Aspire Financial announced it will be using Alight’s mortgage lending platform, which will in turn help the company forecast where its business is headed.

Alight is a provider of industry-specific real-time financial optimization applications, which includes the mortgage lending platform.

This move from Aspire harnesses Alight’s cloud-based technology. The platform will integrate into a lender’s general ledger, loan origination systems and capital market providers to create real-time financial forecasts and scenarios.

“We see Alight as the answer to our financial reporting needs as it integrates all our existing systems to give us a real-time forecasting solution,” said Jason Spooner, chief operating officer of Aspire Financial. “Thanks to Alight, we will have insight into all aspects of our company, allowing us to make educated decisions surrounding expenses, branch acquisitions and pull through margins.”

Aspire isn’t the only company that’s started to use Alight’s Mortgage Lending platform.

Both Guardian Mortgage Company and Village Mortgage announced earlier this year that they selected Alight Mortgage Lending.
