PLANO, Texas--(Mortgage Contracting Services LLC (MCS), a nationwide provider of property preservation, inspections and REO property maintenance to the financial services industry, today announced an expansion of its mobile technology toolset. These additional tools will provide vendors with several mobile field services applications that work across multiple devices and systems.)--
“We understand that information can be transmitted more accurately and timely to our clients and their investors with the use of mobile devices. By leveraging enhancements in mobile technology, it allows us to receive real-time information, which ultimately helps us protect and preserve properties and communities across the nation.”
Caroline Reaves, chief executive officer of Mortgage Contracting Services, said, “We understand that information can be transmitted more accurately and timely to our clients and their investors with the use of mobile devices. By leveraging enhancements in mobile technology, it allows us to receive real-time information, which ultimately helps us protect and preserve properties and communities across the nation.”
The effort is twofold: MCS has developed MCS Mobility, a proprietary mobile photo management tool that is integrated solely with MCS360, a Web-based technology platform used by MCS along with its clients and vendors to manage inspections, property preservations and REO services. Additionally, MCS is announcing that Mobile Business Concepts, a Georgia-based company that creates software and mobile business applications, has been named a preferred MCS vendor and will offer an MCS Web services integrated version of its mobile application, REO Photo.
MCS Mobility is HTML5-based and made freely available to MCS vendors. It enables vendors to upload photos to the cloud and to MCS360 directly from their mobile device. This reduces the time needed to process orders while also improving quality by providing real-time photo review capabilities. This application is in limited release to select MCS vendors and will soon be available to its entire vendor network.
REO Photo enables jobs to be assigned to contractors, then tracked as tasks are fulfilled and documented with the inclusion of photos. Every job profile, sorted by status, displays property condition details, location by address and work orders with their associated deadlines. Vendor photos are stamped with the date and time, and can be shared in real time to document progress before, during and after each service. Vendors have the ability to obtain directions to each property and report issues via phone or email without leaving the app. MCS vendors may download subscription-based REO Photo on iTunes and in the App Store.
