1. Integrates with Existing Systems

Depository banks operate within a complex ecosystem of financial services, often relying on core banking platforms and loan origination systems (LOSs) like Encompass. 

This reliance mandates that new technology under consideration for your tech stack, such as a point-of-sale system, seamlessly integrate with leading systems and certainly those already in use by the depository for appraisal, credit, doc prep, pricing, verifications, and much more. This integration ensures the technologies will work together so you gain the benefits of streamlining workflows, enhancing operational efficiency, and amplifying the return on investment of existing technology investments. 

2. Provides Operational Efficiency

Enhancing operational efficiency calls for streamlining various processes and systems within a bank to achieve optimal productivity and revenue while simultaneously minimizing costs and errors. The pursuit of efficiency should be evident in every aspect of your operations, especially when implementing tech, whether it's shortening the time it takes to initiate a mortgage or facilitating quicker and smoother interactions for customers with your technology and staff.
