SimpleNexus launches ConnectUs Chat to facilitate real-time loan file collaboration between loan teams, borrowers and real estate agents

LEHI, Utah -- SimpleNexus (https://simplenexus.com/), developer of the leading digital mortgage platform for loan officers, borrowers and real estate agents, today announced the release of SimpleNexus ConnectUs Chat, a messaging feature that enables real-time loan file collaboration between loan originators (LOs), borrowers and real estate agents within the SimpleNexus platform.

SimpleNexus ConnectUs Chat centralizes loan file communication, making it easy for LOs and borrowers to reference past conversations and collaboratively advance loan progress in real time using the SimpleNexus mobile app or desktop experience. This direct communication channel lets borrowers receive support in the same place they sign forms and submit documentation for their loan. Vital borrower conversations are automatically logged in the SimpleNexus app, eliminating the need for LOs to consolidate communications from various personal and business communication channels.

SimpleNexus plans to enhance ConnectUs Chat with the introduction of two additional features later this year. The Team Members feature will connect extended loan teams to ConnectUs Chat, improving borrower access to support and facilitating internal loan team communication. Another update will allow parties to communicate "in context" by integrating loan file screenshots into the chat window.

"ConnectUs Chat boosts lender productivity by bringing loan tasks and borrower communication together in one place without detracting from the high-touch, 'from anywhere' loan experience consumers expect," said SimpleNexus Senior Product Manager Tyler Prows. "Our customers' enthusiastic response to ConnectUs Chat is a testament to the SimpleNexus product team's focus on developing innovative features that meet the needs of the market."

ConnectUs Chat marks the most recent in a series of SimpleNexus product releases that enhance lenders' ability to collaborate with stakeholders in the loan production process from anywhere. Notably, SimpleNexus Disclosures, introduced last year, allows borrowers to eSign disclosures and lenders to distribute individual closing packages to settlement partners for online retrieval. The May 2020 release of SimpleNexus Closing Portal enables mortgage closing teams to conduct hybrid closings that minimize the need for physical closing appointments.

About SimpleNexus, LLC:

SimpleNexus is the digital mortgage platform that enables lenders to originate and process loans from anywhere. The company's best-in-class, easy-to-use app connects loan officers to their borrowers and real estate agents to easily communicate and exchange data in a single location throughout the entire loan life cycle.

OpenClose Launches Corporate Website to Reflect New Positioning of its Enterprise-class, Multi-channel LOS and Mortgage Software Solutions

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- OpenClose, a multi-channel loan origination system (LOS) and mortgage software solutions provider, announced it unveiled a new corporate website to better position the company's expanded enterprise-class solution set, customer profile focus and long-term value proposition.

"We've grown exponentially over the past five years, and as such, had a need to ensure that the positioning of OpenClose as a company and its products are in line with our corporate mission, business strategy, customer commitment and ongoing technology innovation efforts," explains JP Kelly, president of OpenClose. "This new website is designed to clearly convey our comprehensive solution offering and our ability to cater to top 20 lenders that have multiple business channels and complex operations."

OpenClose offers one of the mortgage industry's only 100 percent browser-based LOS platforms that has robust multi-channel automation capability. The company's LenderAssist(TM) LOS and other solutions were all engineered from the ground up using the same code base, and it has been owned and operated by the same principles since the company was founded in 1999. Unlike many LOS vendors, LenderAssist's comprehensive end-to-end functionality was not created by way of multiple acquisitions, which typically rope together disparate technologies that can be prone to issues; or, via integrations with many third party vendors that are done in order to make up for system deficiencies.

Vince Furey, SVP of lending solutions at OpenClose, stated: "We have been boarding top-tier, very large lending entities that are successfully leveraging our LOS as a centralized platform to automate all business channels and workflows. Our new positioning showcases the immense power that OpenClose's enterprise-class mortgage software solutions offer and how they are very flexible, scalable and well-supported by our staff. While we have the proven scalability to support the largest national lenders, OpenClose is really the ideal solution and long-term technology partner for any size lending organization."

Key aspects of OpenClose's value proposition include: quick implementations; custom-configurable with easy set up; seamless workflow-driven automation with no manual intervention; fully web-based with no installs whatsoever; fully SaaS and Cloud-based technology; proven scalability; single code; hands-on implementations and system training; and second to none, boutique-style customer support.

OpenClose solutions include its LenderAssist(TM) LOS, DecisionAssist(TM) product and pricing engine (PPE), turnkey OC Correspondent(TM) conduit module, ConsumerAssist(TM) borrower-direct websites, OC Optics(TM) analytics and reporting software, and mobile technology.

IDS Adds Pushback Notifications to Interface with Byte Software

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Mortgage document preparation vendor International Document Services, Inc. (IDS), announced it has added pushback notifications to its existing interface with BytePro Enterprise, the flagship loan origination software (LOS) platform from Byte Software. Through this enhancement, BytePro users will receive mortgage documents and fulfillment status notifications within the LOS platform.

"Working between multiple systems to execute the loan production process is both inconvenient and inefficient, and it significantly increases the likelihood of errors," said Mark Mackey, vice president of IDS. "Every integration IDS builds with its LOS partners is designed to streamline and safeguard the exchange of data between systems, allowing lenders to work within their LOS platform as much as possible. Adding the pushback notification feature to IDS's interface with Byte is yet another step in the on-going process to perfect the LOS-doc prep interaction."

In addition to returning and indexing executed documents, the pushback feature allows IDS to push Fulfillment XML notifications directly through the BytePro platform. Notifications that BytePro users can choose to receive include:

* When the document package is sent to fulfillment;
* When a borrower accepts or revokes eConsent;
* When borrowers download and/or eSign documents;
* When the eSign process has been by all parties; or
* When the documents are mailed.

Pushback events automatically update corresponding disclosure log entries in BytePro, eliminating reliance on hand-keyed entries and helping to assure that compliance timelines are calculated accurately and reliably.

"We're exceptionally proud of the seamless and complete nature of our enhanced integration with IDS," said Mark Todd, national sales and client services manager for Byte Software. "I think it demonstrates the commitment our organizations share to create competitive advantage for our mutual clients."

About Byte Software:
Since 1985 Byte Software has delivered innovative products that provide unprecedented control over the loan manufacturing process, as well as enhance the customer experience. The BytePro platform is trusted by over a thousand banks, credit unions, mortgage bankers and brokers to efficiently move loans from application to secondary loan sale.
