Loan-Score Decisioning Systems Integrates With PCLender

Seamless Automated Underwriting Services Accessible Through Enterprise LOS

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 8, 2007) - Loan-Score Decisioning Systems LLC, an emerging leader in enterprise-class automated underwriting solutions for lending institutions, has completed a comprehensive, seven-point integration with PCLender, a Web-based software and service solution provider for mortgage bankers. The integration provides PCLender's client base with seamless access to Loan-Score's automated underwriting system (AUS) directly from its loan enterprise lending platform.

Loan-Score's AUS delivers instant product eligibility, pricing and automated underwriting approvals complete with all possible conditions to the point-of-sale (POS) for the wholesale, retail and correspondent/conduit lending channels. Once a 1003 is entered into Loan-Score's system and the loan is decisioned, data elements are automatically matched and populated into the appropriate fields in PCLender's LOS, thus eliminating the need to re-key data and reducing costly errors. The integration also allows for the flow of loan-level details and real-time status between back-end processing staff and loan officers at POS Web portals.

"In today's volatile mortgage market it is pivotal that lenders accurately price and underwrite loans of high quality," said Scott Burgess, president of Loan-Score. "Whether evaluating A, B or C paper, the tight integration between our AUS and PCLender's enterprise lending platform offers its users assurance that their loan was approved in accordance with ever-changing secondary market conditions and investor guidelines. While there are many product and pricing engines available on the market today that purport to offer AU, the vast majority of them do not come close to returning the complex, layered-risk analysis required of a true automated underwriting solution. The use of Loan-Score's AUS through PCLender ensures that loans unequivocally meet the many nuances of investor guidelines to find best-fit homes for loans, and that those loans are not later kicked back by highly discriminating investors on a trivial technicality."

"Expert underwriting is inseparable from quality lending, especially at a time when loan files are under close scrutiny and compliance is increasingly complex," said Lionel Urban, president of PCLender. "Loan-Score's advanced AUS solution adds value to our customers who want to take advantage of true automated underwriting integrated directly from our loan processing system. The professional credit policy team at Loan-Score does an expert job of updating constantly changing investor guidelines and rates to ensure elevated quality control measures. We are pleased to make Loan-Score available to our growing client base."

The new integration also allows lender-controlled levels of information and pipeline visibility to easily be displayed for production staff using Loan-Score's broker, retail or correspondent/conduit portals.
