Stearns OrijinTM: A Loan Origination System and Services to Better Your Loan Process
Stearns has experienced explosive growth over the past 3 years which has lead us into a new and improved loan origination system. This new state of the art loan origination system has a seamless integration between point of sale to fulfillment.
The main key features are:
- Simplified loan entry
- Workflow capabilities
- Increased integration with service providers, including credit, appraisal, title, mortgage insurance, etc.
- Improved automation of activities and tasks
- Consumer portal, allowing our borrowers to check their loan status, upload documents, and review loan level information
Our new release includes a new eSign capability. This functionality enables the borrower to login to a Secure Portal and electronically sign their disclosures. This eliminates the need for the Borrower to print, sign and mail the documents. Documents enabled for eSign include the Initial Disclosure, GFE Redisclosure, and TILA Redisclosure. The electronically eSigned documents are posted to the Stearns OrijinTM system and available in the Global Document Repository along with the original unsigned package. The borrower must consent to receiving electronic delivery and e-sign within 48 hours of receipt.
Stearns Orijin™ Mobile is the mobile version of the Stearns Orijin™ web application. This technology allows Mortgage Loan Originators and Account Executives “on the go”, real-time access via smart phone to:
- Loan level notifications, and
- Company announcements
