Freddie Mac and Ellie Mae Partner to Enhance Mortgage Technology Offerings
Mortgage industry leaders integrate technology, providing joint clients with enhanced workflows
November 10, 2015 – Pleasanton, Calif. – Ellie Mae® (NYSE: ELLI), a leading provider of innovative on-demand software solutions and services for the residential mortgage industry, announced today it has entered into a partnership with Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) to integrate components from Freddie Mac’s Loan Advisor Suitesm into Encompass®, Ellie Mae’s all-in-one mortgage management solution. With a Congressionally mandated mission to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the U.S. housing market, Freddie Mac buys mortgage loans and issues guaranteed mortgage-related securities.
The companies will collaborate to further integrate Freddie Mac’s Loan Prospector® and Loan Quality Advisorsm, Loan Advisor Suite’s automated underwriting and risk and loan eligibility tools, with Encompass to develop more efficient workflows for the mortgage industry. In addition, Ellie Mae and Freddie Mac will assess future integration opportunities as new Loan Advisor Suite components are introduced, like the recently announced Loan Collateral Advisorsm. The end result will allow Ellie Mae customers to originate loans within Freddie Mac guidelines more easily and with greater certainty.
Freddie Mac’s Loan Advisor Suite is a set of integrated software applications being developed to give lenders a way to originate and deliver high quality mortgages to Freddie Mac and gain insight into representation and warranty relief earlier in the loan production process. Loan Advisor Suite will become available in 2016.
Ellie Mae’s Encompass solution enables banks, credit unions and mortgage lenders to create and fund mortgages in one system of record for compliance review, quality assurance and improved efficiency at every loan stage. Encompass is used by more than 135,000 mortgage professionals and thousands of mortgage companies, including six of the 20 largest U.S. mortgage lenders.
“At Ellie Mae, our mission is to provide our lenders with innovative solutions throughout the entire loan process while ensuring the highest level of compliance, loan quality and efficiency,” said Joe Tyrrell, executive vice president at Ellie Mae. “Through this partnership, we will make it even easier for our lenders to do business with Freddie Mac.”

We look forward to partnering with Ellie Mae to help our customers succeed.”
