The Lenders One Mortgage Cooperative, a national alliance of community mortgage bankers, correspondent lenders and suppliers of mortgage products and services, recently announced the selection of Optimal Blue as a new preferred vendor. Optimal Blue, a cloud-based provider of enterprise lending solutions to the mortgage industry, provides mortgage banks, community banks and credit unions the ability to navigate the complex mortgage process from capital markets, to consumers, and back.
“Lenders One is focused on delivering opportunities for our members to be innovative in the communities they originate in and with the borrowers they serve. Optimal Blue fulfills that with its highly-regarded suite of technology offerings that’s been proven to simplify the origination process for borrowers and help attract more customers,” said Jeff McGuiness, CEO of Lenders One.
Optimal Blue offers a suite of innovative services that help mortgage banks, credit unions and community banks improve efficiencies, manage compliance, reach consumers and boost secondary market performance. Consumers are looking for a new approach to the lending process according to recent study from PwC’s Experience Radar research group, which found that more than one-fourth of consumers (28%) are looking for a purely online mortgage experience. Meeting that demand is the cloud-based eOriginations platform that extends the simplification of mortgage originations to consumers through an online mortgage application experience, providing transparency and greatly reducing the time and effort required from prospective borrowers.
“Optimal Blue’s innovative technology greatly improves a lender’s ability to originate compliant mortgages efficiently, and to engage consumers who are increasingly interested in applying for mortgages online,” said Larry Huff, Co-CEO of Optimal Blue. “We look forward to working with Lenders One to help its members become more efficient, competitive, profitable, and equipped for success in today’s evolving mortgage origination market.”
