Kofax® Limited (NASDAQ: KFX) (LSE: KFX), a leading provider of smart
process applications for the business critical First Mile™ of customer
interactions, today introduced Kofax Mortgage Agility™, a solution
designed to radically transform and simplify the mortgage application
Mortgage Agility streamlines the critical initial steps in the mortgage
lending process by enabling applicants to use any channel, including
mobile devices, internet portals, email, fax and paper, to submit
mortgage application information. The solution then extracts the
business critical content, uses business rules to check for missing or
inconsistent information and enables collaborative communications
between the applicant and lender to capture trailing documents and
resolve exceptions. It then leverages defined workflows, business rules,
compliance requirements and due dates to assemble a complete mortgage
application package for entry into loan origination systems, including
Ellie Mae Encompass 360. It can also connect to third party software
applications or web sites to, for example, verify applicant information,
order credit or appraisal reports and other purposes. All of this is
accomplished while keeping the applicant informed about the status of
their application and providing lender management visibility into the
loan process and loan officer performance via near real time interactive
Mortgage Agility combines a robust set of multichannel capture, business
process management, mobile, analytics and data integration capabilities
on a single platform to provide a less frustrating and more convenient
customer experience for applicants, and helps lenders close more quality
loans faster and at a lower cost.
Waterstone Mortgage Corporation, a Milwaukee based lender that
originated more than $1.8 billion in loans during 2013, is an early
adopter of Mortgage Agility. As a member of Kofax’s new Lighthouse
Account Program, industry leaders like Waterstone help shape the
requirements of new smart process applications such as Mortgage Agility.
Eric Egenhoefer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Waterstone
Mortgage, commented, “Kofax’s solutions are extremely intelligent and
will be instrumental in delivering a new wave of business-critical
information to the all-important First Mile of decision making. Until
now, this technology didn’t exist for lenders. It’s a game changer for
our business, because it will enable us to engage better with our
borrowers, increase operational efficiencies, save time, boost
productivity, minimize costs and identify opportunities for improvements
and increased revenues.”
“Lenders are examining all phases of their mortgage loan process to
better serve customers, gain efficiencies, improve quality and comply
with new regulations,” said Grant Johnson, Chief Marketing Officer at
Kofax. “By getting the application data right in the First Mile of the
process, there is a bigger payoff for both the borrower and the lender.”

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
