Bremer Bank is announcing a digital upgrade planned for later this year which is the launch of Numerated – an automated lending platform to enhance the business and ag lending experience for customers across the Bremer footprint. Bremer is the third bank with more than $10 billion in assets to partner with Numerated since the company was founded in 2017.

“We pride ourselves on continuously looking for ways to enhance our relationships with small business and ag customers who are increasingly looking for more convenient ways to streamline and simplify their banking needs,” shared Keith Ahrendt, Chief Credit Officer with Bremer Bank. “We chose Numerated to transform the lending experience for our customers, and look forward to implementing this solution. The end-to-end solution will allow us to continue to develop and deepen customer relationships while increasing convenience, transparency and speed that a digital solution provides.”

Numerated’s real-time lending platform offers Bremer a dynamic, data-driven credit decisioning engine and intelligent routing capabilities that tailor the underwriting process in real-time, including support of loans and lines of credit.

“Bremer Bank has a strong reputation in the business community, with a commitment to providing their customers with innovative products and services,” shared Dan O’Malley, Founder and CEO of Numerated. “Numerated’s platform will continue to build on this reputation and we look forward to working alongside Bremer to help with expanding market share.”

Bremer is constantly striving to identify ways to improve the customer experience and with Numerated’s platform it will position Bremer to attract tech-savvy customers while gaining operational efficiencies.
