Tavant Announces the Launch of a New Product to Its AI-powered Touchless Lending® Platform

Businesswire | May 02, 2023

Tavant, Silicon Valley’s leading digital lending solutions provider, today announced the launch of a highly anticipated new product, Asset Analysis, to Touchless Lending®, their AI-powered digital lending platform. With this addition, Touchless Lending will further solidify itself as the most comprehensive automated underwriting solution available to mortgage lenders by providing coverage over all four major underwriting components, including Income, Credit, Collateral, and soon Asset Analysis. Touchless Lending Asset Analysis is in the near-final stages of production and will be available in-market by the end of June 2023. “This upcoming launch of Touchless Lending Asset Analysis will perfectly complement our currently available underwriting products – Document, Income, Credit, Collateral, and Decision Analysis – and put Tavant one step closer to achieving our goal of enabling straight-through processing and fully automated underwriting for mortgage providers,” said Mohammad Rashid, Head of Fintech Innovation at Tavant. “Our current Touchless Lending products reduce the cost to process and underwrite by $1000 per loan and achieve a scale of double-digit underwrites per day per underwriter. With Asset Analysis fitting in as the final piece, Touchless Lending will be capable of having even more of an impact on reducing cycle times and origination costs for lenders.” Asset Analysis automates an underwriter’s labor-intensive process of reviewing assets and multiple bank statements, allowing them to accurately ensure that the borrower’s assets are responsibly sourced and quickly determine the likelihood that the borrower will have sufficient funds to cover down payments, closing costs, and reserves for the mortgage transaction. Asset Analysis checks for relevant loan details and document acceptability to identify and condition for large deposits or deposits from sources that are inconsistent with the loan application. Furthermore, AI and ML models are integrated into Asset Analysis to automatically review bank statement withdrawal transactions to detect, identify, and condition for anomalies, undisclosed financial transactions, or any recurring payments in the statements. “Touchless Lending Asset Analysis will identify, calculate, then determine borrower eligibility and derive qualified income across bank statements based on the investor or program-specific requirements,” said Hemanthkumar Jambulingam, Director of Fintech Product Management at Tavant. Touchless Lending provides straight-through mortgage processing and automated underwriting as part of the end-to-end mortgage manufacturing pipeline. Loan officers, processors, and underwriters utilize Touchless Lending’s machine-oriented, optimized workflows to engage with borrower and property data to make better decisions faster instead of relying on physical documentation and manual data entry. This one-of-a-kind solution automates the loan production process, allowing lenders to originate mortgages quicker while reducing costs and repurchasing risks. Touchless Lending also effortlessly integrates with existing systems, including client CRM, POS, and LOS. “Tavant offers the flexibility for lenders to determine whether they want to benefit from the whole Touchless Lending automation suite or instead choose one or a few analyses independently of the others,” continued Rashid. “Even if using all that Touchless Lending has to offer is guaranteed to generate higher productivity and efficiency than using only a portion of the platform, we understand that every lender is unique, and at Tavant, we are here to help you identify the optimal path to accommodate your specific needs.” As a leading Fintech software and solutions provider for over 20 years, Tavant proactively anticipates customer needs and adjusts accordingly to provide the right configurable solutions. Tavant's Touchless Lending® product suite, which now includes experiences not just for underwriters and processors but also for home buyers, loan officers, brokers, realtors, and more, maximizes data-driven decision-making to solve even the most complex lender and borrower challenges. Tavant's growing customer base originates one out of every three home loans in the United States. About Tavant Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, Tavant is a digital products and solutions company that provides impactful results to its customers across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

Brown Harris Stevens Maximizes Agent Productivity With AI-Powered Cloze CRM

Businesswire | March 27, 2023

Cloze, an AI-based intelligence provider focused on the real estate market, announced today that Brown Harris Stevens (BHS), the premier privately held real estate brokerage, has successfully rolled out Cloze CRM as part of its market-leading BHSOne initiative. Within just six weeks, adoption of Cloze CRM has overachieved its initial targets, driven initially by a highly successful internal marketing campaign that itself used Cloze, and fueled further by agent-to-agent recommendations from early adopters. “We looked at many different CRMs, and Cloze gave us three clear reasons why it was the only partner for us,” said Matthew Leone, chief marketing officer at Brown Harris Stevens. “First, there was no barrier to entry. We were amazed at how easy it was to log in, create an account, and get onboarded. Second, you can access all of its functionality through its mobile application—our agents are in front of their phones 100% of the time. And finally, the integration of artificial intelligence was a game changer. We’ve seen how it can as a virtual assistant suggest the proper prospecting steps and touchpoints with everyone in their sphere of influence leading to a higher engagement rate.” In contrast to typical CRMs that expect agents to constantly update and log their activities and contacts into the system, Cloze silently manages that busywork in the background without disrupting an agent’s daily workflows. Through the insights extracted from agent communications, Cloze CRM flags action items and due dates and recommends how, when, and why to reach out to new and previous clients, highlighting special events, birthdays, or anniversaries, for example, or bubbling up contacts that could benefit from outreach. “Cloze is by far the best CRM I have ever used,” described Holly Smith, an agent affiliated with BHS’ Palm Beach office. “The AI features are amazing. It reminds you each morning who you need to follow up with, logs and attaches all calls and emails to a contact, and even writes emails for you with AI.” As part of an internal use case, BHS’ marketing team used Cloze to increase email engagement rates from 10-20% to 80-100% by delivering customized, relevant content to each of the brokerage’s 2,500+ agents. Such customization was made possible because Cloze combines a robust template library with automated processes and AI-generated insights, making it simple to provide highly customized content relevant to each recipient and to do so at scale. The result has been the ability to reach more people in less time with more authenticity. “Our goal was to provide a tool that would make our agents and managers more efficient in communicating while helping them keep on top of tasks, even as they’re managing multiple deals at different points in the home-buying process,” explained BHS CTO Chris Reyes. “Cloze not only met those expectations, but exceeded them.” For more information on how BHS agents are deriving value from Cloze CRM, check out the case study and video interview at About Cloze Cloze’s artificial intelligence (AI)-powered real estate platform translates everyday communications into actionable insights that brokerages and their agents use to close more deals, drive higher revenue, and increase profitability. Cloze achieves this by strengthening relationships, reducing manual work, driving a more consistent lead-to-close experience, and improving both marketing ROI and overall closure rates. Cloze’s full suite of real estate solutions includes Cloze CRM, Cloze Marketing, Cloze Leads, and Cloze AI Insights.
