MortgageWorkSpace is designed specifically for Mortgage Professionals and managed by ABT. We host PointCentral, Encompass 360, Byte and more. Our Cloud Desktop includes the latest versions of Outlook, Word, Excel, and Adobe Reader. The Encompass 360 Smart Client runs faster when it's virtualised because we can utilize the Azure Data center that is closest to your Encompass server. Closing the distance between the Encompass Client and the Encompass Server increases speed and performance.
MortgageWorkSpace provides an easy to use document storage solution enabling users to work out of shared folders and admins the ability to grant access based on roles and permission levels. When your company’s data is spread across multiple locations and multiple devices security is a constant concern. Stop exposing your business to data loss, theft, cyber attack, or a compliance violation. With MortgageWorkSpace your IT is shifted to a centralized architecture that lowers capital and operating expenses while increasing flexibility and security.
Many companies have struggled to maintain complex loan origination systems in virtual environments. However, ABT’s strategic partnerships with Microsoft, Ellie Mae, Calyx Software, Byte Software, and others enable us to keep you running at peak performance. We manage and configure mortgage software better than anyone.
Desktops: Give your users a full desktop experience with a variety of applications that all work together. We install
RemoteApps: Specify individual applications that run virtually in the cloud but appear as if they’re running on the user’s desktop like local applications. The apps have their own taskbar entry and can be resized and moved across monitors. Ideal for deploying and managing key applications in the secure, remote environment while allowing users to work from and customize their own desktops. Compatible with 1-16 monitors with no extra configuration required. The benefit of Remote Apps over Remote Desktops is the ability to simultaneously access remote and local applications from the same desktop.
Mortgage companies need to be more strategic and mobile. With Cloud Desktop you only pay for the users you have now. Your cost scales up or down with the size of your workforce. IT professionals must do more with less. To lower expenses and capital outlay IT must be able to support users with fewer staff. Alternative strategies like working remotely, virtual offices and “Bring Your Own Device” can save on office space, overhead and hardware expenses. You don’t have to buy new computers as often because we keep apps and operating systems up to date in our centralized data center.
Data is encrypted at rest and in transit. The desktop is accessed through MortgageWorkSpace.com which acts as a security gateway by requiring users to complete two forms of authentication (MFA). You can limit user access by IP address for an additional layer of security. Safely browse the web with a built in Web Proxy which automatically protects you from millions of harmful URL’s while giving you the ability to white list and black list websites to meet your company’s regulations.
Quickly deploy desktops to hundreds of users. Eliminate the confusion of managing OS versions and patches. Have new desktop available on demand. Eliminate the need for prior planning when hiring new employees. They can access their own virtual desktop with all the tools they need from any device. Deploying Cloud Desktops eliminates hours of setup for each new employee.
Employees own several different devices but need a high-quality Windows Desktop experience to get their work done. Mortgage companies who can meet these requirements will have employees who produce more. Enabling employees to use their own device is not an easy strategy. Installing and maintaining software on different devices with different operating systems is complex and time consuming. When there are problems with software applications employees are stuck long remote session with IT wasting their time and your support team resources. For example, Encompass typically runs much faster in our virtual environment compared to running locally.
Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, and Google Drive are great solutions when properly managed and configured for the mortgage industry, but if they are not users can easily put copies of documents on their laptop, mobile device and desktop. MortgageWorkSpace Cloud Desktop with an optional file server for sharing documents keeps documents in a secure data center, not on local devices. Users can store documents in their My Documents folder or access files and folders in their built-in file server. When teams collaborate on documents they always have access to the latest version. The administrator can grant access to users based on their role at the company. You always have option to sync files between you Cloud Desktop and your Dropbox, Box, OneDrive or Google Drive account.
The MortgageWorkSpace portal enables you to deploy applications to hundreds of users instantly. Our LastPass integration allows you to deploy hundreds of different user credentials without disclosing passwords to the end user. This saves hours of administrator resources when an employee leaves the company.
Simply add new users to the MortgageWorkSpace portal, assign them to a group and provide them with their credentials. Once you have added a user they will be prompted for their second authentication method the they will instantly have access to their Cloud Desktop. They will have access to the apps and folders they need based on their assigned group. You can use your existing directory of Office 365 users to automatically deploy and integrate Cloud Desktops.
Traditional IT strategies require installing hardware at each branch location. After user accounts are created, the hardware must be configured for security, software must be downloaded and then installed. IT staff must move from location to location and machine to machine to address problems. This is an expensive and inefficient support model.
Using this new model, users are now free to work in any location with an internet connection. They have the flexibility to choose the places or devices that allow them to be most productive.
As part of our implementation we will sync your existing scanner to your Cloud Desktop, so you can easily scan files and have them where you need them. You can easily print documents from within your Cloud Desktop without having to do any extra configuration.
