FieldSmart is the latest in the firm's deep line of valuation products supporting commercial mortgage originations, loan and credit reviews, and portfolio monitoring for commercial banks, investors and servicers.

Similar to ordering other types of reports, clients obtain FieldSmart reports on Boxwood's subscription web site, SmallBalance.com. There are nearly a dozen firms using FieldSmart at the product's launch this month.

"We think FieldSmart's fast start with bank clients reflects their confidence in our capabilities to help them meet their internal production goals, as well as their risk management and compliance objectives," stated Randy Fuchs, Boxwood principal and co-founder. "FieldSmart is a solution that balances these bank interests along with another important consideration - reasonable cost."

Boxwood's new evaluation product harnesses industry-leading data sources and a proven nationwide network of field agents to develop data-rich reports with relevant sales comparables and sales listings, extensive building inspections and photos, detailed adjustment grid and market commentary among other information.
