BROOKFIELD, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fiserv, Inc.

The Business Lending Strategy from Fiserv begins with Fiserv consultants conducting an in-depth review of a bank's commercial lending business.

The review and recommendations from Fiserv utilize the company's expertise in commercial and small business lending to advance important institutional objectives, including improvements in commercial and small business market share, enhanced profitability and greater efficiency in lending processes.

In addition to the expertise of the Fiserv consultants, the Business Lending Strategy program draws on the expertise of several Fiserv business units including:
