CSC Teams with Quandis to Offer Expanded Mortgage Default Management Services08:00 EST Tuesday, February 28, 2012 FALLS CHURCH, Va. (Business Wire) -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced it has teamed with Quandis to offer CSC's EarlyResolution clients and prospects a new short sale tracking and fulfillment portal to accelerate processing cycles. This benefits consumers who wish to sell their homes instead of foreclosing and reduces losses for mortgage investors. EarlyResolution is CSC's lending default management system, which, together with the complementary functionality from Quandis, will enhance coordination across the entire mortgage loss mitigation life cycle, including short sales, helping mortgage servicers to improve communications and provide a single point of contact for borrowers. Under the agreement, CSC and Quandis will build and maintain a Web-based data exchange interface to facilitate short sale offers between servicers, agents, borrowers and investors in one platform. Through the Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, users can coordinate time-sensitive information and provide a single audit trail from initial borrower contact through short sale plan completion. The interface will improve operating efficiencies and reduce short sale case cycle times, increasing the probability of short sale approval. “Short sales are becoming more prevalent as the mortgage delinquency pipeline moves from retention toward litigation,” says Scott Stoddard, chief executive officer of Quandis. “Approximately 30 percent of short sale requests conclude with the sale of the home, and we are looking to significantly increase this percentage through our collaboration with CSC, thereby reducing the likelihood of foreclosure for borrowers in default.” “This joint effort offers servicers a sophisticated and flexible short sale processing and tracking system that will improve loss mitigation decision-making and short sale results,” says John Dickson, president of CSC's Banking and Credit Services Division. “EarlyResolution clients gain a highly secure, integrated tool to improve the short sale fulfillment ratio and enhance multi-party communication.” EarlyResolution is a leading consumer lending default management solution offered in a SaaS environment. In use by the top three U.S. mortgage servicers, EarlyResolution assists in finding effective solutions when borrowers are in default, improves collections and loss mitigation operating efficiency, and helps servicers react quickly to regulatory and other changes.
