PALM COAST, Fla., April 26, 2012 — ACI, a leading provider of real estate appraisal software and innovator in valuation technology for the mortgage industry, continues to connect authorized agents to the Uniform Collateral Data Portal® (UCDP®). Valutrust Solutions, a residential lender services company, is the latest company delivering appraisal reports to the UCDP using the Appraisal.com delivery service directly wired into the Valutrust platform.
“As an AMC (appraisal management company), it’s important we work well with both our appraiser and lender clients to create a winning combination on both sides,” said Lance Melber, CEO of Valutrust. “ACI’s Appraisal.com allows us to be more effective and provide automated technology that seamlessly integrates with the Valutrust portal. ACI’s integration and the technology are assisting Valutrust in its compliance with the UCDP standards.”
The UCDP requires all appraisals be supplied in MISMO XML format or a first-generation PDF. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac define this requirement in the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD) that went into effect December 1, 2011. ACI’s Appraisal.com UCDP submission service provides an integrated solution between systems to facilitate compliant delivery of appraisal reports. This solution allows for the bidirectional flow of information to improve communication and quality control.
“We recognize the challenge in keeping up with investor and regulatory requirements,” said George Opelka, senior vice president of ACI. “We are very pleased to work with companies like Valutrust to provide that additional level of quality control.”
