â�¢ View and print results that contain all the loan parameters used to generate the MI quote;
â�¢ See a brief description of each Genworth MI product when the computer cursor hovers over it; and
â�¢ Generate a scenario ID to allow a loan originator to recall a specific Optimal Blue Genworth MI rate quote obtained through Genworth's Rate Express and order MI directly from Rate Express.
