Risk Rating & Financial Analysis

Akouba’s platform collects and aggregates all of the data the bank needs to decision a loan, then compares that data to the bank’s unique credit policy and risk rating metrics. Banks retain total control over their risk profile. The data is presented in a way that enables the underwriting team to quickly assess credit worthiness. The value of the data does not stop there. The data is further used by the banker to gain valuable insights into the business, enabling the banker to ask great questions and uncover more opportunities to help the client beyond the loan request. This gives bankers a huge competitive advantage in the marketplace, increases banker productivity and grows revenue for the bank.

Transfer Data to LaserPro

All the information that lives in the Akouba platform can be transferred to LaserPro with one click.

Automated Document Management

There is one central location where all documents live and can be referenced in any calculations that are made by the platform or any of your analysts. Documents can be systematically requested and uploaded through our portal. The technology automatically sends out requests for documentation and continues to do so until the required information has been collected.
