Polly Continues to Strengthen its ICE Mortgage Technology Partnership to Facilitate Long-term Industry Transformation

January 1, 2023

Polly, a leading provider of innovative mortgage capital markets technology, continues to further enhance its technology partnership with ICE Mortgage Technology®, part of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), a leading global provider of data, technology, and market infrastructure. The integration is built on the latest Encompass Partner Connect™ API Platform, enabling the companies to deliver near‑infinite flexibility and a robust infrastructure that empowers lenders to create, deploy, and manage new products quickly and seamlessly. Increasingly important in today's unique market, Polly's cloud‑native technologies also enable lenders to remain nimble and truly move with the market to scale their business in an easier, far more configurable way.
Polly's Loan Trading Exchange has been integrated with Encompass® by ICE Mortgage Technology since 2019. This bi‑directional API integration maximizes efficiency throughout the mortgage loan sale process by allowing lenders to effortlessly share data between the two platforms. Lenders can share their for‑sale pipeline from Encompass and receive loan‑level pricing and other settlement data upon loan commitment, thereby increasing liquidity while automating key processes. The company's high‑performance and ultra‑modern Product and Pricing Engine (PPE) boasts the same level of API integration. Lenders can read data points out of ICE's LOS system, monitor changes in data to re‑price as needed, and write back data points to standard and/or custom fields, as well as to a secondary registration for any lock events. The bi‑directional synchronization provides leading mortgage lenders with the tools necessary to operate in a more efficient and effective way while leveraging a modern, cloud‑native mortgage tech stack.
"We remain hyper focused on solving the fundamental gaps and core limitations of legacy solutions for our customer partners," explained Adam Carmel, Founder and CEO of Polly. "By establishing and maintaining such strong relationships with other prominent technology and automation providers like ICE – while modernizing mortgage capital markets with cloud‑native, AI‑powered and data‑driven software solutions – we are able to facilitate meaningful transformation across the industry."
Carmel concluded, "These technology integrations allow lenders to further realize process optimizations and cost‑savings across the mortgage lifecycle and demonstrate the depth of Polly's long‑standing relationship with ICE. We are excited to further accelerate this partnership as we continue to enhance our shared capabilities over the months and years to come."
