LOS ANGELES, CA (March 17, 2014) – VelocifyTM, the market leader in cloud-based intelligent sales automation software, has been named to HousingWire’s 2014 HW TECH100™ list of the housing economy’s 100 most innovative technology companies. Velocify was nominated for its sales automation technology, which allows lenders and mortgage professionals to accelerate lead response times, enforce best practices, keep loan officers focused on the highest priority sales opportunities, and maintain borrower engagement. Sponsored by HousingWire magazine, the 2014 HW TECH100 list garnered more than 400 nominations across the entire housing industry, including the real estate, mortgage, mortgage servicing and mortgage investment sectors.
“Considering all the innovation taking place throughout the $10 trillion housing market—from loan origination systems to real estate auction sites to appraisal technology—making the HW TECH100 company is indeed an honor,” said Velocify CEO Nick Hedges. “To us, the recognition demonstrates the growing importance of sales automation within the industry. The lenders and mortgage professionals that have it are clearly separating themselves from the pack.”
The recognition comes one month after Velocify received several 2014 LeadsCouncil LEADER Awards, winning three categories including Best in Class Lead Management, Mortgage Category and Most Valuable Partner, Mortgage Category. It was the fourth consecutive year Velocify received a LEADER award.

“The revolution in mortgage and real estate technology is just getting started,” said Paul Jackson, HousingWire publisher and CEO. “What we’ve already seen happen in many other industries, from retail to news media, we’re now seeing take place on a grand scale in the U.S. housing economy.
