TORONTO, Aug. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Davis + Henderson Corporation (TSX:DH) announced today that ATB Financial, the largest Alberta-based financial institution, has selected D+H's full suite of mortgage technology solutions to help it serve its more than 635,000 customers. Under the terms of the agreement, ATB will use D+H Expert to accept mortgage applications through its broker, agency and mobile channels, D+H Express for its mortgage underwriting activities and D+H Exchange for secure and flexible document management.

"ATB is 75 years old this year, and while banking technology of today would be unimaginable to the folks back then, one thing hasn't changed -- our drive to deliver the highest value to our customer," said Rob Bennett, ATB Financial's Executive Vice President of retail financial services. "We reviewed what was available in the market and came to the strong conclusion that D+H's suite of integrated mortgage technology solutions is the best choice for ATB. D+H has designed their solutions with our salespeople and customers in mind, enabling ATB to provide our customers with the very best service and to fulfill our ambition to become Albertans' first choice for the financial services and advice that matter most to them."

"We are very pleased to welcome ATB Financial to the growing list of customers who have chosen D+H's industry-leading products, services and innovative technology to help them meet the mortgage needs of their customers," said Serge Rivest, D+H's Executive Vice President and head of its Canadian mortgage technology business. "ATB's selection of D+H to help them grow their lending business reinforces our own goal of becoming the leading trusted North American provider of financial technology solutions that help clients grow, compete, and optimize their operations."

D+H is a North American market leader in mortgage technology, delivering a range of solutions for mortgage origination and underwriting. D+H solutions offer 24/7 access to ensure that transactions can be processed in real-time and provide for broker/lender collaboration by automatically transferring mortgage origination requests into underwriting systems.

"D+H Expert, D+H Express and D+H Exchange allow originators to process mortgages more efficiently by providing a simplified processing solution for their sales force, improved responsiveness through real-time updates to statuses and conditions, and better workflow management," said Mr. Rivest. "By choosing D+H's innovative technology, ATB has enabled all of their mortgage channels with one, integrated solution that will streamline their operations and enhance the customer experience."
