This revolutionary tool uses data mining, automatic document recognition and smart technology to enter information from items like driver’s licenses, tax returns, county records, and more.

This will provide them with a step-by-step process that will allow them to complete the initial approval when it’s convenient for them, creating a faster experience and fewer subscription keys.

“We will remember BOLT as an important development in the mortgage industry that has forever changed the way underwriting is done,” said Ishbia. “UWM built this technology, which uses things like document recognition and indexing. This will allow the initial approval of the file to be completed in minutes rather than hours, while ensuring that safeguards and quality standards are in place, as they always are with UWM, to secure clean loans. . ”
