LUXEMBOURG, May 4, 2017 – Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (“Altisource”) (NASDAQ: ASPS), a leading provider of real estate, mortgage and technology services, today announced the expansion of the Vendorly TM platform, an innovative vendor oversight platform for financial institutions. The platform launched l ast year exclusively for members of the Lenders One ® Cooperative, a national alliance of independent mo rtgage bankers, and is now available to the broader mortgage and community bankers market o utside of the Lenders One network. The Vendorly platform is designed to help streamline ve ndor due diligence, document maintenance, monitoring and audits.
The scrutiny of vendor oversight practices continue s to be a focus of regulators. It’s important for mortgage and community bankers to have a multif aceted vendor oversight program. Through the Vendorly platform, and its vendor oversight off erings, Vendorly can help strengthen its customers’ compliance management framework and incr ease their operational efficiencies. Vendorly offers managed vendor oversight services, including due diligence, document management, annual assessments, information securit y assessments, financial condition reviews and on-site audits.
Vendorly is announcing collaboration with Secure In sight, an innovator in the mortgage industry in providing settlement agent risk evaluation, rati ng, monitoring and database reporting on fully vetted mortgage closing professionals. Currently se rvicing close to 100 clients nationwide, Secure Insight will deliver real-time risk ratings and related settlement agent data to clients through the Vendorly platform. Together, Secure Ins ight and Vendorly intend to develop a platform that produces a transaction-based tool wit h risk data on each transaction prior to a closing (and just before the proceeds are wired). I t is expected that this process will provide data in a more efficient, streamlined manner and give le nders greater comfort in the protection of their money, documents and consumer data at each closing.
“Our relationship with Secure Insight allows us to leverage their deep expertise in settlement agent oversight and industry-leading database of ov er 50,000 vetted and rated agents, which has been a decade in the making,” said Jim Vaca, vice p resident, Vendorly. “With Vendorly, we’ve developed an easy-to-use platform for delivering st ronger vendor management across all vendor types.
