Check Printing Contract Consulting (CPCC), a MBA Endorsed Vendor, negotiates check printing agreements on behalf of banks. Its principal had a 32-year track record as a top sales performer for one of the country's largest check printers. Since early 2015, Check Printing Contract Consulting has impartially negotiated check printing agreements for more than 280 institutions, with the vast majority of clients choosing to stay with their current vendor. The check printer funds CPCC's full consulting fee as a portion of the negotiated savings. A bank with 35,000 checking accounts would enjoy average five-year total contract savings of $500,000 or more. The average savings is proportionate, so a bank with 70,000 checking accounts would often realize five-year total contract savings of $1,000,000 or more.

216 Hickory Glen
Madison, MS 39110
(601) 405-1802
Vizaline is a software firm that converts written property descriptions into pictures using satellite images to help determine if a legal property description is correct. The visualization tool, or "Viza-Audit," provides a rapid and inexpensive report to help lenders better understand their assets and protect portfolios and customers by making better decisions on the front end. Turnaround time is generally 48 hours. The legal property description is the foundation to the loan, and errors create troublesome risk exposure. Issues delay foreclosures, reduce market value of properties and expose properties to weather and vandalism. Vizaline has conducted more than 13,000 case audits for nearly 40 banks across six states. Banks range in size from $100M-$5B in assets. Incredibly, although maybe not surprisingly, audit results revealed that 15% of legal descriptions tested by Viza-Audit contained mistakes. Visa-Audit lets a banker know quickly if there is an issue requiring an attorney or a survey. Most significantly, Vizaline has not had a bank leave the program after they joined.
