Exchange connects more than 20,000 of the mortgage industry's service and solution providers with the top lenders in the industry. Fifth Third will be able to access Exchange directly from Black Knight's Empower LOS.

- LoanSphere Quality Insight - a loan quality assessment tool that automates internal quality control reviews, provides consistent feedback on investor and lender compliance requirements, supports remediation and exception processing, and helps improve data integrity and reduce repurchase requests.
