ReverseVision Unveils New Tech Strategy with Major Platform Updates and Brand Transformation at 2019 MBA Annual Conference

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- ReverseVision, the leading provider of Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) and private reverse mortgage sales and origination technology, today announced its transformation as an API-enabled flexible reverse lending platform, unveiling a new logo as part of its revised mission and rebranding.

ReverseVision technology supports more reverse mortgage transactions than all other systems combined. Its revised approach and associated system updates reflect ReverseVision's commitment to evolving platform functionality and equipping every lender-forward and reverse-with tools to easily integrate HECM and private reverse mortgages into the loan evaluation, sales and origination process for every applicable senior borrower.

"The ReverseVision platform is transforming to enable a broader range of implementations matching lenders' business models. We are enabling all lenders to meet borrowers where they are in life," said ReverseVision Vice President of Sales and Marketing Wendy Peel. "Our revised API-enabled platform offers an operationally pragmatic approach to reverse home equity products."

"By providing open APIs that accelerate connectivity with all mortgage lending and retirement planning systems, we are powering greater integration and use of reverse lending in the mortgage ecosystem. New technology partnerships with leading digital mortgage firms will greatly expand presentation and demand for reverse lending. We seek to put tools in the hands of every lender that wants to create borrowers for life with a comprehensive Generational Lending strategy," added Peel.

Initial system capabilities provided by the revised platform include:

* Loan Import API
The development of a loan import API enables any system to programmatically create and prepopulate a reverse loan file within ReverseVision Exchange (RVX). Common system sources include customer relationship management (CRM) systems, point-of-sale solutions, forward loan origination system (LOS) or other third-party software. The loan import API saves LOs from retyping information into multiple systems by automatically importing relevant borrower data fields into RVX at the touch of a button.

* Streamlined product selection within RVX
An update to ReverseVision Administrator (RVA) simplifies the loan program selection menu, improving the loan selection process for LOs.

* Simplified attachments and docs packaging
Available in 2020 ReverseVision users will be able to build a list of documents to be attached to a loan via a single request, significantly reducing the time it takes to attach multiple documents to a loan file.

* Comparison Calculator API
Due to the popularity of RVSA's Comparison Calculators, ReverseVision will release an accompanying API in 2020. The Comparison Calculator API will allow lenders to place ReverseVision's acclaimed Comparison Calculators into their own point-of-sale solution, LOS, CRM, website or mobile app, to provide borrowers and LOs with a visually interactive tool for comparing HECMs and private reverse loans against home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) and traditional first- and second-lien mortgages.

These capabilities are made possible by an all new cloud computing based platform that operates in concert with the classic core RVX origination system. The new architecture enables significantly more flexibility for interaction with other systems and improved scalability while retaining comprehensive reverse origination features. The approach avoids the need for lenders to implement an all new system to exploit a growing set of integrated capabilities. In turn, ReverseVision customers can exploit these new APIs for internal integration and development efforts.

"HECM and private reverse programs have undergone massive transformations and so has our technology," said ReverseVision President and CEO John Button. "ReverseVision's improved capacity for technology coexistence will help all lenders meet borrowers where they are in life and better serve the unique financial needs of senior customers."

ReverseVision's updated visual identity is accompanied by the new tagline, "Rethink. Remortgage. Retire." Additionally, product logos for RVX, ReverseVision Sales Accelerator (RVSA), ReverseVision Database (RVDB), ReverseVision Pro Services (RVPS) and ReverseVision University (RVU) have been refreshed to reflect the rebrand.

FormFree and Freddie Mac Partner to Automate Income and Asset Assessment to Safely Speed Origination Process

ATHENS, Ga. -- Freddie Mac has named FormFree(R) a designated third-party service provider for automated income and asset assessment capabilities. The announcement came as the GSE unveiled new enhancements to Loan Advisor(SM) at the Mortgage Bankers Association's Annual Convention and Expo in Washington, D.C.

Loan Advisor is Freddie Mac's set of integrated software applications designed to take cost out of the origination process and help mortgage lenders acquire relief from certain representations and warranties. By fully automating the assessment of borrower income and assets with data from FormFree and other approved third-party sources, Freddie Mac can offer lenders rep and warranty relief when the data meets its underwriting and eligibility requirements.

Freddie Mac's automated asset and income assessment capabilities are currently available in limited release, and the GSE said it plans to make its asset offering broadly available before the end of the year. FormFree direct deposit income assessment capabilities are expected to debut in early 2019. Both capabilities will be accessed through Loan Product Advisor(R), Freddie Mac's automated underwriting system that is part of Loan Advisor.

