System Requirements

NLS is a multi-tier client server application written in-house entirely in Microsoft Visual C++ using an industry standard back end database.

NLS supports integration with third party products using COM, DCOM, C++, VB, and SOAP based web services. There are approximately 50 different third party products with which we have interfaced.

Import and export controls are in the GUI with event driven scripting. Importing into the application is as simple as building an XML object and importing via one of our supported interface methods.

Disk space is dependent on the database used, number of loans in a portfolio, and type of history maintained. Estimates for a loan portfolio are 80 MB to 200 MB per 1,000 loans maintained for one year. Size per 1,000 loans is based on:

  • Statement, late notices, and other images being archived in the database.
  • Frequency of statements.
  • Loan setups that include complicated interest structures.
  • Transactions per loan.
  • Collections activity for specific portfolio.
