Mortgage servicers are looking for more ways to automate and innovate processes in order to lower costs, increase efficiencies and revamp the life of a loan. Proctor Financial provides mortgage servicers a host of solutions for insurance tracking operations with a unique blend of automation and human intervention to ensure timely and accurate insurance policy tracking.
Proctor's risk-management programs protect commercial, residential, mobile home, condominium and REO properties. These programs include:
- Mortgage Guard: Lender-placed hazard and optional premises liability
- Bridge60: Lender-placed flood
- REO Guard: Real Estate Owned hazard and optional premises liability
- Portfolio Guard: Blanket hazard
- EquiShield: Blanket home equity
- KwikRisk: Hard-to-place property program
- Mortgage Impairment: Errors and omissions
- Excess Flood
- Investor/ REO Rental Program: Provides property and liability coverage for portfolios of residential rental properties held by financial institutions, property investors, REITs and other real estate capital companies
“These services, coupled with Proctor’s proprietary tracking system, Intelligent Insurance Manager (IIM), relieve clients’ administrative burden for a complaint, streamlined insurance management program,” Mike Cox, CEO of Proctor said.
IIM was created to prevent borrower harm. Servicers utilizing IIM will benefit from a system capable of identifying insurance exposures and intelligently correcting them with compliant lender-placed practices.
With one click, clients can perform independent vendor management tasks to ensure their outsourced insurance tracking program is performing properly. This accessibility is vital when a servicer is audited.
Proctor’s process includes a rules-based tasking workflow for policy procurement, document/mail processing and disbursement processing.
“This gives our teammates optics on those particular conditions, which require special attention and assists our teams in ordering work with intelligent prioritization,” Cox said.
Compliance, technology, IT security and borrower experience remain top concerns for servicers. Proctor is able to maintain clients’ compliance through each of its programs along with its robust infrastructure to ensure system uptime and enable nimble change management.
Proctor will continue to invest in technology in 2019, focusing on advancing the client and borrower experience through new products and services.
“Our Client Technology team is currently building a robust borrower communication portal to manage and track loan information and activities, redesigning Proctor’s lender-placed insourcing administrative program and strengthening the automation process,” Cox said. “In addition, we are introducing an HOA lien tracking service.”
Proctor continues to create and implement enhancements that facilitate lender-placed insurance administration for mortgage lenders while remaining within a regulatory compliant, secure environment focused on borrower satisfaction.
“Tracking insurance can be a costly administrative burden for mortgage servicers,” Cox said. “When servicers elect to outsource their insurance tracking operation to Proctor, they elect a compliant program that delivers a borrower-focused, benefits-driven insurance and risk management solution.”
