A R T I C L E:

In a U.S. economy that needs a boost, Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating and Preferred Seating Designs are excited to announce that they will be creating new designs for high-quality stadium and theater seats through a partnership with three Midwest manufacturers.

Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating will focus on the marketing; Preferred Seating Designs on stadium design build; its partners will handle manufacturing.

"Of course we are thrilled to release new and exciting products in the theater seating arena," says Frank Sumner, President for Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating, "but we are equally as excited about the impact that it will have on creating American manufacturing jobs."

The first stadium seats to be released are the Liberty stadium seat and the Tuf seat. The upscale Liberty stadium seat design is manufactured with robotic quality precision and durability; the Tuf Seat is perfect for tighter budgets and may be retrofit onto existing bleachers or risers. Both are compliant with the American Disabilities Act.

Typically, performing art centers and conference centers require more upscale seating. Some more traditional theater seating venues may include: movie theaters, school auditoriums, lecture halls and service areas. Courthouses often are in need of fixed, individual-type seating as well as arena and larger spectator areas.

And, with the continued growth of mega churches, Concert seats are meeting the needs for church seating. These seats provide more leg room and back-to-back spacing. Fold-up, compact theater seats allow for additional space for increased traffic flow through the aisles and for greater seating capacity.

Sumner adds that, "Current outsourcing and importation of auditorium and stadium seats from countries where labor and materials are less expensive, has contributed to a weakened U.S. economy and unemployment; we aim to reverse this trend."

About Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating:

Preferred Seating Designs LLC specializes in the complete design build of athletic facilities and other large public assembly seating venues. Tiered seating occurs on more than one elevation in the same structure and includes grandstands, bleachers, telescoping and folding seating. From small movable aluminum benches to giant grandstands that cannot be moved, bleachers have flexibility unlike any spectator seating.

The company is led by Richard Barrios, president; and Frank Sumner, vice president. Barrios is recognized as a leading bleacher-seating designer and works regularly with most major U.S.-bleacher manufacturers to design, stamp and approve these types of projects.

With more than 20 years of industry experience, these products are marketed throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Multi-state Mortgage Banker Implements DMD DataTrac Originator Point-of-Sale, Securing Benefits of End-to-End Loan Origination System

Author: Del Mar DataTrac
Dateline: San Diego, California (SAN DIEGO, Calif.)  | Thu, 10 Feb 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Minnesota-based multi-state mortgage banker Summit Mortgage (Summit) has replaced its legacy point-of-sale (POS) technology with DataTrac Originator (DTO), recently released by Del Mar DataTrac, Inc. (DMD).”



A R T I C L E:

Minnesota-based multi-state mortgage banker Summit Mortgage (Summit) has replaced its legacy point-of-sale (POS) technology with DataTrac Originator (DTO), recently released by Del Mar DataTrac®, Inc. (DMD), the leading provider of affordable mortgage lending automation solutions, and an industry pioneer in business intelligence, paperless lending, and loan process workflow tools (www.dmdinc.com).

Lending since 1992, Summit Mortgage is currently licensed in 21 states. Its business objectives include a focus on regulatory and investor compliance, and a commitment to provide its branches the tools to deliver both customer service and loan quality. Summit was interested in ensuring that its POS was truly complimentary to its back office workflow and database of record, DMD's DataTrac. The mortgage banker has also implemented DataTrac's Electronic Document Management tool, DataTrac EDM, to support its paperless initiatives.

"DMD has been proud to serve Summit Mortgage as their partner in workflow automation for the past six years. We are more than pleased that they have added DTO to their DataTrac suite, rounding out our end-to-end lending platform," said DMD president Rob Katz. "We designed DataTrac Originator based on input from mortgage bankers just like them, and we are confident that the tool is a game-changer in terms of compliance, transparency and productivity."

"Since the 2010 RESPA changes it's critical that a loan origination tool can ensure loan level compliance in real-time - from the very beginning of the process," said Summit Mortgage's western Regional Manager Michael Moorhouse. "We've known since the RESPA changes what we wanted our loan process to look like, but our previous point-of-sale could not enforce it. Our compliance and operational efficiency will clearly benefit from adding DataTrac's business rule-driven workflow philosophy in our point-of-sale solution."

