Pendo Makes Enhancements to Its Appraisal Review Tool

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- Pendo, a nationwide appraisal management company (AMC), has made enhancements to their Appraisal Review Tool, which is part of their proprietary technology solutions for appraisal management.

Pendo's Appraisal Review Tool assists their quality review team in managing the process of checking each and every appraisal, ensuring reports are accurate, complete and most of all compliant. Among its enhancements, the tool now has over 100 automated checks, eliminating errors and redundancies in double and triple checking for missing or incorrect information. Within the automated checks there are several that perform subjective analysis, which impacts the number of revisions and lower CU scores. The finished outcome is a completed file that now shows the details and comments from the appraiser and Pendo's quality review team.

"Managing hundreds of appraisals each day requires reviewing lots of details which can slow down the appraisal process, put quality and compliance at risk, or both," said Mike Peck, co-founder of Pendo. "The enhancements we made to our Appraisal Review Tool places automatic checks and balances into the quality review process while providing better outcomes and quicker files to our clients."

Pendo's quality and compliance efforts center on a configurable proprietary technology that allows each client to customize its quality control process according to its own unique requirements. Enhancements to major technology tools such as the Appraisal Review Tool are one of many steps the company continues to take in offering the most accurate, timely and compliant appraisals.

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- Pendo, a nationwide appraisal management company (AMC), announced that John Whitlow, the company's vice president of operations and technology, has been named to the second annual HousingWire Insiders list.

According to HousingWire, the Insiders award recognizes "go-to" team members-the professionals that their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects because their contributions and hard work lead to superior results. Winners are selected by HousingWire's editorial board, based on their contributions over the last 12 months.

Whitlow oversaw development and implementation of the technology that enabled Pendo to increase its monthly volume, with no degradation in client service levels. He also conceptualized and created the custom dashboard and performance report at the heart of Pendo's client scorecard program, which has proven to be a major differentiator for the company.

"John is a reflection of Pendo's core values-he is forward thinking and always looking to improve the process in a way that benefits our clients and partners," said Mike Peck, Pendo co-founder. "Like Pendo, he's that reliable partner who ensures things run the way they're supposed to while taking on new challenges as needed. He exemplifies who we are as a company."

This year's 33 winners represented various sectors of the housing economy, including residential mortgage lending, servicing, investing and real estate.

"The scale of our Insiders award this year is impressive with both its breadth and depth," said Jacob Gaffney, HousingWire Editor-In-Chief. "The talent on display here is unmistakable and the scope of the work our winners do day-in and day-out is a testament to their accomplishments. It's an honor for HousingWire to publish this award."

Whitlow has been with Pendo for five years, and has not only developed new methods for fulfilling the appraisal process, but also oversees their client success team. Under his guidance, Pendo's team members provide the consistently high client and partner service levels that have differentiated the company enough to produce a significant positive impact on the company's revenue and profits.

"I'm honored to receive the HW Insiders award, and to work with such dedicated, talented professionals," said Whitlow. "By receiving this award, I hope to help inspire other AMCs to create a process for making clients and vendors feel valued and appreciated. We have a wonderful opportunity in the appraisal sector to mend fences and formulate an industry that we're proud to be part of in the future."
