Black Knight, Inc. announced that Together Credit Union, a St. Louis-based credit union with 27 branches nationwide, has selected the Empower loan origination system (LOS) to help drive expected business growth and elevate the member experience.

The Empower LOS offers a digital, “lights out” ecosystem built using cloud-based architecture to drive business growth while cutting operational costs.

These additional offerings include an industry-leading product and pricing engine from Optimal Blue, a division of Black Knight; machine-learning technology for document classification and indexing; and a digital point-of-sale solution that enhances the mortgage application process for members and loan officers. Together Credit Union will also use Black Knight’s digital close solution with eDelivery and eSigning capabilities; a home equity and regulatory assistance solution suite; tax and title services; professional flood zone determinations; and a comprehensive fee service to help mitigate fee cures.
“Empower is the right loan origination system to support Together Credit Union with building member relationships that last a lifetime,” said Rich Gagliano, president of Origination Technologies at Black Knight. “By integrating multiple value-add solutions with Empower, Together Credit Union will be even better equipped to provide its members faster, easier access and advanced digital tools.”
