Teslar PPP Forgiveness provides an automated workflow to efficiently collect and manage the documents required to work towards forgiveness of PPP loans. It automates data entry wherever possible, and can enable electronic signatures and assist in the submission of data to the Small Business Administration (SBA). The National Federation of Independent Business reports that more than half of business owners expect all expenses to be forgiven from their PPP loans, and 27% say they expect three-quarters of the loan to be forgiven under current guidelines. Small businesses can use the Teslar PPP Forgiveness application today to calculate various forgiveness scenarios on their bank’s website and determine the best decisions for their business.

Teslar has supported community banks throughout the entire PPP process thus far, facilitating tens of thousands of loan applications. First National Bank of NWA, a division of First National Bank of Fort Smith, plans to use Teslar PPP Forgiveness to meet the needs of its six unique communities in Northwest Arkansas. Teslar was able to implement the bank’s secure portal management system for PPP applications in one day in order to offer a digital application process for their customers’ loans on opening day. That weekend the bank processed 250 digital applications, ultimately funding 100% of the 770 completed applications they received.
“We were not a big SBA lender before this,” explained Rob Husong, president of First National Bank of NWA. “There is no way we could have handled the volume of PPP loan business successfully without Teslar. Teslar Unite – PPP made it possible for community bankers like us to support our local businesses. I am proud of how First National Bank of NWA was able to step up to the challenge with Teslar’s solutions and we look forward to helping our local businesses realize the benefit of the PPP through the forgiveness application process.”
