Focus on processes
When Waterstone set out to streamline their entire loan lifecycle, they knew it would be a mistake to focus all their efforts on the front-end. They needed to improve the processes on the backend too. They quickly learned that real-time, trustworthy reporting and data were the key to getting a holistic view of where things were running smoothly, and where they still had improvements to make. Encompass Data and Docs™, Encompass Data Connect®, and Insights™ to bring all the information they need right into their Encompass® environment. This one-stop-shop for information about everything from error counts to competitor benchmarking has made a huge impact on efficiency and their bottom line.
Better decision making
Using trustworthy data to inform decision-making leave less to chance and makes more room for success. Accessing data in real-time that is relevant for today's market is what puts Waterstone over-the-top when it comes to making decisions for individual branches. “One of the things that we liked about the recent release of Insights were the Snapshots. It allows us to look at key performance indicators very quickly, and make decisions on what to drill down into and look at in additional detail,” Knapp said. “That information, and that speed of access, will be invaluable to our branches.”
