technology in the operations. 

    Primary drivers of growth in mobile lending

    Digitally savvy Millennials & Gen Z

    The emergence of tech-savvy Millennials and Generation Z consumers in the financial markets has triggered a significant transformation in consumer ideologies and behaviors. These cohorts prioritize "instant gratification" and heavily rely on digital conveniences like online food delivery, ride-hailing services, and e-commerce for their essential needs.

    Hence, they expect the same speed and convenience in their financial management, demanding remote and frictionless loan processes on digital and mobile devices. 

    Consequently, to remain competitive and attract these demographics, there is a pressing need for short and long-term financial products tailored to their preferences and behaviors.

    Data collection & analytics

    With mobile lending, lenders now have the capability to thoroughly analyze users' spending patterns and repayment histories with remarkable precision. Leveraging these extensive datasets, the financial sector can unlock substantial value: 

    • Creating additional revenue channels through data-informed offers and suggestions.
    • Providing customers with improved services and heightened security measures, like card fraud detection and more
    • Effectively assessing lending risks by gauging repayment probabilities.
    • Utilizing Machine Learning methodologies to match relevant cardholders with suitable merchants.
    • Delivering market intelligence to clients while bolstering engagement and fostering trust
    • Offering highly flexible terms and competitive interest rates 

    The need to reduce costs & enhance operational efficiency

    With end-to-end automation of loan processes, from loan application, credit scoring, loan disbursement, repayment and collection, mobile loan online empowers lenders to reduce the loan processing and approval time. As employees spend less time on in-branch loan applications, banks can deduct paper-based costs, resulting in lower overhead. Meanwhile, you will have more time to find new borrowers and loan opportunities which will lead to increased profit margins.
