Optimal Blue Launches Next Wave of API Solutions
— APIs built exclusively for scenario pricing, pipeline and lock management, expanded LOS integration —
Optimal Blue, leading provider of secondary marketing automation and services in the mortgage industry, recently launched the second phase of the company’s highly-advanced, best-in-class Application Programming Interface (API). The company’s API solution now includes a host of new client and vendor capabilities, including scenario pricing and locking, as well as functionality and enhancements built directly into one of the industry’s most widely-used LOS platforms.
This expanded suite of API offerings will provide full listing search results, best execution search results and unprecedented pipeline and lock management. Users can not only create, update, and retrieve loans, but they can also seamlessly retrieve, filter, and sort pipelines. Additionally, the ability to register loans, request locks, and automatically accept locks is built into the API.
This expansion of the API’s lock automation also powers mobile applications, loan officer portals, broker portals, and consumer portals.
“We take pride in providing originators with the ability to price using the industry’s premier product eligibility and pricing engine,” said Scott Happ, CEO of Optimal Blue. “Now, originators can lock their loans just as easily and faster than ever before. For existing clients, this will allow further integration of the API into their loan application process, resulting in a streamlined and simplified workflow.”
“After experiencing the success that our customers and third-party providers had with our first suite of API offerings, we were eager to release the next set into production,” said Erin Wester, Senior Product Manager at Optimal Blue. “Now, the possibilities of our APIs reach far beyond scenario pricing. We are providing opportunities for our customers to engage their customers and their internal users in whatever solution or UI/UX they desire – all the way through the initial lock of a loan.”
