Their second, visibility across their loan pipeline. 

"We were shooting for 21 days and we’ve gone past that goal - these are all with brand new users, the FileInvite system speaks to how easy it is to get someone up and running in the system and train them so that is why we run with FileInvite, it’s incredibly easy to understand not only for internal employees but the borrower as well.

A Seamless Digital Experience 

After an initial discovery meeting with the FileInvite Enterprise team a workflow analysis and proof of concept detailed the productivity gains that could be accomplished. A system to eradicate the spreadsheets used for tracking documents and a way to gain visibility over their loan pipeline. 

Client feedback was that they were impressed with the intuitive client portals. The seamless digital experience for their customers, enabling them to ditch the struggle of email attachments and complete forms online rather than printing, scanning and completing by hand.  

As FileInvite is a cloud based application it could be deployed quickly with minimal setup required.

Scaling the use of FileInvite, Fundera were able to rapidly onboard the entire sales and processing team. Using master templates, they ensured everyone has the latest contracts, updated conditions and any regulatory requirements covered.   

Empowering Clients, Enhancing Efficiency: Achievements and Outcomes


The integrated process resulted in a tight loop from cashflow pass to full packaging of documents for every application. The central dashboard gave transparency over the status of every application and where each client was at with providing their documents, giving insights for forecasting and targets.

With a new client portal created in seconds, clients now receive their own individual space to upload and complete their application.
