Vantage Production, LLC has partnered with Equifax to provide Equifax’s consumer tri-merge credit data into its Vantage Integrated Production platform.

Vantage says that the integration of Equifax’s Credit Hi-Lite program into its VIP platform will enable mortgage loan originators to optimize their sales workflow, provide borrowers with immediate eligibility decisions, and present loan options in an easy-to-understand manner.

“We are very pleased to enter into a relationship with Equifax for several reasons,” said Paul Zoukis, CEO of Vantage Production. “Equifax is among the premier information solution providers in financial services, and passing their stringent security risk assessment process further validates the safety and integrity of our services. Most importantly, Credit Hi-Lite allows our VIP platform clients to substantially improve their efficiency and profitability.”

Vantage says that by adding Equifax’s data to its VIP platform, mortgage loan originators can help borrowers make the best decisions for their personal financial needs. “Instant access to credit information allows lenders to approve applicants faster, reduce the risk of application fraud, decrease time-consuming manual verifications, and deliver a better experience for consumers,” the company says.

“Teaming up with Vantage Production will give the lenders we work with an even deeper, more insightful view into a consumer’s financial situation,” said Craig Crabtree, SVP of mortgage services, Equifax. “By leveraging their platform and our robust credit information, we can empower lenders to confidently offer borrowers the terms that best suit their needs for a mortgage.”
