PROVO, Utah, April 4, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Simplifile, a leading provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents, and counties, announced that it has been included on the fifth annual HW Tech100™ list published by housing and mortgage industry trade magazine HousingWire. This year marks the third consecutive year Simplifile has made the Tech100 list, which recognizes, “the most innovative technology companies in the U.S. housing economy, spanning real estate, mortgage lending, mortgage servicing, and investments.”

In its profile on Simplifile in the April issue, HousingWire focused on the integration of Simplifile’s services, including e-notarization and e-recording, with mortgage document and technology provider Docutech’s Solex e-closing solution to deliver a more streamlined digital platform to lenders, settlement agents, and borrowers.

“Simplifile is committed to helping lenders and settlement agents make each mortgage transaction as ‘e’ as it can be, and by combining our suite of services that automate key portions of the real estate process, like document collaboration, post-closing and recording, with complementary platforms like Docutech’s, we are better able to make our goal of facilitating eMortgages a reality,” said Simplifile President Paul Clifford. “On behalf of Simplifile, I’d like to thank the HousingWire editorial staff for judging our efforts in this area worthy of recognition on this year’s Tech100 list.”

The level of competition for the 2018 HW Tech100 was higher than in previous years, the magazine’s editorial staff noted, citing in its announcement of this year’s winners a significant increase in the number of applicants and the presence of 55 first-time winners on this year’s list.

“The number of fintech companies serving the mortgage industry has exploded over the last several years — making the choice of just 100 companies this year very difficult,” said HousingWire Magazine Editor Sarah Wheeler. “Companies in the 2018 Tech100 represent the leading edge of solutions and services that will propel mortgage companies toward success.”

“These companies provide innovative solutions and are moving the housing finance industry forward as technology rapidly changes how the landscape operates,” said HousingWire Online Editor Caroline Basile.
