KPI Details : Commercial Loan Underwriting Decision to Close Cycle Time

Commercial Loan Underwriting Decision to Close Cycle Time measures the number of calendar days required to close and fund a commercial loan after the underwriting decision has been made, from the time of the adjudication to the time that the loan is closed and funded. This is an important measure in understanding the performance of Loan Support Employees in coordinating origination efforts with loan officers and how this correlates with customer expectations. Extended cycle times can occur due to multiple, redundant or low value touch points within the process, inconsistent use of process guides or training materials, and unclear communication between loan support, loan officers and borrowers.

KPI Calculation Instructions Commercial Loan Underwriting Decision to Close Cycle Time?
