Scienna doesn't review loan files—instead it helps clients do so productively and cost-effectively. business scope key personnel Peter A. Krell President Ricardo Martins Chief Software Architect Kat Rohr Director, Client Services contact information Headquarters Basking Ridge, New Jersey 908.300.3901 x1 Performing mortgage-related due diligence, audit, file review, and data capture requires specialized and agile information systems. Project scopes vary widely. Review content is constantly customized for new clients and loan products. Lead time is short. There have been few specialized due diligence software systems available in the market, and prospective participants in these business lines have been forced to dedicate substantial time, effort, and funds into the development of a proprietary platform to compete. Additionally, these initiatives often failed to yield workable results. This development has represented an enormous barrier to entry and a significant ongoing burden. Scienna was established with these needs in mind. Scienna does not engage in staffing or file review. Scienna supports firms that do, in a number of ways. The company provides extraordinarily agile software along with flexible service and licensing models. Email: Company History Phone: Scienna's founder and president, Peter A. Krell, has specialized in due diligence technology and business process design in the mortgage markets for more than 20 years. In 1990, Krell co-founded one of the industry's leading due diligence companies. As chief technologist in the firm, Krell personally designed and created the first laptop-based due diligence system employed by investment banks to purchase loans judiciously. Web: scienna 34 | The M Report Scienna's loan review platform, Andor, is the culmination of everything that Krell and his team have learned since that time. Scienna's management team also has extensive experience in special servicing, non-performing loan valuation, loan performance modeling, and conduit/fulfillment center processing. key features With its Andor platform, Scienna can create custom, secure, fast, feature-rich, and userfriendly Internet-based software applications with incredible development speed and efficiency.
