October 14, 2018 – Englewood Cliffs, NJ – Blue Sage, developers of the mortgage industry’s first browser-based, end-to-end digital lending technology, announced that PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital Company and top 10 mortgage lender1 that originated more than $14.5 billion in mortgage loans last year, has chosen the Blue Sage Digital Lending Platform as its new mortgage origination platform.
The Blue Sage Digital Lending Platform is a completely cloud-based, highly scalable solution capable of supporting any mortgage channel, including retail, wholesale and correspondent lines of business.
“We are laser-focused on delivering the best mortgage experience and, in our opinion, Blue Sage gives us a tremendous advantage now and in the future,” said Tim Elkins, CIO, EVP of PrimeLending. “Because of Blue Sage’s unique combination of mortgage industry expertise and open architecture capable of seamless integration and automation capabilities, we will be substantially better positioned to evolve and improve efficiencies over time. Blue Sage was a great fit – there is simply nothing else on the market like it.”
Built on a modern technology stack by a proven team of experienced mortgage technology professionals, the Blue Sage Digital Lending Platform represents the peak of process automation available in the mortgage industry today. Highly event-driven, the platform handles pricing, underwriting and decision-making from the point-of-sale stage all the way to the closing and funding of the loan. Because Blue Sage can be easily integrated with third party services due to its rich set of APIs and integration options, an unlimited number of third party vendor services, such as appraisals, title and flood insurance can also be ordered online through the Blue Sage platform. Blue Sage also includes mobile applications and CRM tools geared to helping loan officers increase sales.
“We are beyond thrilled that a powerhouse lender like PrimeLending has placed its trust in the Blue Sage platform,” said Joe Langner, CEO of Blue Sage. “Based on its large origination volume, a lender the size of PrimeLending can achieve enormous savings by leveraging our digital mortgage technology.
