Guardian Mortgage Documents to Expand Automated Compliance Offerings Through Interface with ComplianceEase
- Users of GMD's Next Generation Forms Engine (NGFE) will have "one touch" access to compliance solution through ComplianceEase's decision engine -

Lakewood, Colo. and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Sept. 20, 2004 - Through a strategic alliance agreement between Guardian Mortgage Documents (GMD) and ComplianceEase, a division of LogicEase Solutions Inc. (ComplianceEase®), GMD's web-based document production and workflow services will be integrated with ComplianceEase's web-based automated compliance system. Once implemented, the system will create a seamless user interface between GMD's Next Generation Forms Engine (NGFE), a solution that allows lenders to dynamically create, view and print customized closing documents as part of their normal workflow, and ComplianceEase's PredatorAnalyzer?? (PA??) solution.

ComplianceEase's PA is an intelligent decisioning system that automates regulatory compliance processes, with particular focus on federal, state, and municipal high-cost and anti-predatory lending regulations. Loan data will be automatically submitted from GMD's document engines and workflow applications for a comprehensive compliance review prior to document production. Results will be virtually instantaneous, after which documents will immediately be produced or, based on a lender or investor's specific risk tolerance parameters and custom policies, loans will be returned to the GMD user with detailed explanations concerning how to make the loan compliant.

"We continue to see lender IT investment focus moving toward improving operating margins to maintain profitability and portfolio management," said Tim Anschutz, vice president of Marketing for GMD. "This interface between our document engine and PredatorAnalyzer will help ensure that GMD customers are producing documents only on the loans that meet each lender's individual standards, and will identify individual non-compliant loans in the pipeline prior to closing. This failsafe compliance review means lenders will no longer need to rely on a closer's interpretation of a loan's risk, leading to a pipeline of compliant - and therefore more profitable - loans."

The strategic alliance between GMD and ComplianceEase will directly impact GMD's Next Generation Input System?? (NGIS??) and Transaction Management System?? (TMS??) offerings. TMS automates all document production, management functions and workflow tasks into one centralized and paperless value chain portal, providing all participants in a loan transaction with one web portal for total collaborative knowledge and real-time participation in all loan activities. NGIS is a web-based portal through which loan officers, brokers and correspondents can access GMD's dynamic forms engine anywhere at anytime and includes features that check for accuracy prior to document ordering, helping to ensure that all information, including pricing, is correct.

"Document providers are taking a closer look at incremental compliance tools because lenders have a renewed focus on loan quality," said David Girling, executive vice president of ComplianceEase. "Guardian Mortgage Documents is once again leading the industry by proactively identifying solutions that help lenders and investors protect their assets. This integration between our compliance system and GMD's document engine will empower lenders with stringent incremental risk management processes that virtually guarantee compliance, while also allowing lenders to leverage our PA AssureCert?? product for comprehensive loan-level insured protection up to the conforming loan limit."

"In today's ever-changing regulatory environment, lenders are faced with new compliance challenges on a daily basis," continued Girling, "Guardian Mortgage Documents recognizes this challenge and has partnered its core competency of document production and delivery with ours of risk management in order to expand its best-of-class offering to lenders."
