Paperless Contracts – The New Normal In The COVID World

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has disrupted business processes and altered the way organisations interact with their customers. As work-from-home becomes the new norm and virtual meeting rooms the new office, organisations will increasingly embrace contactless processes that facilitate seamless business continuity without the need for any in-person customer meetings.

Taking cognizance of the severe financial burden on organisations due to the current COVID-19 lockdown, the government has regularly introduced a slew of credit policy measures for distressed businesses, especially MSMEs. Amongst others, a key measure announced by the government yesterday (13th May 2020) is the introduction of automatic collateral-free loans for MSMEs.

As organisations line up for new business loans, Financial Institutions need to make sure that they process the loan applications in a quick turnaround time, minimal paperwork and without the need to physically meet the loan applicants.

Welcome to paperless contracting – the new normal in the COVID-19 world of business.
