Why should Commercial Loan Origination Cycle Time be measured?

Commercial Loan Origination Cycle Time measures the number of calendar days required to close and fund commercial loans, from the time that the commercial loan application is received from potential borrower to when the commercial loan is closed and funded. This metric is crucial in comparing the end-to-end new commercial loan origination process and performance against customer expectations. Extended cycle times can occur due to complex application and underwriting processes, unclear application requirements for borrowers, multiple follow-ups for additional information, increased error rates due to multiple touch points per application, and inconsistent use of training materials during commercial loan processing.
