  • Check for missing documents automatically without having to flip through every page manually.
  • Bundle your documents into a single PDF, or a zip file, or an XML file, named correctly according to the investor specific requirements.
  • Securely deliver the document package with the correct metadata.

  • Send automatic surveys to find out what your branches or brokers think of your back office enabling you to make data driven decisions and adjustments.

Originator product help desk

  • Central location to ask and answer questions about your loan products.
  • Allow underwriters to answer questions without sacrificing turn times.
  • Build a library of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

Product guidelines handbook

  • Maintain your own guidelines without costly monthly fees.
  • Don’t wait for your provider to take a day or more to process your updates; make the changes yourself and instantly publish.
  • Maintain trackable revisions so originators and staff know what changed and when.

Business process improvement

  • Turn manual process into point and click routines; allow your people to do what they do best, not grind away at repetitive tasks.
  • Consolidate your loan information from many services, systems, & sources.
  • Integrate your myriad of third party systems into a cohesive whole. For example: pull lock data from your pricing system into the request form in your appraisal system and vice-versa. Don’t make your employees and business partners retype the same information again and again.
  • Turn your email requests into reliable process queues. Use simple forms to get more complete information allowing you to better prioritize and organize.

Technical guidance

  • We can build documentation of your mortgage technology process, so you know how it all works, and have a roadmap to sustainably evolve it over time; no more wondering how something is supposed to work or where in the workflow you should fit a new process.
  • Let us show you how to write a software specification that communicates what you need, that doesn’t leave critical functionality open to interpretation, but doesn’t back you into a corner with too narrow a solution.
  • Have a solution but wonder if it can be accomplished this quarter or even this year? Let us assess the feasibility and point out common pitfalls.
  • Need a solution but worried about if it can fit into your budget? Let us estimate a realistic range and provide suggestions for simpler alternatives that get you what you actually need in much less time.
