Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2006 –-
Jackson & Associates, Inc., a leading provider of post-foreclosure legal expertise to the real estate owned (REO) industry, announced today that its flagship Symphony web application recently processed its 5,000th legal matter, a little more than a year after its initial release. Since that release, clients have saved an estimated $4 million dollars in carry costs due to Symphony's industry-leading performance.
"When you consider that Symphony is currently limited to the niche of REO evictions and related post-foreclosure legal processes, reaching the 5,000 case mark in about a year's time is a good indicator of just how capable Symphony is, and of how well-received it has been," said Robert Jackson, President and Senior Managing Attorney. "And, we are particularly pleased to have reached this milestone while maintaining a system uptime of over 99%, and with our users rating Symphony among the industry's best default-related technologies."
Symphony is based on a unique and patent-pending process model that trumps the standard eviction tracking capabilities found in most default systems, delivering a quantifiable and objective performance edge that is clearly evident after 5,000 cases. Assuming an average unpaid principal balance of $50,000, a monthly carry cost of 1.5%, and industry-standard eviction timelines, Symphony's performance edge has to date saved clients of Jackson and Associates an estimated $4 million dollars in carry costs alone. By dramatically reducing carry costs, Symphony can positively impact servicers' efforts to control their loss severity. "Our clients have come to rely on our expertise and unique focus to help control their loss severity and manage their legal risk, and Symphony's demonstrated ability to reduce processing timelines, increase productivity, and accurately model the legal processes involved in occupied REO is one way we are helping our clients meet that goal," said Jackson.
Jackson and Associates' Symphony platform for occupied REO management is available at no charge to clients of the firm, and includes such industry firsts as an integrated personal property module, an integrated "cash for keys" module, and a comprehensive, multi-dimensional attorney grading module.
