National Mortgage Professional Magazine recently caught up with Alok Bansal, managing director of Visionet Systems, to find out what title agents can do to stay competitive in the tough business conditions and how the predictability of operations can help them deliver better service to their clientele.
What is the need of predictability in title operations and why should title agents care?
With unanticipated swings in mortgage volume, most title agencies face a tricky challenge of choosing between the execution of capability and profitability. The capacity to fulfill bulk orders can become a major bottleneck to do more business.
The bulk search requirements present a unique dilemma to the title agents. They need to make a quick decision on whether they are going to service the request or leave the opportunity, as they do not have enough bandwidth to pursue it. As timeliness and quality is of the utmost essence, taking on a project with low preparedness will mostly result in poor delivery. This can cause loss of client relationships and the eventual damage of one’s reputation. Only title agents with predictability in their title operations can confidently take on more business without worrying about whether they will be able to deliver.
What can title agents do to ensure predictability in their operations?
Alok Bansal: Title agents should invest in building capable partner relationships so that they can rely on them to deliver on time and within budget. Engagement models of working with vendors should be designed to keep predictability and associated costs in mind. Vendors should ideally deliver seamless scaling, up/down of operations, with minimal overhead costs.
Apart from partner relations, investments in technology can make life easier for title agents. Software solutions can help automate the complete process while meeting industry regulations. Solutions can also be customized to meet specific business requirements. Moreover, automated technology solutions ensure a zero-error transaction, thereby eliminating the hassles of manual corrections, which can be fairly time-consuming.
