Arch MI Wins a HousingWire Tech100 Mortgage Award for the Second Year in a Row

HousingWire recognizes Arch MI for its refinance MI solution and voice technology enhancements.

GREENSBORO, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arch MI has been named a winner of HousingWire’s Tech100 Mortgage Awards for its RateStar Refinance Retention tool and voice technology solutions.

As a sharp drop in mortgage rates sparked a refinance boom in mid-2019, Arch MI introduced the RateStar Refinance Retention program to enable lenders to stand out from the competition by offering qualified borrowers the opportunity to get both a lower-interest loan and a lower MI payment.

In addition to spotlighting Arch MI’s RateStar Refinance Retention tool in the March 2020 issue, HousingWire describes Arch MI’s deployment of voice technology for lenders to access the Loan Status Lookup tool via loan origination systems, desktop PCs or Alexa-enabled devices.

“We’re pleased HousingWire recognized our RateStar platform and the new solutions it provides for lenders to originate and close more loans in a changing marketplace,” said Jim Jumpe, Arch MI Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “We also appreciate this recognition of the hard work of our technology group and our customer teams who work directly with lenders to meet their needs and maximize opportunities.”

“The winners of the 2020 HousingWire Tech100 awards are truly the most impactful and innovative companies in housing,” said HousingWire CEO Clayton Collins. “Not only do these companies empower their clients and users, they are supporting a more efficient, accessible and sustainable housing economy.”
