NetDirector Continues to Provide Best in Class Automation to Improve Compliance in Default Servicing Firms

TAMPA, Fla.Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, provides several data/document automation options for default servicing firms to promote increased compliance throughout the industry. Additionally, NetDirector has maintained and standardized the SOC 2 Type II security procedures in-house to ensure compliance at all points in the flow of data.

With the ever-changing atmosphere of the default servicing industry, it is important for firms to maintain the quality and compliance of the work they do while focusing on efficiency and their bottom line. Among the services available to improve compliance through automation are:

SCRA Military Search

The Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA) requires foreclosure attorneys/trustees check whether borrowers are active duty military members. NetDirector’s Military Search interface streamlines this process and allows subscribers to check active duty status without leaving their case management systems (CMS), alleviating data keying errors and improving timelines.

Firms are required to perform this search on a regular basis to maintain compliance – the most common solution is simply to dedicate employee hours to performing the searches and logging the information. This is an expensive and inefficient solution, that only mitigates the compliance risks to a certain degree – the human element of this solution leaves room for compliance errors that foreclosure firms simply cannot afford.

“NetDirector has allowed us to focus on our core competencies by managing our data & document integration needs. Our firms are seeing the benefits of eliminating data entry and manual business processes for military search, document uploads, and milestone events,” said Ron Llewellyn, Associate Director of Application Services at Barrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel L.L.P.

Additionally, the NetDirector automated military search is fully compatible with the recent DoD website enhancements – many firms are already utilizing NetDirector to solve the challenges of integrating with the new website without increasing dedicated labor and resources to an ongoing concern.

PACER Bankruptcy Search

The Federal court has several bankruptcy court district and divisions upon which bankruptcy dockets are available for verifying bankruptcy filings. NetDirector’s Bankruptcy PACER integration suite alleviates the manual need to log in to multiple court sites (both National and Regional) and/or manually search for the bankruptcy filing -thereby reducing timelines.

The round-trip data interface allows NetDirector subscribers to send requests to the PACER Case Locator site to search for current and prior bankruptcy filings. The automated response can include information on cases filed in other districts/divisions and links to current and prior case dockets and documents. More importantly, returned searches and dockets have live hyperlinks within the PDF documents – saving time by eliminating the need to re-key search information and providing a direct link to cases and docket information for future retrievals. This directly increases a firm’s compliance while automating and simplifying the amount of work required for this mandatory step in the foreclosure process.  For more detailed information on PACER automation, click here to visit our website.

“NetDirector has played a key role in increasing system and workflow efficiency across multiple departments,” said a representative of Rubin Lublin, LLC. “With the processes and checks they have in place we can feel assured that the integration is working and accurate. I have worked in the foreclosure industry over 17 years, and NetDirector is by far the best thing to come along for firms in the past decade.”

Industry Leading Security Standards for Compliance

The SOC 2, or Service Organization Controls 2, is an examination under AICPA standards designed for technology service companies to demonstrate controls around data security and processing integrity. The SOC 2 reports are intended to meet the needs of a broad range of users that need to understand internal controls at a service organization as it relates to security, availability, process integrity, confidentiality and privacy. The Type II report is a report on management’s description of a service organization’s system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls.

“NetDirector displayed the necessary controls in their SOC 2 Type II attestation report,” said Scott Price of A-LIGN, the company that performed the SOC 2 analysis. “Their security and management teams were great to work with throughout the process. There is a strong attention to detail in the organization.”

In addition to the in-house attestations, the data centers utilized by NetDirector through Peak10 maintain the same security standards or higher in all aspects of their company. Many technology companies have recently been brought to light as claiming true “compliance” in their organization, when they really mean that their data center has gone through the rigorous examination. At NetDirector, the belief is in transparency and clear communication regarding security so that the boost in compliance and efficiency is ultimately passed along to the firms and servicers participating in the integration network.

NetDirector Launches Powerful Integration with Equator® for Orders and Deliverables

Tampa, FL – May 9, 2017 – NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has spent several months working alongside Equator, the leading provider of default software solutions for servicers, real estate agents, vendors and other mortgage and real estate industry professionals. The work has yielded a powerful zero-footprint integration option for default servicing firms utilizing Equator.

Equator’s infrastructure software as a service (iSaaS) solutions include EQ Workstation®, EQ Marketplace®, Midsource™ and EQAgent®/EQVendor® portals, which can be used a la carte or as an end-to-end solution. Equator’s REO, short sale and loss mitigation modules processed over $21 billion in transactions in 2015, and have processed more than $315 billion in transactions since its inception. Currently, 4 of the top 5 U.S servicers and the largest holder of real estate are on the Equator platform. With such a high volume of mortgage banking transactions taking place with Equator, it was an easy next step for NetDirector to develop the one-to-many style integration that has fueled their integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) business model tailored to the Equator platform.

“NetDirector has worked very closely with us to not only develop, but to thoroughly test this powerful integration suite for default servicing attorneys,” said James N. Vinci, Chief Technology Officer of the Equator business. “We’re excited to collaborate with them, and we believe this collaboration will generate serious efficiency for attorney firms utilizing Equator.”

The initial integration launch includes “Orders” and “Deliverables”, which resemble the referrals and events that are utilized by other industry standard software interfaces in the default servicing sphere. The “Deliverables” also allow for certain documents to be uploaded and other transactions and processes are on the table for future development. Automating these transactions through a cloud-based integration platform provides increases to efficiency through reduced data entry and automated processes. It also significantly reduces the labor stresses of developing and maintaining the integration internally at the attorney’s cost.

“Our ecosystem continues to expand with yet another powerhouse in the industry as we welcome Equator as a new participant,” said Harry Beisswenger, NetDirector CEO. “Our goal is to provide the integrations to default servicing firms that offer the most value, and there has been a major demand for this service. We look forward to the prospect of further data and document integration with the Equator platform in the future.”
