Optimal Blue & Mortgage Coach Deliver Game-Changing Capabilities to Mortgage Loan Officers

– Product Loan Comparisons Embedded with Real-time, Compliant Pricing Now Available –

Optimal Blue, the leading provider of secondary marketing automation and services in the mortgage industry, is proud to announce a game-changing innovation with Mortgage Coach, creator of comprehensive point-of-sale borrower conversion software. Through direct integration with Optimal Blue’s robust API platform, every Mortgage Coach application now seamlessly connects real-time, compliant product and pricing data with the compelling financial analyses Mortgage Coach is known for. Through this collaborative effort and newly expanded product offering, Mortgage Coach and Optimal Blue enhance their long-standing strategic partnership and take their industry value proposition to a whole new level.

“Without ever leaving the Mortgage Coach app on their mobile device, loan officers can create informative, side-by-side comparisons highlighting multiple loan programs and comprehensive pricing information in just seconds,” explained Bob Brandt, Vice President of Marketing & Strategic Alliances for Optimal Blue. “Combining the sophisticated product and pricing data at the heart of every mortgage transaction with a compelling user experience — and doing so whenever, wherever it matters most — is a game changer for the industry.”

The benefits are not exclusive to lenders and loan officers. Today’s consumers immerse themselves with the details behind major financial decisions and pride themselves on deeply understanding their alternatives. Mortgage financing is no exception. When provided with a comparative, in-depth analysis of the financial impact of their best financing alternatives in a highly consultative environment, consumers are more engaged with their loan officers and more likely to move forward with a loan.

“In today’s price compression marketplace, converting every prospect into a borrower is the most important aspect of achieving increased profits for mortgage lenders,” said Joe Puthur, President of Mortgage Coach. “This new innovation gives lenders the instantaneous benefit of earning more commitments at a lower cost of acquisition.”

Mortgage Coach, the company’s flagship platform, is the technology behind the Total Cost Analysis (TCA), a report that illustrates the long and short-term impact of any loan program on the borrower’s financial situation. The TCA incorporates real time rates, fees, closing costs, and program information and presents its findings using simple yet powerful graphical elements like charts and graphs. The TCA provides a level of clarity that is virtually impossible to achieve without the Mortgage Coach platform.

“The difference between using a TCA to explain mortgage options and using any other method is like the difference between having a film described to you versus watching it in high definition with Dolby sound,” explained Mike Hardwick, President of Churchill Mortgage. “Having been in partnership with Mortgage Coach and Optimal Blue for several years now, we’re happy to have helped thousands of borrowers make a better, more informed decision. These new capabilities will provide greater clarity, transparency, and confidence to any borrower – in a way that is faster for every loan professional.”
