In 2020, the company’s loan originators have an automated workflow system coupled with training and development that, under Pierce’s watch, has allowed Better’s loan officers to outpace the industry by 1,216%. Pierce’s efforts in automation also benefit customers, who close with the company in 21 days versus the industry average of 42 days. The result: increased accuracy, reduced costs for the customer and revenue gains for Better.com.
