OpenClose Adds AFR’s Flood Services to its LOS via Seamless Interface


Dec. 13, 2017OpenClose®, a multi-channel loan origination system (LOS) and mortgage software solutions provider, announced that it partnered with AFR Services (AFR) to enable customers to access the company’s complete suite of flood services. Using the interface makes it quick and easy to order AFR’s various flood services directly from within OpenClose’s LenderAssist™ LOS.


AFR is a nationwide full-service risk management company serving mortgage lenders, insurance agencies as well as consumers. The company has expertise in hazard and flood insurance solutions – tracking and notification systems, lender placed insurance, commercial flood insurance, residential flood insurance, and flood zone determination services. AFR is also a Lloyd’s cover holder for private flood insurance.


By way of this seamless integration, all data needed to obtain flood certificates is auto populated from AFR into LenderAssist. This eliminates the need to leave the application, place orders on AFR’s website and then re-key information back into the loan file. As a result, time is saved, errors are reduced, accuracy is enhanced and the overall ordering process becomes more efficient.


“AFR has a strong reputation for accuracy and personal service so we are pleased that our partnership will make the process of ordering their flood services simple and easy for our customers,” commented JP Kelly, president of OpenClose. “Our interface with them keeps the details, documentation and flood certificate completely within LenderAssist, centralizing moving parts and ensuring compliance.”


LenderAssist is an end-to-end LOS that is completely web-based and automates all business channels and workflows from a single lending automation platform. System implementations are configured to flex with lenders’ unique business process, which is managed by OpenClose along with post implementation maintenance and ongoing customer support.
