Startups providing digital solutions to NBFCs to fight the pandemic
User authentication has always been one of the biggest hassles for any lending organisation, particularly NBFCs owing to the kind of consumers they deal in majorly. Especially during the unprecedented times we find ourselves in, it has become almost impossible to verify user details through physical contacting. Rising to the challenge, certain new-age companies are providing data driven solutions to verify & authenticate consumer credentials for the lenders. Such solutions come as a breath of fresh air for the industry as they are now able to provide convenient, trust-worthy and ready solutions for the screening process maintaining social distancing norms.
Adopting technological innovations across value chains will aid optimisation of resources and processes, reduce turnaround time, facilitate intuitive and automated decision making and ensure accessibility of credit/loans for customers at rates tailored to their socio-economic profile. This would give NBFCs a great leverage over traditional banking systems and drive maximum possible growth.
Some of these companies are:
