Rain City Capital – Customer Success Story

“Today, we come in in the morning and run an auto match, do a couple of manual operations, and we’re done with the reconciliation for the previous day. It takes us about 15 minutes.”

Client Background

Founded in 2009 in Washington State, Rain City Capital is a leading hard money lender that serves real estate investors and professionals. Rain City Capital is one of the largest lenders in the Seattle area, funding investors’ property purchases at the foreclosure auction, from financial institutions, at wholesale, or through traditional channels. Since 2009, the company has funded over $750 Million in loans for rehabs, short sales, escrow and auction purchases, in over 4000 transactions. Rain City Capital prides itself in offering simple, borrower-friendly services, and has a strong commitment to integrity in lending practices.

Financial Services is a strong segment at ReconArt, due to the natural fit of our solution with the typical high volumes, transaction complexity, and systems and data source variety that is typical for the industry. ReconArt is proud to help support the financial operations of a dynamic and modern lender like Rain City Capital.

Process Overview

Like many companies, Rain City Capital relied on a mostly manual process to handle their bank account reconciliations. The team was becoming increasingly aware of the significant time and resource investment their manual reconciliation required at month-end, while still leaving the door open for error. They decided to survey the market for suitable solutions, and quickly settled on ReconArt with main focus on its robust functionality, ease of use, and reasonable price point.

With the implementation of ReconArt, Rain City Capital was able to exponentially speed up their reconciliation process and eliminate the opportunity for error by leveraging ReconArt’s powerful automation features.

“Today, we come in in the morning and run an auto match, do a couple of manual operations, and we’re done with the reconciliation for the previous day. It takes us about 15 minutes. This used to be a 50-hour effort once a month before, so we’re in a great place.”
-Rob Hartley, Director of IT

Transitioning from a monthly to a daily process also allows the team to quickly address real issues (that are not attributable to timing delay) rather than dealing with a buildup of data and exceptions at the end of each month. Rain City Capital is a company that prides itself on quick, reliable lending to its customers and ReconArt helps facilitate a similar approach to internal reconciliations at the company.

Specific Benefits achieved with ReconArt

  • Massive reduction in time spent performing manual download, data manipulation and matching
  • Streamlined and fully auditable reconciliation process
  • Increased overall visibility and control over exception status
  • Ability and knowledge to effectively maintain solution after implementation

With the company’s main bank-related reconciliation activity now fully onboarded to ReconArt, the team is focused on getting used to their new process. Thanks to ReconArt’s train-the-trainer approach, the team feels confident in expanding use to other types of accounts and system features related to furthering automation, exception categorization, and reporting. Working with the team at Rain City Capital was also a great experience for Kevin Shanahan, Product Specialist at ReconArt:

“Rain City Capital showcased their agility through working rapidly to complete the project, always providing the necessary resources as needed. They were effective in communication and logistics with establishing both external and internal data connections, efficient in their testing and evaluation of the ReconArt workflow, and dedicated to becoming self-sufficient post implementation.”
– Kevin Shanahan, ReconArt Product Specialist

“ReconArt is a user-friendly reconciliation solution and that was one of the reasons why we chose it over other vendors.”

About

Remittances represent a 600-billion-dollar market globally – mostly money transfers to friends and family abroad. In the past, remittances required a network of partners that could accept and pay out physical cash and on
