Ellie Mae and Mortech Launch New Integration

Interface provides seamless access to one-stop solution for managing leads, securing real-time price quotes and determining product eligibility

PLEASANTON, CA and LINCOLN, NE—February 9, 2010—Ellie Mae®, the enterprise mortgage origination solutions technology provider for mortgage bankers, mortgage brokers, community banks, credit unions and other mortgage lenders, and Mortech, Inc., a mortgage technology software company specializing in daily pricing, product decisioning and lead management, have announced an integrated offering of their flagship solutions.

This integration enables customers of Ellie Mae’s Encompass360 and Encompass Mortgage Management Solutions to access Mortech’s Marksman product and pricing engine for real-time pricing quotes, product eligibility details and even lead management tools—all directly from their Encompass software. Access between the two solutions is seamless. Borrower information flows from lead generation platforms, such as Google AdWords Comparison Ads, through Marksman’s lead management pipeline directly into Encompass.

“It is imperative to work with business partners whose strengths we can leverage within a single interface,” says President and Chief Executive Officer Monte Robbins of CapWest Mortgage Corporation, a user of both Encompass360 and Marksman. “The integration of these powerful technologies has helped increase our productivity and efficiency, while complementing our primary focus of providing a superior customer experience.”

Widely used by some of the largest mortgage bankers and online lenders in the nation, Mortech’s Marksman captures and nurtures mortgage leads from any lead source. What’s more, Mortech recently announced its collaboration with Google to provide instant rate quotes, create business lead assignment rules and track and manage prospects for participating lenders of Google’s new AdWords Comparison Ads feature. Ellie Mae’s Encompass360 and Encompass Mortgage Management Solutions are used by an estimated 50,000+ mortgage professionals to transact approximately 20% of the total U.S. mortgage originations annually.

“Encompass and Encompass360 facilitate connections that make it faster, easier and more efficient to conduct business,” says Chief Strategy Officer Jonathan Corr for Ellie Mae. “Freedom of choice, combined with the ability to do more in less time, is something that our customers have come to rely on us to provide. We’re very pleased to be bringing Encompass users a seamless way to access all of the features and benefits of the Mortech Marksman solution.”

“Our customers rely on us to find innovative solutions for everyday issues,” says President Don Kracl of Mortech. “By partnering with Ellie Mae, we are merging Encompass’ comprehensive and robust mortgage management capabilities with Marksman’s industry leading eligibility, pricing and lead management platform to produce stronger business connections. We’re confident this synergistic integration will be a huge value-add to our joint customers.”
