In my experience, Servicelink (formerly LPS) is the best Nat, I hear good things about NFR, but that's it.. Im not really interested in working with any others.
I would put NFR above ServiceLink (formerly LPS), Both are good, but SL/LPS has huge volume and I like the fact that i get to run my own CE, unlike NFR wont let you run your own CE. They are committed to running their own CE, which really is a pain in the arse because they short change the banks for the most part not always but mostly. NFR could get a lot more money for from their CE if they were better trained on using it.
But they make up for it by always having a contact person on each work order to answer questions as they arise while in the field. Which solves major problem before they make it to the office.
Where as SL/LPS you have go thru to many people to get an answer. Plus with SL/LPS you have to stay on your top of your game our they will hand your arse on a silver platter right quick like. And for sure the pay is their most always on time, I don't know about you JDRM, but we just got flooded with wints Friday and today from SL/LPS.
And i just found out SG Just lost all of GA for WF, cant say where it went yet, because im not allowed to, but i do know for sure its gone.
But the thing with SL/LPS is if you want their work you better cover the whole state, or you will get your arse run over like road kill. If just they would quit bugging me about taking on more area i think we would get along better. If you knew how much crap i fix from the regionals they use you would shake your head in disbelief.
But SL/LPS volume is damn huge everywhere. But I still like NFR much better. They treat me very well always. Their CS dept is the best Ive ever run across.
When they say their going to do something they do it.
