Use underwriter approval limits

Underwriter approval limits are used to control the dollar amount (of a loan) for loan underwriting (see above). Underwriter limits are configured by category. Check this box to enable Underwriter Limits at the credit union. Learn more about Loan Underwriter Approval Limits

  • One word of caution for credit unions considering using underwriting approval limits. Once this feature is activated, underwriter approval limits are required for all loan officers approving loans using codes with underwriter security. Once the feature is activated, loan officers cannot approve loans without the appropriate underwriter approval limits. The absence of a limit (configured by loan category) will be viewed by the system as a limit of zero. The underwriter approval limit feature has a Copy option; it is recommended that credit unions create a “Loan Officer” Employee ID, add limits to this ID. Then the Copy feature can be used to copy these limits to all appropriate Emp ID, with individual adjustments made by each Emp ID as needed.

WARNING: If this box is checked and later unchecked, all configured underwriter limits will be deleted from the system.

Use App Workflow Styles to control which application pages to show/bypass

Loan App Workflow Styles

Use this box to activate loan app workflow styles.  This feature is configured at the bottom of this screen.  

SEE ALSO: Configuring Tools for Loan Teams

A normal CU*BASE loan application has 10 different screens, but not all of them are critical for every type of loan.  The “Loan App Workflow Styles” controls the automatic forward momentum through the CU*BASE Loan Application screens, bypassing pages that are not required by the particular loan product (such as skipping over the employment, income, and assets screens for a CD-secured loan). 

 

  • IMPORTANT: All normal “behind the scenes” actions still happen even if you loan officer does not actually view a screen.  For example, if your credit union auto-fills debts from the credit report this will still happen regardless of whether the officer actually views the Debts screen.  This feature simply means that the loan officer will not be presented the button to access the screen and will not be able to make changes to it.

 

To start using the feature, check this box and use Enter.  The system-generated styles will appear as well as the Add button which allows you to configure your own styles.  Learn more below.

 

Activate automated collateral valuation

Your credit union can implement a tight integration between CU*BASE and the NADA (National Automobile Dealer Association) or Kelley Blue Book (KBB) to populate the automobile’s current value directly into the collateral record. (The election of the vendor is selected in the Operations CU Master Parameters)

Learn more in the Configuring Tools for Loan Team booklet.

  • IMPORTANT:  Prior to activation, you will need to work with Lender*VP to set up the connection to collect the NADA data. 

  • NOTE:  This feature cannot be used with commercial vehicles at this time.  Only automobile valuation can be populated.

  • Self Processor credit unions:  To use this new feature you will need to add new subsystem.  Contact Lender*VP for assistance.  

Check this box to activate the Automated Collateral Valuation feature.  Once this box is checked, the "Valuation for collateral types" and "Valuation to use" fields will appear.  Select the appropriate collateral types to apply this feature to using the multiple Select button next to the "Valuation for collateral type" field.  Also select a "Valuation to use" value.

Once this activation is complete, when accessing collateral on the Loan Collateral Identification screen (used in loan applications and when updating collateral on an existing loan), you will see a "Get Value" button."  This allows you to populate the automobile’s current NADA (National Automobile Dealer Association) value directly into the collateral record. Learn more on this topic: Loan Collateral Identification screen.

  • NOTE:  The "Get Value" button will appear only for collateral records of the collateral types selected in the "Valuation for collateral types" field.  

Valuation for collateral types

(Appears when "Activate automated collateral valuation" is checked.)  Use the multiple Select button to reveal a screen listing collateral types with collateral definition V (vehicle).  Select the collateral types you wish to use with the Automated Collateral Valuation (NADA) explained in the "Activate automated collateral valuation" field.

Valuation to use

(Appears when "Activate automated collateral valuation" is checked for NADA only.) Defaults to "Retail;" however, you may also select Trade In or Loan.  Used with the Automated Collateral Valuation (NADA) explained in the "Activate automated collateral valuation" field.

(Kelley Blue Book does not show this field, since Retail is always used by default.)

 

Loan App Workflow Styles

SEE ALSO: Configuring Tools for Loan Team

See more about feature above.  To activate the feature, first check Use App Workflow Styles to control which application pages to show/bypass and use Enter.

Once the feature is activated, the system-generated styles will appear.  Above you can see these styles.  Each styles is giving a Style # and the columns indicate which screens (and corresponding buttons) are shown on the loan application.  You may choose to use these default styles.  You may also edit them to fit your credit union needs.  Or you may create a new style using the Add New button. 

To edit an existing style, select the style and use Edit.  Then you can edit the selections.  To add a new style use Add New.  

Next you will need to associate the Loan App Workflow style to a loan product.  Indicate the style on the first loan product screen.
