Lending Approval Rates at Big Banks, Institutional Lenders Continue to Surge, According to February 2015 Biz2Credit Small Business Lending Index


New York, NY (PRWEB) March 16, 2015

Small business loan approval rates at big banks and institutional lenders continue to improve, attaining new post-recession highs in February 2015, according to the Biz2Credit Small Business Lending Index, the monthly analysis of 1,000 loan applications on Biz2Credit.com.

Big banks ($ 10 billion+ in assets) approved 21.5% of small business loan requests in February 2015, up from 21.3% in January. Further, loan approval rates at big banks have increased consistently for 10 out of the last 11 months, and a year-to-year comparison shows that they have increased by 12.5%.

“Big banks are starting to grant more conventional loans. This allows them to keep fixed loan expenses down compared to SBA-backed loans, which are not primarily being done at smaller banks,” explained Biz2Credit CEO Rohit Arora, who oversaw the research. “The investment in digitization at big banks has helped expedite the small business loan approval process.”

Meanwhile, institutional lenders granted 60.7% of funding requests by small business owners in February, an increase from 60.5% in January 2015. Approval rates by institutional lenders have increased each month ever since Biz2Credit began monitoring this category of lenders one year ago.

“Institutional lenders are willing to offer more loans that are financially appealing to small business owners,” Arora said. “The high approval rate in this category of lenders is a reflection of their strong investment in technology advancements, which enables them to quickly assess the risk of default. Thus, they are incredibly efficient; only a miniscule 0.77 percent of loans made by institutional lenders on our platform have defaulted.”

For the fourth consecutive month, small banks denied more than half of their loan requests to small business owners, as lending approval rates at small banks remained stagnant at 49.6% in February. After reaching an all-time Index high in May 2014, lending approval rates at small banks have gradually declined.

“Smaller banks are better at offering SBA loans, but those loans take time to process. Creditworthy customers who seek quick funding are turning to other types of funding that take less time to process,” said Arora. “This leaves smaller banks with less attractive borrowers than they had a year ago and explains why approval percentages are dropping.”

Approval rates at alternative lenders — merchant cash advance companies, factors, and other non-bank institutions – dropped for the 13th consecutive month to 61.4% in February, from 61.6% in January. Their drop has coincided with the emergence of institutional lenders.

“Alternative lenders have been impacted most by the emergence of institutional players. As the economy continues to improve, small businesses with good credit standing don’t have to borrow money at high interest rates often associated with alternative lenders,” Arora explained. “Small business owners were often obligated to pay high interest rates during the ‘credit crunch’ when they were desperate for money. However, this is no longer the case.”

Credit unions granted 43.3% of loan applications in January, a slight increase from the record low approval rate of 43.2% in January 2015. However, they are still struggling to increase their presence in the small business finance marketplace.

Server Monitoring Process

Network monitoring is the most important part of the system administrator’s or IT manager’s work. The larger the company is, the more employees work there, the more clients are served by this organization, the more vital the server monitoring process is. It is worth to mention that nowadays there are a lot of companies with rather small and simple networks where servers are also used and need to be monitored.

The server equipment is to operate round the clock 7 days in a week all the year.  It is not recommended to stop the server operation because this can lead to a company’s workflow interruption and the data loss. But computers, servers, and other network devices cannot work for ever, they can even fail sometimes. That is why the system administrator has to monitor servers’ operation constantly. This process includes monitoring the state of services, processes, applications, databases, etc.

What is “monitoring”? First of all, let’s give the definition.

Monitoring is the regular observation and recording of activities taking place in the object or the process, which gives an opportunity to evaluate effectively the influence of different external and internal factors; watching them during their operation and developing. The monitoring results allow improving the control of objects and processes.

What does the server monitoring process give us?

1. The system administrator or IT manager is able to detect the server failure just after the moment it has occurred.  In this case, employees will not complain that important services on the server are unavailable, or that it is not possible to connect to the database, etc. The server monitoring process minimizes the time of the system administrator’s reaction to the particular events, and the system downtime. All this increases the efficiency of the company’s operation on the whole.

2. The system administrator is able to evaluate the state of IT infrastructure on the whole or its particular parts in details with one glance.

 3. If the failure has been detected, the server monitoring program helps to define its cause, and what was just a consequence. This also minimizes the failure recovering time. Besides, the server monitoring process allows discovering the current server problems, and thus anticipating and preventing possible breakdowns.

The server monitoring software, that is available on the market today, makes the server monitoring process more automated and less expensive. A network monitoring program’s operation does not require any system administrator’s intervention. He just has to set up the particular checks, their periodicity, and notifications that will take place if failures are detected. He can also configure the program’s response on particular events. These may include: displaying a message, sending an e-mail message, running external programs, writing a record to log, sending SMS to a mobile phone, restarting/shutting down a service, a server, or a workstation.  The server monitoring process will be performed round the clock 7 days a week, which human is not able to do physically. This means, that the organization’s information system will always be under constant observation and control.

Servers are kind of organization’s “brain”. They are the warehouses of the important data; they provide the “intellectual” operation of the company and the connection between all its parts, uniting them in one “organism”. If the server stops working, all the company’s operation can stop as well. A server monitor allows avoiding this, letting the system administrator detect and repair failures as soon as possible. The server and the whole network monitoring program’s task is to make this process less expensive and more efficient thanks to the great number of server monitoring checks and its continual operation.
