Black Knight Inc. has released a new mobile app for the Optimal Blue PPE product, pricing and eligibility engine.
Now available for iOS users, the Optimal Blue PPE (OB) Mobile app gives loan officers the added flexibility to access scenario pricing functionality from any location to assist in conversations with prospective borrowers.
“We are highly engaged with our clients, and we continuously look for ways to better serve their needs,” says Kevin McMahon, president of Optimal Blue, a division of Black Knight. “Our decision to enhance our digital capabilities to deliver OB Mobile is a direct outcome of this feedback; our clients told us they preferred a mobile app over a mobile-friendly website, and we delivered. OB Mobile is an extension of our commitment to both our clients and ongoing innovation, and we look forward to continued investments to serve the market.”
OB Mobile allows users to price scenarios and save favorites to a dashboard for quick access. With a single tap, scenarios can be refreshed to show the best product, rate and price, as well as any interest rate movement on a given day. The app displays the full array of pricing inputs and granularity currently available on the web version of the Optimal Blue PPE, including custom fields. All eligible products and rates are presented, including any adjustments, notes and advisories. Ineligible products are also displayed, along with a reason for ineligibility.
“The flexibility to access quotes anytime and anywhere adds valuable time back in a busy loan officer’s day,” McMahon adds. “Most importantly, it helps them provide the best possible experience to prospective homebuyers, which is crucial in today’s competitive market.”
