WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (10/12/11)--Lenders can now originate loans using OpenClose’s Web-based loan origination software (LOS) through their Safari Web browsers on iPads and Macs. That means credit unions can take an iPad into the community and perform on-the-spot loan originations. “Originators today need to be able to do business in real time, anytime and everywhere, all the while connecting with their borrowers and associates in a social way,” said Jason Regalbuto, OpenClose CEO. “OpenClose on an iPad makes that happen like no other solution can.” Loan originators using OpenClose’s Lender Assist employ a 3G-connected iPad to check rates, originate a loan, pull credit, lock the loan and get live responses, Regalbuto said. OpenClose offers software as a service computing solutions for the financial industry.
