Brevity is a multi-user, cross-functional, real-time Software platform which is being utilized by The Horn Funding Corp as a loan originating, processing and production system. Brevity intends to provide a single system for all employees, to collaborate and provide mortgage lending (and brokerage) services in the Colorado marketplace.
Many technologies are currently being used in the mortgage lending industry, but most of them lack many attributes that we desire. We desired to build Brevity specifically catered to The Horn Funding’s process of originating and closing mortgage loans.
The idea of Brevity was created in 2012. However, it was based on ten years of previous technology builds and ideas. The goal was to utilize many of these past ideas and build a fully functional robust platform. Tipstat realized the project's vision and an agile (iteration-based) methodology was put in place to develop the Software. For this, the functionalities had to be comprehensively documented first with the help of ‘wireframes’ and ‘user stories’ which gave the team a detailed view of the software to be developed after which we go through the development, testing and client review phases. The process is followed from beginning till the end for each release.
The consumer website (www.hornfunding.com) that derives a lot of features and control from Brevity is being developed till date, with a duration of 3 months for each release. Agile methodology is employed for each release, giving the team a detailed view of the software to be developed. The team then goes through the planning, development, testing and client-review phases at each phase. The detailed project plan makes it easier to allocate the resources according to the project timeline.
Brevity is specifically catered to The Horn Funding’s process of originating and closing mortgage loans and thus is providing an ‘easy to use’ technology platform that focuses intelligently on the mortgage process.
The pricing for consumer-facing website is controlled by Brevity’s ‘Admin’ user and the applications received on the website or flown into Brevity where they are processed by the ‘Loan Originator’ user
The web application is being used by Loan Officers, Packaging Managers and Closer-Funders of The Horn Funding Corp and its subsidiaries.
The consumer-facing website (www.hornfunding.com) is live and can be viewed by potential consumers who can apply for loans on the website which is then saved to Brevity
