Created to match lenders with mortgage brokers looking to find the best rates and loan products for borrowers in a volatile market, Marketplace 2.0 gives brokers the ability to pull in pricing from their existing lender relationships automatically and run pricing comparisons of participating Broker Marketplace lenders. Eliminating a lengthy signup process and a monthly fee, Marketplace now helps brokers instantly see all of their lenders and marketplace lenders inside a single location without logging into several different TPO portals.

“Marketplace 2.0 is a game changer for brokers and lenders. It helps wholesale lenders expand their audience and gain access to thousands of mortgage brokers quickly,” said Dawar Alimi, CEO of Lender Price.

“For brokers, we designed the platform to help them find the most competitive loan programs in this market and help them move away from using legacy technology that typically comes with a monthly fee. Our solution is 100% free to the wholesale broker community and it’s one less cost that a broker has to worry about right now.”

With Marketplace 2.0, mortgage brokers can now: 

Pull in pricing from their existing wholesale lender relationships without waiting
Quickly add comp and rate sheets and receive accurate pricing without a monthly fee moving forward
Invite borrowers to see tailored products and scenarios from inside the system
Create custom rate alerts and be alerted when new opportunities arise
Find and isolate specific non-QM, non-agency and home equity products
Get more control and freedom and run pricing from anywhere
Find loans that compete with all-cash offers and share with realtors
Discover products they were previously unaware of and might not know are available

Advantages for wholesale lenders participating in Marketplace 2.0 include: 

Ability to offer product and pricing to additional brokers outside of current network
Easy access for brokers to find their specific programs and conduct business with them
Detailed analytics on broker pricing behavior
Quick notifications on when brokers choose their products
Ability to showcase non-QM, non-agency and home equity products

Onboarding is now automated, extremely simple, and brokers are up and running in minutes. Brokers only need to upload their rate sheets once and the system automatically updates product and pricing moving forward. Users will be able to see accurate pricing without manual updates.

With rates on the rise, Marketplace 2.0 can help brokers keep costs under control, stay competitive in a challenging market and get wider access to additional products that they might not know exist. The solution also gives brokers access to non-QM, non-agency and home equity programs at no additional cost. Lenders can also gain access to thousands of wholesale brokers quickly and easily, helping them maintain volume during a challenging market.

KYield and Praxis form Strategic Alliance to Convert Oil & Gas Platforms for Offshore Aquaculture and Renewable Energy Production

RIO RANCHO, N.M. and HOUSTON, Texas, June 28, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — KYield, Inc. announced today a strategic alliance with Praxis Drilling and Completion, LLC, for the purpose of converting offshore oil and gas platforms to sustainable food and energy production.

Image Caption: KYield logo.

“KYield has performed deep dives in AI for most industries, including energy and offshore platforms following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill,” said Mark Montgomery, founder and CEO of KYield. “We’re pleased to form a strategic alliance with Praxis to apply our KOS as the AI OS for offshore platforms.”

The KOS is a data-centric AI OS with embedded governance, security, prevention, and automation. The modular system design is universal and can be applied at any scale, from the largest enterprise to small teams or industrial applications.

Praxis is an experienced offshore specialist based in Texas. The company is in discussions to convert existing platforms to aquaculture and low-carbon energy production. The alliance agreement provides limited exclusivity for the KOS to be used for offshore platform conversions, and extends a minority equity position to KYield in a new entity that will own and operate the platforms.

“We anticipate extensive use of automation for cost savings made possible with the KOS, and to aid in health, safety, environment, and quality,” said Robert Young, CEO of Praxis. “There are over 5,000 offshore platforms to be decommissioned. Our aim is to recycle platforms for social benefit in developing nations by producing sustainable food and energy.”

The initial focus for the alliance is to convert idle offshore platforms to other uses, including for off-shore fish farming and renewable energy such as green hydrogen. KYield will provide precision third-party analytics, monitoring, and reporting to blue and green bondholders, and for ESG certification.

