First Lenders Data Inc. (FLDI), Austin, Texas, and Stewart Mortgage Information (SMI), Houston, have formed a strategic alliance. The alliance will provide mortgage lenders with SMI's flood, title, closing, recording and satisfaction services through FLDI's FirstClose[TM] vendor-management platform.
"This alliance offers lenders an expanded number of financial services that can help them stay competitive in the wake of the refinance boom," said Dennis Conway, SMI's national account manager. "Through cost savings and comprehensive vendor management, our participating lenders can use the services provided by FLDI to improve the way they do business and gain a competitive edge."
FLDI offers bundled services through alliance partners such as SMI to provide a cost-effective vendor-management solution for lenders to better manage the origination process and select the best technology to meet their own individual needs.
