Blend has announced the integration of Avantus, a provider of mortgage credit reports, services, and technology, into its digital lending platform.
Through the integration, mortgage borrowers within Blend’s platform will be able to access customized Avantus Tri-Merge credit reports.
"We're pleased to add Avantus to our platform, expanding options for lenders pulling credit within Blend, and further streamlining and optimizing the consumer's mortgage experience," said Brian Martin, head of business development at Blend. "Partnering with Avantus will support our mission to continue to deliver a best-in-class lending experience for consumers and lenders."
Blend has recently launched one-tap pre-approval technology, a new offering that streamlines the application process for lenders and homebuyers.
"In today's competitive lending environment, if your technology isn't working in unison to create a seamless user experience, you're losing time and losing loans," Avantus President Louis Capobianco said. "Blend has helped many Avantus clients create a more streamlined end-to-end lending solution, with impressive results. We're excited to be part of the Blend platform and look forward to working on our shared goal of helping lenders close more loans."
