Ellie Mae, a provider of software and services for the mortgage industry, has partnered with First American Title Insurance Co., a subsidiary of The First American Corporation, to offer automated account set up and ordering of First American's title insurance and escrow services through Ellie Mae's Encompass Mortgage Management Solution.
With this enhanced functionality, Encompass users can now immediately receive account credentials online – a process that previously took up to two days – and expedite title and escrow service orders. Within a single order request, users may select their preferred title office, request a specific closing agent, pay-off information and verifications of homeowner's insurance and homeowner's association dues.
‘Ordering title and closing services through Encompass is really catching on with our users as they increasingly realize the importance of operating efficiently in order to increase profitability,’ says Richard Roof, senior vice president of Ellie Mae. ‘Adding automated title account setup quickly facilitates our customers' interactions with the First American Title office and lets them choose the staff and services they prefer.’
