Mortgage Builder Software has announced plans of a newly redesigned origination platform. The next-generation Mortgage Builder LOS also bears a new name—the first name change in 14 years for the company’s flagship product. Known since 1998 as Mortgage Builder, the new platform will be named Architect. Mortgage Builder has been working on the new and improved platform for nearly two years in preparation for its October industrywide rollout.
The re-architecture of Mortgage Builder’s core LOS solution includes a forward-looking plan and takes advantage of the most current technology available. The structure of Architect is built using WCF (Windows Communication Foundation), WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation), and XAML, all on a .NET framework. The new infrastructure of Architect will allow for continued growth in the platform as the industry and client needs change.
“With this new technology, we will be able to make swift changes for our customers system-wide as well as at the individual client level. This will greatly decrease time to delivery for product enhancements and client customizations,” said Kelli Himebaugh, corporate vice president at Mortgage Builder.
“We took our time to make certain that we got it right,” said Keven Smith, Mortgage Builder president and CEO. "Architect builds on the popularity of the classic Mortgage Builder LOS and makes it even easier to use, with increased automation, a modern visual aesthetic that creates a more efficient working environment, and a seamless transition for current customers. At the same time, Architect is built to lower implementation timeframes and costs for new clients with its cloud-based engineering and additional features."
The same foundation technology is also being extended to its loan servicing software system, G/Serv. These infrastructure changes for the G/Serv platform are scheduled for completion early next year. Architect is joined by Blueprint, its advanced electronic document management (EDM) module for paperless lending and digital file delivery ease, and Surveyance, Mortgage Builder’s Web-based loan originator portal, featuring highly useful mobile applications components to maximize field time for loan officers and others. Both modules have been redesigned to work flawlessly within Architect, and have been renamed accordingly to reflect their recent enhancements and expanded functionality.
