For the last decade, servicers have been focused on compliance and updating processes to protect the borrower. While these are critically important tasks, they continue to increase the cost of servicing a loan, which is higher today than ever before.
As a result, servicers are now focused on identifying ways to improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs and increase customer retention.
Black Knight understands the challenges servicers face. The company has integrated its advanced origination and servicing technologies, data and analytics solutions, artificial intelligence and business intelligence tools to provide clients with the knowledge and products to optimize their performance.
Black Knight’s servicing technologies, which include the industry-leading MSP mortgage servicing system, automates all areas of loan servicing, including setup and maintenance, customer service, cashiering, escrow administration, investor accounting and default management.
These solutions also support home equity loans and lines of credit. Using a single integrated servicing system for mortgages and home equity products can increase operational efficiencies and is less costly than supporting separate systems.
Black Knight’s suite of default solutions provides end-to-end support for streamlining the servicing of non-performing loans. Integrated within MSP, these solutions support evolving regulatory requirements and provide an audit trail for compliance reviews.
Black Knight’s advanced business intelligence platform is also integrated with MSP to help servicers take advantage of data across their entire servicing operation. Linking this servicing data with Black Knight’s public records information and proprietary industry data gives clients clearer insight into opportunities for revenue, retention and risk mitigation.
The integration of the Black Knight Servicing Digital app with MSP gives servicing clients another advantage. Servicing Digital is a consumer-centric, responsive web and mobile solution that provides financial institution customers fast, continual access to home and loan information that is relevant and easy to understand.
The app gives mortgage customers the ability to make loan payments from their mobile devices, offers detailed, timely and personalized information about their loans, and provides what-if simulators and tools to show how wealth can be built from these real estate assets.
Servicing Digital also offers servicers a convenient platform for continual engagement in order to foster robust, lifelong relationships with their customers.
The app is being integrated with an all-in-one home concierge suite that will enable homeowners to digitally track home maintenance information and records, be notified of upcoming service needs, and easily schedule repairs and services from a list of pre-approved contractors.
These additional capabilities enhance Servicing Digital’s offerings and create valuable cross-sell opportunities to their customers, enhancing customer relationships.
Servicing Digital is integrated with Black Knight’s digital capabilities within originations, including the innovative Point of Sale solution, which leverages machine learning to expedite the loan application approval process.
Black Knight continues to innovate and introduce new solutions, with a strong focus on investing back into its products to help clients remain competitive and to address critical client needs to improve profitability and customer retention. The company also continually enhances its systems to support regulatory changes and holds a proven record of conversions that are on-time and within budget.
