defi SOLUTIONS expands NY facility for titling & more
To handle client demand and make room for personnel and resources, defi SOLUTIONS on Tuesday announced the expansion of the Amherst, N.Y. facility that houses the company’s newly renamed defi MANAGED SERVICING outsourced servicing operation.
According to a news release, the addition of almost 4,000 square feet brings total space in the facility to 43,000 square feet and allows defi SOLUTIONS essential, onsite team members more secure space in which to perform critical daily tasks.
The company said those essential workers in the Amherst facility are using workflow automation and document digitization to enable a growing defi SOLUTIONS remote U.S. workforce as well.
Supported by both onsite and remote team members, defi MANAGED SERVICING has extended its customer call center, front office, and back office operations to 12 hours a day, five days per week.
The company acknowledged that elements of certain processes, such as payment receipt and vehicle titling, require onsite workers and physical title vaults. The Amherst facility offers secure access control with badge-in access and security cameras, and further protects people and assets through backup generators and state-of-the-art fire suppression systems.
The new square footage includes the addition of three new title vaults, each 12 feet in height, with combined storage of 1.8 million physical vehicle titles.
Title access is managed using a new quality-centric inventory control system that digitally logs and reports on any title filed or pulled — by whom, on what day, and at what time — and also can track the title back to a defi client’s account.
The company highlighted defi MANAGED SERVICING clients currently include a growing list of the largest finance companies in the United States.
“It’s truly remarkable that we’re able to grow our hours of operation and scale with the numbers of clients and their customers and can do so with only an additional 4,000 square feet,” defi vice president of client services Steve Bissett said in the news release.
In addition to defi MANAGED SERVICING, defi’s Amherst facility provides more than 3,500 square feet of dedicated data center space plus secure seating for visiting IT resources and the defi IT Service Desk Support team that supports the company’s more than 630 team members working either remotely in the U.S. or onsite in either the company’s locations in Amherst or King of Prussia, Pa., as well as its headquarters in Westlake, Texas.
And defi CEO Tom Allanson added, “We are especially grateful to the essential workers who come to the office daily and enable a growing, remote workforce to do what previously had to be done on premises.”
