*Wipro Embraces Mobile*
**By Tony Garritano**
***No, I haven’t heard of another LOS acquisition, but I was recently treated to a demo of a new offering. I thought it was very slick. As it turns out, more LOS companies are trying to harness the power of mobile technology. Franklin, Tenn.-based Wipro Gallagher Solutions (WGS), a provider of end-to-end lending solutions for financial institutions, introduced Enterprise Mobile Origination (e.MO), a native iOS lending productivity suite for the iPad, designed to enable sales teams in the field to run and originate new loans of all types. Here’s the scoop:
****The e.MO application integrates with any loan origination system (LOS), including WGS’ NetOxygen LOS, and provides all the tools to keep sales informed and connected to the customer. The application monitors leads and manages all associated contacts through the entire lending process. It maintains lead status, follows up on additional requirements, and requests credit and AVM results while creating a lead. Its alert and notification system monitors borrower activity via user-friendly iPad push notifications for the duration of the lead throughout the entire lending lifecycle.
****The e.MO application positions loan originators as consultants to their customers with its mapping and house price index (HPI) designed to offer well-informed decisioning support to borrowers based on the ability to map their property of choice and compare real estate opportunities in the geographical area.
****e.MO’s built-in calculators compare items, including fixed rate versus variable rate products, loan terms and payments while in the field with a borrower and engages leads with graphical representations of their buying power. Its reporting dashboard easily communicates information to loan officers and compares lead generation using charts representing lead status, lead completion and performance levels within the branch, region and country.
****Other e.MO tools include a product filter that leverages the product and pricing engine of choice and provides significantly reduced turnaround time for the origination process with information readily available on the iPad. Loan information is immediately available to processors, underwriters, funders and closers through the LOS via seamless real-time integration with e.MO.
****“Tablets are shifting the way business is conducted for the entire lending lifecycle, yielding a net effect of improved customer service and satisfaction,” said Narayan Bharadwaj, business head for WGS. “We already offer NetOxygen on the cloud and the extension of our solution to a mobile device further strengthens our value proposition in line with our overall strategy to provide multi-channel, product-agnostic enterprise lending solutions to make the lending process as convenient as possible for borrowers.”
