Comergence named to HousingWire Tech100

Comergence’s REALM technology also wins HousingWire’s “Something Else Entirely” award 

MISSION VIEJO, CA (March 5, 2015) — Comergence, a provider of third-party risk-management platforms for the mortgage industry, announces that it has been named to  HousingWire’s HW TECH100TM list of the housing economy’s most innovative technology companies.

HousingWire’s ranking is the only list of technology innovation that captures the entire U.S. housing economy, spanning real estate to mortgage lending, servicing and investments. More than 250 companies were evaluated by HousingWire editors for this year’s program, which looks at technology innovation along six different categories: uniqueness of solution, growth, market influence, market potential, elegance of implementation, and “something else entirely”—a catch-all for disruption and other factors that drive innovation. In addition to naming 100 companies to this year’s HW TECH100™, HousingWire editors selected category winners for each of the six categories that define the contest. Comergence was the winner of the category “something else entirely.”

“We are delighted to be named to the HW Tech100 list, and are especially pleased to have been selected as the winner of the Something Else Entirely award,” said Greg Schroeder, president of Comergence. “Our REALM for Third Party Originators and REALM for Appraisers solutions simplify both originator and appraiser approval processes.  The Comergence solutions save all parties—including lenders, originators, appraisers and AMCs—time and money.”

“Because of the wide breadth of technology this program looks at, being named to the HW TECH100™ is a distinct honor and something each of this year’s honorees should be proud of,” said Paul Jackson, Publisher and CEO at HousingWire. “Our team of editors puts in more than 400 combined hours each year to make this program a reality.”

“This year, we were struck by the level of innovation we saw, with 40 new additions to the HW TECH100™,” said Jacob Gaffney, Executive Editor at HousingWire. “That speaks to how much change is taking place in the mortgage industry overall right now; we’re seeing a lot of market disruption, and technology providers are clearly taking advantage of that opportunity.
