Equator (EQ), a provider of default servicing solutions, has announced that more than $100 billion in assets have been sold through its platform since 2003, and more than 500,000 short sales have been initiated since its launch of the industry's first comprehensive automated short sale solution last year. "This quarter was very busy, with many lenders and servicers looking to adopt proven technology solutions in anticipation of the increased volumes and compliance that 2011 will bring," said Chief Executive Officer Chris Saitta. According to its fourth quarter report, Equator continues to see substantial growth with its Short Sales and HAFA solutions. "Our Short Sale and HAFA Workstations continue to provide servicers with a viable foreclosure alternative by generating faster responses and decisions, thereby offering impressive cost savings," said Chief Operating Officer John Vella.

Equator also plans to offer several new modules in 2011 which will seamlessly interface with existing modules to offer a best in class, end-to-end default suite to assist servicers with upcoming inventories. Founded in 2003, Equator is a provider of software solutions for the default servicing industry. Three of the top five financial institutions currently use Equator’s platform.
