eTrac Pre-Schedules Appraisal Appointments; Requires Vendor Agreement Before Acceptance

eTrac Pre-Schedules Appraisal Appointments; Requires Vendor Agreement Before AcceptanceEfficient turn-times are an essential component of the mortgage lending process, especially in today’s fast-paced and highly competitive market environment. Avoiding unnecessary delays is crucial for securing more referrals, which leads to more business.

Timely appraisals play a vital role, yet most appointments must be left open-ended and scheduled at the vendor’s discretion – which can lead to unforeseen delays.

To combat this common scenario, Global DMS’ eTrac® valuation management platform comes equipped with a unique Pre-Scheduler tool, which allows both lenders and AMCs to set between 1-3 predetermined appraisal appointment dates that an appraiser must first agree to before accepting the order.  

eTrac’s Pre-Scheduler tool provides numerous benefits to a lender or AMC’s workflow, including:

  • Reduces turn-times by instantly scheduling appraisal appointments.
  • Allows users to choose specific appointment dates based on their parameters, business processes, or special requests from borrowers or clients.
  • Uses broadcast technology to automatically push orders to eligible appraisers only, ensuring quick acceptance and timely completion.

In addition, Pre-Scheduler also includes an efficient mobile feature – allowing users to broadcast their order requests via text message. Appraisers that opt-in will receive the order’s information for a quick review and respond accordingly, all through texting (standard data rates apply).
