has announced a key element to their continued focus of increasing efficiencies in the valuation sector. Valucentric currently utilizes its own proprietary management portal, ENGAGE, to efficiently execute their robust flow of valuation products and services.
To better facilitate order and information flow with numerous clients, ENGAGE is now integrated with Appraisal Firewall, a technology solution for mortgage lenders to manage their own appraisal process.
“We are strongly committed to applying technology advances to our daily business workflow as evidenced by our on-going efforts to create increased synergies with our direct-engagement clients,” said Valucentric Executive Member Jason Goldberg. “The Appraisal Firewall integration, along with recently completed integrations with Mercury Network, InHouse Connexions and other industry leaders in platform management, only strengthens our position as a single-source, direct provider of Valuation services in both the Residential and Commercial sectors.”
Valucentric’s expansion will continue in concert with core client needs. In addition to organic growth, Valucentric is currently in discussions with other existing successful firms to join the unique business model.
“Since its inception in 2007, Appraisal Firewall has always been an ardent supporter of independent appraisers,” said Dave Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of SharperLending LLC, the company behind the Appraisal Firewall technology. “We believe that overall appraisal quality increases when lenders work with their known and trusted appraisers. Valucentric shares our belief, which brings velocity to the business relationship and can lead to a fundamentally healthier appraisal industry. We are honored to integrate our Appraisal Firewall software into the Valucentric Engage system and are excited to bring additional process efficiency and quality to real estate appraisal transactions.”
