LendingLogix: Out preaching BPM

Dave Williamson, a mortgage industry consultant formerly with The Performance Group, and Scott Baller have founded LendingLogix, a new company its founders say will offer more choice to mortgage bankers for management consulting resources.

The Dallas-based management consulting company was founded in December and will provide strategic and tactical services to mortgage banking companies including business process management, technology evaluation and implementation, planning for eMortgages, and business scorecards. LendingLogix is a sister company to AppLogix, a custom software development and IT resource company, that Baller has operated for eight years.

I spoke to Williamson earlier this week for Martopia's Executive Podcasts MP3 Radio Show and he was excited about helping lenders separate their business processes from the technologies they have employed to automate them.

“In 2006, business process management will be the most important management issue for mortgage bankers. Current initiatives such as implementing a new LOS or a service-based architecture, pursuing strategic outsourcing, or moving into a new business channel will require management to understand that process proficiency is the foundation for today’s and tomorrow’s strategic plans. Even the most thoughtful strategy needs consistent process execution over some period of time to deliver the expected results. It’s that simple,” said Williamson.
