MortgageFlex Systems, Inc., Jacksonville, Fla., a provider of lending and servicing software solutions since 1980, recently announced that its LoanQuest LOS has been chosen by the Radius Financial Group Inc, Norwell, MA, to serve its loan origination needs. The hosted LoanQuest system selected includes the enterprise-level loan origination system and a Web Consumer portal that allows consumers immediate access to loan status.
“Our business needs required a system that is flexible enough to conform to our origination workflow requirements, not the other way around. LoanQuest proved that it was versatile and could be adapted as needed without significant programming resources,” said Keith Polaski, principal at Radius.
“We understand radius’ business requirements and are confident we will meet and exceed their needs,” said Craig Bechtle, chief operating officer, MortgageFlex. “We’re looking forward to a long and beneficial partnership.”
According to the two companies, Radius required a cost effective system that could be tailored to their specific needs. MortgageFlex met those requirements with a hosted option that is an exception among the “cloud” offerings in that each client has a distinct instance of the application and their own unique database in a secure, SSAE16 certified facility.
The arrangement is expected to give customers the flexibility to adapt the application without restrictions. This was a core requirement of Radius’ LOS selection criteria.
“Not sharing application code gives customers the advantages of premises installation without the hard costs,” said Bill Black, chief information officer, MortgageFlex. “We focus on providing the customer a secure and highly-available platform so the customer can focus on their business.”
Customers have the ability to add fields as needed without programming, control and monitor workflow activities, and drive system performance using integrated business rules.
MortgageFlex offers several hosting options, including transactional and SaaS. The transactional option allows lenders to “pay-as-used” on a per loan basis and is very beneficial for lending organizations that do not have technical infrastructure and support readily available. Hosted options also give lenders high levels of security with SSAE16 certified facilities and full Disaster Recovery sites.
Radius also required a system that could integrate easily with existing Xerox Blitz Docs software being used for e-signing and e-delivery. An established system-to-system interface with Blitz Docs has been in place for LoanQuest users for some time.
