As the U.S. mortgage industry continues to recover from the financial crisis of the last decade, it faces revolutionary change that’s forcing financial institutions to digitally transform their processes to remain relevant and competitive in the marketplace. The challenge is to achieve this transformation while maintaining compliance and margins.
The difficulty is that most mortgage firms’ technology has business rules embedded inconsistently and often inaccurately across the various systems that implement the end-to-end customer journey. Mortgage firms have instead taken to providing customers with digital tools that simplify, rather than complicate, their mortgage journeys.
