U.S. Banks Scale PPP Loan Forgiveness with Help from UiPath Robots


UiPath software robots are now used to help fulfill over $100 billion of the United States (U.S.) federal government stimulus.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will resume accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications from participating lenders on Monday, April 27, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. EDT. Following ratification by the U.S. Congress and the signature of President Trump, the latest pandemic relief stimulus provides $484 billion in additional relief, including $310 billion specifically to extend additional loans to companies that qualify as a small business concern.

In the first phase of the SBA loans that were part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, banks deployed an army of software robots to work alongside bank agents. The result was a ten-fold increase in speed of loan processing and approval.

Deployed in hours versus weeks, UiPath robots handled the extraction of borrower information from forms (such as PPP, 941, 940, 944, 1099 Misc.), loan verification checks, and managed submission of data to the SBA portal. The robots provide enhanced security and a complete audit trail, which aid in a bank’s readiness to serve clients in subsequent phases of the CARES Act.

In addition to continuing to fulfill small business loan requests over the next two weeks, banks are scaling their customer service operations to support the continuous massive volume of customer requests, such as processing SBA loan forgiveness. UiPath attended and unattended robots can support the loan forgiveness process through the following steps:

During the loan forgiveness process, UiPath software robots can prepare the PPP Lender Application Form or can prepare a data extract in a format that can be uploaded to the SBA portal. When there are exceptions, robots can work with bank operations personnel to review and resolve a discrepancy.
