**New Features Are Launched**

***FHA continues to be a big part of the mortgage lending space. FHA’s share is very strong. To this end, vendors are looking to launch new ways to make it easier and more cost effective for lenders to deal with FHA. In this case, PROGRESS in Lending has been told that origination vendor LendingQB announced that its PriceMyLoan automated underwriting systems (AUS) interface with the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) TOTAL Scorecard platform can be utilized to decision and sell loans direct to Ginnie Mae.

****Ginnie Mae issuers can utilize LendingQB’s interface with TOTAL Scorecard in one of two ways. First, if a lender has already implemented and is actively using LendingQB’s AUS to underwrite all types of loans, they also have automatic access to the interface and can begin using it immediately. Second, if a lender is not already using LendingQB’s platform, Web services are available to allow them to access the interface from within their existing loan origination system (LOS) without having to purchase any additional software.

****“Ginnie Mae issuers represent a sizable portion of the FHA market and are continuing to play a vital role in originating quality FHA loans,” said Binh Dang, president of LendingQB. “Lenders that are interested in taking advantage of our AUS’ interface with TOTAL Scorecard can seamlessly connect to our platform to return instant, accurate decisioning on FHA products. Our offering provides lenders with another option to efficiently and cost effectively underwrite FHA loans that are specific to Ginnie Mae issuers.”

****LendingQB’s platform is completely Web-based and is comprised of LO, broker, and consumer direct point-of-sale Web portals for all lending channels; product and pricing engine; PriceMyLoan AUS; loan processing; electronic documents, closing; secondary marketing; and interim servicing. LendingQB also accompanies business intelligence (BI) and data analytics functionality along with detailed reporting that helps lenders locate and translate their data into actionable information, enabling them to make informed business decisions that establishes a competitive advantage and leads to greater profitability.

Market Analysis: A New LOS Debuts

***A New LOS has hit the market. Automated underwriting and loan pricing technology provider PriceMyLoan has launched LendingQB, a 100% web browser-based mortgage lending platform. “With LendingQB, we believe we are doing more than just providing a ‘cloud computing’ loan origination system,” said Binh Dang, LendingQB’s managing partner. “We believe we are fundamentally changing the way that lenders use technology.” Here’s the scoop:

****Since 2004, PriceMyLoan has been providing lenders with technology to automate the underwriting and pricing of their loans. Over the past seven years, PriceMyLoan has had the unique opportunity to work closely with their clients and carefully observe their utilization of technology. “Each one of our clients had a valuable LOS story to tell us,” said Gigi Campbell, national sales director for LendingQB. “What became evident is their desire for a ‘one-stop shop’ lending system, and a system that would adapt to the way they work.”

****To that end, LendingQB was built to include a list of features, such as electronic documents with e-signatures; a full complement of tools for loan processing, underwriting, secondary marketing, closing and post-closing; and specialized tools for wholesale and retail environments, such as broker website portals and online consumer loan applications. Naturally, PriceMyLoan powers the automated underwriting and loan pricing aspects of the LendingQB platform.

****But the most innovative feature of LendingQB is not their technology, but the way that they work with their clients, says PriceMyLoan. “Lenders need more than just a piece of software,” said Campbell. “They need a technology partner that is willing to listen and respond to their specific needs. That’s the true value of our web-based model. We can reach directly into a client’s system and instantly deploy any changes they request. It creates a truly customized experience that molds to their particular workflow.”

****LendingQB positions itself as more than a technology provider; they want to be an active part of a lender’s team. “As a lending quarterback, we want to take the field with our clients and help lead them to success,” said Campbell. “Give us the ball and we’ll execute the plays that lead to higher productivity, higher profits and better business performance overall.”
