To date, the organization has judged more than 230,000 entries from applicants in 125 countries.

"Top of Mind is committed to helping mortgage lenders connect with homebuyers on a deeper, emotional level. Our engaging content supports borrowers in making educated purchase decisions they will feel good about for a lifetime."

Top of Mind won the platinum award in three categories for "Around the Neighborhood," a dynamic web animation educating borrowers on factors that could impact the value of a home, such as nearby home sales, school zones and typical commute times. "Markets in a Minute," an interactive landing page that provides a snapshot of weekly mortgage market rates, took home a platinum award as a Facebook series and two gold awards as an email landing page. "Journey to Your New Home," an educational web animation that walks borrowers through the lending process, took home gold awards in two categories.

Innovation Technology Award Goes to OpenClose Loan Origination System

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- OpenClose(R), the industry-leading omni-channel loan origination system (LOS) and digital mortgage fintech provider, announced that it received PROGRESS in Lending Association's 2020 Innovation Award for its "truly game-changing solutions in the mortgage space." The award was given for OpenClose's newly combined end-to-end browser-based LOS, digital mortgage point-of-sale (POS) solution, native product and pricing engine (PPE), businesses intelligence (BI) capabilities, and RESTful API suite.

Award winners were selected by a panel of mortgage technology experts that selected winners based on each innovation's overall industry significance; the innovation's originality; the positive change the innovation made possible; the intangible efficiencies gained as a result of the innovation; and the hard cost and time savings that the innovation enables industry participants to achieve.

"We're ecstatic to be honored with this 2020 Innovation Award," said JP Kelly, president at OpenClose. "As PROGRESS in Lending acknowledged, we were the first to successfully create a single-source, 100 percent browser-based LOS and POS solution. The genesis of this model stemmed from us observing lenders having to deal with too many disparate technologies and vendors in order to automate digital lending processes, which can be prone to compatibility problems and increase cost per loan."

According to its website, PROGRESS in Lending states that while there are a lot of digital mortgage POS vendor offerings offering standalone solutions in the market, OpenClose was the ground-breaking vendor that decided to focus on developing the first truly consolidated digital mortgage POS and end-to-end multi-channel LOS solution offered by a single-source provider along with a native PPE, BI, and RESTful API suite.

We are the only mortgage fintech provider proven to implement a comprehensive, purely browser-based LOS with omni-channel digital lending capability," asserted Vince Furey, CRO at OpenClose. "As with any leader, our competitors are now copying our marketplace positioning, messaging and value proposition, but falling short. The entire team at OpenClose is appreciative of PROGRESS in Lending Association for recognizing our efforts with this award."

A complete list of the 2020 Innovation Award winners can be found on PROGRESS in Lending's website https://mymortgagemindset.com/the-2020-innovations-award-winners-are.

About OpenClose:

Founded in 1999 and headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida, OpenClose(R) is a leading enterprise-class, omni-channel loan origination system (LOS), POS digital mortgage and fintech provider that cost effectively delivers its digital platform on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis. The company provides a variety of innovative, 100 percent browser-based solutions for banks, credit unions, lenders and conduit aggregators. OpenClose's core solution, LenderAssist(TM), is comprehensive loan origination software that is completely engineered by OpenClose using the same code base from the ground up. The company offers a RESTful API suite that standardizes system-to-system integrations, making them easier to develop, quicker to implement and more cost effective.

Outstanding Infrastructure Services Solution Award

"Our next-generation SD-WAN solution is the ultimate platform on which to transform existing legacy or MPLS networks into agile, flexible and scalable networks, suitable for conducting business in the 21st century," said Maude.

"Our unique approach allows users to build sophisticated SD-WAN solutions, integrating public and private cloud core networks, with full multi-tenancy capabilities and licensing options for ISPs and MSPs.

"It was this solution, primarily backed by the IBM Cloud network, that has seen our company exceed all growth targets year on year."

The Beacon Award winners were chosen by a panel of expert judges that consisted of industry experts, IBM executives and industry analysts who recognised how Fusion Broadband's SD-WAN solution sparks client innovation with IBM technology.

CIENCE Debuts at #31 in The Financial Times Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2020

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The Financial Times announced the inaugural listing of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in the Americas, and lead generation company CIENCE Technologies placed No. 31 out of 500 companies measured. This ranking of the fastest-growing companies signifies a unique look at the most successful companies at a perilous and unpredictable time.

In these unprecedented times where there is so much economic uncertainty, risk, and pain, the ability to generate new business is arguably more important than ever before.

"The timing is interesting here, but the biggest takeaway is that our ability to help clients grow gives us the opportunity to receive this prestigious recognition by the FT," said Eric Quanstrom, CMO of CIENCE. "Our own rapid growth is proof that our Orchestrated Outbound model works. We help our client companies grow, we grow too - it's a virtuous circle."

FT Americas Fastest 500 List

The Financial Times list was compiled with the research company Statista, and ranks entrants from across the Americas by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenue between 2015 and 2018.

The companies on this list show remarkable rates of growth across all industries in the Americas. Between 2015 and 2018, these 500 private companies had a median growth rate of 250 percent.

Interestingly, CIENCE Technologies embodies both of the top two most represented sectors - Technology (25 percent) and Support Services (9 percent). The CIENCE 'Machine-Powered, Human-Driven' approach to lead generation offers the best of both worlds.

Despite the coronavirus, unemployment, and the current recessionary environment, CIENCE also continues to grow, including adding jobs and new customers.

"We continue to find opportunities for ourselves and our clients because that's what we do," said Quanstrom. "We believe that businesses will lead the recovery process out of the current cataclysm. It's our job to connect buyers and sellers... Regardless of headwinds. Continuing to grow, off the strong foundation the FT has recognized here, is key."

More about FT and the Top 500 Methodology

The FT Americas' Fastest Growing Companies 2020 is a list of the top 500 companies in the Americas that have achieved the highest growth in revenues between 2015 and 2018.

The ranking was created through a complex procedure. Although the search was very extensive, the ranking does not claim to be complete, as some companies did not want to make their figures public or did not participate for other reasons.

The project was advertised online and in print, allowing all eligible companies to register via the websites created by Statista and the Financial Times.
