After loans are entered into your DMS, transaction postings like late charges, CPI, repairs, NSF transactions, deferments, due date changes and payments may not have been applied correctly.
It doesn’t necessarily mean they are wrong. They may just be amortizing incorrectly. You could be under-charging or over-charging a customer. A potential sale, financing or audit may be affected.
Becoming AgoraCertified will help guide you to best practices.

We do this for you as standard reconditioning practices for your Loans.

No, we are “Value Creators” not loan compliance people. In the event you need compliance professionals we have an arrangement with an industry leading compliance firms and we can connect you with them for discounted services.
By reconditioning your loans, they will be optimized and that can increase performance and make your senior lender less worried at line of credit renewal time. Also, having a loan portfolio that has been optimized ensures you are breaking out principal and interest properly.
Your loans are run through our models and we validate that the principal balance and interest paid are what it should be based on the contract. Many times, we find that the dealers short themselves money by misapplying interest and principal on each payment. Even worse is if you overcharge your customers you are open for potential litigation or regulatory problems.
It ensures you have all the required documents. It also shows a buyer, auditor or senior lender that you have policy and procedures in place, and details matter.
By getting certified you are sending a strong message that not only you care, but also want to use best practices. It shows you have an interest in having stronger and long-lasting business relationships. Lenders and buyers can “check the box” more comfortably on counter-party risk.
Additionally, lenders that may have thought you too small or too risky will look at you differently when you have the controls and process in place that our certification gives you.
Our value creators will send you alerts periodically. We are also your resource for any questions or advice that you may have.
