Case study: financial services lending organizations

The challenge

Analysts at lenders hand-keyed monthly dealership financial statement data into Microsoft Excel or another bank-wide spread package, then conducted an analysis of each borrower’s financial position. Depending on size, the process to review an entire floorplan loan portfolio could take two months to complete, delaying lenders’ understanding of a borrower’s financial performance and potentially missing the early signs of deterioration.

The solution

Crowe Portfolio Analyzer for automotive commercial lending divisions of banks and captives:
  • Automates customer financial statement receipt on secure lender-branded portals
  • Automatically uploads customer financial statement data, eliminating time-consuming and error-prone hand-keying
  • Employs industry-specific key ratios to monitor and analyze dealer financial statements
  • Provides portfolio-wide views to quickly identify issues in floorplan loan portfolios
  • Enables each client to customize analytics
  • Aggregates dealer statement data for quarterly industry benchmark reports

The results

Automated statement upload and analysis can deliver lenders the following benefits:
  • Reduced cost to spread a statement from an average of $50 to $60 down to $8 to $15
  • Optimized staffing
  • Portfolio-wide views
  • Automated workflows
  • Access to industry information
  • Ability to provide input into a product road map
