The Challenge

At the time we were engaged by NDB, monitoring customer covenant fulfillment levels was a manual process that invoked a team of personnel (split between head office and regional offices) reviewing a small sample of the loan book each month to test compliance rates. This was a laborious task managed through spreadsheets and was highly prone to error. Additionally, communication and alerts on this process were done through staff members emailing each other schedules and spreadsheets, creating a maze of information that was difficult to manage.

The bank wanted a solution that removed human error, and created transparency from a control and risk management perspective.

The Solution

An RPA solution that offered minimal human interference and automated workflow that was error free, provided accurate data and pipelined data-points from this process to other credit risk management areas.

With our RPA solution, the bank could re-allocate resources more effectively to areas that required critical judgment and decision making. Our RPA solution had minimal load on the bank’s existing FT infrastructure and fitted perfectly into its other technology platforms and risk management protocols.

By using RPA we were able to create a highly scalable and transparent process that reviewed the entire loan book every month (not just a small sample) with minimal human interference.
