New MeridianLink Mortgage Access Point-of-Sale Solution Provides Lenders With a Seamless Digital Mortgage Application Experience

New MeridianLink Mortgage Access Point-of-Sale Solution

MeridianLink, Inc., a leading provider of modern software platforms for financial institutions and consumer reporting agencies, today announced its new point-of-sale (POS) solution for MeridianLink® Mortgage as part of the MeridianLink® One platform. MeridianLink® Mortgage Access meets borrowers’ demands for a more frictionless digital lending and account opening experience.

The highly configurable POS solution for mortgage origination looks to assist financial institutions to slash their application and approval times for consumers. Additionally, the product further strengthens MeridianLink’s innovative SaaS-based mortgage loan origination system by seeking to enhance the borrower’s experience and significantly increase efficiencies.

“In today’s economy, borrowers expect to be engaged in their financial experience, whether it’s checking their account balance, transferring money, or originating a mortgage,” said JP Kelly, SVP of Mortgage at MeridianLink. “Mortgage Access functions to make it easy for borrowers to buy or refinance their loans, reduce the friction in the mortgage experience, and decrease turnaround times. In doing so, these efforts will create a smoother process for consumers.”

The Mortgage Access launch comes at a time when American consumers expect an increased level of support from their financial institutions. A recent study conducted by MeridianLink discovered that one third of Americans (31%) feel less confident in their ability to afford a home compared to five years ago, and 41% of respondents believed their financial institution did not provide them with sufficient mortgage lending support.

The launch of Mortgage Access adds to MeridianLink Mortgage, the Company’s mortgage loan origination system (LOS) with a natively built product and pricing engine and automated underwriting. Other features of the LOS include the capability for financial institutions to customize user interfaces and automate workflows, manage electronic document packages, and access hundreds of partner integrations. The Mortgage Access product completes MeridianLink’s mortgage lending platform, delivering an end-to-end digital mortgage experience.

Mortgage Access is the latest offering in a series of investments MeridianLink has made to further grow and improve its product offerings related to mortgage lending. In late 2022, MeridianLink acquired OpenClose™, an award-winning provider of residential mortgage software, to offer omnichannel mortgage solutions and leading POS capabilities that improve efficiency while reducing costs and time to close. In March 2023, both MeridianLink and OpenClose received a HousingWire Tech100 Mortgage Award in recognition of their best-in-class mortgage lending products.

Ingenico partners with Cybersource to enable secured unified commerce solution

Ingenico | January 25, 2024

Ingenico, a global leader in payment acceptance and services, has announced a strategic partnership with Cybersource, Visa's agnostic global payment and fraud management platform. The partnership will create a global unified commerce solution for use in Asia Pacific first, followed by other regions. The partnership integrates the AXIUM application developed by Ingenico on the Cybersource open payment platform. This collaboration delivers an efficient, ready-to-use commerce solution to authorize in-store card transaction process across geographies, all on one platform. AXIUM, Ingenico's versatile payment acceptance solution, features advanced smart Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals powered by Android, along with a suite of business applications. It provides robust security, and comprehensive customer support. Its application, built on Cybersource's platform is portable across different AXIUM devices, making it easier to scale without going through lengthy certification processes for each new device. Cybersource is part of Visa Acceptance Solutions, which allows on-demand pre-integrated global scale services on an open acceptance platform. This connectivity hub provides acquirers, Independent Service Providers (ISVs), and merchants access to the building blocks they need to create seamless commerce experiences that can scale their businesses, keep their customers happy, and make them future-ready. The synergy between Ingenico and Cybersource aims to reduce costs and complexities of technical integrations, increase speed to market, and provide omni-channel capabilities that align with the evolving needs of both businesses and consumers in the in-store commerce space. Today, acquirers spend most of their resources maintaining an in-house platform that processes transaction authorization flow and POS device certification. The unified commerce solution eliminates the need for a separate platform which enables acquirers to focus on card clearance and settlement with real-time transaction visibility and data analytics. It also allows them to expand to new merchant segments by leveraging both partners' ecosystems and investing in capabilities that will drive growth in the future. For ISVs providing value-added services, the API-driven capability of this unified commerce platform provides them the ease of integrating payment solutions into their business applications quickly. They can also leverage a list of acquirers already integrated with the platform, extending scalability of their business across different geographies. For merchants, the platform provides a seamless solution across different markets without the need to rebuild different applications for each acquirer in every market. Merchants could also leverage Ingenico's managed solutions that have a strong regional presence and partnerships globally. Nigel Lee, Chief Customer Officer of Ingenico, said, "We are thrilled to partner with Visa to forge a path towards a more integrated and complete payment ecosystem. Combining the global reach of Visa and Ingenico and using the Ingenico Android technology stack, will accelerate innovation and reduce complexity. We believe together we can reduce time to market for customers and allow our clients and partners to realize the benefits of a truly unified omnichannel solution. This is a significant step in our vision to move commerce forward by harnessing the collective strengths of our combined technologies and networks." Dan Parsons, Head of Cybersource, Asia Pacific, said: "As an open payments platform with global reach, we have created a new era of partnership and collaboration that will foster a whole new wave of innovation. Our strategic partnership with Ingenico will enable us to provide pre-integrated and innovative payment solutions to our clients and partners. This will empower businesses to deliver a unified commerce experience to meet evolving consumer expectations while enabling them to scale their business more efficiently."

