Global finance technology company White Clarke Group is partnering with SMS software company Solutions by Text to support better communication between lenders, dealerships and customers.
The integration coordinates White Clarke Group’s existing CALMS loan origination software with Solutions by Text’s automated outbound messaging services.
This enables lenders to send SMS notifications on the progress of ongoing applications.
In addition to outbound text notifications, Solutions by Text provides customer identity authentication to validate customer phone numbers and an opt-in data capture function to ensure TCPA compliance.
The service also offers White Clarke Group customers a convenient method of uploading and retrieving document image submissions and the ability to provide instant feedback from underwriting or funding teams on the approval status of loan applications.
Jonathan Dodds (pictured), chief executive officer at White Clarke Group, said: “Our partnership with Solutions by Text opens up new avenues for fuss-free communication with customers.
“Customizable and flexible integration with existing systems means that White Clarke Group can offer an additional customer-focused service compatible with CALMS Loan Origination Software, to provide maximum utility with minimum hassle.”

Clients include Toyota Financial Services, Volkswagen Financial Services, Daimler Financial Services, United Bank, LeasePlan, Hitachi Capital and Exeter Finance.
