What is LM1?
LM1 is the ultimate digital loan management system for optimizing the "application-to-close" process by fluidly harmonizing the work of loan officers, underwriters, and post-closers. Redundant work is banished and efficiencies exposed across the business.
Via single, unified electronic workspace your teams can seamlessly collaborate with task-flow and chat functions, leveraging instant access to information and services through integration with core banking systems and third party information sources.
The LM1 solution for banks is designed to meet all key banking standards and adapt to the very specific requirements of your loan business.
"Without a strategic approach to workflow, lenders will find themselves battling rising costs and inefficiencies in an increasingly fragmented and competitive marketplace."

LM1 is powered by Whitestein's Living Systems Process Suite (LSPS). LSPS is an industry leading iBPMS that combines goals, decisions, people, process, and data to build simple yet powerful applications that meet any business requirement.
Loan operations is a complex domain that requires intelligence to navigate, particularly with respect to loan processing and underwriting based on information, rules, and the goals of the bank and regulators. To perform this efficiently and effectively, the LSPS engine combines dynamic execution, event management, task multithreading, collaboration, and machine intelligence. LSPS powers LM1 to digitally transform the work of lending teams.

LM1 integrates with document management systems

All documents are Required, Requested, Received, and Verified. Great features such as drag-and-drop plus two-way integration with document management systems including the JHA Synergy®Enterprise Content Management system help to better manage such time consuming and error prone tasks.
Integrating Third-Party Services
Third party services are a critical and expanding area for lending teams to manage. All too often lenders, processors, and underwriters are suffering from "swivel chair syndrome". They log into any number of different systems to pull, print, scan, and retype information for credit reports, appraisals, OFAC, CRB, and other requirements.
LM1 eliminates this overhead. Credit reports, CRB checks, and appraisals are ordered automatically through LM1 with copies of each stored as Supporting Documents. Useful data is extracted from these reports for analysis, such as liabilities from credit reports and other financial data.

Email, text, and integration to CRM systems
Lending is a team sport. Efficient communication and the ability to trace that communication and decision making are critical for execution and audit. LM1 provides team collaboration Q&A and comment features keeping that information with the loan.
Notifications are automatic and configurable. For example, email notifications are sent directly to team members. Additionally, LM1 can escalate issues based on policy and performance goals. LM1 can also integrate to CRM systems to keep everyone abreast of loan progress, issues, and/or work assignments.
Seamless guidance of the loan team through compliance tasks

Full audit history of loan actions
LM1’s standardization and streamlining of processes does more than improve operational efficiencies and reduce operational costs, it supports regulatory compliance to aid easier implementation and less costly maintenance.
Policy is implemented and seamlessly enforced throughout the process, without making the process too rigid to support the way teams work. Policy guides for users are stored within the system for quick reference. Policy changes are easily driven by business users steering the system in LM1’s intuitive configuration layer.
Automatically loads all loan information into doc prep systems
LM1 supports multiple doc prep and LOS systems
Improves quality while insulating operations from changes
For many lending teams, loading the loan information into the Doc Prep is the point where errors, missing information, and rework are identified.
For LM1 users all those issues are avoided or solved early in the process, ensuring that loading the loan into the LOS for closing preparation is both instant and painless.
Clear pipeline data
Realtime dashboard components and embedded charts
Full audit history of loan actions
LM1 provides visibility into processes and ensures that the right data is available at the right time to ensure more consistent decision making. LM1 captures every action in the process making providing complete audit trail on the “what, when, and who” of each loan.
With LM1, information silos are a thing of the past.
The Pipeline is there in real time, the way you need to see it. The team members working the loan are clearly displayed. All team comments and questions are stored and available with the loan. LM1 even creates a sales event in your CRM system, such as JHA Synapsys®CRM,so the entire bank has visibility of the loan in process.
