StreetLinks announces 'SANDRA' automated order assignmentMortgagePress.comStreetLinks, SANDRA, appraisal, Tony Ebeyer, Assignment Notification ans Direct Response Assistant, Steve Haslam StreetLinks National Appraisal Services announces a new automated assignment process. When an order is placed with StreetLinks, an automated phone call is placed to the best qualified appraiser in the area allowing for faster acceptance and scheduling of the appraisal. Coupled with StreetLinks ability to accommodate and process point of sale appraisal pre-pay, this creates the most streamlined order assignment process in the Appraisal Management industry. Tony Ebeyer, StreetLinks COO stated, "We have developed our StreetLinks Assignment Notification & Direct Response Assistant (SANDRA) to automate and accelerate the initial order acceptance. We still utilize our assignment algorithm that assigns orders to the best historical performers in the field. Once the order is assigned, the appraiser receives both an immediate e-mail and fax notification. Now they will also receive a phone call from SANDRA. This is just one more step in reaching the appraiser and setting appointments as quickly as possible." StreetLinks CEO, Steve Haslam, explained, "SANDRA is just one piece of our overall turn-time solution. Most mortgage companies are not in a position to collect credit card or e-check information for borrowers to pre-pay their appraisal. Our process secures the homeowner's commitment by collecting payment upfront. It also eliminates appraisal fee accounting for the lender and guarantees the homeowner a quick and accurate appointment. SANDRA benefits both the homeowner and the loan officer by getting the order committed, assigned and scheduled faster." SANDRA has been fully tested and is currently operational. This technology allows StreetLinks to remain an industry leader in turn time, customer service and innovation. For more information, visit