"When we learned of the functionality enabled by DataTrac Originator's SQL database architecture, and supported by business rules, it was clearly the complement needed to our existing DataTrac product configuration," said Moorhouse. "All the integrations we needed were already there. The bottom line is that we wanted to achieve a loan process that is faster, better and cheaper than what we were accustomed to."

According to Moorhouse, Summit's decision to select DTO was in part motivated by its desire to execute its new secondary marketing efforts.

"One of the reasons we began looking for a different point-of-sale solution is that it will be critical for us to accurately track our pipeline down to a regional, branch, and originator level," he explained. "The DMD end-to-end product suite allows us to effectively manage and control our business, and that can ultimately translate to competitive advantage."

About Del Mar DataTrac (DMD):

Marking its 20th business anniversary in 2011 and with more than $2 trillion in mortgage loans funded through DataTrac since its inception, Del Mar DataTrac (DMD) is the leading provider of affordable loan automation solutions for mortgage lenders, banks, and credit unions.

DMD offers a scalable workflow platform that enables lending best practices by leveraging DataTrac as the back-office hub along with a sophisticated point-of-sale system, a web-based originator portal and commission engine, and a management dashboard - all in a paperless environment.

The DataTrac Suite is designed by mortgage lenders for mortgage lenders who strive to deliver extraordinary customer service, increase production and profitability, reduce risk, and streamline overall efficiency. For more information, visit www.dmdinc.com .

Comergence Compliance Launches Loan Originator Compensation Agreement Management and Administration Service

Author: Comergence Compliance Monitoring
Dateline: Orange, California (ORANGE, Calif.)  | Thu, 10 Feb 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Greg Schroeder, president of Comergence Compliance Monitoring, a leading provider of third-party originator (TPO) monitoring and due diligence solutions, announces the release of CompEditor, a comprehensive tool to help Lenders manage their Loan Originator Compensation Agreements as required by Federal Regulation Z: Loan Originator Compensation and Steering.”



A R T I C L E:

Greg Schroeder, president of Comergence Compliance Monitoring, a leading provider of third-party originator (TPO) monitoring and due diligence solutions, announces the release of CompEditor™, a comprehensive tool to help Lenders manage their Loan Originator Compensation Agreements as required by Federal Regulation Z: Loan Originator Compensation and Steering.

Effective April 1, 2011, Section 226.25 of Federal Regulation Z, subsection (a) General Rule, requires for each transaction subject to the loan originator compensation provision that the creditor maintain records of compensation it provided to the loan originator for the transaction as well as the compensation agreement in effect on the date the interest rate was set for the transaction. The creditor must retain records to evidence compliance with Regulation Z for at least two years after a mortgage transaction is consummated.

"By utilizing our comprehensive TPO management compliance system, Lenders can now use the document management portion of our system to initiate, distribute, renew and retain their Loan Originator Compensation Agreements and house these agreements within the complete and comprehensive Mortgage Broker profile database we establish for each lender," said Schroeder. "Comergence Compliance Monitoring has worked diligently to establish processes that would constitute best practices for this portion of the Truth in Lending Act."

Schroeder notes that independent Mortgage Brokerages can also utilize the Comergence system for the management and administration of their requirements to produce, manage and maintain individual Loan Officer Compensation Agreements. "Our system can facilitate the sharing of these individual agreements with each lender the mortgage broker is contracted with if the lender wishes to review them."

"The added service that CompEditor provides takes a heavy financial burden off the lenders to create systems on their own when their resources are already heavily taxed," said Schroeder.

About Comergence:

Comergence Compliance Monitoring, headquartered in Orange, California, is the mortgage industry's premier GRC solution for TPO management and compliance monitoring providing a comprehensive alternative to a lender's in-house management and monitoring resources. Using a variety of best-practice processes, proprietary monitoring technology and hands-on service protocols, Comergence provides customers unparalleled simplicity, security and quality.

