MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA – October 5, 2011 – Akcelerant, a provider of connected software technology to the financial services industry, announced today new integration between SOLUTION.LENDING, Akcelerant’s loan origination system powered by the Akcelerant Framework, and SWBC’s Unity® application. The new “connector” allows Akcelerant customers to quickly and accurately support cross sell opportunities during the loan generation process for Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP), Extended Warranties (MBI & VSC), Credit Insurance and Debt Cancellation.

The Unity application is seamlessly integrated to SOLUTION.LENDING through the addition of a new workflow step that allows loan protection products to be presented and sold to each new loan applicant. This eliminates the need for multiple software programs and decreases the risk of human error associated with double data entry. Loan officers can also easily generate any Unity-related insurance documents and print them, along with all other loan materials, at the end of the loan cycle.

“This integration further emphasizes and expands the commitment that SWBC places in our Akcelerant partnership,” elaborates Brad Young, Chief Operating Officer of SWBC’s AutoPilot® Division. “Considerable effort was put forth by both organizations to ensure the functionality that the Unity solution contributes as an integrated workflow step within SOLUTION.LENDING improves efficiencies and maximizes cross-selling opportunities.”

“SOLUTION.LENDING’s ability to integrate with industry-leading providers is a major product differentiator,” states Larry Edgar-Smith, senior vice president, product management at Akcelerant. “Our goal with any new connector is to provide customers with an opportunity for increased efficiency and ROI, and we believe SWBC’s Unity integration meets this objective. This is SWBC’s fifth Akcelerant connector, and we look forward to continually working with them on additional connectivity in the future.”
