Cloudvirga Completes Last Phase Of Certification With Optimal Blue

Cloudvirga, a provider of digital mortgage point-of-sale platforms, has completed final certification for full API integration with the Optimal Blue product, pricing and eligibility (PPE) engine and digital mortgage marketplace. Cloudvirga’s existing integration with Optimal Blue already included loan pricing and lock set services, which are two of Optimal Blue’s three pillars. The final certification, post-lock activities, is the third pillar.

The full API integration allows Cloudvirga users to access Optimal Blue services and data without leaving the Cloudvirga platform. Using the new post-lock functionality, brokers can now submit a new lock request or update, extend or revise a lock, including changing to a different loan program or to a different rate or price structure within the same rate sheet. The API integration is offered primarily through the Cloudvirga Wholesale Third-Party Origination (TPO) Platform, but it is also available to retail lenders using the Cloudvirga POS platform.

“This new integration is a real differentiator for brokers, giving them greater control of pricing discovery, rate lock and post-rate lock activities,” said Cloudvirga Chief Executive Officer Maria Moskver. “This full integration with Optimal Blue further enhances Cloudvirga’s ability to improve and streamline originations for brokers and ensures that borrowers have an excellent experience in the process.”

“Optimal Blue’s marketplace facilitates the most comprehensive set of functions in the industry, and we operate with a model of open integration and interoperability with other platforms,” said Clint Revels, Director of Integration Services, Optimal Blue. “We are proud to expand our partnership with Cloudvirga to offer comprehensive functionality that gives brokers access to pricing through Optimal Blue, from initial search and every milestone through loan funding. Post-lock functions in Cloudvirga will bring substantial efficiencies to the loan origination process.”

For Cloudvirga clients that are currently using the Optimal Blue pricing and lock set services, accessing the post-lock activity is a simple “turn it on” function.

Initial integration with Optimal Blue occurred in conjunction with the launch of the Cloudvirga TPO Platform, which was built in collaboration with mortgage professionals and brokers to provide a custom-built solution for their needs and operations. The TPO platform offers 24/7 borrower access to a broker-branded portal with a full suite of functionality for a seamless borrower experience. It allows brokers to make real-time updates and changes with easier preparation, delivery, and e-signing of lender disclosures with automated compliance.
