Market Analysis: We All Need A Good Laugh Once In A While

*We All Need A Laugh Once In A While*
**By Tony Garritano**

***Let’s face it, things aren’t great going into the holidays. But that doesn’t mean that your spirits should be low. Here’s something to cheer you up: Mortgage Cadence, LLC has produced a series of short films under the guise of “The Lender Blender” to the public. This series of shorts irreverently illustrates the dangers that come with mismanaged processes in the midst of an industry overhaul.

****Contrary to the light-hearted nature of these films, Mortgage Cadence is a solution-oriented system that continuously seeks to help lenders increase their return on investment and bottom line while maintaining compliance. The film portrayals of disarray and lack of compliance serve as a magnifying glass on some of the issues facing lenders today. Mortgage Cadence’s technology platform helps lenders minimize risk through the use of advanced technology. The product suite is proven to increase employee productivity through the elimination of paper and the creation of custom data-driven workflows.

****Along with a modern sense of humor, the videos strive to highlight the asset Mortgage Cadence can be for companies struggling with their lending processes. “The need for workflow automation to streamline processes and reduce risk is more important now than ever before,” stated John Levonick, chief legal and compliance officer for Mortgage Cadence. “Outdated processes and lack of compliance is unsuitable for a sustainable business where the risk of buybacks has never been greater. Despite the comedic nature of The Lender Blender, I hope it inspires lenders to reevaluate their lending practices to determine how they can increase efficiency while ensuring compliance.”

****By offering seamless automated workflow that is not only efficient and dynamic but also comes with a team of dedicated legal resources and subject matter experts, Mortgage Cadence can take your business from merely surviving to thriving. Staying compliant with the most recent regulations can feel like an added pressure, which is precisely why we are dedicated to focusing on the rules so you can focus on growing your business.
