JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nov. 15, 2017 – Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE: BKI) announced today that New American Funding, a national mortgage banker, successfully implemented Black Knight’s LoanSphere Loss Mitigation solution – an industry-leading loss mitigation technology to provide timely loss mitigation assistance and information needed to help with the decision-making process.
LoanSphere Loss Mitigation is a web-based solution, offering comprehensive workflow and decisioning capabilities, which helps mortgage servicers through the complete loss mitigation process, while creating an audit trail to help support their compliance with changing government and investor requirements. This powerful technology features a decision engine that leverages sophisticated workflow to route tasks to the appropriate personnel in support of the loss mitigation process, including prequalification, underwriting and approval processing. The solution accommodates numerous workout options, including repayment plans, forbearance plans, loan modifications, short sales, deeds-in-lieu and partial claims. Additionally, dates, user names and actions taken on a loan are tracked for audit purposes.
LoanSphere Loss Mitigation also centralizes loan, property and decision data to help enhance customer service activities. Servicers’ single-point-of-contact representatives and loss mitigation specialists can view current information from a single system, helping borrowers make more informed decisions about their loans.
“Black Knight’s solution provides New American Funding with a single operating environment for all loss mitigation activities to help us more quickly update our systems to keep pace with evolving regulatory changes,” said James Clymer, executive vice president, Mortgage Servicing, at New American Funding. “Black Knight provided knowledgeable, helpful resources to assist us with implementing the necessary workflow to support our entire loss mitigation process. Our business is cyclical and servicers need to ask if they are prepared for the next wave of delinquencies and defaults. We are confident that LoanSphere Loss Mitigation puts us in a position to respond to the needs of our borrowers and to offer solutions in a timely and efficient manner.”
The solution is integrated with Black Knight’s LoanSphere MSP, a single, end-to-end servicing system used by financial institutions to manage all servicing processes. MSP is used to service more than 33 million active loans and helps servicers increase operational efficiency, reduce operating costs, and improve risk mitigation.
“We are pleased the close collaboration between Black Knight and New American Funding resulted in the successful implementation of our LoanSphere Loss Mitigation solution,” said Joe Nackashi, president of Black Knight. “Black Knight is committed to moving our customers and the mortgage industry forward with innovative solutions such as Loss Mitigation, digital capabilities and other technology advancements that will help our clients improve their results and better meet the changing needs of a new generation of borrowers.”
