Pinnacle IT Development, a provider of technology to the financial services industry, has announced that Trilogy Commercial Lending has launched phase one of the Commercial Automated Underwriting System (CAUS) to their small-balance commercial lending clients.

This first phase of what will be a comprehensive Web-based automated underwriting system specifically for small-balance commercial lending includes the Prequal Loan Quote function coupled with a real-time pricing engine. The upfront guesswork, typical to small-balance commercial lending, is a thing of the past. Now users receive an accurate debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) calculation, real-time pricing and a transaction-specific requirements list.

"As a Web-based system, CAUS is available to our clients on-demand," said Sean Brogan, Trilogy Commercial Lending president. "It empowers brokers and community banks to make confident business decisions and commitments to their customers at the beginning of the transaction. The Prequal Loan Option and pricing engine allows our clients to provide their customers with ease of execution and quick delivery."

The volume of small balance commercial loans is projected to be $200 billion in 2008; up 154 percent from the 2004 level of $130 billion. Mortgage Brokers and community banks seeking a profit-niche opportunity outside of the unstable residential lending market are embracing the underserved small-balance commercial real estate segment. The CAUS allows newcomers to enter this market space intelligently and confidently without fear of compromising loan origination and referral relationships.

Currently, community and mid-sized banks are under more pressure from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to avoid high concentrations of commercial loans to maintain more adequate loan loss reserves and aggressive credit risk-management practices. CAUS allows these institutions to eliminate subjectivity from the approval process and ensure that underwriting standards are in compliance.

"In the 90s, automated underwriting systems changed the face of residential lending in terms of uniform risk assessment, accurate pricing and regulatory compliance," said Erik Rowan, president of Pinnacle IT Development. "We've matched the business needs of the small-balance commercial market with the technology necessary for prudent lending practices."
