Innovation leaders for appraisal management collaborate to make Canadian Appraisers more Efficient
RED DEER, AB, March 7, 2017 /CNW/ - ANOW (Appraisal Now) the leader in software for appraisal offices is pleased to announce a new initiative with FNF Canada to help appraisers save time in their day to day operations. ANOW will be connecting to FNF's appraisal management platform to make providing status updates faster and easier when using ANOW's appraiser platform and tools.
"This integration is transformational," says ANOW CEO Marty Haldane. "Appraisers spend up to 50% of their time on administrative tasks, rather than being in the field or completing appraisals. As ANOW and FNF Canada integrate the order system, appraisers will be able to load FNF orders directly into Anow for managing all their back office and scheduling needs and automate the process of updating appointments and order status back to FNF Canada."
"FNF Canada is committed to helping find and innovate ways to help appraisers reduce their overhead and gain efficiencies in their operations," commented Brian Bell, Senior Vice President of Innovation & Data Solutions at FNF Canada. "We see this as both providing a business improvement platform for our appraiser partners to help them make more efficient use of their time and enabling our banking partners to enjoy better turn around times and status updates."
Mr. Bell continued, "We see ANOW as part of our overall strategy to continue to lead the appraisal management industry and deliver a full range of property valuation services ensuring consistent, reliable data sources to maintain the highest in quality and integrity that industry partners have come to expect."
In an agreement, FNF has negotiated for their appraisal partners the opportunity to use the ANOW appraiser platform at a preferential rate as another value add to help appraisers lower costs. FNF is also covering the costs to their appraiser partners to leverage ANOW's AMC.Link so appraisers can easily download orders and automated status updates whether in the office or on the road through the ANOW mobile APP.
Appraisers can expect the integration to ANOW to be in place in Q3, 2017.
ANOW provides a cloud-based appraisal management solution for appraisers in the field and administrative staff back in the office. Our simple web interface and mobile application maximize efficiency and profits. We improve productivity with a tool that ensures clarity and insight into complex day-to-day workflows in today's appraisal business.
