SimpleNexus Launches Native Integration With Black Knight’s Empower 

SimpleNexus (, an nCino (NASDAQ: NCNO) company and developer of a U.S. homeownership platform for loan officers, borrowers, real estate agents and settlement agents, launched a new integration with Empower, Black Knight’s loan origination system (LOS). The bidirectional integration, available to financial institutions including independent mortgage banks nationwide, dynamically shares loan application data, milestone updates and documents in real time.

The integration between the SimpleNexus platform and Empower allows two-way sync of loan file data and milestone status updates. Additionally, this connection will offer borrowers the ability to securely photograph and upload documents from an Android or iOS mobile phone, while saving loan originators and back-office staff valuable time by eliminating the need for manual file import into other systems of record.

“We are excited about the opportunity this integration creates for us to help even more financial institutions and independent mortgage banks to work more efficiently and deliver seamless customer experiences,” said Ben Miller, CEO of SimpleNexus, an nCino Company. “Our integrations with best-in-class LOS providers like Black Knight make it easy for financial institutions to automate processes that enhance the experience for loan officers, the back office and borrowers alike.”

“Black Knight is continuing to help transform the mortgage industry by providing lenders with advanced technology capabilities to help streamline their operations and enhance the borrower experience,” said Rich Gagliano, president, Origination Technologies, Black Knight. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the SimpleNexus team and supporting their continued growth and success in the industry.”

“Ross Mortgage is pleased to be the first to utilize the new integration between SimpleNexus and Empower LOS,” said Ericka Staton, Ross Mortgage’s EVP of marketing. “We are deeply committed to delivering an unparalleled customer experience — in fact, it’s one of our core values, which we call our #RossWays — and this integration will allow us to do just that. In addition, the automatic flow of loan applications, milestone updates and borrower documents will give us a huge lift in efficiency.”
