HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Auto Financial Group (AFG), announced today that it has signed an integration agreement with MeridianLink, Inc.® (NYSE: MLNK), a leading provider of modern software platforms for financial institutions and consumer reporting agencies. This partnership further reinforces AFG’s mission to pursue innovative solutions that help our clients streamline their workflows.    
With this integration, AFG’s Balloon Lending Program will be even easier to implement for financial institutions using MeridianLink’s loan origination system (LOS). The loan origination process will be more efficient, and users will not need to toggle between two platforms, increasing productivity and minimizing errors. Information will be updated automatically between both systems, keeping all loan documentation in sync and up to date.
“With this integration, financial institutions using MeridianLink will be able to originate AFG loans seamlessly, providing a responsive and straightforward solution for customers.” says Richard Epley, CEO of Auto Financial Group.
