Functional Changes and Benefits

The new and improved Workout Prospector allows you to streamline existing processes and help your bottom line, while continuing to optimize borrower outcomes with greater certainty.

Specifically, the enhancements have:

  • Eliminated the need to submit Guide Form 1128, Loss Mitigation Transmittal Worksheet, for modifications on conventional mortgages.
  • Reduced the number of required settlement fields from 50 to 17.
  • Provided real-time notifications on potential missing or incorrect data.
  • Decreased settlement times considerably.
  • Reduced the average amount of user clicks by 75 percent.
  • Provided the ability to download and maintain a comprehensive record of your settlement transactions.

We’ve also addressed concerns related to the costs of servicing Freddie Mac loans by increasing operational efficiency and mitigating potential data correction fees.


We’ve developed comprehensive webinars to assist you in learning about Workout Prospector's more intuitive user interface and the streamlined path for modeling modifications and liquidations.
