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.
MeridianLink® powers digital lending and account opening for financial institutions and provides data verification solutions for consumer reporting agencies. MeridianLink’s scalable, cloud-based platforms help customers build deeper relationships with consumers through data-driven, personalized experiences across the entire lending life cycle.
MeridianLink enables customers to accelerate revenue growth, reduce risk, and exceed consumer expectations through seamless digital experiences. Its partner marketplace supports hundreds of integrations for tailored innovation. For more than 20 years, MeridianLink has prioritized the democratization of lending for consumers, businesses, and communities.

Paymentus Holdings Inc. today announced a new integration with MRI Software, a leading provider of real estate software solutions, to expand the utility billing and payment capabilities available to MRI clients. The partnership enables renters to receive, manage, and pay bills from national, regional, and local utility providers currently connected to the Paymentus Instant Payment Network®, or IPN, and features a host of expanded payment options. The Paymentus integration with MRI Property Management X is available for clients using the MRI LivingTM suite of residential property management tools.
In the recent Voice of the Resident Report commissioned by MRI, most respondents – which included more than 2,000 U.S. renters across a mix of locations and rental categories – preferred more digital payment options to pay their bills. Paymentus supports more payment methods and payment channels than any other billing and payment platform, including online, mobile, IVR, text, kiosk, point of sale, and agent-assisted payments, as well as popular and flexible payment options such as Venmo, PayPal, Apple Pay, credit, debit, ACH, digitized cash, crypto, and more, to drive consumer action, adoption, and satisfaction.
“We understand consumer bill-pay dynamics better than any other payments solution provider,” said Dushyant Sharma, Founder and CEO of Paymentus. “When we expand payment optionality and remove friction from the process, bills get paid on-time and in-full. For property managers, our integration with MRI Property Management X will connect tenants directly to their utility providers meaning fewer payments for multifamily property managers to manage and fewer delinquencies and service shut-offs to deal with.”
“Today’s renters value the flexibility that comes with digital payment options,” said Sean Slack, Vice President of Partner Connect at MRI Software. “As an MRI partner, Paymentus will enable our clients to exceed expectations for multifamily, affordable and student housing renters by offering more ways to pay for utility services, resulting in a more satisfied, engaged community.”
Paymentus is a leading provider of cloud-based bill payment technology and solutions for more than 1,900 billers and financial institutions across North America. The company was named the industry’s best-in-class provider of EBPP solutions by Aite-Novarica in February 2022. The Paymentus omni-channel platform provides consumers with easy-to-use, flexible, and secure electronic bill payment experiences through their preferred payment channel and type. Paymentus’ proprietary Instant Payment Network®, or IPN, connects IPN partners’ platforms and tens of thousands of billers to Paymentus’ integrated billing, payment, and reconciliation capabilities.
