Every software application has an origin story; many developed to meet a deficiency in the marketplace.
EarlyResolution was built by a consortium of top mortgage servicers several years ago to solve two major challenges in the industry; providing consistent treatment across portfolios and allowing servicers to manage their business rules without required code changes. The ability for servicers to quickly react to internal and external events via configuration has helped EarlyResolution clients navigate the 2008 housing crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic and many natural disasters.
The disturbing effects of storms, floods, heatwaves, severe cold, droughts and wildfires are ever-present across TV news and social media channels. Loan servicers need to react quickly when these disasters occur. Assistance options must be offered within days and pushed out to customers via all available channels.
The traditional reaction to a natural disaster in the loan servicing industry is to create special swat teams, often utilizing inexperienced resources who require extensive training to manage these crises.
EarlyResolution allows servicers to quickly identify customers who may be impacted and streamline their experience to get them the help they need as soon as possible. Suppose a wildfire breaks out in a region of Australia. Within a few days, EarlyResolution clients can deploy special business rules that route customers to a payment holiday assistance plan in minutes instead of waiting to talk to the servicer’s specialty team.
It’s a more modern, realistic and immediate way of using existing business rules and highlights the flexibility and sheer scalability of the EarlyResolution platform.

Loan servicers are acutely aware of the impact that falling short of the ever-changing regulatory requirements can have. Following the 2008 housing crisis, most regulatory agencies framed their missions around making sure customers were being treated fairly and that banks and other loan servicers acted according to the letter of the law.
