Expert and Automated Appraisal Review

Sapphire is designed to significantly improve workflow by combining both expert and automated appraisal review

Automated Review and Quality Control

Automated review puts the property valuation through a series of rules defined by your business. If the automated appraisal review meets your defined criteria, Sapphire will accept the valuation. If the automated review is questionable, then Sapphire will route the valuation into the appropriate queue for manual review or back to the vendor for resubmission.

Manual and Management Review

Sapphire determines which reviewer is best equipped to perform a manual review of the returned report based on geographic area, review specialty or even vacation schedules. Managers have transparency into the entire review process and can enforce a senior review phase to take place after a junior reviewer completes his/her analysis on a report. Additionally, a manager can control employee workloads, time off, specialties, as well as many other criteria to make workflow more efficient.
