RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 300 additional mortgage lender customer accounts of Genworth U.S. Mortgage Insurance (USMI), a unit of Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW), now have the ability to process loans faster and receive mortgage insurance commitments electronically with the recent completion of integrated electronic interfaces with Ellie Mae's Encompass360® and Lender Processing Services' (LPS) PCLender® loan origination systems (LOS).
The integrations with these leading LOS providers allow mortgage lenders to get direct access – at the push of a button – to Genworth USMI rate quotes and ordering of commitments to grant mortgage insurance, without leaving their internal loan origination system.
