The company does retail mortgage lending through its 16 branches and has a mortgage correspondent program. “Increasing both our first and second mortgage production is a priority for us, so we were looking for an LOS that would provide us with a more efficient workflow for both retail and wholesale, and provide a complete solution,” said Lisa Albany, vice president of real estate lending at Citadel. “Encompass lets us tailor our workflows for each channel. Also, when we compared what’s included with Encompass versus having to integrate with additional third-party providers, the ROI was a major factor. Based on our analysis of our business needs, we expect Encompass to deliver 50% production savings and higher loan quality by allowing us to review more loan files with lower review and audit costs.” Citadel will also be using Ellie Mae’s Total Quality Loan (TQL) best practice workflow processes, integrated in Encompass, to improve efficiency and compliance.
