Most lenders would agree that spreading is an important—but time-consuming—manual function. What if you could automate data collection and spreading so you could spend more time on valuable work, or with your clients?

At Moody’s Analytics, our goal is to improve every step of the credit lifecycle so you can give your clients a better experience. Join us for this special webinar to learn what new technologies we’ve invested in and how they can enhance your credit business.

We’ll take a detailed look at our automated spreading capabilities, including our AI-enabled QUIQspread™ tool. Our product specialists will share the innovative technology behind this award-winning tool and show how it can bring transparency, intelligence, and consistency to your spreading workflows.
