ACES Quality Management Releases Call Monitoring Audit Pack to Enhance Mortgage Quality Control and Compliance Programs

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, has announced its newest product offering, ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack. The pre-built, configurable Call Monitoring Audit Pack enables lenders and servicers to establish an additional layer of protection quickly and seamlessly within their QC program. ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack includes custom data fields, ACES managed questionnaires and custom reports configurable to the individual organizations' business needs.

"With the rise in higher escrow charges from insurance and property taxes, we expect banks and mortgage servicers will see an uptick in consumer calls, thus creating a clear need for a call monitoring tool as part of their overall quality control program," said ACES CEO Trevor Gauthier. "With so many guidelines to adhere to, a robust Call Monitoring program is critical to identifying where improvements are needed to protect your organization from regulatory and reputational risk."

Call Monitoring is essential to any substantial risk management program as required by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPFA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, as well as state-specific laws. While ACES users have always been able to perform call monitoring audits by leveraging ACES' robust customization capabilities, the new ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack gives our customers a starting point to quickly and easily leverage the pre-built features. As part of the ACES technology ecosystem, ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack comes pre-built with the necessary data fields, requirements, and reporting functions to make auditing seamless and will allow servicers to:

* Improve service quality and enhance the customer experience;

* Identify agent skill gaps as input for coaching and training needs;

* Increase productivity; and

* Ensure regulatory compliance to avoid high penalty fines.

"Given all the economic and environmental change in recent years, servicers have felt the brunt of it all. From COVID-19 to natural disasters, they have been on the frontlines of borrower communications. As regulators turn their attention to call monitoring to ensure consumer protection, at a minimum, servicers need to take action through QC tech to show regulators they are utilizing their resources effectively," added Gauthier.

IRS Solutions Releases IRS Advance Notice, Innovative Tax Resolution Platform Feature that Tracks and Alerts Users to IRS Transcript Changes

VALENCIA, Calif. -- IRS Solutions® announces the addition of IRS Advance Notice™ (IAN) to the industry's favorite tax resolution platform. The new feature detects and alerts tax professionals to changes on client IRS transcripts, often months in advance of official notification by mail. CPAs, Enrolled Agents, Attorneys and other tax specialists can work less, earn more, and enjoy steady year-round income with IAN.

The Need for IRS Advance Notice

Former IRS agent David Stone and his wife Suzanne founded IRS Solutions in 2011. A practicing Enrolled Agent, company CEO David Stone uses his insider understanding to develop software that effortlessly generates dependable year-round income by meeting the unique needs of tax professionals.

Speaking about IAN, David Stone says, "Merely reacting to IRS maneuvers isn't enough to provide an exceptional level of service. We must be proactive advocates on behalf of our clients. IAN's transcript monitoring provides clients with a sense of security, protecting them against identity theft, fraud, and other potential risks associated with their tax information."

"No more wasting hours manually sifting through complex transcripts and hoping you don't miss anything," adds Suzanne Stone. "IAN automatically spots tiny but critical changes and lets you know they've occurred."

How IRS Advance Notice Works

Included in every IRS Solutions membership at no additional charge, IRS Advance Notice is software that peers into the IRS system for any updates to transcripts; eliminating the need for constant checking and preventing unpleasant surprises. After a simple, one-time setup, users securely connect to the IRS Transcript Delivery System (TDS) through a proprietary and agency-approved integration, then select from a list of IRS transaction codes they want to be notified about.

In addition, weekly transcript updates are fed directly into your client's profile. IAN observes and alerts to changes like:

* Approvals of Form 2848 (Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative) and Form 8821 (Tax Information Authorization)

* Impending audit

* Federal tax lien

* Installment Agreement modifications

* Offer in Compromise activity

* Passport holds

Annual transcript monitoring with IAN creates an additional year-round revenue stream and cultivates long-term business relationships by positioning tax pros as trusted advisors. Enrolled Agent Emily VanCamp is leading the way.

"We have had lots of interested people signing up for IAN since we started introducing it," she says. "We think we can realistically expect a 20-30% revenue increase by implementing a full-scale IAN plan this year." Promotional materials including website badges and ready-to-use social media images are provided to all members in an exclusive Marketing Toolbox.

About IRS Solutions:

IRS Solutions is specialized tax resolution software that is designed by tax pros for tax pros. With a monthly or yearly subscription, members gain full access to all features; including comprehensive tax resolution tools like IAN, automated analysis with solution recommendations, bulk transcript downloads, and a custom-branded secure client portal.
