Arch MI Updates on New Integration with PathSoftware
Arch Mortgage Insurance Company (Arch MI) reported the completion of a new integration with PathSoftware, a new highly structured, cloud-based mortgage loan origination software (LOS) from CalyxSoftware.
According to a media release, this integration will enable Arch MI's delegated customers to order mortgage insurance from within PathSoftware. Loan data is securely transferred to Arch MI, ensuring accuracy and protection for sensitive borrower data. Certificates of Insurance are returned within seconds, and automatically stored in Path.
Arch MI said that customers using PathSoftware will be able to access RateStar, its risk-based pricing program that matches its most competitive rates to individual loan risk, allowing loan originators to offer more affordable mortgages to eligible borrowers.
"Arch MI is very pleased to partner with PathSoftware to support their users," said Chris Hovey, executive vice president and COO at Arch MI. "This integration is another example of our commitment to provide lenders innovative and seamless technology solutions that work with their origination systems. Now our delegated customers who use Path can more easily order Arch MI mortgage insurance and take advantage of Arch MI RateStar."
PathSoftware is a data-driven, not form-driven, LOS. It enhances visibility and improves productivity across multiple business channels--wholesale, retail and correspondent.
"PathSoftware is new and unique in the industry, which has given us an opportunity to do things a little differently. Our deployment strategy includes carefully choosing our integration partners--focusing on ensuring the quality and level of seamless connectivity we are committed to providing," said Doug Mitchell, director of sales and support at PathSoftware. "It was a natural step to integrate with Arch MI so that our customers have access to their competitive rates through RateStar, and can efficiently order mortgage insurance without leaving Path."

Tea Forté Introduces ‘Matcha’ Collection
Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.
The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.
"The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."
Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.
According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
