Carissa Robb, President and COO of Constant recollects, how during the 2008/09 mortgage crisis, loss mitigation requests, aged in queues for months and Credit scores were damaged. Customers felt defeated and their willingness to pay was lost.
She added; Yet, it appeared there was no preparation for the similar crisis.
Instead, investment and innovation based on technology focused on increasing the amount of credit origination, only to shift the long-term management of these loans to manual support teams and antiquated operating systems.
Constant offers financial service providers and third-party vendors its AI-powered software platform to accelerate hardship relief support, applying decision-based logic and API-driven analytics to replace manual processes. The business developed the platform for the loans it originated to reduce losses during a recession and to escape the high costs of distressed loan servicing. As the COVID-19 crisis hastened consumer financial stress, Constant’s team made rapid program changes to give both lenders and service providers the technology.
