Radian Introduces Version of Mortgage Insurance Rate App for AndroidTM
Mobile Version of ‘Radian Rates’ Available for Android, iPhone^® and iPad^®
PHILADELPHIA -- January 16, 2013
Radian Guaranty Inc., the mortgage insurance (MI) subsidiary of Radian Group
Inc. (NYSE: RDN), today announced the availability of its MI rate finder app,
Radian Rates, for Android devices on Google Play^TM.
The first of its kind in the MI industry, Radian Rates is a mobile version of
the company’s existing online rate finder and offers lenders on-the-go access
for a quick and reliable Radian MI rate.
Just like the iPhone^® and iPad^® version launched this past September, app
users can simply input loan criteria and the app automatically calculates the
MI rate for a variety of Radian products. Backed by the company’s published
rates and guidelines, Radian Rates was designed for users to check eligibility
and compare options to find the product that best fits their needs.
“We developed Radian Rates as another way to make it quicker and easier for
our lending partners to do business with us,” said Brien McMahon, Radian’s
chief franchise officer and head of sales. “Based on the positive feedback
from our App Store^SM release, we wanted to expedite a version for Android to
ensure we were providing all of our customers with the ability to access our
rates in seconds on their smartphone, wherever they are, to better accommodate
their busy schedules.”
