Security One Lending (S1L) announced it has introduced QR Codes to its print and online advertising platforms.
QR, or “Quick Response,” Codes (see image) are images that can be scanned by smart phones, much the way bar codes can be scanned by bar code scanners. The QR code is scanned to instantly direct the user to online or contact data. The codes allow users to bridge the gap between print and online media.
S1L’s application of the codes will allow its loan officers to direct prospective clients from a print ad to S1L’s website for more information.
“The goal has always been to promote ways in which the individual loan producer can compete with the online providers of reverse mortgages. Any originator, whether it’s a company or an individual, must be prepared and positioned to compete online,” said Torrey Larsen, President of S1L. “We are building systems that will allow the individual originator to win market share and work more efficiently than their competitors. We are betting on the originator.”
“Originators that have either not adapted to technology or have worked for a company that does not promote and equip them for these inevitable market changes, may be extinct in the next 12 months,” explained Ron Fechter, National Performance Executive for S1L. “This component of our market plan is only a part of several enhanced strategies that will position Loan Officers to compete for business in the future.
