As the US' third-largest wholesale mortgage lender, Homepoint is providing customer experiences that are supporting people at each stage of the homeownership journey - and having the right technology-enabled tools is critical.

Homepoint's Requirements

Homepoint's mission is to simplify the mortgage experience, enabling customers to achieve financially healthy, happy homeownership as early as possible. So, it was critical to Homepoint that the performance monitoring solution provides proactive alerts. System administrators needed to know of issues before users.

In addition, having a detailed analysis of user latency, logon times, and application launch failures were important because without assuring the digital user experience, the investments Homepoint was making in business process improvements would be wasted.

Secure, web-based communication to the Customer Learning Center for tools and resources was also a mandatory requirement. The solution would have to enable secure communication with public cloud providers as well as Citrix Cloud.

Another critical requirement was that the solution should monitor the available drive space on the cloud desktops to avoid triggering event locks. This was critical to ensure that new functionality to users was not interrupted.

So, when they had to assure end-to-end performance, they turned to eG Enterprise Cloud running on AWS.

eG Enterprise's secure architecture for IT monitoring was an important factor for Homepoint. It avoids unnecessarily open ports, communication between the agents and the manager is secured, and the monitor uses standard, secure, modern industry standards for protocols, authentication, and encryption.

The ability to monitor all aspects of Citrix user experience on Citrix Cloud Services as well as the ability to leverage Azure APIs to gather in-depth performance metrics were the deciding factors for Homepoint.
