Preferred Credit, Inc., Selects Nortridge Loan System to Support Servicing Direct Sales Loans

LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 16, 2013 – Nortridge Software Company, a leading software provider for loan servicing companies nationwide, today announced that Preferred Credit Inc., has selected, implemented and completed its first phase of loan conversions to the Nortridge Loan System (NLS) software application. Preferred Credit provides financing and loan servicing for the direct sales industry.

According to Laurie Brown, director of strategic initiatives for Preferred Credit, the company needed to find a software product that could manage both their pre-compute installment loans and revolving lines of credit, while also addressing the complexity of their compliance and accounting needs.

“Nortridge was a clear frontrunner from the start,” Brown said. “We do business in all 50 states plus Guam and Puerto Rico. We need a system that can support our long-range strategic plans to expand our product offerings. NLS’s flexibility and assurance that we remain compliant in all of these states was important.”

As Preferred Credit transitions to the new software, the NLS team continues to develop new features that support Preferred Credit’s needs. “Shortly after we started the implementation process, we learned that they needed added functionality for rebates and same-as-cash transactions,” said Greg Hindson, president, Nortridge Software Company. “We were able to accommodate those requirements.”

“The implementation team had decades of experience,” said Brown. “It’s a real benefit to have a Nortridge project manager oversee the implementation process and acceptance testing. Our project manager understood our business and why we’re asking the questions we’re asking. We’re so pleased we chose NLS.”

Brown also states that NLS will support them in growing their business. Their previous servicing system couldn’t do loan interest deferrals, stepped interest or loan deferments to help customers who had gotten extremely past due. All of these features come standard with NLS.

“Preferred Credit has always been a forward-thinking organization on behalf of their clients, and we are proud to help them continue extending their brand in the market,” Hindson said.
