Usherpa Blog - Usherpa® announces integration with the ICE Mortgage Technology Platform
DENVER, JUNE 29, 2021 -- Usherpa, the real estate and mortgage industry’s original enterprise CRM technology, announced today that their integration is now built on the latest Partner Connect API Platform and available through ICE Mortgage TechnologyTM, part of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), a leading global provider of data, technology and market infrastructure. By leveraging ICE Mortgage Technology’s latest technology, Usherpa’s clients can benefit from a seamless integration, resulting in faster results.
“We’re proud to be partnering with ICE Mortgage Technology. Enabling direct access to their Encompass® LOS through Encompass® Next Generation APIs allows for a more secure method of sharing information rather than the back and forth process of sharing an SDK key which frees our developers from time wasted whenever the LOS is updated,” said Chris Harrington, President and Co-Founder of Usherpa. “We’ve been able to see first-hand the increase in efficiency our users will experience through this new connection.”
One of the biggest reasons lenders want a seamless connection between their marketing automation and their loan origination system is in-process marketing, the evolved form of loan status updates. Customer experience studies performed on actual mortgage borrowers have clearly shown that better information provided to the consumer throughout the loan origination process leads to substantially higher customer satisfaction scores. This translates directly into more repeat and referral business for the lender.
“In-process marketing is so important for the lender,” said Dan Harrington, Usherpa CEO. “It not only increases customer satisfaction, but it also increases pull-through and thereby reduces the lender’s cost-to-close. Usherpa is designed to allow the lender to define the milestones in the origination process and we can customize automated updates for the borrower, the listing agent, the buyer’s agent and other parties involved in the transaction. Lenders who do this are more successful.”
Most lenders have about seven milestones that trigger status updates to their borrowers, but Usherpa routinely assists its users with setting up milestone workflows with customizable emails, text messages, and video marketing, increasing the number of borrower touchpoints and creating a more satisfying home financing experience. This new Encompass integration makes it simpler for Usherpa’s enterprise clients to quickly set up in-process marketing to their own specifications, without stressing their internal IT resources. When in-process marketing is customized for listing agents, lenders build stronger relationships with these important business referral partners and win more business. Usherpa makes this easy.
Today, Usherpa has evolved into the industry’s most sophisticated, cloud-based CRM/Marketing Automation system. Now referred to as Relationship Engagement, the company’s software has helped thousands of loan officers stay connected with partners and clients. These LO’s have helped hundreds of thousands of borrowers fulfill their dreams of homeownership.
