Eliminate the tedious process of building term sheets or commitment letters from scratch as LoanVantage® can merge in relevant fields and allow the user to complete the document in Microsoft Word® then save the completed document back into LoanVantage®.

Task Flow

Task Flow is a key component of LoanVantage® as it supports consistency in the tasks and requirements, underwriting and management of various loan activities. Using various selection criteria, you determine what activities and information are required and in what order for each process (New loan request, CRE New Loan Request, Loan Review, etc). Activities are bundled into tasks and as each are closed the next tasks are opened and notice sent to the responsible party. Managers and lenders can see the status of each file at a glance.

In LoanVantage, the Task Flow is a simple checklist of tasks and activities that the users of LoanVantage carry out to process loans and complete their work. Many different checklists can be created and combined in order to accommodate the processes that have already been established at your institution.

Work Queues combine with Task Flow to assist teams or individual users to organize and track their specific activities. When a user signs on to LoanVantage® they are automatically taken to their work queue which enables them to begin (or to continue) working on their most critical priorities and to keep abreast of any new activities that have been assigned to them.

  • Identify and Manage Required Tasks using powerful Business Rules, Workflow and Work Queues
  • Eliminate loan checklists using business rules
  • Non-technical people manage the configuration of loan products, business rules, and required documents

User Dashboard

Work Queues are displayed on the portal and provide LoanVantage users with the ability to view subsets of Loans, Activities, and Exceptions that meet certain criteria. Work Queues provide users with a customized “View” of their relevant data. Work Queues are built using the query builder, which is robust and allows for the creation of very specific queues. These queues can be assigned to individual users or assigned to specific teams. When your users sign into LoanVantage, the queue will display on the main Portal screen.


Customized Page Layouts

The Custom Page View functionality allows you to customize the way that the fields behave on user screens based upon the evaluation of a business rule. This allows you to create unique views for different situations and different types of loan files. Multiple template views can be created for each type of screen (Facility, Customer, Collateral, Lead, AQR, Loan Request, WAM, Review, Relationship, and Rate Schedule.)


  • View by role (loan officer vs credit analyst vs. loan operations)
  • View by loan type (CRE vs. Line of Credit)
  • View by Facility type (Note vs. Commitment)

Robust Business Rules

LoanVantage® Business Rules Engineallows for dynamic customization of tasks and activities. Driven by user defined variables which could include Loan Type, Collateral and other key deal identifiers, Tasks and Processes are streamlined to correspond to the specific Loan Request.

Business Rules consist of a set of conditions that need to be met in order for another process to be set in motion or to determine which direction that process takes.


Business rules are used to drive many functions in LoanVantage.



Leads and Opportunity Tracking

LoanVantage supports identification of referrals for potential new business, movement of referral to bona fide opportunities, gathering of data required to perform due diligence, confirm forward progress, and begin the process of building the deal. Identifying and tracking new business opportunities is easy and you can work with either new or existing customers or a combination of both on any new deal. Once all parties are identified, you can begin structuring the deal and identifying initial terms.

Our Sales Pipeline Tracking supports identification of the status of all potential deals and the activities in process for each. Reporting can include current status and activity by Officer, Branch, Region, and includes close percentages and potential funding requirements.

Negative covenants would include any action (or lack of action) that would diminish or devalue the property or asset.

Covenant reporting and tracking includes the specification of each covenant item required, a due date for the provision (if applicable), and a methodology to indicate satisfaction of the covenant item for the reporting period. A covenant breach will be quickly and easily noticeable.

LoanVantage enables your bank to easily monitor financial and non-financial covenants. Financial covenants reflect your institution’s standards for the financial strength and performance of your borrowers and serve as protections for both your institution and for the borrower.

LoanVantage® will utilize your risk model to deliver the decisioning that you require and ensure that results are accounted for and retained in history.

Electronic Approvals

The loan presentation may be electronically routed for approvals based upon variables including the amount of the loan, the type of loan, total relationship exposure, etc. Or a combination of factors based upon flexible business rules your bank sets up and manages.

Workflows are also available for the loan approval process, enabling the Bank to define the routing process for the loan package, capturing the electronic signatures, and forwarding the package to the next approval stage.
