—Gateway speeds up digital transformation by providing a single
platform for lenders and fintechs to access numerous First American data
sets and services—

First
American Mortgage Solutions, LLC
, a part of the First American
family of companies, today unveiled its Digital Gateway to help simplify
and accelerate mortgage lending. This interactive, modern platform
enables lenders and fintechs to achieve digital transformation more
quickly by levering First American's application programming interfaces
(APIs) for data and services.

"We're providing a virtual key to unlock First American's universe of
data assets and services in their raw form to help lenders deliver a
better, modern online mortgage experience," said Kevin Wall, president
of First American Mortgage Solutions. "By reimagining the digital loan
process, it opens the door to innovation across the loan lifecycle."

Application developers from lending organizations, loan origination
system (LOS) providers, fintech companies and Point-of-Sale (POS)
solutions can obtain and configure data and services on demand, when and
how they need them. First American Mortgage Solutions' Digital Gateway
features flexible architecture and a single platform to access APIs,
which can be repurposed to create loan process efficiencies. Examples
include loan application pre-population, custom workflows and automated
data validations.

The initial First American solutions available as standalone services
include granular data for identity, occupancy, property, liens and
judgements, and ownership. Coming soon is transparency into major
milestones in the fulfillment of services, such as status updates on
appraisals and title and settlement, followed by compliance and vendor
management.

"We're dramatically reducing the time it takes to integrate with our
data and services," added Wall. "First American is the only data
provider to offer APIs spanning the entire mortgage spectrum, from
application to closing. By going directly to the source, lenders can
implement their digital mortgage strategies faster to gain competitive
advantage."
