Kroll Factual Data addition to Ellie Mae's Encompass360 to help lenders comply with Fannie Mae Loan Quality Initiative
LOVELAND, Colo. --(Business Wire)--
Kroll Factual Data, Inc. ("Kroll Factual Data"), a leading provider of
independent verification services to mortgage lenders, banks, credit
unions and property management firms, and Ellie Mae, Inc., a leading
provider of enterprise-level, on-demand automated solutions for the
residential mortgage industry, announced today the addition of several
Kroll Factual Data product integrations into Encompass360®,
Ellie Mae's end-to-end residential mortgage management software
solution. Kroll Factual Data's Loan
Review Report (LRR), a product specifically designed to help clients
comply with Fannie
Mae's Loan Quality Initiative (LQI), became available February 7.
Future Kroll Factual Data releases, all planned for the first half of
2013, will include Third Party Verifications and Risk Mitigation
services. Kroll Factual Data Bureau Express Credit Reports and Flood
Determination Reports are already integrated with Encompass360.
A primary focus of Fannie Mae's LQI is to stem the influx of repurchase
demands by capturing critical loan data earlier in the lending process
and validating it before, during and immediately after loan delivery.
Kroll Factual Data's Loan Review Report is designed to simplify the
process of identifying undisclosed liabilities, helping lenders comply
with the guidelines established in the LQI and mitigate the risk of
buy-back requests. As an independent verification tool, Loan Review
Report is an efficient and cost-effective solution that includes a
credit report, updated tradeline balances and a Mortgage Electronic
Registration System (MERS) search.
"Wha is important to Kroll Factual Data is providing valuable solutions
to the industries we support. Partnering with Ellie Mae and integrating
our services like the Loan Review Report within Encompass360 will be
very beneficial to our mutual customers, and we are very proud of this
partnership," said Damon Littlejohn, Director Channels and Alliances at
Kroll Factual Data. "With the heightened
scrutiny from investors on the completeness and accuracy of
information underlying loan decisions, having Loan Review Report
available within Encompass360 is especially timely for lenders concerned
with mitigating this risk."
Focused on the residential mortgage industry, Ellie Mae is a leading
provider of enterprise-level, on-demand automated solutions. "Kroll
Factual Data's customer-centric approach fits nicely with our commitment
to delivering the best technology and services to automate and
streamline the mortgage lending process," said Richard Roof, senior vice
president of business development at Ellie Mae. "Integrating additional
Kroll Factual Data loan quality solutions to Encompass360 will be a
great benefit to the more than 73,000 mortgage professionals at the
thousands of banks, mortgage companies and credit unions that utilize
