OpenClose Integration with Access Business Technologies Provides Faster Exchange of Loan Data Between LOS and Third-Party Systems

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- OpenClose®, the industry-leading mortgage fintech provider and omni-channel loan origination system (LOS), announced that it integrated with Access Business Technologies' (ABT) MortgageExchange interface solution, a secure cloud-based environment that enables multiple platforms and applications to share data between disparate systems. Now, OpenClose and ABT are able to conduct business with more lending entities.

ABT's MortgageExchange extracts mortgage loan data fields and properly places all information into the connecting fields within other applications (using respective APIs when available). Each integration is customized between OpenClose and ABT to model the customer's business workflow, which eliminates data input redundancy, prevents errors, and saves time.

"Teaming with ABT allows our mutual customers to instantly access and share accurate data with different software systems both inside and outside of the mortgage industry," says Vince Furey, CRO at OpenClose. "ABT's MortgageExchange enables two-way data flow where relevant information is passed from our LenderAssist LOS to the target platform and from the target platform back to the LOS. This ability provides time savings and increased accuracy by populating client information directly from a system of record. This new integration further supports the fact that OpenClose is the best way to lend from open to close."

Organizations leveraging ABT's MortgageExchange solution do not require additional servers, software, coding, or maintenance. ABT builds fully functional interfaces using custom-configurations that follow the clients' business processes. Engagements for MortgageExchange are completed, tested, and in production within 90 days. OpenClose's RESTful API Suite enabled ABT to efficiently connect to its LenderAssist™ LOS and facilitate the secure transfer of data between advanced workflows that lenders leverage daily. As a result, it is simple for customers using ABT's MortgageExchange to connect to the OpenClose LOS and virtually any other software platform using contemporary APIs.

"Partnering with OpenClose unlocks a lot of doors for lending entities that use the MortgageExchange interface," said Justin Kirsch CEO. "At ABT, everything we design and build lives in the cloud and our teams manage all maintenance and upkeep, freeing lenders from concern or worry about any added cost and time required to maintain applications and the connecting interfaces. We firmly believe that time is money, and our clients invest the time saved building a more profitable operation."

Lenders using the OpenClose and ABT integration receive a report from MortgageExchange that provides full transparency showing what transpired with the data, identifying any issues with the loan data before it is sent to the target software platform, ensuring data accuracy.

New Book Explores Unique World of Intrapreneurs and Their Role in Business Growth

BOSTON, Mass. -- Author and intrapreneurship expert Susan Foley, Managing Partner of Corporate Entrepreneurs LLC, is excited to announce the release of the paperback version of her latest book, "Intrapreneurs: Who, What, How and Why" (ISBN: 978-1734956900).

The new book explores the role of an intrapreneur within businesses, from how they drive innovation and serve as a catalyst for positive change, to how their unique mindset and competencies distinguish them as unconventional assets capable of propelling exceptional business growth.

"Intrapreneurs: Who, What, How and Why" offers perspective on what an intrapreneur is, the significant impact they have on an organization and how they are serving as agents of change by rewriting the rules of business. Throughout 241 pages, Foley defines intrapreneurship and chronicles the journeys of intrapreneurs across the globe, helping readers understand their individual paths to success and lessons learned along the way.

"This book examines the incredible value of having an intrapreneur on the leadership team of any business, and the extraordinary combination of qualities they possess that distinguish them from their peers," said Foley. "Intrapreneurs are leading their organizations into the future with their incredible foresight, critical thinking skills and propensity to take action versus waiting for change to happen."

As Foley explains in her book with research and real examples, intrapreneurs are quickly becoming the new face of leadership in the changing world of business. As an integral member of the internal team, they create new processes that build value through new business ventures, new product launches, new services and more. They thrive on problem solving, consistently leverage technology and address business challenges head-on - seeing every situation as an opportunity to learn and prosper.

Their self-awareness, resiliency and high level of productivity help them see business functions through a different lens, resulting in action and measurable results.

"These individuals are the hidden talent in most organizations, building and refining their skillset over time through experience," Foley said. "This person must be discovered, their talents cultivated, and their skills applied across all business functions. They can - quite literally - turn the impossible into the possible because they're not afraid to try anything. They're more afraid to not try."

"Intrapreneurs: Who, What, How and Why" takes a candid, real world look at intrapreneurship, including the force behind it, nuances, profiles, success factors, aspirations, challenges, value, leadership and the future of the role in business. It's a must-read roadmap for every business leader, helping them understand why this role is important and how to identify their own intrapreneurs for the sake of successfully driving innovation and growth.

