The renting business is much like lending. In place of cash, it is furniture or goods that are being lent. Therefore, many underlying elements of both businesses are similar, namely underwriting and risk assessment.
Over the last few years, the renting industry has gained a prominent place in the Indian consumership. The furniture rental market in India alone is expected to reach more than $20 Bn by 2024 with tier 2 and 3 cities rising as potential markets.
RentoMojo is India’s leading rental platform that rents out furniture, appliances, electronics, and more. Today, RentoMojo serves more than 100,000 live orders in a month in 16 cities across India, such as Mumbai, NCR, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai. RentoMojo attracts an entire generation of young professionals to their platform who do not want the baggage of ownership.
Renting is a tricky business. It faces the challenge of identifying rent-worthy customers. There is always a risk of defaulted payments or products not being returned/damaged. This is where risk assessment and underwriting comes into play.
Risk assessment and underwriting helps businesses verify creditworthy customers and lend them money. In the case of RentoMojo, lend customers furniture and appliances.
The manual assessment process is generally known to be error-prone & time-consuming. Customers complained that the journey was not seamless and friendly. This subjected RentoMojo to a 20% drop-off during the onboarding phase. The manual processing of documents also caused many man hours to be used up to process documents. This caused an increase in their operational costs.
In a nutshell, RentoMojo risked the following -
Loss of potential customers - Not being able to assess their consumers quickly led to loss of potential customers.
High Operational Costs - Manual processing of bank statements caused an increase in costs.
It was clear to the RentoMojo team that automating the entire risk assessment process would benefit its customers, as well as the company itself. The problem with drop-offs, operational costs, and human errors, could be solved in one go.
FinBox BankConnect enabled users to share their statements with RentoMojo through netbanking or PDF Upload and let RentoMojo analyse bank statements.
While RentoMojo considered many options to find the best suited solution to their problem, they ultimately chose FinBox BankConnect. Here’s why.
FinBox BankConnect works on multiple platforms (Android, web-app, iOS) and is easily customisable.
With FinBox’s advanced risk intelligence suite, RentoMojo was able to identify rentworthy customers, detect fraudulent applications, and control timely payments and reduce the damage to their furniture.
FinBox BankConnect was significantly more economical and delivered a high ROI than other players in the market.
RentoMojo automated the entire onboarding journey and started accepting bank statements via FinBox BankConnect. As a result of the automation, RentoMojo observed:
RentoMojo successfully improved its NPS by 70%, which led to its Playstore rating increasing to 4.4 from the previous 3.6. The company saw a 50% reduction in the number of queries since the whole risk assessment process was automated.
Since RentoMojo was no longer manually processing bank statements, RentoMojo provided its customers with a superior user experience. A single bank statement via Netbanking login or PDF upload was all it took, ensuring the process completion in minutes. The lower risk assessment TAT resulted in about 83% of the rental orders to be processed in less than 5 minutes. This also reduced their cancellation rate.
By integrating FinBox BankConnect, RentoMojo minimized their operational costs by a large margin, and reduced human error by switching to a low friction automated risk assessment program.
