Florida-based Black Knight, Inc. and Docutech have created a strategic alliance to bundle Docutech’s advanced ConformX document generation engine as part of Black Knight’s comprehensive Origination Suite of solutions. Including ConformX in the Black Knight Empower Now! loan origination system (LOS) implementation process not only further optimizes the loan process for customers and providers, but helps lenders eliminate the time and resources needed to search for and contract with a separate loan document provider.
“Docutech is dedicated to providing lenders with solutions that enable them to manage their document needs more efficiently while maintaining the highest level of compliance tools and offering their customers a more modernized loan experience,” said Amy Brandt, President and CEO of Docutech. “We are proud to work with BlackKnight to include ConformX with an Empower Now! implementation for faster, more efficient data integration and document exchange to enhance a seamless, secure onboarding process.”
By integrating ConformX with Empower Now! implementations, lenders can now generate dynamic loan documents, auto-populated from data stored in Empower. Using rules-based intelligence and pre-configured automation capabilities, data is imported and systematically populated on the required documents generated by the lender to streamline onboarding.
