I think this solution is a fantastic idea. Our OS has software and has approached us to use their "retail" module. Does anyone know if Lifestyles is doing more than software?

Great Question! Software, in itself, is not the challenging part of lifestyle lending...finding the right company with the expertise in this lending arena is. Because Lifestyle Lending Solutions is the first company of its kind, it has established a track record and important knowledge base with working side alongside medical and retail providers.

Many credit unions have contacted us from this article and have had similar questions. I thought it worth mentioning all the benefits and features that come with working with Lifestyle Lending Solutions. LLS Provides: Software: - Automated Underwriting - Document prep for doctors upon approval - Automatic Approvals - Robust reporting suite - Easy Fax Funding (Imaging) - Find a Provider” Program viewable from lender’s website Services: - Consult credit unions on their lifestyle lending, teach and train loan officers - Train and support all medical and retail providers - Contract the providers, saving the credit union time and money with their own contracts - Offer a network of credit unions and providers. If a credit union uses a software solution, they must develop their own market and that market is limited in growth when only 1 lender is available. (maybe we could highlight how our solution provides the strength of multiple lenders instead of letting them derive that 1 lender is weak. Just a thought, not a for sure) - Provide all marketing materials to providers - Provide our “find a doctor” ( ) program, which is available for credit unions to put on their website as a tool for their members to seek out doctors that offer their financing. - We allow for patients to also apply from home through our patient portal in addition to the traditional was which the provider submits to the credit union. - Offer direct mailing and marketing to the providers in an area on behalf of the credit union. Simply put, we will help your credit union build a successful lifestyle lending program without the hassle of trial and error. Let us know how we can help you!
