FirstClose Launches New Platform for Title Businesses

Austin-based fintech company, FirstClose [1] has announced the release of its SMART Select platform for Title Search Reports and O&E Reports.

SMART Select uses intelligence logic to automatically select the title vendor with the best service, best price, and best turn-time for each financial institution’s unique lending footprint. This new technology chooses from six approved and vetted national title vendors to deliver title search reports.

Giving an overview of the need for this technology for lenders, FirstClose said that in today’s ever-changing mortgage market, lenders are faced with rising cost to originate loans, which is impacting their bottom line. This is especially true when trying to handle vendor due diligence and select the right title vendor for your business. Many factors need to be taken into consideration, such as service levels, pricing, and turn times. FirstClose's SMART Select instantly eliminates lenders’ title vendor selection headaches.

“Think of SMART Select like cellular coverage,” said Corey Smith, Chief Product Officer at FirstClose. “Why choose only one provider when you can have the top six cell phone providers all under one plan? You’d have the best possible coverage everywhere you go. That’s the essence of SMART Select, it delivers the best coverage, pricing, and turn-time for each customer.”

SMART Select can be enabled as a single product or as a cascade from the FirstClose Instant Property Report when coverage is limited:
