BI Solution Positions Optimal Blue for Sustainable Success in the Digital Mortgage Marketplace
Optimal Blue is a leading provider of secondary marketing automation in the mortgage industry to thousands of originators, investors, and providers as part of the Digital Mortgage Marketplace. Optimal Blue’s solutions capture a wealth of transactional data, and the company’s leaders identified a unique opportunity to develop a client analytics solution that would complement and enhance the integration of their existing product portfolio. The company wanted to deliver a business intelligence product that would enable its clients to leverage both marketplace and enterprise data to improve their decision-making and stay competitive through timely and actionable intelligence. Optimal Blue needed a trusted partner that could help it navigate through the initial design and development of the new product to enhance their position in the market.
SysLogic was selected as a partner to lead and manage the overall project and development of the analytics solution that could be leveraged nationwide by Optimal Blue’s clients.
In addition to providing expertise in business intelligence, information management, and project leadership, SysLogic provided training and mentoring so Optimal Blue could build its internal expertise.
SysLogic provided direction to ensure data integrity within the end product so Optimal Blue’s clients would have an accurate, powerful new business intelligence product.
Based on the positive experience and success Optimal Blue had during the initial project, we continue to partner with SysLogic to help drive our business forward and bring additional value to our clients.
Optimal Blue’s senior leaders were involved and supported this initiative from day one. They committed the necessary resources and provided active, hands-on support. Because the executive team participated regularly in the three-week Sprint Reviews, they were well informed and could position the company for an accelerated product release.
Ongoing communication between all parties kept the teams in sync and the project on target. A 15-minute daily standup meeting kept the project moving efficiently and helped phase in new people as the team grew and project dynamics changed. Although the two teams were working across the country, focus on collaboration and effective communication meant that being remote never slowed this project down.
The goal of the project was to provide Optimal Blue’s clients with the ability to aggregate and utilize large amounts of transactional data. SysLogic’s business intelligence expertise helped establish the right processes and oversight to ensure data integrity. Optimal Blue was able to achieve a better understanding of its data and how it could use that data to give clients more accurate intelligence.
SysLogic’s collaborative partnership and technological expertise helped Optimal Blue create a high value proposition for our clients. Working with the SysLogic team rapidly accelerated our ability to bring this product to market.
