When looking for mortgage software companies where does one begin?
Online is where most people start, but the definition of a mortgage company differs depending upon who you talk to. It's actually amazing how many completely unrelated companies come up when you do a search for mortgage software.
Of course the better way is to ask colleagues for recommendations. But if you don't know the person on the selection committee you won't get the full story.
The important thing is to ask a lot of questions. One of the best being what sets your company apart?
In the case of OpenClose, what sets us apart is that we were founded by mortgage bankers -- not technologists. Why is that important? Because we know and lived your business. The more you know mortgage, the more you know what mortgage software needs.
