JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI) announced today that First Interstate Bank, a $12 billion community bank with more than 120 banking offices, has signed a three-year renewal for LoanSphere MSP, Black Knight’s industry-leading servicing system that supports first mortgages, as well as home equity loans and lines of credit. MSP’s single, comprehensive platform will be used by First Interstate Bank to manage all of its mortgage servicing processes, including loan boarding, payment processing, escrow administration, default management and more. First Interstate Bank has been an MSP client for 35 years.

As part of its renewal, First Interstate Bank will implement Black Knight’s Lien Alert solution, which monitors loans and provides automatic alerts on critical lien-related indicators that could impact a servicer’s business, such as foreclosure/default activity, ownership changes, new loans recorded, ARM resets and more. In addition, First Interstate Bank will use Black Knight’s Portfolio Overview Insight solution, which leverages both Black Knight’s LoanSphere Data Hub technology and the LoanSphere Motivity enterprise business intelligence tool. The Data Hub collects, links and stores loan data from client applications, Black Knight technologies and industry data in a central loction. The Motivity solution offers on-demand, dynamic reporting that servicers can use to quickly view detailed information about their servicing portfolio without printing a report or opening a file.

MSP is used to service more than 33 million active loans and helps servicers increase operational efficiency, reduce operating costs and improve risk mitigation.
