Global DMS, a provider of Web-based compliant valuation management software, and Collateral Analytics, a provider of real estate analytics and valuation products, have formed a strategic alliance that integrated various components of their software valuation solutions. From within Global DMS’ single-source eTrac Enterprise platform, which compliantly handles the entire appraisal management process, users can now access Collateral Analytics’ products and services that include its automated valuation model (AVM) services, data analytics products and risk management solutions.

“There are many factors that must be taken into account in order to determine accurate property valuations and reporting in today’s market,” states Vladimir Bien-Aime, president and CEO of Global DMS.  “This new partnership extends to our customer base Collateral Analytics’ sophisticated data analysis capabilities that produces precise reports on valuations, market analytics and risk scores.”

Collateral Analytics’ AVM service provides highly accurate property value estimates with supporting data for forecasting and decisioning; its data analytics products also report on historical and current home price trends as well as forecast future trends and market condition.  In addition, the company’s risk assessment tool, CA Risk Profiler, determines the probability of valuation risk for BPOs and appraisals based on the use of numerous data points.

“Global DMS has done a tremendous job in building a platform to bring automation and compliance to the entire valuation management process for organizations operating in the appraisal business,” said Michael Sklarz, president and CEO, Collateral Analytics.   “Our solutions complement one another well and make for a robust offering that can be seamlessly accessed by Global DMS customers. We are very pleased to have established such a strong partnership with Global DMS.”
