JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jan. 28, 2021 – Today, Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI), a leading provider of integrated software, data and analytics to the mortgage and real estate industries, announced the successful completion of year-end loan processing for its mortgage and home equity servicing clients. All 2020 month-end, quarter-end and year-end processing – of more than 54 million loans – was completed within an 11-hour window. On Jan. 1, 2021, year-end processing was finished for all active and inactive loans serviced using Black Knight’s comprehensive, best-in-class MSP loan servicing system and processed in the company’s data center.
Year-end processing is a critical annual event that Black Knight has been executing successfully for decades. It is a necessary process for servicing clients to meet both internal and regulatory reporting requirements.
Black Knight servicing clients are required to annually report prior-year account information to borrowers to meet governmental regulations for the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of the Treasury and other agencies, as well as to meet internal reporting requirements. To help clients meet these annual obligations, Black Knight employees from departments across the company must complete hundreds of tasks to help servicers compile loan information; generate exception and balancing reports; and create annual statements for borrowers, all culminating in a single day. To provide additional support for its clients, Black Knight offered client training well in advance of the end of the year, so clients could complete the tasks necessary for a smooth and timely year-end processing. New this year, Black Knight and its clients executed the majority of the processing activities remotely due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our team rose to the challenges presented during this critical effort, approaching obstacles with resilience and dedication,” said Joe Nackashi, president, Black Knight. “This flexibility and adaptability are a great display of our experienced team’s unwavering commitment to providing exemplary service and a seamless year-end process to our clients.”
