Finicity Integrates with LendingQB to Optimize Mortgage Origination Process
Finicity’s digital verification report provides a faster process and more pleasing customer experience
SALT LAKE CITY – June 20, 2019 – Finicity, a leading provider of real-time financial data access and insights, announced today an integration with LendingQB, a leading provider of SaaS loan origination technology solutions. LendingQB’s platform now uses Finicity’s digital Verification of Assets (VoA) solution to allow lenders to free up resources, increase processing speed and reduce mortgage fraud while providing borrowers with a more efficient and positive experience.
“Digitizing the loan origination process is the key to the future of lending,” said Steve Smith, Finicity CEO. “We’re proud to be one of the tech providers behind this movement and are glad to work with leading digital loan originators like LendingQB to help the industry evolve and improve the experiences for lenders and borrowers alike.”
LendingQB provides solutions that help mortgage lenders reduce costs, maintain compliance and increase profitability, while still putting their customers first. This comes from LendingQB’s unique approach to loan origination system building — layering its core platform with best-of-breed components to create the ideal solution for each lender.
“At LendingQB, we pride ourselves on our ability to seek out the best technology and partnerships to combine with our solution,” said Tim Nguyen, CEO of MeridianLink, the parent company of LendingQB. “This creates a competitive advantage for lenders that delivers a more meaningful experience to the people that really matter: borrowers.”
Both Finicity’s verification solutions are delivered under the CRA framework, which allows borrowers to directly obtain information on reports or resolve discrepancies. Finicity’s status as a registered CRA is a symbol of its commitment to consumer control and empowerment, as well as its dedication to the requirements of the lending space.
Finicity is an authorized, integrated provider of asset verification reports within Fannie Mae’s Desktop Underwriter® (DU®). This gives lenders a validated asset report through Fannie Mae’s Day 1 Certainty™ initiative. Finicity is also part of the Single Source Validation (SSV) pilot, meaning Fannie Mae will utilize transaction data from Finicity reports to validate assets, income and employment.
Finicity is also a Freddie Mac Asset and Income Modeler (AIM) service provider for assets and income, and Freddie Mac and Finicity are working together on new methods to validate income and employment from payroll deposit data.
