Atlanta, GA, Oct 12, 2003

London Bridge Group, a major global provider of intelligent business software and eCommerce solutions, announces that MicroBilt Corporation, a leading online provider of consumer and commercial credit bureau data access, has joined the growing list of leading service providers currently offering services through London Bridge Group's eCommerce network, BridgeLink™, to provide credit reporting services to London Bridge Group's Diamond™ customers. The BridgeLink network is an XML-based technology solution that allows for easy system-to-system integration with service providers offering seamless communication and a bi-directional exchange of information and services. Diamond™ is a web-based, comprehensive loan origination solution providing streamlined functionality for mortgage lenders assisting them from point-of-sale through secondary marketing and post-closing. Credit reporting requests are automatically routed from the Diamond system to MicroBilt's MicroMerge credit reporting system using the strongest available security technologies. All credit results are available for review before being electronically posted to the Diamond database. This connectivity improves the overall efficiency of the origination process by speeding external communication, eliminating error-prone manual processes and reducing costs. "MicroBilt is excited about our new alliance with the London Bridge Group," states Ken Hill, President of MicroBilt. "Our MicroMerge credit reporting product will provide BridgeLink-Diamond mortgage customers with more advanced rules and formatting than most merged reports on the market." "Having MicroBilt as a partner, through our BridgeLink eServices Network, enables our customers to have a fully automated and seamless way of requesting credit reports from the Diamond system," said Reggie Swiney, vice president of product delivery for the Mortgage Division of London Bridge Group. "The end result is a more efficient and effective way of obtaining credit reporting data." MicroBilt's MicroMerge system, in conjunction with Diamond and the BridgeLink network, offer an easy, fast and secure way to process credit reporting requests using the power of the Internet. This connectivity continues to advance the technology of mortgage lending. About MicroBilt:
