When comes to choosing a mortgage loan origination software, a question that should be asked in regard to your shortlist LOS options is what vendor integrations it has. The supported vendor integrations can determine how streamlined the back-end processes are. Ideally, a LOS vendor supports integration from all of your existing vendors with minimum manual data import/export involved. Some of the most popular and customizable LOS vendor integrations include:
Data Verification and Access
MeridianLink is a great example of a vendor integration designed to make customer data verification happen swiftly and allow progression to the next phase of the online mortgage loan application. You can pull credit bureau data from Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion within seconds, and a sophisticated algorithm balances variations in reports to create a single, highly accurate credit report. This vendor integration can also allow you to connect to dozens of credit resellers and service providers who verify employment, assets, deposits, tax transcripts, criminal records, and more.
Income and Asset Verification
The Work Number powered by Equifax delivers automated income verifications with real-time salary information. It is a completely paperless process that can be utilized to significantly reduce costs and turnaround time by eliminating traditional lag time and errors associated with "wet signature" processes. Lenders can use the result in Day 1 Certainty applications to further streamline underwriting improving the overall experience for their borrowers and closing loans more quickly.
FormFree performs asset verifications.
Title and Settlement Solutions
Solidify Inc. and First American Title deliver fee quotes and settlement services across the country. It is a seamless process from start to finish, with a CFPB compliant state-of-the-art system that allows increased automation and productivity for all title and closing files.

ComplianceEase provides the capability for real-time audits for regulatory compliance violations. ComplianceAnalyzer is the mortgage industry's most adopted automated compliance solution with the most comprehensive TRID auditing for both first mortgages and home equity loans and lines.

Automated Underwriting Systems
