SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 19, 2016) - StreamLoan, the home mortgage process acceleration company, today announced that Alterra Home Loans has selected its platform to drive a new mobile initiative aimed at reducing the headaches that most customers, loan officers, realtors and other 3rd party professionals experience when dealing with mortgage applications.
"Here at Alterra we are constantly seeking a better way to do things. Innovation is a part of every conversation, as we understand that the next big idea can come from anywhere. That philosophy combined with our passion to help underserved markets has fueled our relentless pursuit of ways to streamline the digital workflow within our company," said Jason Madiedo, President and CEO of Alterra. "After reviewing a number of technology platforms, it was immediately clear that StreamLoan was the only company that could address our needs on all fronts. Our goal is to continue our rapid growth trend and serve our borrowers by reducing the friction points in the process and greatly improve their experience."
An End-to-End Enterprise Platform
While there are other companies focusing on the back-office side of mortgage lending or digitizing parts of the paper-laden application process, only StreamLoan has a dashboard-visible workflow that seamlessly connects the lending institution, the realtor and homebuyer. StreamLoan has created a comprehensive, mobile-first SaaS enterprise technology platform starting with the StreamLoan Financial Passport™ -- which is created and managed by the homebuyer and then easily shared with lenders when they decide to make a digital application. Not only does Passport improve a homebuyer's experience in making a first application, but in the event that he decides to apply to other lenders, or is forced to apply with another lender because he doesn't qualify or find the right financial mortgage product with the first lender, all following applications with other lenders would be just as easy. StreamLoan believes if the borrower wins, everyone wins.
StreamLoan Collaboration Suite™ offers seamless, instant communication across all of the professionals in the transaction, which spans not only chat, but enterprise workflow and enterprise content management. The enterprise policy management engine enforces role-based access controls across the platform, allowing for efficient and secure onboarding of users to aid in getting the mortgage done faster. StreamLoan Lender Suite™ provides all the tools to share underwriting guidelines and requirements effectively with borrowers all while delivering the best customer experience to borrowers, partners, and other stakeholders in the loan. Further, these powerful capabilities help deliver higher-quality customer service to borrowers -- and simultaneously grow top-line revenues for lenders.
"Alterra is a customer-focused, independent mortgage bank, so we don't have the giant engineering teams of the big lending institutions," said Larry Simpson, CTO of Alterra. "The largest banks have massive IT organizations. StreamLoan has a simple yet powerful platform that works with all legacy systems, is mobile first and 100% digital, which means a lot less overhead on our part to deliver. The time to value was almost zero as we were up and running in hours with them."
"The mortgage industry has scarcely changed in 100 years, and is ripe for innovation," said Stephen Bulfer, CEO and co-founder of StreamLoan. "We believe this all begins with the customer experience. StreamLoan's mobile platform takes a customer-first approach and puts the borrower in the driver's seat, enabling them to auto-complete many of the common loan application requirements by simply linking their relevant online financial accounts. The days of faxing and emailing bank and investment statements are over."
"For the lender, StreamLoan's technology platform plugs directly into its legacy systems and speeds processing times," Bulfer continued. "This combination of ease and speed can boost mortgage loan volume and velocity so that everyone wins. This community we have created is bringing unparalleled efficiency to the purchase process, allowing for new revenue and business growth across all professionals participating."
