Partnership will debut new SimpleNexus integrations with Black Knight’s Empower LOS and First American Docutech and in-app credit card payments

(LEHI, Utah) — NEWS: Top-ranked mortgage lender Embrace Home Loans today announced plans to roll out SimpleNexus, the leading homeownership platform for loan officers (LOs), borrowers, real estate agents and settlement agents, to more than 300 retail mortgage LOs before the end of the year.

SimpleNexus is currently the mortgage industry’s leading point-of-sale platform, serving more than 300 lenders across the United States. Embrace Home Loans is the first lender to leverage SimpleNexus in conjunction with Black Knight(r)’s Empower(r) loan origination system (LOS). Other unique aspects of the implementation include a new mobile disclosures integration with First American Docutech(r) and a first-of-its-kind feature that will allow borrowers to pay for appraisals in-app using a credit card.

“Embrace has been an amazing partner and has pushed us to extend SimpleNexus’ already market-leading feature set. We can’t wait to see how loan officers and borrowers respond to the improved experience,” said SimpleNexus Founder and CEO Matt Hansen. “Moreover, this partnership could serve as a model for future Empower LOS users who would like to experience the benefits of SimpleNexus’ end-to-end homeownership platform.”

Embrace Home Loans was founded in 1983 as a consumer-direct lender headquartered in Middletown, Rhode Island, and has been steadily growing its retail origination channel since 2009. In addition to its consumer direct platform, the company currently employs more than 300 loan officers at branches along the East Coast. Embrace believes the new integration will empower its loan officers to provide even greater customer service, according to Customer Experience Director and Vice President Meghan Handy.

“We’ve been in business for 38 years, so we have a clear perspective on how to customize things for our team. We needed a solution that was LO-centric and pliable enough to let our team continue serving customers and Realtors in the way they prefer,” said Handy. “SimpleNexus offers that kind of flexibility while at the same time equipping our LOs for success in the booming purchase market by transforming the way they work with borrowers and Realtors.”

Embrace employees can expect a gradual phase-in of the SimpleNexus platform over the next several months. Handy expects her company will be delivering an improved customer experience – and seeing a measurable lift to loan volume – before the end of 2021.
