Franklin American Launches New Application System for Borrowers

digitalTennessee-based Franklin American Mortgage has announced a new and improved customer application platform. According to the company, this digital experience makes it easier than ever for homebuyers to submit all required documentation when applying for a loan from their mobile device or desktop computer.

Through this application system, borrowers have the option to submit documentation on their schedules, including on nights and weekends. Recent studies have shown that the streamlined process allows up to 80 percent of borrowers to complete their applications in just one sitting.

As a technology-driven company, we knew there had to be a better way and integrating our tools with Blend’s digital platform simplifies the entire process with transparency,” said Matt Rider, CIO at Franklin American Mortgage. “We take great pride in our commitment to exceptional customer service and this is just the first piece of the digital transformation underway at Franklin American Mortgage.”
