Fintech infrastructure powered over 500,000 PPP applications
June 2, 2020, New York, NY – Ocrolus, a leading fintech infrastructure company that transforms documents into actionable data with over 99% accuracy, today announced the release of its PPP Loan Forgiveness Documentation solution. Ocrolus PPP automates the classification and extraction of data from documents required to convert SBA Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans into forgivable grants.
Since the initial CARES program launched in March, Ocrolus’ cloud-based solution has been deployed by numerous lenders to process over 500K PPP applications. Ocrolus captures and digitizes payroll reports, bank statements, tax forms and other documents to substantiate and calculate PPP loan requests. As these loans are now becoming eligible for conversion to forgivable grants, originating lenders are facing the administrative burden of calculating payroll, utility, rent and mortgage payments by each borrower. Additionally, lenders need to document each calculation and provide best efforts to verify that the information is correct.
“We’ve worked hand-in-hand with lenders to optimize Ocrolus’ PPP offering to streamline lenders’ loan application and forgiveness programs. To date, we’ve processed over four million financial documents related to PPP loan applications,” explained Douglas Melchior, Ocrolus’ Vice President of Product. “For grant conversions, we have added multiple analytics and reporting to validate the values in borrower declarations for PPP forgiveness are accurate and auditable.”
The Ocrolus solution also produces a PPP Compliance Report, providing Loan Officers with an at-a-glance snapshot of supporting documentation. The report also provides basic analytics to indicate if the borrower has met the 75% payroll requirement.
As with the PPP loan origination program, Ocrolus is able to quickly on-board lenders with a direct API integration into existing loan origination and servicing programs. For example, Ocrolus worked with one fintech lender to set up their loan application program and accelerate hundreds of thousands of loan applications during the second tranche of PPP funding in less than 10 days.
