Garden Grove, CA, United States, 2007/02/19 - Informative Research, today announced the addition of Ameritrust Mortgage Company, LLC to its Affiliate Program.
The addition effectively connects Ameritrust, a residential mortgage lender headquartered in Charlotte, NC, with Informative Research Program subscribers from three different segments of the lending community, facilitating shared access to loan programs, AUS/LOS technology and streamlined credit report re-issues.
“This promises to be a very good match,” Informative Research Business Development Manager Donovan Williams commented on the announcement. “Ameritrust is one of the fastest-growing privately held mortgage companies in the country. They do business in 36 U.S. states, and they have the innovative technology and mortgage programs our other subscribers really want. Their participation will definitely drive the growth of the Affiliate Program – and the growth of our subscriber customers’ businesses – during 2007.”
According to Williams, the Ameritrust addition also represents a “big step forward” in the expansion of the Informative Research Affiliate Program. Launched early 2006, this program links wholesale lenders, credit reporting agencies and lending technology providers together through a network for the purpose of safely sharing accurate credit information, minimizing loan fallout, eliminating the need for additional credit pulls and opening up a broader customer base for all subscribers.
Bill Richardson, Business Systems Manager at Ameritrust, said he expects his company’s participation in the Informative Research Affiliate Program will result in improved productivity. The program, he said, will give Ameritrust brokers more options when it comes to credit re-issues.
“It works very well for us,” Richardson added, “because it gives us maximum connectivity with minimal infrastructure. It enables us to use credit reports issued by Informative Research or one of its affiliate subscribers, and that means fewer lost loans in the long run."
The Informative Research Affiliate Program currently serves more than 100 subscribers. Further expansion is planned this year.
