RE: Metro 2 Reporting

Hyder, I don't know of a "converter" program per se, in part because the the Metro II file contains a lot of information that your system may not ask for, therefore there may not be enough info collect to 'convert.'  Hope this makes sense. For whatever it's worth, our system Loan Servicing Software | The Mortgage Office has built in credit reporting, so you can upload directly to the bureaus or to the CBA.  I'm sure other systems out there do the same. Hope this helps. ------------------------------ [More]

Good morning, When I used to work on a program like this a few years ago, I think I used DownHome Solutions but I'm not completely sure. There aren't any suggestions on CBA's website? -Esther Esther James Communications & Responsible Business - Community Relations Specialist Mobile 281-543-4022 esther.james@bbva.com TX-HO-HT-CRR - 2200 Post Oak Blvd, Floor 21, Houston, TX 7705 6 Before you print this message please consider if it is really necessary.

Hi Hyder, LoanWell's platform can export Metro 2 file format and our customers commonly report through CBA. Additionally, we are an end-to-end system for origination and servicing if you are interested in consolidating systems. CBA's Reporter offering may support programmatic integrations but would require using a servicing platform that can do it. https://creditbuildersalliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/CBA-Reporter-Service-with-Pricing_2020.pdf ------------------------------ Philip Tester [More]

Not sure if there is an export platform to feed CBA. Our product, the Exceptional Assistant - TEA has had the capability for a very long time. Working with CBA to get this info uploaded is a great move.

We are in the process of becoming a reporter with CBA (Credit Builder's Alliance) however our servicing software (LendingFront) doesn't have Metro 2 capabilities. Does anyone use a third party platform to convert account data to Metro 2 for reporting and if so how do you like it? ------------------------------ Hyder Shuja Credit Analyst Pacific Community Ventures Oakland CA 5622983524 ------------------------------

Hi Caprice! We had pre-existing custom loan documents for each of our products prior to integrating with Lenderfit which we have continued to use with some minor changes. I'm not certain, but I believe that the last time I touched base with the Lenderfit team, they were exploring the possibility of offering Loan Doc templates for clients. Definitely worth checking out. Do you have a wide variety of loan products that frequently require new document creation? Vanessa -- Vanessa Koenigsmark Senior [More]

Hi @Vanessa Koenigsmark and thanks for your contribution.  We are currently considering Lenderfit for some of the reasons you list. In terms of loan doc creation (if we understand correctly), it sounds as though we need to have the forms already created and that they could upload them.  Where did you source your loan documentation?  (We are currently using Finastra's LaserPro, but are not happy with the user-friendliness factor for staff input.) Thanks in advance, for any additional information [More]
