Features That Drive Efficiency

With a wide variety of features and tools, Trustee Suite offers the most comprehensive case-management technology in the market.

DISTRIBUTIONS

Distributions allow Trustees to initiate a distribution and post checks on one screen. While scanning a built-in dashboard of banking and claim balances, Trustees efficiently and securely manage distributions. Using on-screen tools, Trustees create and save multiple distributions scenarios or automatically add interest rates, simplifying a normally complex task.

DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT

The document manager provides a centralized location for documents, reports, bank statements, and emails. Managing paperwork from a secure, online hub provides Trustees with peace of mind, knowing that all documents are readily available when needed. Case documents, including bank statements, are automatically pulled into document management for review, while Trustees can use annotation, search, and preview tools to maintain a streamlined document workflow.

341 (A) MEETING TAB

The 341(a) Meeting Tab has all the information needed to conduct a case’s 341(a) meeting. Within the 341(a) Meeting Tab, Trustees find information from the schedules that have been imported into a single location, enabling efficient review. Using customization options, Trustees organize information for review, interview, and tracking purposes that works best for their office.

Remote Deposit Capture

RDC simplifies the check deposit process and eliminates the need for mail-in deposit transactions.

Utilizing a Stretto-provided ScanSnap document scanner, Trustees easily deposit checks from any location. Not only is the process simplified with single entry, it eliminates the possibility of delayed or lost checks in the mail.
