DALLAS (3/11/10)--CU Members Mortgage partnered with Lender Processing Services to implement the next generation of online mortgage lending technology, Empower, beginning in the second quarter. The new platform includes a more modern, user-friendly online application, improved tools and helpful calculators for members. The platform includes a side-by-side loan comparison to help members understand their loan options. It also provides delivery of rate alerts and loan status updates, and features electronic upload and distribution of documents. Credit union members will still have the 24/7 loan application ability that will pull credit information and provide an instant loan decision in minutes. CU Members Mortgage will begin training their credit union partners on the new system in April and will begin official roll-out in May. The target completion for the roll-out of all the new sites is May 15, said Wallace Jones, CU Members Mortgage national training director.
