National MI Integrated with Blue Sage

Lenders can now order National MI rate quotes and mortgage insurance directly from within the Blue Sage Digital Lending Platform

EMERYVILLE, CA and ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ–-June 7, 2019 – National Mortgage Insurance Corporation (National MI), a subsidiary of NMI Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NMIH), is now integrated with the Blue Sage Digital Lending Platform, a browser-based, end-to-end mortgage platform built in the cloud. The integration enables lenders to obtain immediate and accurate National MI rate quotes and order delegated mortgage insurance without ever leaving Blue Sage.

The integration brings National MI’s innovative, real-time, risk-based mortgage insurance pricing to Blue Sage, a comprehensive platform that handles all mortgage channels—retail, wholesale, correspondent, and consumer direct. The integration leverages Blue Sage’s unique application programming interfaces (APIs), which enable seamless interoperability between third-party technology providers. A truly end-to-end system, Blue Sage also tracks and updates data changes throughout the loan file in real time, so if new data requires mortgage insurance to be reordered or repriced, it happens automatically.

“National MI is very pleased to join forces with Blue Sage,” said Mike Dirrane, chief sales officer and senior managing director with National MI.  “Lenders can now see National MI’s rate, and choose the quote that is best for them. Having access to our Rate GPS risk-based pricing through the Blue Sage platform will save lenders time and streamline the origination process.”

“National MI’s products and groundbreaking risk-based pricing technology make them a perfect partner for us,” said Joe Langner, CEO of Blue Sage. “One of the many distinctive aspects to this direct, system-to-system integration is that Blue Sage automatically alerts users if changes in the loan file require mortgage insurance to be reordered or repriced. This type of rules-based process automation is unique among mortgage platforms because only Blue Sage was built with today’s modern technology
