LoanPlus utilizes location-based services worldwide utilizing our patented GPS-based technology applications, customized software programming, and sophisticated cellular data communications - supported by our experienced and dedicated customer services teams.

Our advanced Collateral Management System (CMS) was created for sub-prime auto finance companies. As technology has progressed and the demand for sub-prime loans has increased, a growing number of lenders are turning to CMS solutions using Global Positional Systems (GPS) and the various data generated to help them manage their portfolio risk.

• Customized and secured web-based control center for both lenders and dealers

These components are designed to work in tangent with your existing portfolio management systems to manage critical elements of your business more efficiently and safely.

• I only write A-paper. Can LoanPlus help me?
Expansion of a portfolio beyond A and B paper is one way we can help.

LoanPlus will not only allow you to expand your portfolio to include more risky loans, it will also help you maintain a higher level of safety and predictability that you typically experience with your prime-credit borrowers. By helping you expand your client base and range of acceptable credit risk, LoanPlus will help your institution grow faster while increasing profitability.

• Who competes with LoanPlus?

Smaller companies have emerged who typically use third-party services to essentially sell the equipment. However, it is essential to apply broader-based best practices that give lenders the opportunity to reap the full benefits of CMS. A very essential best practice is to have rigorous privacy policies that are compliant with state and federal laws, and apply them consistently. A legitimate SaaS (Software as a Service) and MRM (Mobile Resource Management) technology provider can help lenders do this.
