With the CreditXpert®️ suite of analysis, simulation, and optimization products, Birchwood delivers the insights and predictions you need to get more borrowers approved, more offers accepted, and more loans closed. From Credit Assure™ and Credit Radar™ to CreditXpert Wayfinder™ and CreditXpert What-If Simulator™, we help you get the facts, identify risks and opportunities, and make a plan to maximize your borrower’s score. Mortgage professionals using these products typically close 42% more loans each month.

Rapid Rescore

Make corrections and updates 90% faster. Position yourself as a valuable customer ally who responds with lightning speed and delivers the exact right loan products. Rapid Rescore expedites bureau-level updates and corrections, making updates available in only 3 to 5 days instead of 30 to 45. Rush requests available in as few as 24 to 72 hours.


Identify credit issues before you order a tri-merge report. Configure which bureaus to access based on specific criteria in a cascading LOS ordering platform that allows a single bureau or bi-merge credit report to be upgraded with additional bureau data once predefined benchmarks—usually a FICO score requirement—have been met. Four upgrade options available with eight additional attribute options.


An easy and convenient way to access your borrower’s credit data. This customizable credit-ordering portal creates a consumer-facing website URL with which you can collect borrower information, process a credit pull request, and accept payment by credit card. The borrower’s contact information and credit file number are emailed directly to you.

Portfolio Protector

Be proactive about customer retention. This low-cost, customized solution makes it easy to quickly and reliably identify credit shoppers in your portfolio so you have a chance to reach out before they move forward with a competitor. Get alerts within 24 hours of a customer applying for credit.
