Today SimpleNexus announced that it credits its accelerated 2019 growth to demand for digital mortgage tools capable of easy integration with lenders’ full tech stacks.
“Increasingly, our customers are telling us that they are only willing to invest in software platforms and products that are able to work symbiotically with their existing tech stack,” said Founder and CEO of SimpleNexus Matt Hansen. “Lenders are seeking to avoid shelling out tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars on custom integrations that may no longer be useful five years down the line. Lenders are drawn to SimpleNexus because our platform is flexible, cost-effective and capable of retaining relevance over time.”
Last year SimpleNexus added 59 enterprise clients to its roster, bringing the total number of enterprise lenders SimpleNexus empowers to “do more” to more than 216, including 15 of the top 25 retail lenders in the United States. To date, the company has connected its more than 22,000 active loan originators with 1.3 million borrowers and 89,000 real estate partners to produce loans totaling over $200 billion in volume.
In 2019, SimpleNexus significantly bolstered features designed to enhance lender productivity, facilitate referral partnership development and drive cross-platform functionality. In March, SimpleNexus announced an enhanced disclosures toolset that expedites the disclosure process by days. July marked the release of an API that enables real-time data transfers with other systems. In August SimpleNexus debuted new tools for building real estate partner relationships.
