Is Loan Origination Software on Your Resolution List?

Posted by Frank Bocchino on Wed, Jan 08, 2014


We all make resolutions for ourselves come the New Year, but what about a New Year's resolution for our lending business? 

That's another way of looking at budgets I suppose, but we tend to look at budgets to add to what we have rather than change it. And resolutions are about change.

Maybe you've been relying upon the same software vendor for years? Maybe they've been promising to improve or to add those features you need year after year but never do?

Is Loan Origination Software on your resolution list? It should be. And finding the best mortgage software can be difficult. 

We suggest you take a look at OpenClose. It has been developed to change with the market and for a growing mortgage banker.

Posted by Frank Bocchino on Fri, Sep 27, 2013

Who's leading the LOS charge, coach?

Posted by Frank Bocchino on Thu, Sep 05, 2013



Next week Football season begins --  and so does loan origination software (LOS) season.

Many lenders use the fourth quarter to select a vendor to lead their charge in mortgage technology. Many vendors say they  "can" and "will" but if you ask around, you'll find few have the experience. We're not just software vendors, we're teammates leading the charge through experience. 

At OpenClose, we know that a successful integration requires teamwork and experience. We like to think of ourselves as affordable superstars. We pioneered the Web-based mortgage yet our technology remains on the cutting edge.  Many of our employees are ex-mortgage bankers themselves. That's why the transition to a new LOS runs smoothly, from sales to implementation to support.

Band aids won’t help that Loan Origination Software (LOS)

Posted by Frank Bocchino on Fri, Aug 16, 2013
Some loan origination software vendors use technology "band-aids" -- short cuts that mask the problems temporarily until something else breaks. That's because adding new functionality to old software is often too costly, too time consuming, or downright impossible.

Whether it's adhering to new compliance laws or adding custom functionality, OpenClose's all Web-based technology  makes changes that make your LOS better -- not buggier .

Mortgage software from a giant or a friend?

Posted by Frank Bocchino on Tue, Jul 16, 2013
Global consulting firm Accenture announced plans Monday to acquire loan originations and software document management services firm Mortgage Cadence.
If you're a mortgage lender, a bank, or becoming one you have to ask yourself, do I want to to get my loan origination software from a giant? Certainly there are some advantages of all that buying power but it comes down to being a small fish in a big pond or a big fish in a small pond I suppose. 
At OpenClose, we don't treat customers like big fish or little fish, but simply as friends. Loan origination software requires partnership to work and that begins with mutual trust, knowledge, and experience.
If you are looking for a mortgage software company that has a solid track record with big companies and small and treats its customers like partners, give us a call.

OpenClose: First Quarter right on track

Posted by Frank Bocchino on Thu, Apr 25, 2013

describe the image

OpenClose had one of its best years in sales while continuing to enhance its product offering to meet the needs of the residential mortgage banking industry. Perhaps the greatest testament to our mortgage software and service is that many of our customers’ contracts came up for renewal last year and all re-signed.

Keeping compliance in the forefront, OpenClose has continued to make the loan process easier to use across platforms. Most notably it released OC Optics: a new Enterprise Reporting System that combines configurable management dashboard tools with a powerful graph and reporting solution to be used with its loan origination software. 

A matured LOS, OpenClose continues with the spirit of innovators and continued to make strides in burgeoning areas through our social media management software as well as a being a recognized as a financial social media influencer through our blog.  According to one recent study, about 52% of U.S. adults now use social media - 81% of people ages 18 to 24, 67% of 25-to-34-year-olds and 59% of 35-to-44-year-olds. In the next 5 years 70% of mortgage originations will come from Gen X and Gen Y consumers.  OpenClose anticipates the needs of the industry rather than waits to catch up.
