LCS mentors our borrowers through a complex process and lets them know where their application stands every step of the way.
White Plains, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2011
Guaranteed Home Mortgage Company, Inc. (Guaranteed, http://www.ghmc.com), a national residential mortgage investment and banking firm, today announced the implementation of its new Loan Communications System (LCS) to improve compliance and consumer interactions.
The system automates compliance with Regulation Z, Regulation B and RESPA disclosures, sending adverse notices when necessary; provides digital imaging to allow completion and e-signatures of state-specific forms; offers a consumer portal to provide answers to borrowers’ two key questions -- where am I in the process and what do I do now? -- and automates the workflow to ensure underwriters receive complete files every time.
David Wind, Principal and President of Guaranteed Home Mortgage Company, said, "LCS brings our company into the 21st century and saves us from costly legal liability by ensuring we meet changing rules and regulations, new lending requirements and the latest investor guidelines. More importantly, it mentors our borrowers through a complex process and lets them know where their application stands every step of the way.”
Wind went on to describe the consumer portal in more detail including a color-coded bar graph showing the real-time status of the loan; a box listing any required documents, with e-signature software and a bar-coded fax cover sheet to facilitate their completion; and an information window and discussion tab to allow interactions among the consumer and anyone on the loan team.
LCS provides an orderly workflow for loan applications by automatically forwarding the file to the next person in the process, thus ensuring the file is complete when it reaches the underwriter’s desk. Underwriter productivity, in terms of loans per month, is significantly increased, while borrowers are spared from unnecessary anxiety during an inherently trying and transitional period of their lives.
Founded in 1992, Guaranteed has grown rapidly since its inception. It recently opened a new office in Rockefeller Plaza in New York City and added the states of Delaware, Indiana and Missouri to its roster. Guaranteed was also listed in the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies in the nation.
