Mortgage Bankers Make LOS Choices

Recent LOS activity

April 10, 2015

Several home lenders have made recent decisions about their loan origination systems. For those who remain undecided, recent LOS enhancements could sway their decisions.

In February, Black Knight Financial Services released Empower 5.0. The enhanced technology enables lenders to begin system testing ahead of the August deadline for implementation of integrated disclosures.

Jacksonville, Florida-based Black Knight noted that the updated version helps its clients can gain insight into how the changes will impact their operations, processes and training requirements.

In addition, changes to work flow can be observed, and any necessary changes can be made, Black Knight added.

"Empower 5.0 will integrate with a collaborative closing portal delivered through Closing Insight, a new solution developed by Black Knight's RealEC Technologies division," the press release stated. "Once in production, Closing Insight will provide an electronic, workflow-driven approval process and a collaborative closing service that will streamline the reconciliation of fees for initial and final loan closing disclosures between lenders, settlement agents and other service providers."

Empower is "used by six of the top 20 lenders in the United States," the statement said.

A seven-year contract was reached for Stearns Lending LLC to utilize the Empower LOS product for retail and wholesale originations and LendingSpace for correspondent acquisitions, Black Knight announced last month.

Mortgage insurance products offered by National Mortgage Insurance Corp. are available through the Architect LOS. National M.I. is also integrated into Blueprint for digital document management.

Both technologies being integrated by the Emeryville, California-based mortgage insurance company are part of the Mortgage Builder platform.

National M.I. is the only private mortgage insurer integrated into Blueprint.

First Mortgage Corp. has joined the Calyx Network as a new lender, while LoanTek was added as a new vendor.

The Encompass all-in-one mortgage management solution is now being used by Independent Bank as its origination platform, Ellie Mae inc. announced.

Ionia, Michigan-based Independent Bank dumped its origination technology of 16 years, noting that compliance with required new disclosures was a factor.

Ellie, a Mortgage Daily advertiser, was reportedly one of three alternatives considered by Independent Bank. Ellie's integrated compliance features convinced the bank to use Encompass. Another deciding factor was Encompass' ability to interface with the bank's existing core systems.

The online lending platform Morgagebot, now known as D+H, will be provided to members of the Independent Community Bankers of America at a discount thanks to D+H's continued designation as a "premier value provider."
