Commercial lenders use Able to quickly collect information from borrowers, streamline the loan process, and book loans faster.

The commercial lending process is still very document-driven; while many documents have moved online, the overall market is still using a process developed years ago. Able is helping to change that equation by streamlining the lending process.

By using Able, lenders can cut down on mistakes and repetitive tasks and save time on the overall process, increasing the time to yes.

Diego and I talk about Able’s technology, how AI can help automate aspects of a commercial loan, the impact Able can have on the bottom line, Diego’s time in the Army, raising capital, and much more.
