Co-operative Banks have always been at the heart of the economy but often face significant challenges. Stringent government regulations, the constant pressure to scale up business and reduce NPAs, a change and risk-averse mindset, as well as the legacy systems and processes hold back the speed of operations and the bank’s potential efficiency.

Also, with limited financial resources, localized operations, few products and small client bases, Co-operative banks haven’t explored the benefits of embracing future-ready technologies that can help address all the pain-points such as manual and fragmented work flows, slow on-boarding and credit decisioning etc. to start outperforming the competition and increasing their profitability.

Private sector banks are already riding the digital transformation wave and reaping its benefits. Co-operative banks can play a significant role in rural financial inclusion if they take advantage of the disruptive technologies.

Besides enabling faster services, the decision to bring technology into play will open up possibilities of providing new, cost-effective banking products and services with an expanded portfolio.

Digital and Automation are the new buzz words

Digital data sources are increasingly being used to augment applicant data for better and quicker decisions. Operational automation has proved to greatly enhance the application processing throughput. With the use of eligibility grids, deviation matrices, evaluation rules, scorecards and data integrations extensively, co-operative banks can aim to reach faster and better credit-offtake decisioning on loans seamlessly.
