Efficient turn-times are an essential component of the mortgage lending process, especially in today’s fast-paced market environment. Timely real estate appraisals play a vital role, yet many appointments are scheduled at the vendor’s discretion – which can lead to unforeseen delays.
To help combat this scenario, Global DMS’ eTrac® valuation management platform has been equipped with a Pre-Scheduler tool, which allows lenders and AMCs to set between 1-3 pre-determined appraisal appointment dates that an appraiser must first agree to before accepting the order.
This unique functionality provides numerous benefits, including:
- Reduces turn-times by instantly scheduling your appraisal appointments.
- Allows you to choose specific appointment dates based on your 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.
Pre-Scheduler also includes an efficient mobile feature, which allows 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.
In addition, Pre-Scheduler has been incorporated into eTrac’s integration with Encompass® and can be utilized by these users directly from within their native Encompass interface. (Learn more at booth #515 at the upcoming Ellie Mae Experience!)
