FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, Calif., November 27, 2009 – Applied Business Software Inc. (ABS), developer of The Mortgage Office™, the leading loan servicing software solution for the lending industry, announced today that it has received Transaction Level Report (TLR) certification for CIIS 7.0 from the Community Investment Impact System (CIIS). CIIS is the web-based data collection system that CDFIs and CDEs use to submit their Transaction Level Reports (TLRs) to the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund).
The integration between The Mortgage Office™ and CIIS will offer ABS’ growing network of CDFIs and CDEs the ability to track all necessary information to easily generate their annual Transaction Level Reports (TLRs) and transmit it directly to the CIIS system – significantly streamlining the compliance process and eliminating redundant work.
The CDFI reporting module of The Mortgage Office™ does extensive data validation prior to generating the XML file to ensure compliance with CIIS 7.0 and reduce or eliminate the possibility of the XML TLR file being rejected by CIIS due to errors. Jerry Delgado, president of ABS, stated, “This new module of The Mortgage Office™ will provide our customers with an easy and effective way to generate their Transaction Level Reports (TLRs) and help them to stay in compliance with the requirements set forth by the CDFI Fund. We’re proud of our reputation for excellence, both in our products and in our people. Our large network of satisfied ABS customers is proof of our commitment to providing personal, efficient, quality customer service all day, every day. We realize how important your software system is to the success of your business and we take our responsibility as your software provider very seriously. We at ABS are committed to quality and to providing you with reliable, state-of-the-art, cost-effective solutions to your loan servicing needs.”