"Intrapreneurs: Who, What, How and Why" is the third book by Foley, who has also authored "Acceleration: Changing the Speed of Growth" and "Entrepreneurs Inside."

She is Managing Partner of Corporate Entrepreneurs LLC, a professional services firm that assists businesses with building intrapreneurship as a strategy for new business growth. She is a champion for research on intrapreneurs, helping countless organizations identify their internal intrapreneurs and understand how they are distinguishable from other employees. Her breakthrough research - based largely on direct observation of intrapreneurs around the world - has helped business leaders globally understand the critical need for this role and experience their remarkable contributions.

In addition to being an expert in the field, Foley is an international speaker and taught Corporate Entrepreneurship at Babson College, Executive Education and Social Change at Suffolk University.

The e-book version of "Intrapreneurs: Who, What, How and Why" was released on June 21, 2020, and the new paperback version is now available on Amazon for $19.99.

A comprehensive summary of the book is available online at - where visitors will also find additional resources focused on business growth and success.

Elite Miss Pennsylvania Partners with 20+ East Coast Hotels – Projected to Prevent More Than 1 Ton of Plastic Waste from Landfills

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Danielle Alura, Elite Miss Pennsylvania, received the 2020 Olive Branch Certificate of Recognition from the Coalition for Peace Action for her efforts against climate change, to build a green economy. One of the achievements this year was Danielle held a socially distanced green talk outside Philly for hotel owners.

The hotel association she met with as her first step of influence was AAHOA, the Asian American Hotel Owners Association, the majority being immigrant owned. The attendees interested in her green program represented more than 140+ east coast hotels. She has already been able to convince more than 20 hotels so far to pledge against their plastic waste!

By choosing to adopt at least one of her suggested plastic prevention initiatives into their business operations, this will successfully prevent over 1 ton of waste from our communities' landfills by 2021. She is still meeting with more hotels and franchises as they voice interest in her free green program to reduce plastic waste and save money while going green. A new hotel franchise with more than 100 hotels is on board to implement her "No Excuse for Single Use" Program across their whole franchise.

Danielle is the current Elite Miss Pennsylvania, a member of the United Nations of Greater Philadelphia, a member of their event committee, a member of the Coalition for Peace Action and a supporter of Family Promise, a non-profit helping the homeless. She has sat on their Executive Board as the Secretary, Chair of the event committee and Vice President of Family Promise of Orange County (FPOC). Danielle has helped raise more than $400,000 for charity in the past few years, of which $82,000 was raised virtually over the course of 24hrs for FPOC in the middle of this pandemic for the families.

Danielle admired how green conscious her mother was when growing up. Being the oldest of 4 adopted kids, she remembers, wearing hand-me-downs, recycling and repurposing things they simply couldn't throw away.

"I still remember leaving swim team practice and dropping the empty glass bottles into the recycling bins and hearing them break, or pulling over and watering neighbor's thirsty plants on their porch with our water bottles as we drove by."

After traveling to 9 countries last summer, from the Galapagos Islands, to China - she came across trash everywhere. Upon returning to the states, she searched for ways to create awareness and discovered there was a pageant system designed for such green leaders. Her platform: No Excuse for Single Use (NEFSU).

"First, I encouraged people to begin a zero waste home during the pandemic by taking simple green steps. I post a new sustainable video tip weekly to help you add new green habits to your lifestyle. However, going 'green' to impact climate change does not strictly rely on us as individuals. We need corporations to contribute their efforts for climate change. Otherwise - as individuals alone - we won't even make a dent in pollution. Therefore, the other side of my platform focuses on business. I have partnered with hotels as well to pledge against plastic waste."

Danielle has also lobbied alongside PennEnvironment, United Nations Greater Philadelphia and the CFPA against single use plastics in front of many elected officials. They also talked about the horrors of landfill pollutants into our water, air and food and the importance of increasing Electric Vehicle infrastructure. Danielle's platform "No Excuse for Single Use" will now be utilized by Rep. Ronni Green as a Zero Waste Home resource for the community.

Danielle Alura has recently written a number of original songs - all to the tune of climate change. Her whole life she has written original music but kept it only for her family to enjoy. Now, she will be releasing the first song ever entitled "Can You Hear Me." The original work also features a number of familiar celebrity faces endorsing her efforts for plastic reduction.

Write your elected officials, write your favorite brands on how it's important to go green and remember - there's "no excuse for single use." Danielle is competing for Elite Miss Earth USA in January.
