Arch MI Launches First Complete MI Order Cycle on OpenClose LOS

Integration streamlines processing by enabling users to get quotes, place orders and receive the MI certificate without leaving the LOS


GREENSBORO, N.C. – April 8, 2019 – Arch Mortgage Insurance Company (“Arch MI”), a leading provider of private mortgage insurance (MI) and a wholly owned subsidiary of Arch Capital Group Ltd., and OpenClose®, an industry-leading multi-channel loan origination system (LOS) and digital mortgage fintech provider, have launched a new integration that enables their customers to complete an MI order and receive the MI certificate without leaving the LOS — speeding processing and lowering costs for mortgage lenders.

Arch MI’s new MI order functionality supports both delegated and non-delegated mortgage insurance orders initiated from within the OpenClose LenderAssist™ LOS. The new integration adds a streamlined workflow-driven process for users to get an Arch MI quote, place an MI order and receive the MI certificate and pricing data, all within the LOS.

The new integration allows OpenClose LenderAssist users to view rate comparisons and lock in Arch MI RateStar® pricing. Now celebrating 10 years as the industry’s leading risk-based MI pricing solution, RateStarSM evaluates a wide variety of loan characteristics to provide the most tailored, complete and precise MI rate. Arch MI was the first MI company to provide LenderAssist users access to live MI pricing together with side-by-side comparisons for multiple Arch MI products and rates — capabilities that continue to be available within the updated system.

“The new, enhanced integration with OpenClose’s LOS platform brings the entire MI function full circle, delivering increased efficiencies for pricing, ordering and producing certificates,” said Carl Tyree, EVP and Chief Sales Officer at Arch MI. “One of our goals at Arch MI is to make our industry-leading products available wherever lenders want to do business with us, and we are proud to be the first MI to offer a fully integrated set of services on the OpenClose platform.”

“We’ve enjoyed a tremendous relationship with Arch MI and are pleased to strengthen our integration to deliver more value to our mutual customers,” stated Vince Furey, CRO at OpenClose. “Enhancing our integration with Arch MI is of particular importance as it establishes automated workflow that speeds processing time and helps reduce the cost to manufacture loans.”
