LendingTree Fully Launches Home Equity Automated Decision Engine

Nationwide Lending Corporation Becomes First Lender to Incorporate LendingTree Home Equity ADE Functionality to Automatically Decision Home Equity Loan Requests Received From the LendingTree Exchange

CHARLOTTE, NC (March 11, 2002) -- LendingTree, Inc. (TREE) , the leading online lending Exchange, today announced that the Company has fully launched its home equity automated decision engine (ADE) with Nationwide Lending Corporation. Nationwide is the first Lender client to incorporate home equity ADE, enabling them to automatically decision home equity loan requests received through the LendingTree Exchange. Nationwide Lending Corporation is one of the earliest LendingTree Exchange participants and has offered home loans through www.lendingtree.com since December 1998.

Home equity ADE, an optional Lend-X(SM) subsystem, significantly lowers loan processing costs by utilizing the Internet to provide an immediate response to consumer loan requests. LendingTree originally developed ADE to streamline and automate the mortgage loan process and is already utilized by a number of Lenders to automatically decision mortgage loans. The addition of home equity ADE to the Lend-X platform will enable companies such as Nationwide to automate their home equity loan offer and counteroffer processes, providing consumers with a more streamlined home loan experience.

"LendingTree ADE technology is a win for Nationwide and a win for the consumer, enabling us to maximize our efficiency when decisioning online home equity loan requests," said Tim Burke, vice president of Nationwide Lending Corporation. "The time we save using LendingTree ADE instead of manually processing consumer information has given us the opportunity to more effectively target consumers who match our lending criteria and provide them instant and customized offers. ADE technology enables us to lower our customer acquisition costs while at the same time providing us more time to interact one-on-one with consumers. The normal position in our industry is to be the 'fastest follower' when it comes to adopting new technology. We believe strongly that the consumer deserves an immediate answer to their home loan request, so being the first to adopt ADE was an easy decision and a great technology fit."

"We have established a great relationship with Nationwide Lending Corporation and their decision to be the first Lender to incorporate LendingTree ADE technology for their home equity product further demonstrates their commitment to providing consumers with competitive loan offers online," said Lori Collins, senior vice president of LendingTree. "By incorporating home equity ADE technology, Nationwide will enjoy a more cost-effective, interactive tool that will allow them to service their home equity consumers more efficiently."

Benefits of the LendingTree ADE technology include:

  • Consistent Product and Pricing Policies -- Through the automation process Lender underwriting policies are applied consistently every time an offer is presented.
  • Instant Offers -- Consumers will receive rapid loan offers within minutes of completing their qualification form.
  • Customized loan offers and counteroffers -- The Home Equity ADE enables Lenders to target consumers who fit their specific loan criteria, thereby providing more competitive, customized loan offers to consumers. The Home Equity ADE can also help Lenders determine multiple alternative offers for the borrower's consideration, enabling them to present a variety of counteroffers to the customer, empowering them to choose the best scenario for his/her circumstances.
