POMPANO BEACH, Fla., April 25, 2017 —ACES Risk Management (ARMCO), the leading provider of financial quality control and compliance software, announced that its ACES (Automated Compliance and Evaluation System) Audit Technology has streamlined quality control (QC) loan reviews for The Barrent Group, a rapidly growing provider of outsourced loan quality assurance reviews and services. ARMCO’s solution significantly reduces The Barrent Group’s auditing times, reduces risk, ensures compliance and streamlines its mortgage quality control process for clients.

ARMCO’s ACES Audit Technology is a robust quality control (QC) audit technology that quickly and efficiently standardizes the various QC review steps throughout the entire process, with unparalleled consistency and accuracy, ensuring that loans are always of high quality and fully compliant.

“We are pleased that The Barrent Group is successfully leveraging ACES to provide QC technology that optimizes loan QC automation for each of their clients,” said Avi Naider, CEO of ARMCO. “ACES essentially becomes an extension of The Barrent Groups’ IT infrastructure, which empowers them to be fully self-sufficient and work with their clients to quickly identify and report on any loan defects. ACES’ ease-of-use and configurability enables The Barrent Group to flex with their clients’ changing needs, while operating more efficiently, cost effectively and with newfound agility.”

The Barrent Group provides independent third-party reviews, analysis and recommendations, with a strong emphasis placed on the risk and quality levels of residential mortgage loans.
