Integrating Partners

The CU*Answers Software Integrations team hosts a high performance micro service based API framework that is used to communicate between all of our third party integrated partners, and the CU*BASE core processing system.

To accommodate this, we offer two different solutions:
CUA Integrations API:

    • The Integrations API is a predefined communication standard created by CU*Answers. This API follows industry standard protocols that allow vendors to connect to CU*BASE and perform certain functions, such as submitting a loan application, getting a loan decision, and other functions that continue to evolve. Writing to the CUA API lowers the barrier of entry for vendors, as it’s an established communication standard and as such, reduces the amount of custom development required by the CU*Answers team.

 

Have a vendor that would like to use our API?

UCI:

    • Built on the same framework as the API, UCI is intended to satisfy those situations where third party vendors are unable or unwilling to develop to our standard offering. The CU*Answers team will build modules onto the UCI platform, that are developed to adhere to the external vendor’s communication format. This is more development intensive on the CU*Answers side, and requires a custom quote to proceed.

Two Way Communication with Dealers

The Counteroffer Exchange project is intended to enhance and extend the ability for lenders to communicate with dealers through our indirect channels such as DealerTrack and Route One. The integrations system will now support comments being posted to and from the dealer’s management system during indirect lending operations and stored in CU*BASE.
