HousingWire Magazine Cites Accenture Among Most Innovative Technology Companies in the Mortgage Industry

NEW YORK; Mar. 17, 2017 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named to HousingWire magazine’s fourth annual HW TECH100™ list, which recognizes the most innovative technology companies in the mortgage industry. The list was published in this month’s issue of the magazine.

“I’m very pleased that HousingWire has acknowledged Accenture’s contributions to the mortgage market, as we understand the ever-present need to innovate in order to meet customer needs in a fast-changing environment,” said Michael Detwiler, Senior Managing Director of Accenture Credit Services.

Accenture’s Mortgage & Compliance as a Service (MCaaS) offering provides lenders with premium service that, when integrated with their compliance infrastructures, produces loans that will meet regulatory scrutiny and investor guidelines while delivering high levels of customer satisfaction. Among providing other benefits, MCaaS reduces the need for lenders to continually upgrade their legacy mortgage technology and processes in order to keep pace with innovation or to ensure compliance with the latest investor and regulatory requirements.

“The 100 companies that make up the 2017 HW TECH100™ are the cream of the crop of the entire housing industry, from real estate to mortgage lending, servicing, and investment,” said HousingWire Senior Financial Reporter Ben Lane. “These companies aren’t just taking part in the housing industry’s technological revolution; they’re leading it.”

MCaaS is the industry’s first outsourcing solution that provides people, process, technology and a robust warranty framework for regulatory compliance, vendor and investor guidelines management, and data integrity, thereby addressing the most significant concerns of today’s lenders.
