FirstClose Migrates Fulton Financial Corporation to FirstClose Home Equity Lending Report System

AUSTIN, Texas--()--FirstClose, a provider of end-to-end technology solutions for refinance and home equity lenders nationwide, today announced the successful migration of Fulton Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: FULT), to its new, FirstClose Report system to provide Fulton Financial access to the full refinance and home equity lending technology solution and vendor management system.

Fulton Financial, a Lancaster, Pa.-based financial holding company offering investment management, trust services and residential mortgage lending, has utilized FirstClose’s a la carte, legacy services since 2009, and recently completed a full migration in order to access the full-service, all-inclusive FirstClose Report.

Now, Fulton Financial is able to receive comprehensive refinance and home equity loan reports including title, flood, valuation and other important data elements in one file.
