Know Before You Owe 2 Rule Enhancements: Highlights from our

workflow for disclosing to Non-Borrowing Owners and support for
tolerance cures using Principal Reduction. This update ensures that
lenders stay fully compliant with the CFPB's KBYO borrower disclosure
guidelines that are mandatory starting October, 2018.

Customizable TPO Workflow: To help wholesale lenders and
correspondent investors provide their third party originators with an
improved, streamlined user experience that enables them to process loans
faster, Ellie Mae has made updates to Encompass TPO Connect™ that enable
users to fully customize TPO website workflows, loan pipeline and
reporting views, and notifications for each channel they support.

New Correspondent Investor Channels: To improve turn time for
lenders and offer easier purchase decisions for investors, Ellie Mae's
Encompass Investor Connect™ offers streamlined closed loan delivery
through integrations with Caliber Home Loans, Flagstar Bank, Pacific
Union Financial and Wells Fargo. More integrations will be announced in
the coming weeks.

Webhooks API: A new change event type has been added to the
Webhooks API. The change event type allows users to subscribe to
attribute level changes on the loan file. For example, users can
automatically receive notification of changes in borrower information,
loan milestones, loan assignment, etc. This enables lenders to automate
and increase the speed of loan processing while reducing human

Product and Pricing: Ellie Mae is now offering Virtual Programs
