Add-On Modules

Your specific lending environment should dictate which modules are critical to your mission. DLM is flexible; you can add modules as your program expands to meet your requirements and your budget. Some modules have not yet been completed for the Cloud Edition; for these we have provided estimated release dates.

Pricing for DLM Cloud Edition is by monthly subscription.

For current clients who are still using our legacy DLM Desktop Edition, we’ll make the transition to DLM Cloud Edition easy for you when all the modules you need are available. Your financial investment in the desktop will carry over to the subscriptions and services you order from our cloud-based system.
