Technology is supposed to be a table at which everyone has a good chair, regardless of budget and expertise. But with so many technology options available, choosing the right ones while maintaining a thriving business can sometimes leave you feeling like you’re about to end up in the wrong house in a Grimm’s fairy tale.
CEO and Founder Stephanie Alsbrooks has often imagined what it would be like to have started defi SOLUTIONS 20 years ago, with the technology available then.
With summer nearing an end and fall just around the corner, she and some of defi’s team members took a nostalgic walk down memory lane, comparing “then and now” processes and technologies.
Here’s some of the leaps and bounds they noted that have been made in that time.
defi FEST 2017 is right around the corner!
This year’s annual client summit takes place from September 19-21 and is kicked off by a Tuesday evening celebration in honor of lending industry veteran Elizabeth Webb, who will be retiring this year. The themed event – titled “It Takes a Village to Raise the Bar” – is offering more sessions, more takeaways, and more opportunities than ever for close collaboration among defi clients, partners, and defi team members.
At an August 2017 webinar, host Nick Zulovich, senior editor at SubPrime Auto Finance News & BHPH Report introduced Randy Spradlin, VP of sales for defi EXCHANGE, who discussed the ins and outs of holding versus selling Buy Here Pay Here auto loan notes.
Randy took an in-depth look at the cash flow, profit, capital requirements and ROI of both options and talked about the top 10 attributes lenders look for in BHPH Portfolios and what dealers can do to make sure their portfolio sells on defi EXCHANGE for top dollar.
defi SOLUTIONS Chief Product Officer Kartheek Veeravalli has earned a spot in this year’s Auto Remarketing annual list of “Remarketing & Used-Car Industry’s 40 Under 40.”

From day one, defi SOLUTIONS has been all about community and collaboration. Mutually beneficial collaboration is at the core of who we are as a company and forms the foundation of the defi Preferred Integration Partner (PIP) program.
“It’s all about working together,” said Patty Jefferson, defi vendor relationship manager. “Evolving based on what has worked well, and not so well. And facilitating great relationships that empower our clients and partners and giving both access to one another through powerful integrations.”
We recently provided a defi Tune-Up for a long-time lender and managed to save them hours in their work day. What’s a defi Tune-Up? It’s one of the many services we provide our clients to make sure they’re getting the most mileage out of the defi SOLUTIONS loan origination software.
Glenn Munro, VP of Sales for defi SOLUTIONS, is heading up a dedicated, innovative team of professionals with decades of experience in lending and lending technology services.
We are thrilled that Keven Sticher has joined the defi team as our chief information officer! Keven is taking charge of business alignment, vision, strategy and execution of information technology and information security for the company.
What does that mean exactly?
This 4th of July 2017, we have many reasons to celebrate! Our nation’s freedom and the freedom we extend to our lenders to do business as they choose. And the fireworks that went off two weekends ago when a panel of independent judges deemed defi CEO and founder Stephanie Alsbrooks a winner.
