All the News You Need to Know: Ellie Mae’s Announcements at MBA Annual
When Ellie Mae was acquired earlier this year, many people assumed progress might slow on our mission to provide the true digital mortgage. But as we kick off MBA Annual with lots of exciting news, these assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth.
We have a laser-focus on driving toward our mission through a strategy of building, buying, and partnering. If you take a look at the news coming out of MBA Annual, we’ve stayed true to this promise—to drive down costs, increase efficiencies, and help customers and prospects get the most out of the Encompass® Digital Lending Platform.
Here’s an overview of some of the news from this week:
Lender Insights Survey: Technology driving change
Technology has changed nearly every aspect of the mortgage industry, from how lenders generate leads to how borrowers complete an application. The new 2019 Ellie Mae Lender Insights Survey has uncovered important insights about how online and mobile tools have reshaped the overall homebuying experience, as well as lenders’ and buyers’ expectations of each other. For instance, nearly half of lenders (49%) offer borrowers a mobile app experience – and among those that do, more than half (54%) saw their loan volume increase by 5% or more. Learn more.
