Southtech assists financial institutions in writing off bad loans using Robotic Process Automation
2 July, 2020
Yearend closing is the time when financial institutions look towards cleaning up their balance sheets by taking their bad loans off their loan portfolio for financial prudence and compliance with regulatory authorities.
Normally, a lender is allowed to set-off bad loans against any deposit accounts or proceeds from collaterals. The process of writing off of loans therefore, when carried out one by one, can be quite a laborious and time consuming activity. First the user has to check whether there is any legal case associated with the loan, in which case, it cannot be touched, whether there is any account balances that can be set off against the bad loan, do the accounting vouchers to transfer balances, etc.
Southtech has now introduced Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to overcome this labor intensive process for its clients. RPA is a business process automation technology using software robotics to carry out a series of manual activities that a human would do by mimicking those same human activities, but only more accurately. Using this technology, Southtech has helped its clients identify loans that can be written-off against a set criteria and adjust 4,000+ loans against deposit accounts and written off 3,500+ loans on June 2020 year-end closing, saving approximately 1,000 man hours of the clients’ work. i.e., about 140 man-days.
