UWM rolls out Insights tool for mortgage brokers

by Candyd Mendoza16 Jul 2020

United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM) has rolled out a new tool that gives mortgage brokers control over their data and research capability.

The lender launched Insights on Wednesday to enable clients to make data-based decisions and run reports instantaneously, helping them to manage their business and pipeline. The tool is built into the UWM loan origination system, EASE, which provides customizable reports that can be exported for system updates needed for compliance and audits.

UWM said Insights is intended to help independent mortgage brokers grow their businesses while providing the best loan package, service, and speed to borrowers. The launch followed the release of several new technologies developed by the company for the broker community, including EZ Findings, Conquest, and EASE Docs 2.0.

Last month, UWM unveiled a new version of its Conquest loan program. The new Conquest for VA loan program offers rates below 3% and is available on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages for both purchases and refinances.

"We're trying to get the lowest rates possible to the veterans," said Mat Ishbia, CEO and president of UWM. “It's taking care of the veterans and at the same time giving our brokers a competitive advantage over the retail channels they're competing with."
