From Loan Performer Version 8.15 onwards you can implement Loan Performer in a Wide Area Network. You dont need to run Loan Performer from the browser, you can still start up the traditional way and the interface is the same as you are used to. But at login you specify a web address where your database is hosted and that's it! Once you are inside, it is like you are running Loan Performer locally. You can now send your credit officers with a laptop into the field, give them a USB Modem and let them enter transactions remotely. Or you can connect your branch offices and have the update a single database. It offers enormous possibilities.

Try it out
We welcome you to take a test drive. We have put a demo database on our server and we invite you to log in. What should you do to test?
1.       You need to download and install Loan Performer 8.17.
2.       Run the file soapsdk.exe located in C:\LPF817\External Files\SMS Banking.
3.       You then need to open the LPF.INI file in the Loan Performer folder and change the contents to (just copy and paste):

Username=User1
Option=1
Type=SQL
Database=
Language=EN
Webclient=1
WebUrl=http://41.190.137.126:9000/Webservice/
LookUpFolder=c:\lpf817\Lookup\
CheckForUpdates=1
BIOMETRICSLOG=0
AllowDbChange=1

4.       Save the file and start LPF.

As we are many, we cannot all use the default user 'Performer' with password 'LPF' to login. So we created 10 user accounts called User1, User2, User3 etc with passwords that are the same as the user names. So if you cannot login in as User1, try User2 with password ‘User2’ etc untill you get access. Note that we are all branch managers, but we have not made the Configuration screens available for you.

5.       If LPF asks you whether you want to update the Lookup folder answer affirmative.
In case you get the following message:

Description: cid:2.2507612855@web172201.mail.ir2.yahoo.com
then follow the procedures below to determine the cause:

·         Check if the workstation is connected to the internet.
·         Open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or other) and browse to the test url provided above (http://41.190.137.126:9000/Webservice/FoxService?wsdl). Expect to see a page as shown below:
Description: cid:3.2507612855@web172201.mail.ir2.yahoo.com

If you cannot see this page, there is a problem with the connection.
