*We Are All Connected*
**By Tony Garritano**
***As talk about the elections in Greece this weekend heat up I’m reminded of how connected we are. Something that happens far off in Greece could spur another world economic crisis. The mortgage process is similar. Some lenders think about it as an assembly line, but it’s not because several steps can and should be happening at the same time. Originating a mortgage is more about constructing parallel workflows instead of a traditional assembly line. In order to do that though, technology has to connect all the players.
