EXOS and Blend in New Partnership

Pittsburgh-based EXOS Technologies (EXOS), a ServiceLink company, has partnered with Blend to further extend and enhance the consumer digital mortgage experience. The company said in a statement that the partnership was part of EXOS's mission to offer a complete consumer digital experience.

Through the collaboration, EXOS and Blend will deliver exact real-time appraisal scheduling functionality for lender clients using EXOS Appraisal, a core offering from the EXOS platform. This integration enables consumers seeking a new mortgage to seamlessly schedule appraisal appointments by accessing live calendars of tens of thousands of licensed appraisers in all 50 states.  Borrowers will be able to digitally select the exact date and time of their preferred appointment and receive instant confirmation plus a photo of their appraiser and the make and model of their vehicle. By automating appraisal orders and empowering the homebuyer to self-serve, lenders can deliver on faster closings, EXOS said.

"This is an exciting partnership as EXOS will help extend the level of digital connectivity for lenders utilizing Blend's platform," said Kiran Vattem, EVP, Chief Digital and Technology Officer at EXOS Technologies. "EXOS helps address critical consumer touchpoints overlooked by most lenders."

The EXOS Appraisal platform eliminates the back and forth that often slows down the appraisal process, therefore giving lenders the ability to close loans faster, improve pipeline management and boost consumer loyalty and satisfaction.

"Blend is committed to streamlining the mortgage workflow, and EXOS adds yet another dimension when it comes to driving efficiency and automation in the appraisal process," said Brian Martin, head of Business Development at Blend. "Partnering with EXOS provides the opportunity to offer a more complete digital mortgage experience and help our customers interact with borrowers on a deeper level."
