MBA NewsLink: Please provide a brief description of your company
Based in Wilmington, N.C., nCino is a worldwide leader in cloud banking whose SaaS solutions are transforming the operations of more than 1,800 financial institutions globally. nCino’s Mortgage Suite increases lenders’ profitability by automating loan processing and closing, delivering modern customer convenience, surfacing data insights and simplifying incentive compensation management.

The nCino Mortgage Suite consists of three products that unite the people, systems and stages of the mortgage process to deliver a seamless, end-to-end solution for IMBs, banks and credit unions:

Mortgage is a mobile-native digital mortgage solution that enables lenders to efficiently originate, process, and close loans from anywhere. It goes beyond typical point-of-sale (POS) capabilities to ensure customers enjoy a seamless experience at every step in their homeownership journey, from initial contact to application/approval to the final closing — all with a single log-in. With dedicated title collaboration tools and support for multiple closing scenarios, nCino Mortgage also offers a modern digital closing experience, improving lenders’ speed, security, liquidity, and savings.

Incentive Compensation gives lenders one place to manage, audit, analyze, and report on all their loan compensation data, transactions, and communications. It saves lenders countless hours each payroll period by replacing manual incentive compensation paperwork and processes with accuracy, transparency, and flexibility.

Mortgage Analytics empowers lenders to deploy a unified data strategy with turnkey mortgage insights and analytics that increase productivity and efficiency through intuitive dashboards, instant pipeline and performance data views, loan-level drill-downs, scorecards, and more.

The entire Mortgage Suite supports bidirectional integration to popular loan origination systems (LOS), eliminating the need to build a data warehouse or hire developers, business analysts, and solution architects. Learn more at
