SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Dec. 4, 2019 – Finicity, a provider of real-time financial data access and insights, and Ellie Mae®, the leading cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry, today announced that Finicity’s digital Verification of Assets (VoA) solution is now available through Ellie Mae’s Encompass® Consumer Connect, part of the Encompass® Digital Lending Platform.
Today’s consumers expect an increasingly simple, fast and accurate application process. This has been made possible by digital solutions such as Finicity’s Verification of Assets which can shorten the application process by as many as 6 days. Now borrowers can access this solution through Encompass Consumer Connect matching an automated, enhanced customer experience with the efficiency of digital verification.
“We believe that consumer expectations are driving the mortgage lending experience to one that is simple and intuitive,” said Steve Smith, CEO and co-founder of Finicity. “We’re excited to partner with Ellie Mae through the Encompass Consumer Connect platform to deliver a next gen experience to borrowers while helping lenders create a more efficient origination process.”
