Ways For Title Agencies To Ensure Faster Closings For Their Lender Clients

Title companies have been under increasing pressure to increase efficiency, while also ensuring regulatory compliance and reducing costs. Across title operations, multiple parties are involved in almost every deal.

eClosings Are Picking Up Steam

Talk of the Digital Mortgage is everywhere. This is the big push for lenders looking to increase efficiency and cut cost. And vendors are stepping in to help lenders achieve this goal. For example, Visionet Systems, has released an enhanced web services integration layer for CD2UCD, a solution that converts Closing Disclosure (CD) images to Uniform Closing Dataset XML.  Visionet will be exhibiting its  solutions at the National Technology in Mortgage Banking Conference & Expo 2017, an event held by the Mortgage Bankers Association at the Hyatt Regency, Chicago from March 26 to 29.

CD2UCD addresses situations where the data required to produce the UCD is not available, such as CDs modified at the closing table and loans acquired through correspondent or bulk channels.  The enhanced interface allows lenders, closing agents, document preparation providers and Loan Origination System (LOS) vendors to easily pass a CD document and the required GSE data fields to the CD2UCD service and receive back a fully GSE-compliant UCD.  CD2UCD also fulfills single and bulk requests via secure web portal and file transfer mechanisms.

“We’ll be discussing our latest enhancements to the CD2UCD platform at MBA Tech 17, and highlighting the important industry problem it addresses,” said Norman Gottschalk, CTO at Visionet. “CD2UCD is the result of two years of investment, collaboration and learning, and we continue to invest in its development.  We look forward to sharing our expertise and experience with our present and future clients and colleagues, and we encourage partnerships and integrations with all industry participants.”

Lenders Look To Gain Efficiency

As the cost to originate increases, lenders need to be more efficient. One way to do that is to automate more within your LOS. For example, Visionet Systems Inc., a leading automated document classification, indexing and data extraction provider for the mortgage industry, has completed an integration with LOS provider LendingQB. The integration enhances operational efficiency by seamlessly automating document management within the mortgage lending workflow.

Visionet Systems has over 20 years of experience in providing businesses with innovative solutions for electronic document processing and Business Process Outsourcing services. Visionet’s VisiLoanReview (VLR) Platform is a solution for mortgage lenders that eliminates the manual splitting and indexing of documents that impedes the loan process. “Lenders spend between 30 and 120 minutes combing through document packages on every loan file,” said Arshad Masood, CEO of Visionet. “Our technology and services allow lenders to offload a cumbersome and tedious process and improve the efficiency and scalability of their organization.”

The integration allows users of the LendingQB system to automatically push electronic documents to VLR for document processing, which splits document packages, indexes individual documents and extracts data elements according to the needs of the LendingQB client. Visionet provides a white glove service which handles all exception processing, including those involving handwritten documents and borrower supplied correspondence. Each document is then mapped to lender-specific naming conventions and automatically inserts the documents back into the LendingQB loan file. Visionet’s clients have reported efficiency gains of 30 percent or more using the VLR platform and services.

Visionet’s Masood agreed. “Visionet is continually enhancing our capabilities for mortgage lenders, and we welcome opportunities to partner with leading LOS providers like LendingQB.  We look forward to providing LendingQB’s clients with the proven process efficiencies provided by our unmatched technology and people.”
