FICS Launches Xcluso for Loan Originators

- New online portal brings origination tools to Internet savvy devices, including iPad and Android tablets -

DALLAS, Oct. 20, 2012 – Financial Industry Computer Systems, Inc. (FICS) is meeting the numerous demands of loan originators with its new online portal, Xcluso.  FICS’ Xcluso provides loan originators with an online tool that enables them to easily manage and track prospects, run preliminary credit reports, prequalify borrowers, and export application information directly into FICS’ loan origination software (LOS), Loan Producer.

Accessible by not only standard laptops, but via iPad and Android-based tablets, Xcluso makes it simple to manage prospects outside of the office, sync borrower information with Loan Producer, and stay one step ahead in today’s demanding business environment.  The enhanced user interface provides users with an organized and intuitive workflow that supports credit checks, entry of initial application data and can create key borrower communications, such as “Adverse Action” letters.

“The desktop has taken the personal connection out of sales,” said Susan Graham, president and COO of FICS.  “Xcluso makes it easier for loan originators to build stronger relationships and simplify the loan application process by placing the necessary tools at their fingertips, literally, through a tablet which can easily be transported from location to location, and borrower to borrower.”

Connecting the key aspects of the loan originator’s business, Xcluso communicates directly with FICS’ LOS, Loan Producer, eliminating the need to manually export or re-enter loan application data once the application is completed.  The link between both systems enables seamless communication among loan processing staff, the loan originator, and the borrower.

“Xcluso gives loan originators a new tool to efficiently perform their job within one convenient portal,” Graham said.  “Wherever, whenever, and however they do business, Xcluso allows them to effectively manage their pipeline to achieve the maximum number of loan closings.”
