SharperLending has announced a collaboration with Blend to deliver verified mortgage data that speeds up origination and processing for lenders.

The mortgage technology provider has integrated its XpertOnline mortgage credit reporting system with Blend’s digital lending platform.

“As we continue to help lenders and financial institutions expand their capabilities and adapt to meet changing customer needs, this partnership with SharperLending gives loan officers access to their credit technology solutions and further streamlines the lending landscape,” said Brian Martin, head of business development at Blend.

Through the integration, Blend’s lender and bank customers can request, receive and store consumer credit data for underwriting purposes and consumer credit scores from the credit reporting agencies that use XpertOnline.

The partnership also provides access to data from several credit reporting agencies and service providers on Blend’s platform. Additionally, the integration allows loan officers to order account supplements, request public record data, provide credit disclosures, and more – all from within their LOS.

“There is real value in decreasing the number of vendor systems lenders have to log in to,” said David Chiappe, president of SharperLending. “The partnership brings our valued credit reporting agency clients more opportunities to deliver their data and empowers Blend’s customers with dozens of credit providers through a single integration. Our partnership will provide both Blend and SharperLending with a more effective means of supporting our mutual client base.”
