Safeguard Properties helps launch new code compliance company
Safeguard Properties, in conjunction with default servicing industry veteran Brandon Kirkham, recently launched a new company that streamlines communication between mortgage servicers and code enforcement officers. Compliance Connection, which is based in Plano, Texas, is an online network where servicers can connect directly with municipalities across the country to address code enforcement issues. Code violations are delivered electronically to involved parties, reducing the amount of time between when the notification is sent and when it is received. Compliance Connection doubles as a workflow management platform, as it tracks every violation sent across the system. Kirkham said Compliance Connection offers servicers a way to increase productivity while maintaining quality control. He is president of the company. "Compliance Connections vastly improves the ability of servicers and municipalities to handle growing volumes of properties," Kirkham said. "It offers an easier, more efficient way to delivering code violations and manage the communication and workflow to abate them more quickly." Safeguard Properties entered into a business partnership with the brand new firm. Safeguard is a property preservation company based in Valley View, Ohio. The firm employs 825 people, as well as has a network of more than 10,000 contractors nationwide. Write to Christine Ricciardi. Follow her on Twitter @HWnewbieCR.
