High Stakes Market with Complex Processes

Auto refinance is a high stakes market as auto loan balances continue a six-year upward trend, growing by $23 billion in the second quarter of 2017 alone, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
AutoApprove wanted to be the firm people turned to first when exploring a refinance. Several problems appeared while managing their CRM. It required the agents to interact with multiple third-party applications/websites.
Key Areas To Remedy:
Lead Information Access & Management
CRM & Communication Integrations
Document Management & Profile Development
Preferred Lending Partner Management

Build A Modern Repossession Engine

The fundamental process needed agents to enter information from the CRM to make a request manually; once the information was available, they then had to update it in the CRM manually. Agents also had to manually create PDF documents from templates and manage data external data (outside the CRM) in Excel files.
Managers also were tracking & managing reports in Excel outside the CRM. Automating the system would significantly accelerate the approval process while reducing the risk inherent in all manual processes.

The AutoApprove Engine

Our loan and vehicle refinancing volume depends on the number of lenders in our system. To make onboarding more lenders easier, we worked with TechFabric to develop the 'Approve Engine' application. This app seamlessly integrates with third-party systems like Lending Tree, Equifax, and DocuSign, streamlining the approval process. Now, our system can scale and integrate with as many third parties as needed, allowing AutoApprove to expand rapidly.
Solution - Scalability

Power BI To Future-Proofed For Scale Rescue

The Approve Engine was architected and designed with an eye to “future-proofing” the application and was built using a Microservices Architecture on the Microsoft Azure Cloud with a No-SQL Database allowing the application to scale up with AutoApprove’s business needs without risk of performance issues regardless of the number of agents using the system or increased loan volume.

Making The Best Refi Match

To automate this process, TechFabric implemented a rules-based auto-response, driven by lender and rate. TechFabric needed to deliver to the AutoApprove loan consultants the criteria and information from the lender ecosystem that represented the best financing solutions for the customer that would reduce their payment or interest rate or both.
The system automatically responds to a lead, displaying for the AutoApprove loan consultant the rate or loan amount for which the customer or lead is eligible. The newly automated system manages the contracts and helps the agent walk the customers through the whole lifecycle process -- automating the loan application and documentation process and the purchase of warranties and other ancillary products.
