Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE: BKI) made a number of announcements recently, including a new customer, a new integration, and an acquisition.

To start things off, Cadence Bank, a full-service regional bank based in Atlanta, has selected Black Knight‘s integrated, end-to-end origination and servicing technology solutions to support its entire mortgage and home equity business. Cadence will leverage multiple, seamlessly integrated Black Knight solutions with embedded data and analytics to support every stage of the mortgage and home equity origination, servicing and default life cycles.

Then, in other news, Black Knight completed integration of its Optimal Blue PPE engine with Freddie Mac’s Loan Selling Advisor® Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). By connecting the two in real-time, the company said its Optimal Blue PPE will enhance efficiencies and secondary marketing processes by fully automating the pricing of Freddie Mac loans.

Finally, Black Knight acquired a cloud-based loan origination system (LOS) from NexSpring Financial, LLC to broaden Black Knight’s ability to serve mortgage brokers. The new LOS will be seamlessly integrated into Black Knight’s Empower LOS.

“The company’s origination and servicing technologies are truly best-in-class, and its solutions have a proven history of supporting regulatory compliance,” said Sharon Geib, president, Cadence Bank Mortgage Division. “We’re looking forward to benefiting from seamless, end-to-end integration between our origination and servicing systems and leveraging these tools to provide an enhanced customer experience.”
