With thinner margins, companies seek to provide differentiated customer offerings while ensuring their operations are at their peak efficiencies. As per Gartner, by 2030, 80% of heritage financial services firms will go out of business, become commoditized or exist only formally but not compete effectively. These firms would struggle for relevance as global digital platforms, Fintech companies, and other nontraditional players gain greater market share, using technology to change the economics and business models of the industry.
So, it is vital for companies to up their tech play and be 100% sure that they are right the first time – as we don’t have time to make mistakes now. Document automation can simplify complex paper-based processes through which the data can be better managed and, most importantly, cut down on TAT and costs. Let’s examine how some mortgage peers have benefited through OCR or IDP solutions.
Manual to OCR/IDP
OCR to IDP
How DocVu.AI – an IDP, can help
Most of the companies which used to take over 45 minutes to process a loan package now process applications in less than 5 mins.
DocVu.AI helps to classify documents accurately and extract relevant data in record times. The workflow engine makes it highly flexible and easy to integrate seamlessly into the lender’s tech ecosystem.
Costs saved in operations
Auto-analysis with the human in the loop improved operational efficiencies saving over 50% of costs. Lenders upgrading to an intelligent document processing solution has seen better cost savings.
Highly automated operations reduce manual labor and improve TAT, thereby saving substantial loan processing costs. Improved stickiness can improve the topline in the long run.
On average, lenders achieved ROI within 5 months, making the case to upgrade to OCR/IDP extremely attractive.
DocVu.AI has ready integrations with leading LOS tech providers. The solution has a pre-configured mortgage library for over 2000 fields across 2000+ mortgage documents.
Man hours saved per month
Due to reduced manual processing, lenders reported a substantial decrease in man hours for operational processes.

Reduction in manual data entry
Reduced manual data entry brings more certainty and scalability and builds a foundation for a more sustainable business process.
DocVu.AI can reduce over 90% of manual tasks with automated document processing. The API-based integrators provide reliable and secure interconnections with third-party systems to digitize further manually-driven processes such as appraisals, valuations, QC audits, etc.
Document indexing and extraction Accuracy
OCR’s accuracy is lesser than IDP as the latter can process templateless documents with unstructured data through AI-powered tools.
DocVu.AI leverages intelligent automation powered by computer vision, noise elimination from images, and template-less processing that extracts accurate data quickly, achieving over 99.5% accuracy.
When a lender processes over 500-page mortgage packages manually, vital data are likely to be missed. It is an outdated and inefficient process with no certainty over operations. Manual processing leads to too many back-and-forth documents with the customers, thereby being unable to turn around closures within stipulated times. Apart from the above business benefits, there are many other advantages, such as more flexible operations, more scalable operations, and more interconnected technologies with a better propensity to partner with the digital ecosystem and be better prepared to pre-close and post-close QC audits.
