Partnerships: A key to delivering a true digital mortgage
By: Parvesh Sahi, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Ellie Mae
Navigating fast-changing trends in the mortgage industry has always been a challenge. But, in today’s unpredictable landscape, being able to quickly adapt to market fluctuations has never been more important… or more difficult. But there is good news! The Ellie Mae Digital Lending Platform has a robust, flexible and innovative Partner Ecosystem built on top of our API platform to help lenders realize a true digital mortgage experience for their customers.
While on our journey towards our North Star of automating everything that can be automated throughout the mortgage process, we’ve established the largest partner network in the industry to help drive innovation forward for our lender customers. Our powerful partner integrations include best-of-breed technologies from cutting-edge solution providers, industry service providers, key investors and trusted consultants.
Through open APIs, lenders can quickly extend the Platform as needed, plug in their preferred partner solutions, and leverage the latest innovations within their workflow seamlessly. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our customers have been able to quickly work with key partners to deliver technologies that decrease in-person and/or manual interactions, as well as assist with recent capacity and virtual mortgage manufacturing needs. From eClosing and remote online notarization to alternative appraisal and electronic verifications solutions, we were able to, with our partners, enable our lenders to close loans efficiently despite the environmental challenges.
Our Ellie Mae community isn’t just a great resource for lenders. It also offers valuable opportunities for our partners. By being a part of our Partner Network, participating companies can differentiate themselves from the competition and increase awareness of their solution among Ellie Mae customers. Many of our partners are able to leverage a single, scalable integration into a massive distribution channel by marketing their services to our customers. Plus, they get to control the capabilities of their integration and put their technology teams to work to offer a great service on Encompass. Interested in joining the Ellie Mae Partner Network?
