Building Your Technology Infrastructure

The National Private Lenders Association is pleased to present this unique panel of technology-based service providers. Learn from this select group of Pitbull Conference experts on how technology can aid your business’s efficiency, growth, and profitability. The future of commercial lenders will depend heavily on their ability to incorporate and leverage these new technologies.


Steve Butler Pitbull Conference PanelistSteve Butler, CEO of GoDocs, is a notable panelist. He will be there to discuss how the commercial real estate industry is evolving and how technology is playing an increasingly important role in providing innovative, customer-focused solutions. Ultimately, companies are looking to improve efficiency and productivity, and technology is essential to meeting these goals and successfully positioning the business for the future. 


The necessity for these types of technology has been made even more apparent by the pandemic. Traditionally, the lending industry has been slow to embrace digitization. It didn’t seem prudent to put expediting a loan ahead of establishing a relationship with the bank. However, when COVID made face-to-face meetings practically impossible, digitization became the new norm. This was further helped along by an influx of small business loan requests driven by the Paycheck Protection Program.


During these unprecedented times, GoDocs has been leading the digital transformation and delivering a faster, better, and easier way of handling lending. By digitizing loan documents and automating the closing process, GoDocs has helped accelerate growth by eliminating expensive attorney costs and delays. Users can generate streamlined, compliant documents in minutes for commercial real estate loans at record speed. This translates into the ability to quickly support an increased volume of loans, maintain a competitive advantage, and increase profitability. 


Learning more about the vision of the digital commercial loan is just one compelling reason to secure your spot at the 2022 Pitbull Conference. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to network with other industry leaders and get a first glance at emerging solutions that are already making major waves. If you want to give your business a leg up in a competitive industry, the Pitbull Conference is a must-attend event.
