PLEASANTON, Calif. – March 7, 2017Ellie Mae® (NYSE: ELLI), a leading provider of innovative on-demand software solutions and services for the residential mortgage industry, today announced the launch of Ellie Mae’s Encompass Developer Connect. Encompass Developer Connect is the portal into the Encompass Lending Platform, and provides developers with documentation and tools supporting Ellie Mae’s Application Programing Interfaces (APIs) to extend Ellie Mae’s Encompass all-in-one mortgage management solution to add new functions, to easily integrate Encompass with external systems and data, and to build and deploy custom applications in the cloud.

  • Interactive documentation: Find information quickly, without navigating through multiple pages
  • API playground: Test drive Ellie Mae’s APIs and explore new capabilities
  • Developer resources: Quickly gain traction with documentation including user guides and use cases

  • Developer forum: Coming later in 2017 offering one location to share ideas, best practices and use cases

“The launch of Encompass Developer Connect empowers our customers, partners and independent developers in their efforts to innovate for the mortgage industry, grow their own businesses and realize the goal that if you can dream it, you can build it,” said Jonathan Corr, Ellie Mae president and CEO. “The new Encompass Developer Connect portal offers information, documentation and resources to speed this innovation. Lenders and homebuyers will benefit from the simpler and faster experiences driven by these efforts.”

The first APIs to be released to Encompass clients include:

  • Loan Data: Customers and developers can conduct multiple data extracts or system integrations, as well as access loan data from open or closed loans in Encompass. This data can be used with other external systems (e.g. accounting) for reporting or other purposes. Bulk updates of loan files are also possible.
  • Loan View: Leverage search/filtering capabilities for loan files.
  • Loan Events: Allows users to create a subscribe-and-notify/push notification system that leverages webhooks to send alerts for loan events (e.g. “loan file saved”). Customers no longer need to repeatedly poll to see if an action has occurred.
  • Documents: Facilitates the upload/download of loan file attachments in any format.

Encompass Developer Connect is built on Ellie Mae’s Encompass Lending Platform, that provides customers, partners and independent software vendors with a secure, scalable platform, APIs and developer tools to extend and add new functions to Ellie Mae’s Encompass all-in-one mortgage management solution, integrate it with externals systems and data and more rapidly build and deploy custom applications in the cloud.
