Given the dynamic changes in the valuation industry, responding with an innovative, technology-driven solution was imperative. VALIDITY Pro positioned SVI to support our lenders’ demand for innovative solutions.

From the onset, client feedback was key, understanding the customer’s current and future needs.

In the end, the team rose to the challenge that only a small handful of other companies were able to accomplish, creating a product with a professional look and feel, ease of use, and training that is world-class.

VALIDITY Pro guides the Broker/Agent seamlessly through a full visual inspection and electronic floor plan process, collecting a comprehensive set of property photos and needed commentary.

Leadership Comments:

“The SVI team, entrusted with the responsibility of launching the VALIDITY Pro application and positioning the company as a progressive leader in the space, has not only met but exceeded expectations. Their dedication and achievement in this endeavor are commendable and should be a source of pride for the entire team. This team rose to the challenge that only a small handful of other companies were able to accomplish. The professional look and feel of the program, from the app to the training, is world-class. I can’t think of a better project that required effort across a wide range of employees within SVI and acted as a catalyst to uniting two AMCs into one SVI than VALIDITY Pro.”
