This online customer portal connects everyone involved in the processing of a loan, from the originator's staff to the borrower and third parties such as the title and appraisal companies. Originators can interact directly with the wholesale underwriter in the Thread to streamline and speed communication. Threads create a transparent process where everyone can see all relevant documents, without compromising security.DocVelocity Desktop ?
