Customer Demand Leads to Initial Interface With Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' ARTA Lending System
BELLEVUE, Wash., May 10 // -- Netupdate, Inc. has added consumer lending functionality to Originator Pro, the company's Web-based online point of sale technology for the mortgage lending industry. The company has already created its first interface from the application to the ARTA(R) Lending Documentation System, a solution built upon the more than 50 years of experience and knowledge behind Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' Bankers Systems product line.
The addition of consumer loan functionality to Netupdate's Originator Pro solution allows lenders to provide a safe and secure online application for consumer loans with collateral such as new and used automobiles, recreational vehicles, boats and motorcycles, as well as unsecured loans.
Once a consumer loan application is received by a lender, the data within can easily be printed or exported to Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' ARTA Lending system through the new interface.
Netupdate and Wolters Kluwer Financial Services previously announced a mutual referral agreement and interface between Originator Pro's mortgage functionality and the ARTA Lending system in May 2006.
"The new technology enables both companies to offer additional functionality to their customers," said Diane Holmstrom, chief executive officer of Netupdate. "We are delighted to respond to the many customer requests by adding the online consumer application. This new tool for generating additional loan business via the internet will support decreased costs and increased business for our customers. The first interface being rolled out is for ARTA Lending with Wolters Kluwer Financial Systems, our valued business partner."
"The expansion of our partnership with Netupdate will allow Wolters Kluwer Financial Services to provide financial organizations with even more flexibility in the way they choose to do business with their customers and demonstrates our continued commitment to our ARTA Lending platform," said John Bryant, executive vice president of Banking for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services.
Firstbank Corporation of Alma, Mich., an existing Netupdate and Wolters Kluwer Financial Services customer, plans to take advantage of the new consumer lending functionality and interface.
"The ability to have the customer input the consumer loan application into Originator Pro, have it flow directly to ARTA Lending and subsequently to our core system with little additional data entry is a huge efficiency factor," said Pam Trask, Loan Operations manager for Firstbank Corporation.
