In addition, Empower's POS Desktop leverages existing Empower technology with direct access and integration with industry-leading Fidelity products and services, including flood determinations, real estate tax service, Automated Valuation Models (AVMs), credit reports and the industry's premier loan servicing platform, Mortgage Servicing Package (MSP).
