With this first release of 2018, we will begin identifying our system update releases by number rather than by the date of the release. This and future releases will be identified by year and the release order number for that year.
In this release, we will be forcing a Release to Production in all customers’ sites. Please make sure any changes you have made in the Configuration site have been thoroughly tested and are ready to publish into the Lender site.
We are pleased to announce new enhancements included in this release to support our enhanced loan amount calculations, APIs, Quick Quote, Secondary Services, and our new Enterprise Analytics business intelligence and data visualization tool. This release will occur on January 27th, 2018.
Optimal Blue is also excited to announce the commercial availability of Secondary Service’s Note Rate Hedging functionality. Appropriate for credit unions and community banks, this new feature allows you to use forward commitments with Fannie and Freddie to cover your hedge and mitigate risk in case of market movement.
This document provides information about these solutions and describes the other enhancements and resolved issues included in the 2018.01 release of the family of Optimal Blue products. If you have questions about any of the updates in this release, please contact your Optimal Blue Account Manager.