"Speeding up the origination process by automating the assessment of borrower assets and income is just one way we are giving our clients the Freddie Edge(SM)," said Samuel E. Oliver III, Freddie Mac Vice President, Major Project Execution, Single-Family Business. "Through our partnership with FormFree, we're helping lenders provide their borrowers with an easier and faster mortgage experience."

"This is a long-anticipated announcement that should excite lenders who are looking to add efficiency and choice to their origination and secondary market workflows," said Brent Chandler, founder and CEO of FormFree. "As the industry's original provider of automated asset and income verification, we are a proud partner in Freddie Mac's efforts to reimagine the mortgage experience and deliver an origination process that is easier and more efficient for lenders and consumers alike."

"This partnership with FormFree and Freddie Mac is another step toward realizing the true digital mortgage," said Parvesh Sahi, senior vice president of business development, Ellie Mae. "By offering asset verification services through our Encompass Lending Platform, we're maximizing efficiency and adding value for our lenders while streamlining the application process for borrowers."

Ellie Mae's Encompass Consumer Connect(tm) is among the more than 100 mortgage technology platforms that currently integrate FormFree's flagship AccountChek asset verification service. FormFree's end-to-end integration with Encompass Consumer Connect gives lenders a fully streamlined mortgage application and automated validation of asset and income through Ellie Mae's partnership with Freddie Mac's Loan Product Advisor.

Secure Insight Creates National eClosing Training Program Using DocMagic’s Total eClose Solution

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Secure Insight, a New Jersey-based data intelligence and vendor management firm, announced today at the MBA's Annual Convention & Expo that it teamed with DocMagic, Inc., the premier provider of fully-compliant loan document preparation, regulatory compliance and comprehensive eMortgage services, to develop and host an online training program to teach attorneys, title agents, notaries and other entities how to accomplish clear, compliant and completely paperless eClosing transactions.

Secure Insight noted that while lenders have made good progress installing digital mortgage point-of-sale solutions, it is just the initial step to implement a true eClosing solution. DocMagic developed Total eClose(TM), a comprehensive solution that enables a 100 percent paperless eClosing process from start to finish using a single-source vendor.

"Getting over the adoption hump starts with ease of use and adequate training so users feel comfortable conducting business within the eMortgage ecosystem," stated Andrew Liput, president of Secure Insight. "We partnered with DocMagic because their Total eClose solution is one of the easiest and most intuitive in the industry, which is conducive to adoption for title agents, attorneys and notaries to understand and leverage."

Secure Insight has an extensive database of more than 70,000 closing professionals that can take advantage of this vital training program, which provides the educational foundation that paves the way for their business practices to include eMortgages and eClosings. Lenders are increasingly seeking well-qualified professionals to work with and this wide-scale training program is poised to significantly move the adoption needle.

Company officials at Secure Insight say their ultimate goal is to become the industry's go-to resource for lenders to access settlement professionals who are well-trained in eClosings, similar to what the Nationwide Multi-state Licensing System & Registry (NMLS) provides for loan officers. Lenders can provide a list of approved title companies and Secure Insight then works to implement a common and consistent process for training on a national level.

Tim Anderson, director of eServices at DocMagic stated: "The new training program and centralized database will provide key information and knowledge for professionals about our industry-leading Total eClose technology and assist lenders in locating professionals who are qualified to leverage it for the benefit of consumers. Further, one of the primary issues it solves is that in a purchase market, lenders really don't choose the settlement professionals and typically don't have direct relationships with them either nor the dedicated resources to continually train them to effectively support full eClosings. The online training eMortgage Education Module helps alleviate this impediment."

The online training is officially set to launch on November 15, 2018 and will be available through a link on Secure Insight's website. To learn more, contact Secure Insight at or (877) 758-7878.

About Secure Insight:

Secure Insight, the brand name of Secure Settlements, Inc., is the first company to offer a standardized risk management process and information database of fully risk-assessed mortgage closing professionals that protects consumers and lenders, reducing fraud and ensuring that federal regulatory requirements are met. Secure Insight monitors tens of thousands of title, settlement and real estate legal firms and professionals nationwide through proprietary technology and the mortgage industry's only National Settlement Agent Database. This database is accessed daily as a fraud prevention tool by state and federal banks, mortgage lenders and credit unions throughout the United States.
