Jun 10, 2011 (01:06 PM EDT)


MILWAUKEE, June 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As a new benefit to its mortgage lending partners, the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) is partnering with eMagic to provide a secure web-based portal through which lenders can electronically submit loan packages to WHEDA. The new private labeled web site, called WHEDA Connect, will increase efficiencies and reduce costs for both WHEDA and its lending partners.

The WHEDA Connect portal allows secure delivery of single family mortgage loan applications and closing packages and thereby lowering package delivery and processing costs and speeding up underwriting and closing package review turnaround times. Myers Internet, an eMagic subsidiary, is hosting the web site, www.wheda-connect.com, where partner lenders can sign-up for WHEDA Connect. The web site also serves as the access point for forms and other relevant information on the WHEDA Advantage program.

"This is a service that we've been eager to launch for some time now. With WHEDA Connect, we have a new, secure online resource to help achieve greater efficiencies in our loan origination process," explained Wyman Winston, Executive Director of WHEDA. "We'd like to recognize eMagic and Myers Internet in their efforts to help us continue our mission of providing low-cost financing to first time home buyers across the state."

"We're excited about our new partnership with WHEDA," explained Chad Northington, eMagic/Myers Managing Director. "At a time of lower origination volumes and increasing production and operational expenses, it's vital for organizations like WHEDA to make the most of every opportunity while keeping costs in check. eMagic's automated workflow combined with our Myers webhosting can help WHEDA do just that."
