Hippo Insurance, a California-based “insurtech” company, is now integrated with LendingQB’s loan origination system (LOS), thus making ordering home insurance easier for mortgage lenders and consumers.
LendingQB says the integration creates new efficiencies for lenders to get an instant quote for earlier debt-to-income (DTI) and more accurate loan estimate (LE) and closing disclosures. As such, the integration helps lenders improve compliance and provide borrowers with a best-in-class user experience.
Policies have appropriate replacement costs, and the EOI is delivered automatically with the lender’s mortgagee clause included, Lending QB says in a release.
“The borrower of the future is increasingly becoming an online-first consumer,” says Assaf Wand, CEO and co-founder of Hippo Insurance. “Lenders who leverage our solution will enjoy the many benefits of Hippo Insurance. From a faster quoting process and online binding within minutes to a streamlined and accurate underwriting and processing, leaders who recommend Hippo will earn lifelong customers who will appreciate modern coverage and personalized customer service for years to come.”
“Our lenders appreciate having the option to use the point-of-sale tool that fits their particular business model or workflow,” adds David Colwell, vice president of LendingQB Strategy. “Partnering with Hippo Insurance reaffirms our commitment to ‘Leaner Lending and Better Borrowing.’ Our expertise in APIs and LOS best practices allows us to deliver the best solutions to enhance the lending experience for our lenders and their borrowers.”
