MBA NewsLink: What are some key trends your company is tracking?

Sagent: We’ve identified five key principles that any platform must address in order to be relevant in the future of mortgage servicing. This technology must provide a consumer experience that enables the bank-on-your-phone access they expect while delivering payment, escrow, and equity insights in real time with on-demand access to human experts when needed.

That same tech must also provide an intuitive interface for front-line teams that reduces training time and eliminates ancillary applications to ultimately lower servicing operational costs. And it must do all of this while offering configurability to achieve day-1 compliance with investor rules, agency policies, and all other regulatory considerations.

To achieve this, our platforms are designed as an open ecosystem that is cloud native and extensible via open APIs, capable of handling the end-to-end servicing life cycle — from loan boarding to disposition for performing and non-performing loans — while providing real-time access to loan-level data that allows investors increasing flexibility to manage risks.

MBA NewsLink: Why did your company join the Mortgage Bankers Association?

Sagent: We joined the Mortgage Bankers Association to deepen our relationships within the industry. Given the variety of continuing education tools and opportunities through training sessions, webinars, onsite events, and more, MBA is an organization for Sagent that keeps us relevant in our ever-changing landscape. We find all of their networking and learning opportunities extremely helpful as our team continues building and executing on the future of servicing for the industry at large.