About KYield:

FormFree announces support for new Freddie Mac Loan Product Advisor enhancement aimed at expanding sustainable homeownership for renters

ATHENS, Ga., June 30, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — FormFree® announced that mortgage lenders using AccountChek® verification of asset (VOA) reports in conjunction with a Freddie Mac Loan Product Advisor® (LPA℠) solution will soon benefit from an enhancement that takes loan applicants’ 12-month on-time rent payment history into consideration when assessing eligibility for qualified first-time homebuyers.

Image Caption: FormFree logo.

The enhancement, which is effective once announced in the Freddie Mac July Guide Bulletin, is designed to expand sustainable homeownership for the millions of Americans by taking their rent payment history into account when assessing eligibility. The expansion of rent payment history can increase the number of mortgage loan applicants who receive an Eligible/Accept recommendation in LPA.

“Freddie Mac is focused on offering value to our clients and improving the borrower experience as we continue to modernize the mortgage process,” said Kevin Kauffman, Freddie Mac Single-Family Vice President of Client and Partner Delivery. “FormFree has been a strong partner on this journey by helping lenders assess credit eligibility for qualified first-time homebuyers.”

LPA will automatically identify on-time rent payments — including those made via mobile apps like Venmo, Zelle and Paypal — within AccountChek VOA reports and take them into consideration when assessing eligibility for qualified first-time homebuyers. Only on-time rent payments will be considered; LPA will not assess late or missing rent payments.

“Freddie Mac’s move to have Loan Product Advisor consider rent payment history in its assessment is part of a much larger push for more equitable home financing practices,” said FormFree Chief Customer Officer Christy Moss. “People of color, who have disproportionately low homeownership rates and are overrepresented among credit invisible consumers will be most positively impacted by this enhancement to LPA.”

“FormFree takes great pride in helping borrowers communicate their ability to pay and equipping lenders with the tools to confidently and efficiently verify borrower credentials,” continued Moss. “We look forward to supporting Freddie Mac as it continues to deploy technology that improves access to sustainable credit for homebuyers.”

Lenders can leverage rent payment history assessment through LPA asset and income modeler (AIM) when they order AccountChek reports of any length, including 30-, 60-, 90- and 180-day reports. In supplying LPA with 12 months of rent payment history, AccountChek has established safeguards that ensure the collection of extended rent payment history does not expose lenders to non-rent transactions, such as large gift deposits, that occurred more than 90 days in the past.

“FormFree remains committed to developing and supporting solutions that correct the racial homeownership gap,” said FormFree Founder and CEO Brent Chandler. “Using FICO scores alone to evaluate creditworthiness excludes a large swath of minority homeowners who pay their rent on time and responsibly manage their finances without borrowing money from creditors. Direct source financial data is the key to understanding consumers’ true ability and FormFree applauds Freddie Mac’s efforts to help lenders finance homeownership more equitably.”

For more information, visit https://www.formfree.com/rent/.

About FormFree:

FormFree® is a market-leading fintech company whose revolutionary products AccountChek® and Passport® make for a more inclusive credit decisioning landscape by enabling lenders to understand people’s true ability to pay (ATP®). Our vision is to leverage source data and data-driven intelligence to usher in a new era of transparent, fair and liquid credit markets. To date, thousands of U.S. lenders and brokers have ordered millions of FormFree’s patented verification reports representing trillions of dollars in loan verifications. FormFree delights borrowers and lenders with a paperless experience, dramatically reduces origination timelines and offers automated analysis and standardized delivery to lenders and investors using a secure ReIssueKey®.

GridBright® completes Oracle Utilities Network Management System (NMS) implementation at Colquitt EMC, extending the reach of full-featured utility network management

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 29, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — State-of-the-art electric utility network management systems are no longer only possible in the realm of large utility organizations. The needed sophistication to manage the modern grid does not recognize any utility network as too small to pose operating challenges. But the cost of these systems can be too high for smaller utilities to absorb. GridBright, in its implementation of Oracle Utilities Network Management System at Colquitt, has changed the game for smaller but not less essential utility operations.

