Kiosk Association June 2022: ADA for Self-Service and EV Charging Stations

​DENVER, Colo. -- Self-Service Kiosks Digital Signage EV Charging News: This month we've launched a new clearinghouse for EV Charging Stations (https://ev-charging.stations.org). EV charging infrastructure now has significant funding from the NEVI Infrastructure Act.

Funds will be released before the end of 2022. Existing ADA regulations such as ADA 2010 and Section 508 apply. We have a complete writeup on kma.global. We predict that both the U.S. Access Board and ANSI will weigh in on EV-related before the end of 2022.

As part of our EV kickoff we have also put together an EV charging market snapshot reflecting current SLED and FED opportunities for EV charging infrastructure (which have "soared" as the media likes phrasing). Currently $2B in just these markets for active RFPs.

Our ADA Committee is evolving to keep pace with the anticipated regulatory actions in this self-service space. As co-chairman, Nicky Shaw of Storm Interface and Michael O'Hare of TechForAll Consulting have four initiatives they are in process of executing.

1 - Expand our sounding board to officially include organizations such as the NFB, AFB, Canadian groups and the RNIB

2 - Formalize and automate our existing educational communications to procurement entities in the SLED space

3 - Expand the working groups to include new self-service segments such as Smart Cities, robotics and EV Charging

4 - Formalize our industry input from current sponsors such as Panasonic, LG and Intel.

Q4 2021 Critical Defect Rate Rose to 1.95%, Per ACES Quality Management Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, announced the release of its quarterly ACES Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report covering the fourth quarter (Q4) and full calendar year (CY) of 2021. The latest report analyzes post-closing quality control data derived from ACES Quality Management & Control® software.

Notable findings from the Q4 2021 report include:

* The overall critical defect increased 0.08% to 1.95%, a change of 4% from the prior quarter, as lenders transitioned to a purchase-heavy lending environment.

* Income/Employment defects declined in overall share but remained the No. 1 most frequently cited issue, even after pandemic-related verification issues had subsided.

* Appraisal-related defects rose in Q4 2021 after experiencing minimal levels throughout the last refinance cycle.

* Purchase review share was 20 points higher than refinances.

* Conventional lending share is now 8 points below the pandemic peak amid a mini-resurgence in FHA lending.

"While the overall defect rate rose slightly in Q4 2021, defect rates have improved in totality when comparing 2021 to 2020," said ACES Executive Vice President Nick Volpe. "Given the uptick in Q4 and the persistent issues we're still seeing in the Income/Employment category, lenders should focus their efforts on shoring up this component of their underwriting process."

Findings for the Q4 2021 ACES Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report are based on post-closing quality control data derived from the ACES Quality Management and Control® benchmarking system and incorporate data from prior quarters and/or calendar years, where applicable. All reviews and defect data evaluated for the report were based on loan audits selected by lenders for full file reviews.

"As lenders battle over volume, quality control and compliance teams are more important than ever to ensure that the loans that make it through the door meet all regulatory and eligibility requirements," said ACES CEO Trevor Gauthier. "On the origination side, we're seeing the credit box expand to help qualify more borrowers and maintain share. And with 1.3 million loans still in active forbearance along with the renewed focus on servicing from the CFPB and other regulators, servicers and lenders alike must be diligent in their compliance practices to survive this increased level of scrutiny. Leveraging a system like ACES helps both sides of the house ensure they are auditing to the best and most up-to-date standards."

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, announced the launch of its Certified ACES Administrator (CAA) program during its inaugural ACES ENGAGE event, held May 23-25, 2022 at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.

"The Certified ACES Administrator Program has been in the works for months, so it was particularly gratifying for us to unveil this to our dedicated ACES user base during our first ACES ENGAGE event," ACES Executive Vice President of Operations Sharon Reichhardt. "Our customers are the core of everything we do, and this program was thoughtfully designed to provide ongoing integrity and value to ACES users."

The CAA program equips administrators with the best practices, processes, workflows and troubleshooting expertise to guide internal teams on the highest and best use of the ACES platform. Upon completion of the CAA program, administrators will receive a digital certification badge and a digital certificate that includes date of certification and date of expiration to keep for personal records or professional use.

In addition to the announcement regarding the CAA program, ACES ENGAGE attendees also heard from an array of industry experts. Mortgage Bankers Association economist Eddie Seiler, Fannie Mae's Senior Director of Loan Quality Duane Gilkison, Ballard Spahr attorney Richard Andreano and SWS Risk Advisory's Steve Spies addressed topics such as housing and consumer finance industry trends, the current economic outlook, quality control, fraud/risk management and compliance.

The event's keynote speaker Aron Ralston, the author of Between a Rock and a Hard Place and the basis for the feature film 127 Hours starring James Franco, shared his story of survival and what it taught him about overcoming life's challenges and struggles with the right mindset. Attendees also received an overview of the current ACES product roadmap and previews of upcoming features and functionality to be added later in the year.

"ACES ENGAGE was a huge success, and we are thankful that so many of our users, prospects and partners could join us for this one-of-a-kind event," ACES CEO Trevor Gauthier said. "We are constantly looking for ways in which we can deliver more value to our customer base. Given that our NPS score increased to 88 post-event, I feel confident that we delivered on that promise and look forward to delivering even more value at next year's ACES ENGAGE."

ACES ENGAGE will return to The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs on May 17-19, 2023.

Critical Defect Rate Drops 18% in Q3 2021, Per ACES Quality Management Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, announced the release of its quarterly ACES Mortgage QC Trends Report covering the third quarter (Q3) of 2021. The latest report provides an analysis of post-closing quality control data derived from ACES Quality Management & Control® software.

Notable findings from the Q3 2021 report include:

* Mortgage lenders managed mortgage origination quality extremely well in Q3 2021, leading to an 18% improvement in the overall credit defect rate.

* Manufacturing-related loan defects decreased as volumes declined.

* Q3 marked the official shift from refinances to a purchase-driven market, with purchase defects increasing as a result.

* Defect performance on conventional loans stabilized while FHA defects rose.

* The Early Payment Defaults trend line indicates that reviews peaked and are now below pre-pandemic levels, shifting the focus to the remaining loans in forbearance status and exit plans for those borrowers.

"The critical defect rate for Q3 2021 dropped 18% to 1.86%, a welcomed improvement from the previous quarter. Lenders also experienced a slight decrease in origination volume, down 8% from Q2 of 2021," said ACES Executive Vice President Nick Volpe. "Metrics are beginning to trend back to their historic normal levels as volume moderates. With the amount of volatility in macroeconomic factors and rising rates, the decline in the overall critical defect rate is a testament to lenders taking quality management and control seriously."

Findings for the Q3 2021 ACES Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report are based on post-closing quality control data derived from the ACES Quality Management and Control® benchmarking system and incorporate data from prior quarters and/or calendar years, where applicable. All reviews and defect data evaluated for the report were based on loan audits selected by lenders for full file reviews.

"An improvement in the critical defect rate is always a positive sign. The worst of early payment default volume seems to be behind us, but we're not out of the woods yet. Lenders' focus should continue to be on helping remaining loans in forbearance status and building exit plans for those borrowers," said ACES CEO, Trevor Gauthier. "Lenders and banks need to be cognizant of the economic and geopolitical environments in the coming months and possibly years. As the Federal Reserve works to calm inflation, these actions oftentimes have a ripple effect, which can certainly impact loan quality."
