Summit Mortgage

– Mortgage lender utilizes the detailed reporting capabilities for state compliance-


IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 14, 2016 – Advantage Systems, a provider of accounting and financial management tools for the mortgage industry, announces that Plymouth, Minnesota-based Summit Mortgage Corporation, a national mortgage lender, has used its AMB (Accounting for Mortgage Bankers) solution to simplify the way the organization manages compliance with state trust accounting regulations.

Summit selected AMB as its accounting system in 2003 to facilitate its accounting needs. The mortgage lender is able to produce custom reports via the system in less time than with prior accounting systems.

Summit uses AMB as a recruiting tool for valued branch managers and accounting staff, who express a preference for using AMB. It gives branch managers access to web based reporting tools to help manage their branch.

“AMB helped us create reports that have enabled us to successfully manage compliance in states that have some of the most complex regulatory requirements in the country,” said Kelly Brinkman, Controller at Summit Corporation.

“Over the years, we have developed AMB to meet the specific requirements of various lenders” said Brian Lynch, president of Advantage Systems. “Enabling Summit to remain compliant in its trust accounting is just one example of how we believe AMB has become the industry standard for mortgage accounting practices.”

AMB is a robust accounting system that was specifically designed for mortgage bankers. The solution brings real-time accounting data to both accounting and non-accounting staff in a practical, useable format. Key features include the ability to view loan level data that displays profitability by loan, loan type, loan officer and branch.
