SAN DIEGO–()–Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions Executive Vice President and General Manager Steve Meirik and Tom HurstSales Manager for Wolters Kluwer eOriginal, will provide insight into the accelerating pace and benefits of digital technology that lenders are integrating into their daily practices at Mortgage Bankers Association 2021 Annual Meeting. The event takes place between October 17and and 20and at the San Diego Convention Center.

“The growing adoption of technologies to facilitate secure, streamlined and contactless online mortgage transactions that we have seen in recent years has accelerated exponentially during the Covid pandemic, and this meteoric trajectory promises to continue. as mortgage institutions reap the benefits of greater transaction speed, accuracy and transparency fintech brings to their businesses, to the delight of their customers,” Meirink said.

Meirink also noted that digital mortgage transactions powered by Wolters Kluwer technology have grown significantly over the past year, jumping 141% over the previous 12 months (for the period ending July 30, 2021).

“We have seen the growing demand for secure, streamlined and contactless mortgage closings, not only in response to social distancing requirements, but also the growing awareness among lenders of the cost savings benefits generated by the eClosing technology,” added Meirink. “Our proprietary research shows that eClosing technology can save independent mortgage originators up to 90% in interest costs for warehouse capital, which is just one of the many benefits of digitizing mortgages. mortgage closings.”

Another technology that is seeing rapid adoption, remote online notarization (RON), further facilitates lenders’ adoption of electronic mortgage closing transactions.

“RON technology has evolved from a ‘nice to have’ item to an essential component for lenders, as it ensures a truly remote online experience for conducting mortgage transactions online,” Hurst noted. “However, as no single RON tool covers all mortgage closing scenarios, we provide a technology platform that allows lenders to select and activate the best-fit RON solutions to complement their mortgage product portfolio.”

The MBA conference marks the first major event where eOriginal and Wolters Kluwer have co-presented their combined capabilities since Wolters Kluwer acquired eOriginal in late 2020.

“Wolters Kluwer and eOriginal have partnered to create the industry’s most trusted end-to-end digital mortgage technology to simplify and accelerate digital mortgages,” Meirink said, explaining that the combined entities’ digitization strategy is based on on open technologies and an ecosystem. of trusted partners, offering institutions and borrowers maximum choice. For example, the RON Hub integrated into the eOriginal ClosingCenter allows mortgage lenders and settlement agents to select the best remote online notarization (RON) partner solution that meets their unique needs.

Wolters Kluwer’s eOriginal technology has helped advance other capabilities in lending, including its work with Ginnie Mae in late 2020 to enable securitization of mortgage-backed securities for the first time using eNotes, rather than paper tickets, as acceptable collateral. The growing adoption of eNotes opens the door to wider adoption of digital mortgages by a range of mortgage lenders that issue loan products insured by Ginnie Mae and others.
