Constant thinks about loan operations differently. They fully automate servicing, which is the only way members can resolve issues online without live agent assistance. By moving these efforts online, Constant converts servicing requests, like a payoff quote on letterhead, into an origination opportunity. For example, Constant’s platform asks members why they’re requesting a payoff (selling, refi, etc.) and then directs them to apply for a new loan – avoiding member flight. They have automated more than 25 workflows that are currently manual for most credit unions today. Many of these workflows lead to increased fee and/or interest income resulting from a loan servicing action a member takes. Click here for more information about Constant / Back to top
