“Ellie Mae has collaborated with a number of lenders to understand their needs while shaping the program,” said Joe Tyrrell, Ellie Mae’s executive vice president of corporate strategy. “Collateral risk and fraud-detection are two of the must-have capabilities that have been mentioned time and again, and lenders have asked to have DataVerify’s risk mitigation platform integrated into TQL. As a result, we are very excited to add the DataVerify DRIVE system as a standard feature of TQL.”

DataVerify’s platform provides comprehensive data aggregation to assists in data verification and fraud prevention.
