Hoping to distinguish itself in the cluttered field of lending technology, Wendover Financial Services launched a system Wednesday that it said increases automation in all aspects of the mortgage process, from applications to appraisals and title insurance.

Officials at the unit of Electronic Data Systems of Plano, Tex., said some tasks, such as title searches, will still require offline labor but that the system seeks to centralize the process by requesting and receiving documents through the Internet. More importantly, they said, the system will let lenders, banks, and other financial service companies outsource much of the lending process online after the application is submitted.
