JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nov. 21, 2022 – Today, Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI) announced that Colonial Savings F.A., a national, multi-service financial institution headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, has signed a contract to use Black Knight’s ecosystem of servicing capabilities, including the MSP loan servicing system. Colonial chose Black Knight for its powerful, consumer-focused servicing solutions that are designed to enhance the customer experience, support retention strategies and deliver greater operational efficiencies.
“Black Knight is a proven market leader with highly regarded solutions and a track record of delivering on their promise of new innovation,” said Tim Neer, Senior Vice President, Colonial. “By trusting our servicing portfolio to Black Knight’s technology, we gain a new level of assurance at Colonial – one only Black Knight can provide.”
At the core of Black Knight’s servicing ecosystem is MSP, a comprehensive, end-to-end loan servicing system that supports all aspects of servicing, from loan boarding to default. Using MSP and Black Knight’s integrated servicing solutions will not only help Colonial enhance the customer experience, but it will also help the company realize greater operational efficiencies and manage regulatory compliance.
Black Knight’s customer-centric capabilities are focused on exceeding the needs of homeowners throughout the servicing journey. This includes providing them with convenient, self-service tools and speedy resolutions, as well as offering technology that can help them remain in their home during periods of hardship.
Servicing Digital – an interactive, consumer-facing web and mobile solution – gives homeowners easy access to customized, timely information about their mortgage and home. This powerful application supports deeper consumer relationships and engagement by enabling customers to make mortgage payments and explore opportunities for refinancing and more – all from the convenience of the web or a mobile device.
Colonial will also use Customer Service, which gives support representatives access to detailed, holistic and timely information at the point of customer contact. The solution presents loan, home and neighborhood information through an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical interface – helping representatives deliver exemplary service by responding to questions quickly, accurately and efficiently. Since Colonial is implementing both Customer Service and Servicing Digital, the company’s support representatives will have a view of what their homeowners are seeing on their mobile device when they call, facilitating an even more productive and enriching conversation.
Colonial will use Loss Mitigation – a feature-rich, web-based solution that supports industry-standard retention, collections and liquidation workouts – to support customers experiencing hardship, with the objective of helping them remain in their home. Loss Mitigation leverages advanced rules and logic to guide users through processes step-by-step, including validation points throughout the workflow, to reduce missed steps and overlooked information.
“By choosing Black Knight’s suite of customer-first solutions, Colonial will be well positioned to deliver the self-service capabilities today’s consumers expect, which can result in higher retention rates and business growth,” said Joe Nackashi, CEO, Black Knight. “They selected us for the innovations we deliver, and it’s our privilege to continue bringing the latest capabilities to Colonial – and all of our servicing clients.”
