Black Knight Financial Service’s LoanSphere Empower loan origination system (LOS) and LoanSphere Expedite Portal will be integrated with Solex, a mobile-capable e-sign solution designed to support digital mortgage capabilities. Solex is delivered by Docutech, a provider of compliance and document technology solutions for mortgage, home equity and consumer lending. The integration with Empower and the suite of e-mortgage solutions available in the Expedite Portal provides users with a more flexible and convenient electronic closing experience.
“Docutech is dedicated to providing lenders with an easy-to-use, comprehensive e-sign process that will enable them to manage their document needs more efficiently while maintaining the highest level of compliance and showing their customers a more modernized loan experience,” said Ty Jenkins, CEO of Docutech. “Given the high volume of lenders utilizing Black Knight’s services, these integrations will bring the mortgage industry one step closer to electronic mortgage processes becoming more widely adopted.”
Utilized by six of the top 20 lenders in the U.S., Empower is available as both an ASP- and lender-hosted loan origination system that supports retail, consumer direct and wholesale channels and helps lenders electronically capture, process and close loans. This integration is also available with Empower Now!, a version of the LOS, that helps mid-market lenders reap the benefits of the powerful Empower LOS, with a greatly streamlined implementation process, resulting in reduced timelines and cost.
The Solex e-sign integration with Empower offers an interface to ConformX, Docutech’s powerful document generation engine, enabling lenders to generate dynamic documents by auto-populating data stored in the LOS. Lenders can then access and administer Solex’s e-sign functionalities directly in the platform to support an accessible, streamlined electronic closing process.
The Expedite Portal is an integrated document collaboration and distribution service that facilitates the secure management, delivery and signature of electronic mortgage documents. The integration of Solex will give joint customers of Black Knight and Docutech access to Solex’s capabilities within the Black Knight platforms, enabling lenders to maintain a seamless document workflow, while providing borrowers with an intuitive e-sign experience that can easily be completed from any device, anywhere, at any time.
“By integrating both Empower and the Expedite Portal with Docutech’s Solex e-sign solution, we are further delivering on the digitized loan process consumers want,” said Jerry Halbrook, president of Black Knight Origination Technologies and Enterprise Business Intelligence. “Together, Black Knight and Docutech are committed to offering innovative lending solutions that facilitate an easier, more convenient loan process for both lenders and consumers.”
