Matic, a digital insurance agency whose technology enables borrowers to purchase homeowner’s insurance during the mortgage transaction, today announced a wide-ranging integration with RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corporation (RoundPoint), a mortgage loan originator and one of the nation’s largest non-bank mortgage servicing companies. The integration will make Matic’s one-click “get quote” button available to both customers and employees of RoundPoint.
RoundPoint services over $75 billion worth of mortgage assets as a fully licensed subservicer for commercial banks, credit unions, mortgage companies and hedge funds.
Now, homeowners whose mortgages are serviced by RoundPoint will be notified by Matic when they could save money by switching to a different A-rated homeowner’s insurance carrier. Homeowners will also be alerted if there’s an opportunity to get more coverage without an increase in premium.
“Mortgage servicers rarely get to call their customers and offer a lower escrow payment or more comprehensive insurance coverage without a premium increase — yet these are exactly the kinds of opportunities Matic will bring to RoundPoint customers every day,” said Matic COO Benjamin Madick.
RoundPoint will also make Matic available to homebuyers applying for a mortgage loan through the company’s retail mortgage lending division. In addition, Matic will be available to RoundPoint employees via a private-labeled web portal.
“The fact that RoundPoint is making Matic available not only to our mortgage origination and servicing customers, but also to our employees, is a testament to our enthusiasm for Matic’s innovative homeowner’s insurance experience,” said RoundPoint CEO Kevin Brungardt.
“Matic is a key component of our Homeownership Marketplace initiative, which provides products and services that provide value, save money and enhance the overall experience for borrowers,” added Brungardt. “Our long-term goal is for every customer to custom-tailor his or her own Personal Household Economy™ within this Marketplace. The timing is perfect as we just officially launched this effort with an overhaul of our website, customer portals and overall customer experience.”