International Document Services Adds Risk-Based Pricing Notices to Mortgage Doc Packages

Author: International Document Services, Inc.
Dateline: Salt Lake City, Utah (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah)  | Thu, 10 Feb 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “International Document Services (IDS), a mortgage document preparation vendor, integrated risk-based pricing notices into the idsDoc system on January 1, 2011, per the deadline set in the December 2009 final ruling by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB).”



A R T I C L E:

International Document Services (IDS), a mortgage document preparation vendor, integrated risk-based pricing notices into the idsDoc system on January 1, 2011, per the deadline set in the December 2009 final ruling by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB).

The rules, which went into effect on January 1, 2011, require lending institutions to notify customers when they are receiving a higher interest rate and the reasons why. Of the five model forms provided by the FRB and FTC, the H-1 and H-3 forms have been made available to lenders in the idsDoc system, as the other notices pertain to account reviews (H-2), loans not secured by residential property (H-4) and instances where no credit score is available for a consumer (H-5).

"As the nation's focus shifted to the public's lack of knowledge regarding credit and financial instruments, disclosures, and their use by lenders, the need for education became much more important to regulators and consumer advocacy groups alike," said Curt Doman, president of IDS. "As a docs provider, it is our duty to not only make these forms available within our system, but also to provide our customers with the guidance and education on the correct usage of these new forms."

The H-1 form is used when, based on a borrower's credit report, the lender grants credit to a borrower on terms that are "materially less favorable" than the "most favorable" terms it provides to a "substantial portion" of its customers. The H-3 form functions as an "exception" to the foregoing analysis because it may be provided "for loans secured by one to four units of residential real property."

The H-1 form must be provided "before consummation" but "not earlier than the time the approval decision is communicated" to the borrower. Alternatively, the H-3 form may be provided "at or before consummation" or "as soon as reasonably practicable," which is generally understood to be within three business days of obtaining a credit score. IDS customers have the option to include the H-3 form in closing, re-disclosure, or initial disclosure document packages.

About IDS Inc.:

IDS is a nationwide provider of mortgage documents and compliance. IDS services include closing documents, reverse documents, initial disclosures and fulfillment. IDS's solution, idsDoc, is recognized in the industry for its ability to be customized to meet specific lender needs. IDS backs the system with unsurpassed customer service, cutting-edge technology, compliance and document guarantees and a solid compliance team. Lenders looking to move forward when it comes to doc prep can visit the IDS Web site at www.idsdoc.com or call 800.554.1872.

Edward Professional Advisors is Helping Compton Regain Control of its Police Services

Author: Edward Professional Advisors
Dateline: Rancho Cucamonga, California (RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.)  | Tue, 08 Feb 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Edward Professional Advisors announces that the City of Compton has selected it to help create its own police department. The Mayor of the City of Compton says, 'We are excited about the opportunity to regain local control of our police services. We are in the midst of a campaign to rebirth a new Compton.'”



A R T I C L E:

Edward Professional Advisors announces that the City of Compton has selected it to help create its own police department. The Mayor of the City of Compton says, "We are excited about the opportunity to regain local control of our police services. We are in the midst of a campaign to rebirth a new Compton. Having our own police department is part of the overall strategic plan to make Compton a better place to live and work."

Dr. Paul Edward, founder of Edward Professional Advisors, says, "The Sheriff's Department has done a great job during the past ten years in Compton, but research clearly shows that cities with strong community-based police departments are better places to live and work. The police-community relationship is crucial for quality law enforcement and we are excited to be working on this historic project."

The opponents of Compton's transition to local control of their police services say Compton will not be able to afford the costs that the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department currently spends on the police services they provide for Compton.

Compton's City Manager, Willie Norfleet, says, "Not only will we gain local control of our police services, but our efforts will cost the citizens of Compton less while providing top quality police services."

"As one of the few African American owned consulting firms, it is an honor to be helping Compton improve its police services. Compton is a place of great importance to the African American community and it feels wonderful to be collaborating with the citizens of Compton to improve their safety and quality of life," says Dr. Edward. Compton's successful transition to locally controlled police services will not only be significant for this African American community but will serve at the blueprint for other communities around the world.

The firm's founder, Dr. Edward, is an award-winning author, experienced organizational psychologist, certified business coach, and popular university lecturer.
