OKLAHOMA CITY, May 15 - Flagstar Bank, a proven leader in paperless mortgage processing, and a la mode, developer of mission critical desktop, mobile and Web tools for mortgage originators, announced the completion of a custom software plug-in to a la mode's SureDocs system, which will streamline document delivery for Flagstar brokers who use the application.
Brokers and other originators doing business with Flagstar Bank can now obtain secure e-signed mortgage documents effortlessly and efficiently with a la mode's class-leading SureDocs system. The plug-in delivers the SureDocs e-documents to the bank through Flagstar's backend processes over a secure SSL (Secure Socket Layer) connection.
Being able to send SureDocs e-mortgage paperwork directly through Flagstar's Digital Document Transfer network saves the broker time and money by eliminating manual steps by making courier fees and delivery time lag things of the past. Borrowers can be locked down more quickly and brokers can deliver more prompt, professional customer service. Once a document has been delivered through the Flagstar plug-in, a broker can also log in to check its processing status at any time. For its part, Flagstar receives fully ESIGN and UETA compliant documents securely and privately, complying with Gramm-Leach-Bliley requirements.
"Flagstar Bank is a demonstrated digital mortgage document pioneer," said Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Charles Kirkpatrick of Flagstar Bank. "Working with a la mode to allow our brokers to deliver SureDocs documents and disclosures through this secure integrated connection is another innovative step in the evolution both of Flagstar Bank and the mortgage industry toward true e-mortgage capability."
"Brokers see SureDocs as the industry's most robust, reliable, and hassle free e-document creator and e-signature application," commented Brad Eaton, Vice President of Mortgage Products with a la mode. "And since there are no per-use or per-loan fees, and the system is so easy to use, the adoption rate at street level is fantastic. Brokers and originators don't have to worry about implementation headaches, and instead get to focus on lowering costs and delivering superior service to borrowers."
