OpenClose and MCT Streamline the Loan Sale and Purchase Advice Process for Secondary Marketing Departments
Mutual lender clients can utilize new functionality to extract, pass and populate loan-level data into OpenClose’s LOS, saving huge amounts of time
NEW YORK, May 16, 2016 – MBA National Secondary Market Conference & Expo– OpenClose® an enterprise-class, multi-channel loan origination system (LOS) provider, announced that in conjunction with Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®) it has developed a solution that normalizes and extracts a lender’s committed loan sale and purchase advice data to be uploaded directly into OpenClose’s LenderAssist™ LOS, thus eliminating significant manual intervention. Depending on the number of loans that have been executed, time savings can be reduced from days to minutes.
“We use MCT as our secondary marketing advisory firm and OpenClose as our LOS provider. The solution they jointly developed empowers us with an invaluable tool to slash the amount of time it used to take us to rekey committed loan data and purchase advice information from Fannie Mae,” stated Dan Beam, senior vice president of capital markets at Firstrust Bank. “Given the number of trades we are doing in a particular week, the automation of this process can easily shave off what previously required dozens of man hours down to just minutes.”
The solution works by MCT converting large committed loan sale reports or purchase advices into normalized datasets, which is then automatically transmitted to the lender for easy upload into OpenClose’s LenderAssist™ LOS. All of this transpires with the simple click of a button.
“We want to do whatever we can to make our customers’ jobs as easy as possible and this new capability delivers a tremendous uptick in efficiency, saving secondary marketing departments inordinate amounts of time which in turn reduces costs,” says JP Kelly, president of OpenClose. “Whether our mutual customers upload a few dozen loans at once or hundreds of loans, it takes a fraction of the time it used to.”
“MCT is committed to providing innovative solutions with our technology partners that enable work efficiencies and cost savings for our mutual clients. This interface delivers on that promise,” says Chris Anderson, chief administration officer at MCT.
