OpCon and FICS

Automate mortgage solutions with OpCon

Eliminate Manual Processing

When it comes to FICS® processing, most institutions must manually process mortgage applications. The manual effort required for this time-consuming task forces users to run their processing too early, much later into the evening or move it to the next day. This causes the information to fall out of sync with their core system creating confusion for customers. As an institution grows larger, the customer satisfaction can suffer.

Eliminate Manual Processing

SMA Technologies partnered with FICS to develop a comprehensive integration between FICS and OpCon. The integration relies on the FICS APIs, which currently support Mortgage Servicer and Mortgage Accountant. This connection is dynamic and ensures that as FICS expands their API offerings, the OpCon integration will be able to handle those new applications (e.g., Commercial Servicer). OpCon not only runs FICS processing seamlessly, but it completely automates all aspects of processing as well. It can generate PDF output, output data for consumption by other systems and dynamically supply run-time parameters to programs. Not only that, OpCon supports the creation of process, date, resource, variable and other dependencies to ensure FICS programs run exactly when and how they should.
