"With more than 400 firms under consideration this year, selecting 100 was incredibly difficult - and making the cut should be considered a distinct honor," said Jacob Gaffney, executive editor of HousingWire magazine. "What really stands out to me is this: for the firms included in the 2014 HW TECH100(TM), the average reported customer growth rate year-over-year was a whopping 359 percent. This tells me that innovation is really taking off when it comes to the future of the housing economy."
The continued success and adoption of OpenCloses' comprehensive workflow-driven loan origination platform was cited as a key reason the well-established company earned a spot on HousingWire's Top 100 list. OpenClose's integrated suite of products are utilized by mortgage bankers, banks and credit unions to automate the entire lending process. The company recently released a turnkey correspondent module that has attained rapid adoption by lending organizations to cost effectively, efficiently and compliantly manage the correspondent business channel.
"We have been around since 1999; our LOS is proven to deliver newfound efficiencies to lenders of all types and sizes," stated J.P. Kelly, president of OpenClose. "As the first through-and-through browser-based LOS that was launched in the industry and being a company that engineered its entire system from the ground up, we are elated to be recognized by HousingWire magazine for our technology and success."
