Avista Solutions Announces Seamless Integration to Mortgage Insurance from Genworth Financial

Customers of Avista Solutions now have access to Genworth Mortgage Insurance through a direct integration to Avista’s loan origination system.

Charleston, SC, September 22, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Avista Solutions, an award-winning provider of a web-based, end-to-end mortgage loan origination system, is pleased to announce that mortgage insurance (MI) from leading global financial security company Genworth Financial is now available to its customers through a direct system integration.

The two companies began cultivating a partnership when their mutual mortgage lender customers expressed a strong interest in the ability to order MI from Genworth without exiting their Avista Agile LOS. As a result of the integration, Avista customers can now select MI from Genworth during the loan origination process and can expect an MI commitment from Genworth within 60 seconds.

“Meeting the needs of our customers is a priority at Avista, and a seamless integration to MI from Genworth was a recent request that we felt held great value to Avista, our customers and Genworth,” Avista Solutions CEO Mark Phlieger said. “This new partnership with Genworth allows our users to easily connect borrowers with a high quality MI product that will ultimately help them attract more borrowers and close more loans.”

In addition to offering new rates and expanded underwriting guidelines, Genworth is a full-service MI provider with a commitment to industry leading coverage, service and value. Benefits of MI from Genworth include Job Loss Protection, which can pay a qualifying borrower’s mortgage up to $2,000 a month for up to six months; a Homeowner Assistance Program, a one-on-one partnership with a Genworth professional available in the event of a financial hardship; and Homebuyer Privileges, which comprise up to $3,000 in rebates, discounts and special offers.

By ordering MI from Genworth through their Avista Agile LOS, Avista customers can eliminate the hassle of duplicate data entry, receive MI commitment documents in .pdf format and experience improved productivity through faster processing and response time.

“It is important to our customers to have seamless electronic data interface options,” said Robert Noble, Genworth Mortgage Insurance’s Vice President of Information Technology. “These interfaces improve productivity and reduce the time to generate a Genworth MI commitment. We are pleased to be able to provide customers with reliable processing of MI submissions to Genworth through Avista’s LOS offering.”
