Inovatec Systems co-founder and chief executive officer Vlad Kovacevic alluded to new products being in the pipeline when Cherokee Media Group reconnected with him in March during the American Financial Services Association’s Vehicle Finance Conference.

Backing up those mentions, the cloud-based software solutions provider last week released its Inovatec LMS 2.0 platform, a management and servicing system designed to help finance companies automate and streamline workflows.

Inovatec highlighted the platform’s roster of new features, customizations and expanded integrations can give finance companies the ability to seamlessly manage portfolios, take proactive remedial steps and better monetize contacts over their full lifecycles. 

“We have always believed that portfolio management is where lenders actually make money, and we developed our next generation LMS to achieve this objective,” Kovacevic said in a news release. “This platform leverages innovative technologies including AI and advanced analytics, and has a wide range of integrations with third party solutions. This empowers our customers to minimize manual work and maximize performance.

“We see this LMS platform as a perfect illustration of how to use advanced technology to deliver tangible benefits to the thousands of lenders that are looking to become more agile, efficient and profitable,” Kovacevic continued.

The company also mentioned the LMS 2.0 solution’s updated functionality includes improved integrations with industry-standard platforms and innovative partners such as Google’s Looker analytics suite, Solutions By Text’s communications platform, the Neo predictive analytics platform, QuickBooks accounting software, and the REPAY payments platform.

The tool also features an enhanced workflow module and improved loan management tools. These allow users to better organize queues and permissions and more easily search for delinquent loans via a custom date range.

All told, the Inovatec LMS 2.0 enhancements include:

—Configurable automated workflows: Inovatec’s advanced loan servicing system now allows administrators to organize improved queues and permissions so they can more easily manage and escalate cases. Workflows can be better distributed and optimized through these customizations.

— Configurable work queues and tools.  Administrators can specify any criteria/range to create custom work queues, allowing lenders to manage their businesses in whatever way is most effective for their model. For example, LMS 2.0 can let users search for late payments based on any date range they choose, as opposed to a limited range of 30 days at a time, making it easier to identify and manage delinquencies.

— Automated late fee feature: The LMS now can let users create customized late fees and manage the logic regarding when those fees are applied. The system can flag users as to whether or not the fee should be charged based on the assigned grace period and the customer’s payment patterns.

— Accounting system integration: The Inovatec LMS 2.0 solution directly integrates with major accounting systems and can now generate daily QuickBook files either automatically or manually. 

— Google looker integration: An integration with Looker can allow users to quickly analyze datasets to identify more meaningful, intuitive data insights. This makes it easier for managers to build a more accessible data exploration platform.

— REPAY payment and reverse files capability: The LMS now integrates with the REPAY payment technology platform, which reduces the complexity of electronic payments. It processes REPAY payment and reverse files, sending REPAY Bill Load Files back to REPAY.

— Solutions By Text integration: Inovatec’s LMS now integrates with Solutions by Text, the provider of a text messaging platform for consumer financial services institutions. This integration can enable finance companies to securely accept payments via text, meeting a range of communications preferences and complying with strict regulatory requirements.

— Neo Integration: Neo’s platform provides AI and machine learning-based predictive scoring for underwriting and collections, based on past loan performance. These highly accurate, customized algorithms can provide visibility into potential at-risk contracts, and allow finance companies to create realistic programs to help faltering borrowers get back on track.

— Operating lease daily processes: LMS 2.0 can accommodate a new range of daily processes for operating lease contracts, including the calculation of daily cost capital depreciation and taxes and monthly rental accruals.

— Improved balloon loan portfolio: New fields have been added to the details section for loan portfolios and contracts, to help loan officers better delineate when balloon payments are in force and manage those accounts.

— Securitization fields and upload files: The system now accepts, stores, and displays specific securitization fields, and indicates whether a contract is included in a securitization partner’s tranche.
