FirstClose, a Texas-based provider of technology solutions for mortgage lenders nationwide, announced that its reporting suite is now available through Ellie Mae’sEncompass® digital mortgage solution. The seamless integration will allow lenders to order FirstClose’s solutions directly through Encompass to drive quality and efficiency in the loan origination process.
Services can be ordered directly from Encompass at the touch of a button, eliminating duplicate keystrokes when placing orders. When orders are returned, data points are sent back to Encompass, which automatically populates critical fields such as the full legal description and vesting information from the title work, the appraised value from the valuation product selected, and more. Copies of the completed reports are automatically imaged into Encompass. The integration reduces human error, as well as costs and closing times.
