ComplianceEase, Guardian Mortgage Documents, Expand Partnership to Provide Real-Time One-Touch Automated Compliance, Doc Services to Large Investors
Seamless Interface Offers Users Ability to Perform Effective Real-time, Loan-level Audits that Verify Compliance with State Consumer Lending Regulations, High-cost/Anti-predatory Lending Laws and Other Federal Compliance Requirements

SAN FRANCISCO - Nov. 27, 2007 - In a time when mortgage lenders are looking at every aspect of their business for possible improvements and cost savings, ComplianceEase® and Guardian Mortgage Documents' (GMD) have expanded their three-year strategic alliance to offer more robust risk management tools for large investors, which will enhance compliance services for correspondent and broker quality control procedures.

ComplianceEase, a leading provider of mortgage industry automated compliance and risk management solutions, and GMD, a leading provider of scalable document preparation, have jointly developed a unique seamless interface solution for one of the top five mortgage investors in the United States. The new solution combines compliance and document production into a "one touch," web-based workflow system, which is available to correspondents and brokers from the investor's Web portal.

The system allows correspondents and brokers to perform effective real-time, loan-level compliance audits that verify adherence to the investors' guidelines and compliance. The new system is unique in that it increases investor loan quality by generating closing documents only when all defined compliance thresholds have been met.

"This new interface delivers the deepest, most integrated compliance solution we've seen in the industry for helping correspondents and brokers at the investor level," said John Vong, president of ComplianceEase. "The investor maintains total upfront control by defining all of the compliance rules that apply to their seller network."

The new system is an extension of an existing interface from the investor's Web site that enables users, once the loan is locked, to draw documents from GMD's Web-based system. All data automatically passes via seamless interface between GMD and ComplianceEase's ComplianceAnalyzer®. Consequently, each document package is subject to a ComplianceAnalyzer audit. If the document data fails the tests for compliance, the user will not receive documents - but will receive a detailed ComplianceAnalyzer report, which displays incidents of non-compliance in an easy-to-read summary format, which also includes a detailed narrative findings report. In this case, correspondents use the report to correct or update their file and resubmit through GMD for documents. Document requests that pass the ComplianceAnalyzer audit are also accompanied by a full set of reports. "In addition to ComplianceAnalyzer, GMD can lock-down any number of data fields it receives from the investor to help further ensure quality control," said Tim Anschutz, vice president of marketing at GMD. "Consequently, users must change these fields in the investor's system of record and redraw documents - the investor always knows what they are buying."

"Lenders are recognizing the value of our solution even more during these uncertain times in the mortgage industry," added Vong. "This is a tremendous tool to prevent repurchase and buy backs, which are really what lenders are concerned about, in prime and subprime loans. Our solution, working seamlessly with Guardian's technology, provides lenders with the highest level of marketability for their loans, which increases liquidity for faster turn times on funding. This one-touch, failsafe compliance review at the investor level means they will no longer need to rely on a closer's interpretation of a loan's risk and it will lead to a pipeline of compliant - and therefore more profitable - loans."
