Three lenders implement Mortgage Builder’s architect LOS in under 90 Days

SOUTHFIELD, MI (March 18, 2014) — Mortgage Builder Software, the Southfield, Michigan-based provider of award-winning mortgage loan origination and servicing software systems (LOS and LSS), has set new company records recently by successfully implementing three new clients in under 90 days.  Two of the three went live with Mortgage Builder’s Architect LOS platform in less than 60 days, thanks to the platform’s design and Mortgage Builder’s implementation team.  With many LOS conversions taking up to six months and longer to complete, this is a significant achievement that can save lenders implementation time and expense, while improving their systems to boost compliance and reduce per-loan costs.

“Different lenders have differing requirements, and we have been doing this long enough to thoroughly understand how clients of all sizes work,” says Keven Smith, Mortgage Builder’s president and CEO.  “We’re celebrating our 15th anniversary in 2014, so it seems appropriate we are also demonstrating our expertise at helping clients upgrade their lending systems in the shortest possible time during this landmark year,” he noted.

The three lenders for whom Mortgage Builder achieved these rapid deployments include:

  • Darien Rowayton Bank, of Darien, Connecticut – 52 days
  • AmericanWest Bank, Spokane, Washington – 82 days
  • Landmark Professional Mortgage Company, Salem, Oregon – 52 days

The clock started ticking at contract signing, and the Mortgage Builder implementation team was challenged to ensure that every obstacle was removed and each potential technical problem was addressed in order to meet or exceed the clients’ expectations.  “One of the things working in our favor was an accelerated training schedule,” observes Mortgage Builder Corporate Vice President Kelli Himebaugh.  “Our Architect LOS is very intuitive and that results in reduced time required for users to become adept at the system.  Lenders understandably want to be confident that their process and QM compliance situations are in order and ready to use as swiftly as possible,” she adds.

“The Mortgage Builder support throughout our implementation has been great,” says Charles Weathers, vice president of Landmark Professional Mortgage Company.  “We are pleased to be on our new LOS, Architect.”

Mortgage Builder is exhibiting at MBA’s National Technology in Mortgage Banking Conference & Expo from March 18-21 at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles in space 602.  The company will have experts on hand to discuss implementations, CFPB compliance and other LOS and LSS topics, along with demos of the Architect LOS, the Colonnade LSS and the LoanXEngine pricing and CRM systems.
