JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Aug. 25, 2022 – Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI) announced that Union Home Mortgage, a high-growth independent mortgage banking company with over 150 branches across the U.S., has selected the Black Knight MSP loan servicing system to support its servicing operations. After a thorough assessment of multiple servicing technologies in the mortgage industry, Union Home Mortgage chose Black Knight’s innovative solutions as the optimal choice to help the company enhance the customer experience, boost operational efficiencies and help manage regulatory requirements.
Used by financial institutions to service approximately 37 million active loans, MSP is a comprehensive, end-to-end system that supports all aspects of servicing for first mortgages, as well as home equity loans and lines of credit, on a single platform. MSP is used to service more loans than any other servicing system in the industry.
“After a diligent search for a high-performance system and solutions that could support our operational and customer service goals, we decided to go with Black Knight for its unmatched combination of leading solutions and an experienced support team with in-depth knowledge of both the technology and mortgages,” said Bill Cosgrove, president and CEO of Union Home Mortgage. “Through its continued investments in MSP and digital innovations, Black Knight has demonstrated their dedication to advancing mortgage servicing for the benefit of lender clients and their mortgage customers.”
In addition to MSP, Union Home Mortgage will implement the Servicing Digital solution, which gives customers self-service access to customized, timely information about their mortgages and homes. This powerful application supports deeper consumer relationships and engagement by giving customers the tools they need to make mortgage payments and explore opportunities for home equity products, refinancing and more – all from the convenience of the web or a mobile device.
Union Home Mortgage’s support representatives will also use the innovative Black Knight Customer Service solution to access a detailed, holistic and timely view of the key information needed to deliver exemplary service at the point of customer contact. The solution presents a customer’s loan, home and neighborhood information through an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical interface – helping representatives respond to customer questions more quickly, accurately and efficiently.
Since Union Home Mortgage is implementing both Customer Service and Servicing Digital, the company’s support representatives will have a view of what homeowners are seeing when they contact customer service, facilitating an even more productive and enriching conversation. Customer Service and Servicing Digital were developed with a cloud-first approach, so Union Home Mortgage can deliver innovative, secure and scalable solutions to their customers to support their evolving digital needs.
To help streamline default processes, Union Home Mortgage will also add Black Knight’s suite of default solutions to help reduce cycle times, decrease operating costs and improve efficiencies for nonperforming loans. This includes Loss Mitigation, a feature-rich, web-based solution that supports industry-standard retention and liquidation workouts to assist with streamlining operations and mitigating risk. Loss Mitigation leverages advanced rules and logic to guide users through processes step-by-step, including validation points throughout the workflow.
Union Home Mortgage is also taking advantage of several servicing-focused data and analytics solutions from Black Knight, including the Actionable Intelligence Platform, which delivers strategic, proactive and actionable analytics to the right people across an organization at the right time for meaningful insights on which actions to take next. Additionally, the company will leverage Black Knight McDash industry reports, which provide delinquency and prepayment overviews, roll rates, and state-level mortgage performance data. These reports are used to support benchmarking and analysis, portfolio management, strategy development and more.
“We welcome Union Home Mortgage to the Black Knight family, and we are committed to going above and beyond with our efforts to support their success,” said Joe Nackashi, CEO of Black Knight. “By investing in both MSP and multiple other Black Knight premier solutions, Union Home Mortgage will be able to realize even greater advantages to take their operations and customer experience to the next level.”
