By: OptiFunder Corp.
ST. LOUIS - Sept. 13, 2021 - PRLog -- OptiFunder®, the mortgage industry's first Warehouse Management System for mortgage bankers has partnered with ICE Mortgage TechnologyTM, part of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc., a leading global provider of data, technology, and market infrastructure, to make its Warehouse Management System (WMS) available through Encompass®, the industry's leading Loan Origination Software, with built-in ROI.
The seamless API integration helps Encompass users fund loans by providing real-time, optimized warehouse selections on where to fund each loan to achieve the lowest possible cost of warehouse capital and maximum interest spread. By consolidating warehouse management strategy through a single platform, Encompass users reduce financing costs, streamline complex funding workflow, and manage all their most important warehouse relationships from a single platform.
Until now, the process of managing multiple warehouse lines with complex terms against a moving pipeline has been incredibly complex, disconnected, and labor intensive.
OptiFunder's WMS is built from the mortgage lenders' perspective with a fully configurable rules engine supporting over 50 warehouse lenders. The easy-to-deploy platform uses AI and machine learning to analyze and factor complex terms and cycle timelines to select the best warehouse line and automates funding activity, wire confirmations, balance reconciliation, collateral tracking, shipping and paydown activities with Purchase Advice Reconciliation direct from the agencies and key investors.
Key features include:
"Our partnership with ICE Mortgage Technology enhances the digital mortgage experience for the back office and gives Encompass customers a technology solution that bridges the primary and secondary markets to maximize efficiency and lower net origination costs," said OptiFunder Chief Operating Officer Brian Abbott. "Our secure, seamless integration with Encompass enables our joint customers to efficiently fund mortgage loans and enhance relationships with their warehouse partners. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with ICE Mortgage Technology."