Image Caption: GridBright logo.

“In the past, many COOP utilities could not afford the cost of implementing a full feature NMS. We changed that by developing a template to implement NMS/OMS at smaller utilities cutting implementation costs significantly,” said Tom Servas, executive vice president at GridBright.

GridBright is a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

At Colquitt, GridBright implemented Oracle Network Management System over 12 months. The implementation spanned the project’s entire lifecycle from “March 2021” to “February 2022” and included the integration of outage map capabilities from DataCapable.

“From start to finish, the project was amazing and has dramatically increased our ability to manage not only outages, but the resources involved in restoring power to our members. Gridbright’s approach made an affordable deployment of Oracle Network Management System possible. Engaging GridBright was the right move and took the worry out of our migration. Everyone involved with our project brought a wealth of knowledge, quality, and commitment to meeting our goals,” said Jeffery Patterson, vice president, Information Technology at Colquitt EMC.

This advance in the viability of more cost-efficient NMS implementation is timely as the US Government begins the implementation of the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). In addition, there is a specific focus on technology enhancing grid flexibility and the cyber threats presented to rural and municipal utilities, specifically in that legislation.

“With Colquitt’s project as a blueprint, COOPs can now implement Oracle’s Network Management System at a price that works for them,” said Brad Williams, vice president of Industry Strategy at Oracle Energy and Water. “Now, COOPs can benefit from a full-featured solution that enables them to manage every piece for their operation – from distribution to customer-owned grid devices, to improve reliability and customer service even in the most extreme circumstances.”

With more than 30% of Americans being served by public power utilities or MUNIs, it is expected that utilities like Colquitt will require NMS offerings like Oracle’s Network Management System to support achieving the national energy goals of the IIJA. With GridBright’s approach, the cost is decreasing as a barrier to these utilities’ ability to implement network management systems that meet their challenges.

About GridBright®:

GridBright is a consulting firm specializing in secure grid systems integration.  We provide a comprehensive set of utility systems strategy consulting, business case development, procurement process support, and system implementation and integration services.  Our capabilities span all domains of information and operations technologies and systems deployed in utilities across the United States.

MAGLITE® and American Paramedic Association Partner with Pedestrian Safety Institute, Promoting Traffic and Pedestrian Safety During July: The Deadliest Month of The Year

ONTARIO, Calif., June 28, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Maglite brand partners up with the American Paramedics Association (APA) and the Pedestrian Safety Institute (PSI) to support traffic and pedestrian safety during the deadliest month of the year. According to the PSI, July maintains the highest rate of traffic related fatalities specifically with those of pedestrians. The days surrounding July 4th are particularly dangerous.

“Paramedics are those that treat the injured and see the deaths up close from traffic fatalities and want to urge people to be more cautious so that we can respond to less of these tragedies,” said Andrew Stephen, Executive Director of APA. “Any time a paramedic is out of their vehicle, the goal is to be visible. Why should it be any different for pedestrians?”

Darkness and low-visibility play a significant role in pedestrian deaths. In fact, more than 70% of fatalities happen at dawn, dusk or night. Maglite and the American Paramedic Association are on a mission to illuminate the dangers of driving in low-visibility conditions to reduce deaths and injuries. In order to raise awareness, they are distributing press materials and alerting the media about the dangers pedestrians will face in the coming months, while also promoting National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month.

National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month was created by the Pedestrian Safety Institute with the goal of educating and urging drivers to use caution while driving during this time of year. “There are simple ways to reduce the number of deaths due to pedestrian traffic accidents – carry a bright flashlight, wear reflective clothing and be cautious, especially around fast-moving traffic,” said Tony Maglica, founder and CEO of Mag Instrument, Inc., manufacturer of the Maglite® Flashlight.

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), more than 6,700 pedestrians died in vehicle related accidents in 2020, up from 6,412 the year before. GHSA projected that pedestrian fatality rate increased nearly 20% as deaths climbed sharply despite people driving less during the pandemic. Preliminary data from 2021 indicates yet another increase in pedestrian deaths.
