Digital Mortgage Platform Maxwell Announces Partnership with Mortgage Loan Origination System Byte Software

DENVER, Colo. -- Today, digital mortgage platform and fulfillment provider Maxwell Financial Labs, Inc. announced that it has partnered with Byte Software, a mortgage loan origination system that streamlines the mortgage production process.

With the establishment of this partnership, Maxwell's digital mortgage point-of-sale will connect to Byte's loan origination system via an API integration.

"Byte's best-of-breed approach provides consistency in business operations, even as production methods are rapidly evolving," commented Mark Todd, National Sales Manager at Byte. "The addition of an innovative partner like Maxwell will further enable our customers to quickly and easily adopt emerging digital strategies."

The integration of Maxwell and Byte will allow users to seamlessly connect their data and work within Maxwell with their LOS, creating a simple, intuitive process for lenders and borrowers. This includes acceptance of the new URLA 3.4 compliant loan application. This connectivity is critical in Maxwell's commitment to a relationship-focused mortgage experience, allowing the lending team to spend more time providing vital expertise to the borrower and performing value-add activities rather than working on lower-impact tasks.

"We're thrilled to unveil our partnership with Byte," said Maxwell Co-founder and CEO John Paasonen. "This key integration with Byte's LOS as the system-of-record with Maxwell's impactful point-of-sale platform will allow us to improve borrower experience, empower more lenders to save time, streamline processes, and increase productivity with our mutual customers."

Maxwell's robust integrations and partnerships enable lenders to accelerate the mortgage lending process from application to underwriting so loan officers can focus on the human relationship at the center of the mortgage journey. Today, hundreds of lenders across the U.S. use Maxwell to originate nearly $6 billion in mortgage loans each month at a closing rate 45 percent faster than the national average.

Baxter Clewis Consulting to Partner with PCI Security Standards Council to Help Secure Payment Data Worldwide

DALLAS, Texas -- Baxter Clewis Consulting, an international consultancy on cyber security, announced today that it has joined the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) as a new Participating Organization. Baxter Clewis will work with the PCI SSC to help secure payment data worldwide through the ongoing development and adoption of the PCI Security Standards.

"By joining as a Participating Organization, Baxter Clewis demonstrates they are playing an active part in improving payment security globally by helping drive awareness and adoption of PCI Security Standards."

"Using third-party service providers is an organizational risk from a supply chain, security, and compliance standpoint.

RED BANK, N.J. -- SIRVA, a worldwide relocation and moving services company based out of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today a partnership that will help provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the United States.

As a partner, SIRVA will support Move For Hunger's food rescue and hunger relief programs. To date, Move For Hunger's network of relocation professionals and multi-family properties has collected and delivered more than 22 million pounds of food - providing over 18 million meals - to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.

"We are excited to renew our partnership with SIRVA, as they play an influential role in helping us reach our goal of decreasing food insecurity nationwide," says Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "With their resources and ours, we are able to continue to work to reach our goal of decreasing hunger throughout America."

Move For Hunger and SIRVA have been partners since 2017 and with their financial commitments, they've helped provide over 200,000 meals to those in need. SIRVA prides itself on committing to being part of the solution and is the parent company for North American Van Lines and Allied Van Lines, who are also partners of Move For Hunger.

"For many years, SIRVA and its agents and drivers from Allied Van Lines and North American Van Lines have supported the Move for Hunger mission to reduce food waste and fight hunger," said Brian Risley, SIRVA's SVP for Moving Services. "During the global pandemic, as food insecurity has increased, the need for this service has never been greater. SIRVA is proud to continue our partnership with Move for Hunger in 2021 and sends our appreciation and encouragement to the Move For Hunger staff, to our networks, and to our industry. SIRVA is very pleased to continue to advance this common-sense and sustainable means of providing emergency food assistance to those in need."

Over the past 12 months, the need for food has only increased. Due to the pandemic, 5 million more people in the United States are considered food insecure with the total number rising from 37 million to 42 according to a recent report. Through the support of partners like SIRVA, Move For Hunger can continue to feed and empower more to fight for the families and vulnerable communities who are most in need of food assistance.

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Top of Mind Networks (Top of Mind), a leader in customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing automation software for the mortgage lending industry, today announced an integration between its Surefire CRM and the LendingPad(r) suite of loan origination solutions (LOS).

