ATLANTA, Ga., March 3, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — FormFree today announced that it has been named to HousingWire’s HW TECH100™ list of the most innovative technology companies in mortgage finance and real estate for the fourth year in a row. FormFree has been featured in the TECH100 list since 2014, when the company also won a special category prize for most unique solution.
The HW TECH100 program recognizes the increasingly influential role tech providers play in advancing the U.S. housing economy. Winners are selected by HousingWire’s editorial staff based on the uniqueness of their solution and the significance of their market influence or potential. HousingWire received more than 400 nominations in the program’s inaugural year, and since then the program has seen a steady increase in the number and caliber of companies applying for the honor.
HousingWire recognized FormFree for its award-winning, mobile-friendly AccountChek™ app, which helps financial institutions determine the ability of their customers to pay back loans using data obtained directly and securely from the borrower’s financial institutions. AccountChek is the first designated vendor to manage asset verification for Desktop Underwriter® (DU®), part of Fannie Mae’s landmark Day 1 Certainty™ initiative introduced last fall.
“We are honored to be recognized by HousingWire for a fourth consecutive year. It’s a testament to AccountChek’s continuing relevancy as an innovator and trusted provider of asset verification for Fannie Mae customers,” said FormFree Founder and President Brent Chandler. “FormFree is on a mission to transform the way lenders verify borrower bona fides, starting with secure, paperless, automated asset verification through AccountChek. With even more exciting innovations in the works, we are ever focused on moving the industry forward with the help of our valued customers and partners.”
“The companies that make up the 2017 HW TECH100™ are the cream of the crop of the entire housing industry, from real estate to mortgage lending, servicing and investment,” said HousingWire Senior Financial Reporter Ben Lane. “These companies aren’t just taking part in the housing industry’s technological revolution; they’re leading it.”
