Optimal Blue, a cloud-based provider of enterprise lending services to the mortgage industry, recently hosted a gathering of lenders, vendors, industry experts and leaders at their 2015 Client Conference. The conference featured more than 30 industry experts, and over 80 exhibitor and sponsor attendees. Among other things discussed, the company launched a new product. Here’s what happened:
Themed “Instruments of Change,” this year’s conference focused on empowering users through managed-content workflow services. Hundreds Optimal Blue customers were able to preview multiple new innovative services, learn more about the services through in-depth feature discussions, as well as enjoy topical panels and educational sessions.
“This is my second year attending the Optimal Blue Client Conference and it keeps getting better,” said Juan Rodas, SVP of Secondary Marketing for First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation. “It is very exciting to see all of the new things that Optimal Blue is working on, and to engage in peer to peer discussions regarding important industry topics. Knowing that our comments and ideas as customers are truly taken into consideration during enhancements and designs makes it a worthwhile conference to participate in.”
An exciting highlight of this year’s conference was the introduction of QuickSearch, a privately branded mortgage pricing app for mobile devices. Backed by the guaranteed accuracy of the premier product and pricing engine, Optimal Blue Banker, QuickSearch allows loan officers to perform real-time pricing searches for their borrower at anytime, anywhere. A configurable quick search form displays the fields that are most important and relevant to the company’s business while configurable results are displayed based on unique product offerings.
Larry Huff, co-Founder and co-CEO of Optimal Blue, states, “We hope our customers leave the conference feeling connected and informed, with a deeper understanding of our commitment to innovation that drives Optimal Blue, as well as our commitment to quality and providing customers with services that will further drive business efficiency, profitability, and compliance.”