Elo, a global leader in point-of-sale technology, is excited to unveil Elo Pay and the accompanying Elo Pay 7" Integrated Payment POS Terminal. Designed for merchants of all sizes, the new system delivers fast, secure, scalable payment services, allowing it to grow as your business expands. Elo Pay is a comprehensive payment service that supports merchants in accepting transactions with confidence. With features including end-to-end encryption, secure tokenization, robust Terminal Management Services (TMS), and Remote Key Injection (RKI), the Elo Pay platform is compatible with multiple payment providers to provide maximum security while processing payments. The Elo Pay system has been designed for all types of businesses. The solution provides merchants with four options to begin processing payments. First, Elo Pay Link enables merchants to utilize APIs to integrate their software with Elo's payment hardware. Elo Pay Link+ takes this further, providing a semi-integrated solution that supports acquisition between merchants and their chosen card networks such as Visa and Mastercard. Elo Pay TMS supports the management and monitoring of Elo payment devices, while Elo Pay RKI allows for the encryption keys to be securely injected into payment terminals remotely. Strengthening the Elo Pay system is the new Elo Pay 7" Integrated Payment POS Terminal. The fully integrated and compact, enterprise-grade terminal is complete with a 7-inch touch display, flexible Android 12 OS, and Qualcomm SD660 processor. Embracing Elo's modular approach, the terminal can be deployed in multiple ways, from a stand-alone payment terminal to the computer fully powering an entire point-of-sale system. The highly versatile terminal can be docked to an optional printer stand, placed remotely on a counter, or fully integrated into the Elo Z70 stand to form a complete system with the 7" screen facing the customer and a standard Elo monitor facing employees. The Elo Pay 7" can accept all forms of card payment, including physical cards, contactless mobile phone payments, and merchant gift cards, depending on the payment processor and acquiror selected by the merchant. The Elo Pay 7" integrated POS system has been designed to simplify the payment process, improve user experience, and maintain payment security. Merchants will be able to deploy and manage their entire network of Elo Pay devices, thanks to EloView. The award-winning EloView allows users to deploy content and provision Elo Android-based devices in seconds, creating a seamless experience that will transform operations. Further peace of mind comes from Elo EssentialEdge, which ensures businesses can continue to deliver the convenience and familiarity of Android interfaces through monthly security updates, and Elo Care, which provides advance unit replacement, accidental damage protection, and extended warranty. The Elo Pay 7" POS solution will be on display later this month when Elo heads to the National Retail Federation Expo 2024. The conference will see thousands of brands come together for three days of learning, collaboration, and discovery. Visitors will be able to find Elo at booth #5803.

It is also fully scalable, allowing merchants to easily increase their units as their operations grow." Elo Pay Link is available today.
