Thank you for 22 years!

We formed Suntell, on this day in August of 1996, with an idea to improve commercial lending processes and risk management for community financial institutions. We had to grind it in those first few years for daily survival!

Looking back to how we got to where we are 22 years later, I feel most fortunate and grateful for the tremendous employees and their talents combined with their hard work that helped us achieve and realize the great product we have today in the Square 1 Credit Suite. Equally important to our success were the customers that took a chance on a fledgling start up and all those that followed who could see our vision for transforming commercial and agricultural lending.

It truly has been a great ride and I am looking forward to many more!

Thank you!

How does a loan origination system work?

An LOS is defined as a system that automates and manages the end-to-end steps in the loan process – from the application, through underwriting, approval, documentation, pricing, funding, and administration.

What is the difference between loan origination and underwriting?

A loan officer is someone who works for a bank or credit union or other financial institution and offers loans to borrowers, while an underwriter is someone who analyzes documents from potential borrowers to determine if they are eligible for a loan.

What are the benefits of loan origination software?

By now, lenders are well versed in the benefits of a digital loan origination system, such as: Providing borrowers with easy, streamlined, and digital applications. Providing bankers with automating spreading and financial analysis tools.
