Examples of this include the ability to take advantage of loan origination milestones to trigger pre-funding quality control eligibility or to systemically attach documentation to reverifications. For users that have customized Encompass to store QC and defect data within the system, TRK will provide support for custom fields lenders have created within Encompass to support existing QC workflows.

"Having direct access to the Encompass Partner Connect APIs has allowed us to build an environment in which Insight RDM and Encompass work in seamless harmony to support lenders' quality control activities," said TRK Executive Vice President of Strategy Jeremy Burcham.

TRK Connection Upgrades Mortgage QC Loan Sampling Functionality within Insight RDM, Adds Predictive Loan Quality Analytics

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- TRK Connection (TRK), a leading provider of mortgage quality control (QC) and origination management solutions, announced it has enhanced the loan sampling functionality and added predictive analytics to its Insight Risk & Defect Management (RDM) mortgage QC audit platform.

These new capabilities enable Insight users to engage in more intelligent discretionary loan sampling, preventing over-selection of files for review and providing better control over sample size while meeting all discretionary loan target criteria.

"Loan sampling is a critical component of the QC process, and the more lenders are able to fine-tune their selection of loans for review, the better insights they'll receive regarding loan quality," said Jeremy Burcham, EVP of TRK Connection. "Additions like intelligent loan sampling and predictive analytics ensure Insight RDM continues to deliver every tool imaginable to aid lenders in reducing their repurchase risk and improving their loan quality."

Using a lender's historical loan samples and defect trending data, Insight RDM optimizes the discretionary sampling process to ensure the loans selected for review are representative of the lender's historical pipeline, which helps keep lenders compliant with their investor approved quality control plan's loan sampling requirements.

Insight RDM allows clients to identify key areas for discretionary audits based on trending defects to provide lenders with proactive capabilities to remedy loan production issues as soon as possible. Further, Insight users can now also conduct predictive reporting on future loan quality performance based on their historical data, allowing them to understand the effect of loan quality issues from the start.

"While it is nearly impossible to prevent errors from creeping into the loan origination process, it is possible, with the right tools, to anticipate those defects and detect them as early in the process as possible," Burcham added. "In addition to creating a more streamlined and efficient QC audit process, Insight RDM helps lenders harness the loan quality data already at their disposal to create additional layers of defense against loan defects to ensure investors receive loans that are as pristine as possible."

TRK Connection Add Industry-Leading Reverification Functionality to Insight RDM Mortgage QC Platform

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- TRK Connection (TRK), a leading provider of mortgage quality control (QC) and origination management solutions, announced it has added functionality to its flagship QC audit platform Insight Risk & Defect Management (RDM) to help lenders digitally manage the reverification process, including eSign and automated bulk document indexing.

Using Insight RDM's eSign capabilities, external sources (employers, financial institutions, etc.) can electronically complete re-verification documents, eliminating the need to print and mail (or fax) outbound documents and scan and attach inbound documents while also providing a more secure method of document delivery, completion and return.

"Lenders' digital mortgage efforts shouldn't stop at the closing table," said Teri Sundh, CEO of TRK Connection. "Insight RDM is the first mortgage QC platform to offer its users full eSign capabilities so that they can continue to operate electronically and take advantage of the efficiency and cost-savings benefits inherent in a digital mortgage environment."

For those institutions that still receive re-verification documents in paper format, Insight's bulk document indexing feature Redex(TM) helps lenders and audit firms streamline their re-verification process using electronic batch processing. With Redex, lenders and audit firms can electronically ingest returned re-verification documents in bulk, and from there, the system sorts, organizes and indexes the documents and then automatically attaches them to their associated loan files.

"While TRK is a fervent advocate of the industry's digital mortgage efforts, we also recognize that, until digital mortgage adoption becomes widespread, there are still going to be instances where lenders will need to work in paper, especially in the re-verification process," Sundh said. "Redex is our solution to this issue. By enabling lenders and audit firms to electronically ingest and process these documents in bulk, we're saving our clients untold hours of labor that be re-directed towards activities that have a greater impact on improving loan quality."
