At WALZ, we believe you can't put a dollar amount on experience, and that the most valuable asset is a strong relationship with a partner you can trust.
The Walz Group is passionate about understanding our clients. We remain the premier provider of compliance technology by listening to the businesses we serve, pinpointing their needs, and building tailored solutions that comply with federal and state regulations.
As the most frequently chosen trusted advisor among the top 10 mortgage servicers in the U.S. and 25 of the Fortune 100, the Walz Group has built an industry by saving our clients time and money while offering them peace of mind as an authority in secure, compliant communications.
True to our core beliefs, we take our clients’ pain personally. As a team, we bring unparalleled expertise to the table, along with the passion to innovate that made us what we are today.
In May 2015, WALZ was acquired by LenderLive, a domestic-based mortgage services provider that offers the scale, experience, and security to support its clients' origination, servicing and loan purchase operations.
While providing strong complementary services to LenderLive in the areas of loss mitigation and mortgage origination, WALZ remains a stand-alone division focused on a range of businesses in highly regulated industries facing stringent and ever-changing compliance requirements.
Inspiration Strikes at the Oddest Moment — In this case, while stuck in traffic on the drive home from Los Angeles. It started with a thought:“There had to be a better way to do Certified Mail ®…”
The year was 1983, and WALZ was immersed in automating the California trustee industry with its document generation technology to process foreclosures. Meanwhile, businesses around the country were still using typewriters or hand writing to complete their Certified Mail paperwork.
Rod Walz, founder of the Walz Group, had already introduced a form set for automating Certified Mail in the foreclosure industry, and his inspiration was to take it national. The idea took off like wildfire.
Our history since could be a case study in how the right technology makes businesses more efficient. By placing clients’ needs before the bottom line, WALZ has earned a reputation for critical problem solving, at every level, from the mail room to the board room.
Our earliest patents revolutionized the way people used Certified Mail. Later, in 1990, WALZ pioneered office tracking automation with the creation of the Walz Item Tracking System. [WITS]
We further expanded our contributions in 2002, when we partnered with a national mortgage servicer to process and manage their critical documents with our data, mailing and compliance services.
The tradition continues today, with pace-setting technology, passion, and expertise that help keep you in step with the escalating demands of staying compliant.
For over 30 years, we have had one goal: to give you peace-of-mind in your critical communication.
Woven into the fabric of our company is the belief that generosity and success go hand-in-hand, and we are dedicated to supporting charitable causes that serve our local community and change lives.
