Welcome to our quarterly newsletter! With so much industry change, we’re constantly updating ACI software to make you more efficient and to help you maintain compliance. The objective of this newsletter is to give you a quick read on both current and future ACI projects.
This past quarter our main focus was to provide you with software updates to help you navigate around any challenges associated with Collateral Underwriter (CU). With our three-phase approach, we released new PAR® Logic rules (Phase 1) and the Comp CrossCheck™ data validation tool (Phase 2). Currently, we’re working on ACI Analytics™ including regression analysis, which is scheduled to release this month.
We’re also thrilled to announce that ACI Sky™, our web-based appraisal platform has officially been released to private BETA! Stay tuned as we share stories about appraisers filling out forms anytime, anywhere – in the sky!
