Earlier this week, Informative Research received HousingWire’s coveted 2018 TECH100™ award, being recognized as one of the most innovative technology companies in the mortgage industry.

Compared to previous years, the number of submissions hit a record high for 2018, demonstrating the high level of competition this year for a spot in the final 100.


“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.”


Recognized for their modernized solutions and technology, we’ve saved the lending industry millions of dollars in loan production expenses and continue to streamline the loan process for thousands of mortgage lenders and their borrowers nationwide. For example, Our newest solution, Txt2Qual, generates more leads for lenders by automatically providing an applicant’s prequalification status and contact information within 60 seconds.

Along with Txt2Qual, IR developed the Verification Bundle, which allows clients to pick specific solutions and data partners from IR’s wide range of verification products and combine them into one invoice with a more affordable, straightforward credit report fee. By bundling multiple products – from credit reports and flood certifications to 4506Ts and SSN verification – under one roof, lenders save hundreds of thousands of dollars on annual disclosure fees and it helps them manage additional spend throughout the loan lifecycle.

“We’re completely humbled by this recognition from HousingWire and their TECH100 award,” remarked Scott Horn, COO of Informative Research. “We have an amazing team here at IR that’s focused on simplifying the success of our clients and we couldn’t be more excited to help push this industry into the future.”
