Following only a 60-day implementation period, Wintrust Mortgage, a Chicago-based national lender with over 30 branches, has gone live with Mortgage Builder Software's Web-based loan origination platform.
Wintrust Mortgage recently merged one of the Chicago area's largest mortgage originators into its existing mortgage company. Bringing together these two companies, Professional Mortgage Partners and WestAmerica Mortgage Co., has created a multi-channel mortgage bank, originating loans with retail, wholesale and correspondent capabilities.
David Hrobon, president of Wintrust Mortgage, says the system was chosen for its end-to-end capacity, vendor stability, pipeline management and reporting capabilities, and quick implementation.
"Mortgage Builder's hosted platform meant they handled all the technology complications, so we could concentrate on getting our people up and running quickly," Hrobon says. "That's the only way we could have accomplished everything in 60 days with about 400 people to train."
