ELLIE MAE LAUNCHES NEW CONSUMER DIRECT SOLUTION FOR LENDERS
Encompass Consumer Direct Provides Self-Service, 24/7 Online Access
Ellie Mae® (NYSE:ELLI), a leading provider of innovative
on-demand software solutions and services for the residential mortgage
industry, today announced a new Consumer Direct solution for its
Encompass® mortgage management solution.
Encompass Consumer Direct™ is a new self-service and lead-generation
solution for lenders looking to enhance service and efficiency while
catering to tech-savvy borrowers. Borrowers can access this highly
secure web-based solution 24/7 to:
Research loan products and rates.
Apply for a loan through a guided, user-friendly interactive
Order and pay for credit reports.
Shop for loan programs and compare products and rates side-by-side.
Receive disclosures and online status updates about their loan from
Upload and electronically sign documents.
Encompass Consumer Direct takes the daunting task of applying for a
mortgage and turns it into a guided step-by-step process that can take
less than 15 minutes to complete. It also gives the borrower greater
control and insight throughout the loan lifecycle.
Lenders can easily add their specific products using Encompass Product
and Pricing Service™ and configure Encompass Consumer Direct to fit
their business models. For instance, retail originators can forward
completed loan applications to loan officers for follow-up and maintain
the personal touch and one-on-one relationship with the consumer.
Lenders can also incorporate their own branding to their consumer direct
site and configure various modules to help consumers shop for and
calculate loan costs, get more information about the lender, ask for
assistance and finally apply for a loan.
The entire consumer experience is friendly, professional and
interactive. Borrowers can access the site from their PCs and tablets
and be guided step-by-step through the loan application process. If at
any point they abandon the process, the system captures where they have
been on the site, what products they considered and how far they
progressed with the application.
Encompass Consumer Direct seamlessly ensures compliance. Encompass
Consumer Direct correctly presents product, fee and pricing details,
along with the appropriate disclosures. The single system of record
eliminates multiple databases and keeps data consistent, compliant and
easily accessible in the event of an audit. Encompass Consumer Direct
provides a secure online experience: application data is protected by
state-of-the-art encryption technology; all data is stored in Ellie
Mae’s highly secure SSAE-16 and SOC2 certified data centers and no data
is stored on any device.
“We see huge potential with Encompass Consumer Direct, especially in
meeting the demands of our next generation of homebuyers – Millennials,”
said Jeanie Nivison, chief operating officer of VanDyk Mortgage. “A
great example is my own son, who does all of his research for financial
products online. This is where VanDyk is headed and Encompass Consumer
Direct can help us get there.”
“A growing segment of today’s borrowers are digital natives who are used
to using technology to research products and handle complicated tasks,
like filing taxes and making online purchase decisions,” said Jonathan
Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “Encompass
Consumer Direct will give these borrowers the same self-service,
time-shifting experience that they have become accustomed to. At the
same time, it will help lenders expand their channel offerings, generate
leads and convert and close more loans.”
Encompass Consumer Direct is available now. For more information about

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

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 ...
