McDonald Computer Corporation was founded in April 1976 to specialize exclusively in providing data processing services to the mortgage banking industry. Since our inception, we have never deviated from our original objectives and goals. We have remained consistently dedicated to the mortgage banking industry.
We are the oldest privately owned mortgage servicing software company in the United States. Initially, our main services included consulting, systems, programming, software and facilities management. We sold and installed several mortgage servicing computer systems, running on various vendor hardware, throughout the United States. Our unique advantage was an ability to customize our software to fit the needs of our customers. In August 1979, we expanded our services to include on-line computer processing from our offices in downtown Detroit, Michigan. We continued to market our mortgage servicing software while working to build our on-line, real-time servicing base.
In October 1984, we expanded our computer services by opening an office in Orlando, Florida.
In July 1986, we relocated our corporate data center to Southfield, Michigan, a northern suburb of Detroit. Our systems development and support staff is located in this facility.
In January of 1999 we began offering the myloaninfo ® web based customer service application.
In December 2008 we announced the availability of Web/T.I.M.E ®.
All of our systems — Web/T.I.M.E ® and myloaninfo ® operate in an on-line real time mode. We have taken great care to ensure consistency and standardization of screen procedures and report formats.
Our systems are user oriented; they require a minimum of user input coding, while generating a maximum number of internal controls.
Simplicity of use is one of our main goals. Blaise Pascal once wrote apologetically, “I have made this letter longer than usual, only because I have not had the time to make it shorter.” We too believe in this philosophy, that brevity and compactness require planning and patience–but the results are worth it. We are constantly striving to simplify, improve, and enhance our systems.
The mortgage banking industry is very dynamic, requiring flexibility, knowledge, experience, dedication and commitment in order to succeed. We have succeeded and intend to continue to succeed at even higher levels in the years to come.
