IDS Client Support Manager Tina Mausser Named 2019 HW Insider

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Mortgage document preparation vendor International Document Services, Inc. (IDS), announced today that Client Support Manager Tina Mausser has been honored by HousingWire magazine in its fourth annual HW Insiders Awards(TM) program. Winners are chosen by HousingWire's editorial board based on their accomplishments over the past 12 months.

Mausser has been with IDS for 14 years. During that time, she has worked in several departments, including Integrations and Implementations, enabling her to build long-standing relationships with IDS's clients. This experience has also provided her with a well-rounded understanding of IDS products and any issues its clients may face, especially since she on-boarded many of them during her time in Implementation. In addition, Mausser's deep understanding of the IDS system and the mortgage industry uniquely positions her to help IDS clients maximize the flexibility of the idsDoc system, a key IDS differentiator, to meet their individual needs.

"I have always had an incredible support system here at IDS, always pushing me to be better and guiding me along the way," Mausser said. "I would not be successful without the amazing support I have received from my mentors, my managers and my peers."

As Client Support Manager, Mausser manages the largest service team in IDS company history, and since her ascension to the position, she has implemented procedures aimed at improving the quality of customer service IDS provides. The IDS Client Support Team is afforded the unique ability to implement changes for client issues, rather than pass these off to another department. Under Mausser's leadership, the client support team has improved the documentation and testing of said changes, which lends to a smoother production process both internally and externally.

"Tina Mausser is one of IDS's most valued employees. While not one to shine the spotlight on herself, her diligence, leadership and dedication to client service haven't gone unnoticed, and we are thrilled to see her efforts recognized on an industry-wide scale," IDS Vice President and General Manager Mark Mackey said.

According to the publication, the HW Insiders program recognizes 50 individuals who "are the 'go-to' team members in their companies and represent a wide range of occupations within the housing industry, from lending and servicing to investments and real estate. The Insiders are professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects because their contributions and hard work lead to superior results."

"We created the Insiders award program to bring acclaim to the unsung heroes that are helping drive the housing industry forward," HousingWire Managing Editor Ben Lane said. "Last year's nominations were amazing, but this year's blew us away. Each of this year's winners is a true all-star who helps drive their organization to new heights."

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.

"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."
