*It’s All About Results*
**By Tony Garritano**
***Technology makes a difference. I always like to tell you about success stories. In this case, Global DMS, a provider of Web-based compliant valuation management software, announced that Appraisal Nation, one of the country’s fastest growing national appraisal management companies (AMCs), reported that since implementing Global DMS’ eTrac platform it has increased the number of appraisals it was able to process by more than tenfold.
****Global DMS’ solution streamlined Appraisal Nation’s entire valuation process, created newfound efficiencies, established ease of doing business and ensures the company is in compliance at all times. Appraisal Nation relies on Global DMS’ eTrac platform as a single-source solution for assigning, tracking, reviewing and delivering appraisals to the Uniform Collateral Data Portal (UCDP) in full compliance, and without errors or missing information for both the residential and commercial aspects of its business.
****“Appraisal Nation’s customer service has always been exceptional. Our unwavering commitment to clients is seen in everything from customized solutions to our extended service hours (8 a.m. to 9 p.m. EDT),” stated Michael Tedesco, CEO of Appraisal Nation. “But it was the addition of Global DMS that has been instrumental in rapidly expanding our business; we couldn’t have achieved this accelerated rate of growth without their technology. Global DMS’ integration into multiple mainstream LOSs has helped us to compete and win against some of the largest AMCs in country. Using Global DMS, we’ve become a finely tuned AMC operation. Our customer service is now backed with top technology and when you add that to our already established reputation of producing quality appraisals expeditiously, it truly sets us apart from the competition.
****Global DMS’ Web-based eTrac system allows AMCs to manage appraisal vendors, order, assign, monitor status, fulfill, review, sell, report on and handle accounting practices for appraisal transactions. The solution keeps organizations apace of constantly changing appraisal rules, thus allowing them to avoid potential fines.
****“The tremendous success that Appraisal Nation is having using our valuation management platform is a testament to the efficiencies our solution brings to the table,” says Vladimir Bien-Aime, president and CEO of Global DMS. “Appraisal Nation is one of many client success stories we have that showcase the positive impact our solution delivers.”
