Stucky, DocuTech union, and real estate industries, announced the latest version of LRES DirectConnect, an integration framework enabling clients and third-party systems to integrate into the LRES LINK order management platform to optimize appraisal order processing. The latest version's enhancements enable data to meet the uniform standard as determined by the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO).

"Our latest version of DirectConnect enhances the speed, accuracy, and risk management capabilities with which we process orders for appraisals," said LRES CEO Roger Beane. "Lenders can use these enhancements to reduce the time and energy they spend on the appraisal process and increase their focus on closing more loans." LendingQB Partners with DocuTech to Streamline Processes Both companies hope to align their loan origination software and compliant document prep software systems to create an efficient user experience. L endingQB, a provider of end-to-end loan origination software (LOS), and DocuTech, a provider of enterprise-class compliant document preparation software, announced a partnership to integrate their platforms. LendingQB's browserbased LOS is now integrated with DocuTech's ConformX system, enabling users to manage all aspects of document preparation directly from within LendingQB's LOS. "The new disclosure rules and other regulations make it critical that lenders have an LOS and document system that ensures dynamic, compliant documents for every loan," said DocuTech COO Scott K. Stucky. "Our long-term strategic partnership with LendingQB allows us to deliver strong compliance and a great deal of value with an extremely tight integration." All loan data resides in LendingQB, thus eliminating the exchange of potentially inaccurate disclosures that may be out of compliance and removing the time-consuming process of entering and reentering data in the document system—freeing up employees to focus on other tasks and increasing productivity. "Upon seeing the integration, there's a 'wow factor' that can't be described unless one sees the integrations in action," said David Colwell, VP of corporate strategy at LendingQB. "The commonalities that our organizations have made a strategic alliance an ideal fit to service mutual customers. We look forward to collaborating with DocuTech to board new clients."
