For too many years, lenders have had to accept certain things that should be, well, unacceptable.
We’re on a mission to change that by disrupting the status quo.
At Servicing Solutions, we dare to imagine, experiment and innovate to deliver superior service. Our goal is simple – to bring ingenuity, talent, know how, analytics and a technological advantage to an industry ripe for change. Servicing Solutions is on a mission to redefine portfolio servicing for good by changing the transactional client experience to one that is more collaborative, relational and transparent.
Our executive management team averages 25+ years working together. The upper and mid-level management teams have worked together on average 15+ years. All members of the leadership team have walked in your shoes. We’ve serviced our “own” portfolios at several different organizations and understand the challenges and opportunities your organization faces.
We have serviced portfolios experiencing hyper growth and have turned around many underperforming portfolios. We leverage our experience to implement best practices with an appropriate blend of new and emergent technologies. This includes world-class data and analytics balanced with the appropriate amount of human capital. As a result, our clients benefit from a fresh approach to loan servicing that is focused fully on the overall customer journey and the bottom line.
