Users will then be able to proceed with uploading their lock information. In addition, ClickLoan will allow approved mortgage brokers to upload their borrowers' lock information directly into www.abconduit.com through their preferred LOS. Mortgage brokers will log into the ABC Web site and have the ability to select from five leading programs--Encompass, Genesis 2000, Contour, Calyx Point and Byte--and upload loan information securely from whichever LOS they prefer. Both the ePASS and ClickLoan upload options will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In the last year alone, more than eight million transactions were completed through the ePass Network.
