ISGN Corporation has launched a new smartphone application for its Gators browser-based settlement services and vendor management system designed to assist appraisers, title abstractors and closing agents out in the field. The app soon will be available for the iPhone at the Apple Store where it can be downloaded. ISGN also plans to support apps for the Android phone, the Blackberry and other smartphone platforms. The app enables the vendor to accept, decline or update orders while out in the field providing more efficient use of their time. The smartphone app replaces multiple manual tools for appraisers, such as note pads, voice recorders and cameras. The app guides the appraiser through the necessary process required to complete a home inspection by organizing the information and photos of the interior and exterior of the home. In addition, the app also can organize the information and photos needed for the three comparable homes required for an appraisal.
The Gators smartphone app can organize the appraisal report, generating significant time and cost savings for appraisers. With the app, appraisers at the end of the day can upload appraisal data for the appraisal report, including photos and voice recorded comments from their smartphones to their office computer or ISGN’s global processing facilities and the next morning receive back the completed appraisal report allowing appraisers more time out in the field.
“Gators new smartphone app can create huge time savings for appraisers. The app is very detailed and walks appraisers out in the field through what photos and information are required for the report, including comps,” said Ankush Dham, director of technology solutions for ISGN Corporation. “With the app, appraisers don’t have to come back into the office to accept or deny appraisal orders, greatly enhancing productivity in the field.”
