Feb 11, 2021

ATLANTA, Feb. 11, 2021 — Top of Mind Networks (Top of Mind), a leader in customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing automation software for the mortgage lending industry, announced its integration with digital lending platform Blend

The integration leverages bi-directional data syncing between Surefire CRM and Blend’s point of sale (POS) platform, enabling the systems to automatically prefill loan applications with borrower contact information and execute automated workflows tailored to where clients are in the loan journey. When combined, the technologies automate Surefire CRM’s workflows and award-winning content to loan applicants, resulting in improved loan application completion rates and borrower satisfaction.

The best way to find out what we offer is to try it out yourself. We’re confident that you’ll like what you see.

“Data indicates that only 63% of mortgage loan applications started are fully completed,” said Top of Mind CRO Nick Belenky. “A premium lending POS like Blend can increase that number, and when paired with Surefire CRM, elevate it substantially. From the moment a borrower begins a loan application, Surefire CRM helps usher them on their journey to homeownership.” 

To remove redundancy from the loan application process, Surefire CRM syncs its contact information with Blend so prospects receive the white-glove service of an intelligently prefilled loan application. Likewise, the integration helps loan teams keep applications on track with minimal effort through automated borrower outreach tailored to each application stage and notifications that suggest loan team intervention when an application has stalled.

“The benefits of Blend’s digital lending platform, which improves borrower satisfaction and expedites origination times by streamlining the lending experience, are amplified when paired with Top of Mind’s Surefire CRM,” said Blend Head of Business Development, Brian Martin. “Prefilling loan applications with known borrower information has been shown to bolster lenders’ Net Promoter Score (NPS). Combined with in-process automation that facilitates application completion, Blend’s partnership with Top of Mind positions lenders to deliver a white-glove experience.”
