“Before Cync Software, our loan processing was entirely manual and Excel-based. We needed a cloud-based solution that would reduce the potential for error, improve the user experience and provide the automation we needed. Cync Software really went above and beyond by allowing us to customize a solution to better fit our growing portfolio.”
-Evan Henris, Parabilis
Automating the Borrowing Base ProcessCync allows Lending institutions to increase their productivity and reduce costs by automating the Borrowing Base Certificate (BBC) process. Cync’s ABL monitoring abilities are ideal for both the lender and the borrower. Cync can help manage operational challenges created by manual processing and monitoring requirements. Cync can process BBC’s daily, weekly, monthly, or on-demand. Lenders can perform the collateral valuation for formula-based advance rates and track various types of collateral. Lenders or borrowers only have to upload files and Cync automatically calculates ineligibles on the listed collateral types. Ineligibles can be set up at the client, account debtor, or invoice level. Once the BBC is completed, Cync offers electronic funding requests and approvals.

Automation & Productivity
Lenders use ABL to calculate how much a borrower is allowed to receive as a loan disbursement or advance. ABL’s primary function is efficiently and effectively making calculations based on the borrower’s collateral, which usually consists of AR, inventory, and equipment.
Cync ABL extracts data and automatically calculates ineligibles simply by uploading a file to the application. Lenders can schedule a daily file export from the core banking system to keep ABL up-to-date with loan details, such as balances and maturity dates. ABL also offers a range of account debtor maintenance tools to give collateral analysts the upper hand when it comes to risk assessment.
With this information, lenders can easily make funding decisions within minutes.
Cync ABL Integrations & Development SolutionsCync ABL integrates with different services to allow customer data to be safely and securely transferred into the application.
The Salesforce framework integration service enables customers to securely transfer their data into Cync applications by managing the data ingestion and validation processes with speed, agility, and reliability for peace of mind.
This integration allows customers to fetch invoices from their Quickbooks account and import them directly into Cync. Customers can easily connect to the Quickbooks application in minutes without waiting days or weeks to code custom connectors.
Codat Integration for Automated Spreading
