Finastra: Expediting Small Business Relief

With the recent passing of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, the Paycheck Protection Program has been flooded with applications. This program is critical for small business owners struggling to pay salaries, rent and other costs of doing business during the pandemic. To help companies claim their loans from the $350 billion disbursement, Finastra has launched a self-service application tool. This tool provides automated transmission to the Small Business Administration’s E-Tran portal for its customer – banks and credit unions.

Finastra’s new solution enables small business owners to streamline and expedite the loan documentation and closing process through their financial institutions, helping to get these funds into their hands as quickly as possible. With new information from the government announced almost every day, Finastra is continuously updating its website with product and legislative changes to keep its customers updated with essential information for borrowers.
