Earning auto loans at your credit union is important. It’s a primary role of your lending team, whether you focus solely on direct loans or also work with dealers through an indirect channel. And to maintain revenues, it gets substantial resources across the institution.
What about all the members who already have auto loans, but didn’t get them from your credit union? You know many can save money by refinancing, helping you fulfill the mission of financial empowerment while driving growth. So let’s move those loans over!
Sorry, what? There’s a lot involved? And your credit union doesn’t have the resources to do it alone? To simplify life for your loan team and members, a number of vendors help with the refinancing process through a strategy called “recapture”.
Recapture Goes Beyond Mail
Today’s leading recapture platforms are a far cry from the “pick some criteria and mail out the pre-approvals” approaches you may expect. With most members using their phones as the primary means of interaction, paper just won’t cut it. And people want the process to be fast.
We’re not just talking about your members there. A recapture system which is easy for your staff to operate will enhance productivity and satisfaction. A team who believes in and loves your products plays a larger role in their success.
