Reports and dashboards in software for lending business lighten the load for analytics, financial officers, and managers in banks and non-banking organizations. They highlight numbers and demonstrate dynamics anytime and anywhere.

The main advantage of automatic dashboards is that no more need to wait for traditional monthly reports. For example, with HES Lending software users leverage financial automation and visualization tools and move to a daily reporting cycle. Traditional and alternative lenders we work with usually ask about our predefined set of reports and add their own ones.

  4. Automatic reporting enables analysts to spend more time searching for ways to reduce costs and grow profits and less time on data preparation in spreadsheets.  

In between reporting periods, it is important to have access to quick reports that make transform tons of data into an easy-to-read summary.

Using Dashboard Reports to Keep Lending Business on Track

Internal statistics and reports tend to visualize data the way that is relevant for management. In financial services the requirements are wider, thus a modified version of the dashboard report in lending is required. 

What is relevant depends on the type of lending and type of customers, business operations, sources of collateral. 

Which KPIs Lenders Want to Have at Hand? 

However, here are four pairs of indicators most lenders would like to include in dashboards:

  1. The visualization of their revenues and gross margin
  2. The current ratio of assets and liabilities
  3. Interest coverage ratio and interest expense.
  4. Total asset turnover and total loan production

In addition, lenders tend to measure:

  1. Closing cycle time
  2. Loan yield spread
  3. Loan origination unit cost
  4. Application pull-through rate, and more. 

The analysis of these parameters and their dynamics is important in benchmarking and also helps lenders to timely identify trends that need involvement and corrective actions. 

Traditional and alternative lenders may have different KPIs, so do lenders working in different industries: auto loans, mortgage lending, commercial, and consumer lending. 

The main tasks of a lending software developer are to offer flexibility, find the proper solutions for gathering statistics and implement custom reports and dashboards. At the stage of business analysis, HES FinTech works on the back-office module containing statistics and reports. The team becomes a proactive technology partner: we consider customer’s expectations, demonstrate templates and capabilities, mention development costs.
