Ignite Leverages Optimal Blue’s API to Improve Loan Originator Experience in Leading LOS

— Advanced APIs and robust pricing allow for various loan scenario comparisons —

Ignite Integrations Solutions, Inc., sister company to matchbox LLC., a leading custom development software company to the mortgage banking industry, has further enhanced their partnership with Optimal Blue, the industry’s predominant provider of secondary marketing automation through the creation of a custom Pricing Scenario Worksheet. Through this unique offering, originators can significantly enhance their customer interaction and experience. The custom-branded form leverages the Optimal Blue API to provide live, accurate product eligibility and pricing that is presented directly into an industry-leading LOS. Comprehensive results provide up to three loan scenarios side by side, which can consist of different products, terms, down payment information, and more.

The integration of robust product eligibility and pricing via Optimal Blue’s Enterprise Secondary Marketing Solution, working in tandem with a highly-advanced API built exclusively for scenario pricing, delivers instantaneous results that satisfy a borrower’s need for immediate selection. Customers of Ignite and Optimal Blue can run various scenarios simultaneously, pulling accurate pricing back into the loan scenario form and ultimately presenting real-time options to their borrowers each and every time.

“We are thrilled to further expand our relationship with Optimal Blue,” said Frank Fiore, Vice President of Ignite Integration Solutions, Inc. “The modern origination workflow requires real-time product eligibility and pricing at any time, from directly within the Loan Origination System. Through this integration, Ignite clients can work more efficiently and provide real-time loan structuring options directly out of the LOS. Side-by-side scenarios, decisioning, and a client-facing document that visualizes all available options work together as an innovative toolset that yields a win-win for originators and borrowers alike!”

This progression is a direct result of the API-first strategy that Optimal Blue is taking to better integrate with the leading technology and service providers used throughout the mortgage industry. “The assembly of our best-in-class API and accurate pricing, paired with the unique user interface that Ignite has pioneered, provides originators with the time-saving advantage to compare multiple options at once,” explained Chazz Huston, Strategic Alliances Manager at Optimal Blue. “Together, we have seamlessly simplified a once time-consuming and tedious process that required substantial effort. I foresee this type of partnership continuing to advance our industry.”
