HousingWire has released its 2014 HW TECH100 list—the media company’s new annual list that highlights the most innovative technology firms in the U.S. housing economy—in which Global DMS was selected as an honoree due to our continual innovation within the real estate valuation management spectrum.
When devising its inaugural list, HousingWire looked at technology companies that offer solutions focusing on one or more of the following industry sectors: residential mortgage lending, residential mortgage servicing, residential mortgage investments, and residential real estate. HousingWire’s new program is the first to look at technology across the entire housing economy, and more than 400 technology firms either applied or were nominated by readers for its inaugural 2014 HW TECH100 list.
“With more than 400 firms under consideration this year, selecting 100 was incredibly difficult – and making the cut should be considered a distinct honor,” said HousingWire’s Executive Editor, Jacob Gaffney. “What really stands out to me is this: for the firms included in the 2014 HW TECH100, the average reported customer growth rate year-over-year was a whopping 359-percent. This tells me that innovation is really taking off when it comes to the future of the housing economy.”
Innovation represented the center of this contest, and every application HousingWire received was thoroughly examined for an innovation that met one of the following six criteria: unique solution, elegant implementation, market influence, growth, market potential, and “something else entirely”.
“I’d like to congratulate all of this year’s HW TECH100 honorees,” said Richard Bitner, President of HousingWire. “Achieving this level of recognition isn’t easy, and requires a strong commitment to both innovation and execution that can make ideas a reality. This year’s list demonstrates that the future of the U.S. housing economy is a bright one.”
