    Breakout Session,

    Emerging Technologies Track

    Manual, repetitive processes are common across mortgage banks. Enter robotics: software that mimics the way staff use computers to complete rules-based work.  Robotics vendors are promising that if you invest upfront, savings are guaranteed. Unfortunately, this often is not the case because of the nature of mortgage systems and processes, the cost of scaling, and the complexity of maintaining a solution with ever-changing third party tie-ins.  Learn from other lenders how they’re utilizing Robots-as-a-Service to dramatic savings in a matter of weeks with no up-front investment.
