(PRWEB) April 27, 2005
Cash Now Corporation (CHNW), a pioneer and continuing leader in the payday loan and check-cashing industry, today announced it has installed a new Web-based booking engine that will assure faster-than-ever service for Cash Now customers while opening the possibility of more profits for Cash Now Licensees.
The system operates in real time ÂbookingÂ of payday loans, similar to web based travel agencies which book air travel in real time and issue commitments instantly.
ÂThis is another example of our leadership in the payday loan and check-cashing industry,Â said Andrea Zecevic, Cash Now President. ÂWe offer the best technology, and we keep making it better. This new booking engine is faster and more robust. In the end what it means is happier customers and increased opportunity for revenues for Cash Now Licensees.Â
The new system starts by asking customers seven mandatory questions and calling into the Cash Now database. It then returns the Cash Now database results and, based upon the customerÂs replies together with the preliminary Cash Now credit score, a conditional loan commitment is issued. Applications are also time-stamped, and customers are advised that their approval is valid for the next 10 minutes, providing impetus for a quick decision. The booking engine then handles the rest of the transaction with the same speed and thoroughness, including banking information requests, contacting sub-prime reporting agencies, prompting customers to submit all the data needed to complete the transaction and notifying credit agencies that the loan is being issued by Cash Now. ItÂs all automatic which enables Cash Now Licensees to process more loans in a shorter period of time while using less manpower.
ÂThe speed and automation can dramatically increase conversion rates for Cash Now Licensees,Â said Zecevic, Âand it eliminates manual underwriting, which allows the staff to focus on verification Â making sure customers work where they claim to work and bank where they claim to bank. What this amounts to is a series of spot-checks by Licensees, which is very important to their financial well-being.Â
The basic booking engine can process up to 100 loans a day - ideal for smaller operations. For a licensee looking for a robust call center operation, the ultimate answer is Cash NowÂs Enterprise Solution with a fully integrated booking engine. The Enterprise solution with the booking engine can process over 1000 loan requests a day.