The direct API connection enables real-time sharing of contact records and loan milestones between LendingPad and Surefire CRM, which in turn allows lenders to automate the delivery of personalized communication that enhances the loan applicant experience and keeps deals moving forward.

The system can automatically "nudge" applicants who need to submit documents to complete their loan applications. And once an application is complete, Surefire CRM keeps all stakeholders up to date on the loan's status at every stage in the origination process, eliminating the need for borrowers and loan originators to play phone tag.

"We've been hearing from more lenders as well as independent mortgage brokers that LendingPad has become their LOS of choice thanks to its quick speed-to-value and smooth URLA execution," said Top of Mind CEO Bill Hayes. "We have responded swiftly to that market demand with a seamless integration that lets lenders combine the agility and efficiency of LendingPad with the power of industry-leading marketing automation tools and dynamic content from Surefire CRM."

LendingPad offers a full suite of cloud-based LOS solutions for mortgage brokers, independent mortgage companies, banks and credit unions with fast implementation and flexible pricing that scales to teams of any size, from just a few users to enterprise institutions. Each edition of the LendingPad LOS fully supports the redesigned Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA) and is Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) v3.4 compliant.

"LendingPad is an agile, modern LOS with a commitment to serving mortgage lenders - and helping them compete - woven into our DNA," said LendingPad Managing Director Wes Yuan. "Our integration with Top of Mind's Surefire CRM delivers on that commitment by enabling originators to stay engaged with borrowers throughout the loan process in a way that's both personal and efficient."

About Top of Mind Networks:

Founded in 2003, Atlanta-based Top of Mind Networks ( https://www.topofmind.com ) started as a bootstrapped direct-mail marketing company. Today, the company is recognized as the mortgage industry's most-relied-upon provider of marketing automation and creative content solutions.

Sales Boomerang and Usherpa Expand Partnership to Set Mortgage Lenders Up for Success in 2021 Purchase Market

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sales Boomerang, the industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, has expanded its partnership with Usherpa, a marketing and customer relationship management (CRM) platform for Realtors and mortgage lenders. Sales Boomerang's automated borrower intelligence is now integrated with Usherpa's newest feature, a FCRA- and RESPA-compliant co-marketing portal that helps lenders expand the nature and depth of their referral partnerships with Realtors.

The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) prohibits lenders and real estate partners from engaging in quid pro quo referral relationships, a guideline that has made it difficult for lenders and their agents to co-brand marketing materials in a compliant and cost-effective fashion. Usherpa's new co-marketing portal solves this problem by making it easier than ever for loan officers and Realtors to share the cost of creating and distributing co-branded marketing materials to their shared customer database in a compliant manner. By leveraging Usherpa's integration with Sales Boomerang's automated borrower intelligence, lenders can receive actionable, real-time alerts whenever someone in their database - or their referral partner's database within the co-marketing portal- is ready for a loan.

As soon as a customer becomes a candidate for a loan - because they've improved their credit score, market rates have changed or their home has accrued sufficient equity, for example - Sales Boomerang notifies the lender, who can then initiate marketing outreach that is co-branded with the Realtor's information. The marketing campaigns can be automated using pre-written marketing content created by Usherpa's experienced staff of industry experts or customized to meet individual company needs.

"The enhanced integration between Usherpa and Sales Boomerang is a win-win for loan officers and Realtors looking to take their referral partnerships to the next level," said Sales Boomerang CEO Alex Kutsishin. "The loan officer and Realtor share database information within the Usherpa co-marketing portal, we find the loan opportunities and Usherpa automates compliant and effective co-marketing outreach."

"Our customers have been looking for a more effective way to co-market with Realtor partners that is fully RESPA- and FCRA-compliant," said Usherpa Director of Business Development Paul Harrington. "Not only have we delivered what the doctor ordered, we've also enhanced it with the best opportunity alerts in the business thanks to our partnership with Sales Boomerang."

"Eustis Mortgage has developed a prosperous Realtor Success Program using the Sales Boomerang and Usherpa co-marketing portal," said Stephen Barton, SVP of National Retail Growth at Eustis Mortgage. "In just three quarters, our loan officers generated an average of more than $16 million per month in additional revenue."

About Usherpa:

Usherpa has been serving the mortgage and real estate industry since 1995, when it was founded as Media Center LLC.
