Valley Bank is a regional bank holding company headquartered in Wayne, New Jersey, with approximately $42 billion in assets. It has a construction loan portfolio of over 700 loans. Built is an early partner of the Future State Operating Model (FSOM) that Valley is developing to enhance automation and efficiency throughout its operations.
Built is a cloud-based solution that will be used by Valley, its clients and their designees to eliminate time-consuming, paper-based tasks associated with the construction loan management process, such as document collection and inspections. Clients can digitally request draws and collaborate with key stakeholders through Built. Valley selected Built for its ability to monitor/track various construction loan types and its robust reporting capabilities. Built’s software is projected to improve the Bank’s funding turnaround times by 25%.
“Valley continuously pursues the best of everything for its customers and associates, putting an emphasis on enhancing the customer experience, deepening relationships and leveraging a broader ecosystem,” said Robert J. Bardusch, senior executive vice president and chief operating officer, Valley. “Built helps us on all of those fronts, and they have a shared passion for excellence. We’re proud to partner with Built to deliver a more streamlined, seamless experience for our customers.”
“Valley is a future-focused, multi-billion-dollar, multi-state commercial lender with an extensive construction portfolio,” said Chase Gilbert, CEO of Built. “This requires not only active daily management, but also robust reporting to ensure that it is managing construction risk effectively. The Built platform is designed specifically to meet those needs while providing a truly digital and convenient borrower experience.”
Valley is hosting a panel session on October 13 at CRETech that includes Amrit Gill, head of partnerships for Built Technologies, titled “Building for Innovation: How Banks are embracing CRETech.”
