Solutions for every part
of the loan life cycle

 

 

Choose the North Shore software modules that suit your business needs, keep the existing systems that are working for you… and North Shore will provide one, total, integrated solution for your operation.

Customer/Third Party Portal

The white-label, externally-facing component of the North Shore platform that, like the main system, can be configured, customized, and integrated with your current environment. It can be accessed as a stand-alone site, or it can be integrated into your central CRM site/system.

Borrowers and brokers can do initial inquiries, submit applications, and login to monitor their pipeline and deal status.

Third parties such as appraisers and inspectors, and contracted personnel, can also use the Portal to enter data and/or submit their reports and upload files/data. Advanced file-upload capabilities, coupled with an intelligent shared Checklist, make document sharing easy and drastically reduce cycle times.

And, finally, production personnel can use the Portal to view their personal pipeline, monitor deal statuses, and lead the Borrower through the process of submitting information through the Portal.

Loan Origination

North Shore’s industry-leading Origination module tracks every aspect of a new loan, from lead to closing. It can be implemented as a stand-alone LOS, with lead information coming in from a CRM tool on the front-end, and the loan being passed on to another system/entity on the back-end after closing, or it can be implemented along with the North Shore Asset & Portfolio Management module, in which case the client realizes the added value of front-end and back-end being the same system.

In addition to handling all origination processes and all types of commercial and CRE credit and debt investments, the module utilizes the underlying BRE, Doc Prep, API’s, and customer-facing Portal to capture ALL data related to a deal and to provide ALL of the output required for ALL internal and external entities involved.

Asset & Portfolio Management

Used in conjunction with our Origination and Servicing modules, or with your existing systems, the North Shore Asset & Portfolio Management module provides the ideal platform for housing your loans for servicing them and for tracking and aggregating performance data on the underlying assets.

A comprehensive database, state-of-the-art data capture capabilities, workflow automation, complete reporting and document preparation, and, most importantly, an underlying Business Rules Engine (BRE) make up the platform. Data is fed automatically from borrower documents, appraisals, and inspections, so capacity is increased, transcription error rates go down, and surveillance is improved.

Powerful, easy-to-use Dashboard Design Tools allow you to build personalized views of the asset and loan data, see real-time statistics, manage workloads, and get alerted to any condition. The Business Rules (BRE) drive the tasks of notifying borrowers, surveying the portfolio, and kicking out credit exceptions & alerts related to delinquencies or maturities.

Filtering & ad-hoc reporting tools give you unlimited slice-and-dice capabilities to view the portfolio from all perspectives, build asset management work queues, feed other reporting and presentation tools, and extract data for use elsewhere.
