The Look And Feel Of Technology Matters

Legacy technology is old and outdated, yet it permitted our industry. Technology has to have a great GUI these days to help our industry progress and good vendors realize this. For example, Exceleras, creator of the DispoSolutions Real Estate Owned (REO), ValueSolutions Collateral Valuation and ClearView Offer Management platforms, has released another regular software update on schedule. This time, software engineers and UX experts at Exceleras made application-wide updates to the look and feel of the company’s software. The company also added some functionality to further increase the power of custom tasks.

“The new look and feel was a significant update for us, since so many pages were affected,” said Amy Bergseth, Chief Operating Officer for Exceleras. “In this first push of a multi-part update to further improve the interface of our software products, all of our system’s pages have been updated with a new look and feel. Changes include new color schemes, alignment changes, heading updates, and improvements to many other elements across the system. As changes have been cosmetic only, all users will find the location of all pages, links and information unchanged. So far, feedback has been good.”

Bergseth said that eventually nearly every page of its existing software will be updated to meet the new design esthetic, which will improve the user’s experience. In addition, the new page design will be completely mobile ready. Because Exceleras develops, updates and maintains all of the software it offers to the market, it makes frequent updates and releases them to customers on a set schedule.

Minor enhancements included in the most recent release include the addition of an option to adjust custom task re-occurrence at launch and a new menu to specify a category for  uploaded documents. The custom task functionality has become more important as new DispoSolutions users are coming from new parts of the business and managing more vendors than default servicers have in the past.
“Once primarily a tool used by servicers dealing with REO disposition, DispoSolutions has evolved into a powerful asset management system that has been embraced by  investors, community-based organizations, property managers and others who need to manage real estate portfolios,” said Exceleras President and CEO Michael Harris. “Because this evolution has tracked with our customer’s changing requirements, we found the need to update our design across the entire application. The pages look great, they’re easy to use and our customers love them. I’m very proud of our development team and the work they are doing.”
