"I look forward to bringing the organizations together and leveraging my background in data, analytics and insights to help mortgage lenders better understand their borrowers and provide personalized service that helps them attain their homeownership and financial goals."

Prior to taking the helm of Mortgage Coach and Sales Boomerang, Harris was CEO at SparkPost, an email sending and optimization platform delivering 40% of the world's commercial email. He led that company through tremendous growth and oversaw its $600 million acquisition by omnichannel communication platform MessageBird. Before his tenure at SparkPost, Harris was group vice president at cloud technology company Oracle (NYSE: ORCL), where he led international operations of its Data Cloud business unit. He was previously CEO at consumer insights and digital ad personalization company AddThis, where he rapidly scaled the company and facilitated its acquisition by Oracle. Harris holds J.D. and MBA degrees from the University of Maryland.

Alex Kutsishin and Dave Savage, founders of Sales Boomerang and Mortgage Coach, will continue to actively nurture the company and its relationships in leadership roles.

"By bringing together the very best in database monitoring, market intelligence, automation, personalization and education, Sales Boomerang and Mortgage Coach deliver the short- and long-term financial results lenders crave," said Kutsishin.

Sales Boomerang joins forces with Bonzo to enable automated mortgage marketing with personality

BALTIMORE, Md. -- Sales Boomerang, the mortgage industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, today announced its integration with Bonzo, an omnichannel sales engagement platform designed to scale the voice of mortgage advisors so they can attract, convert and retain clients on autopilot. By enabling the automatic transferral of consumer data from Sales Boomerang, Bonzo users can engage high-intent leads instantly via automated outreach that creates a seamless lending experience.

Sales Boomerang monitors lenders' databases to identify exactly when a past or prospective customer is ready for a loan. Sales Boomerang's 11 unique loan opportunity alerts can be triggered by market factors or consumer behaviors, such as applying with another lender or reaching a target credit score.

Bonzo's automated customer engagement system is built around the idea that people want to do business with other people, not a faceless algorithm. Through personalized text, email, video, voicemail and power dialer marketing, Bonzo helps lenders create and manage meaningful connections with anyone in their business environment.

Built with simplicity in mind, the Bonzo platform is a foolproof alternative to clunky technologies that can be disruptive to busy mortgage advisors. It only takes two weeks for most lenders to integrate Sales Boomerang loan opportunity alerts with Bonzo's marketing automation campaigns and add their own voice for personalized customer outreach. Once activated, Bonzo lets mortgage advisors know the instant someone in their database 'raises their hand' by triggering an alert through Sales Boomerang.

"By harnessing relevant data to create a how, why and when for borrower outreach, Sales Boomerang can help Bonzo users further personalize their communications to each individual customer," says Bonzo co-founder Jason Perkins. "Instead of wasting manpower on incessant marketing with no relevance to the individual borrower, lenders can activate this integration to add context to their outreach and create more meaningful client interactions."

Bonzo's omnichannel outreach is customized to the voice of each mortgage advisor, and is automatically sent within moments of a consumer 'raising their hand' and triggering a Sales Boomerang loan opportunity alert. A mortgage advisor is then notified through the Bonzo platform that a conversation was initiated with an individual in their database. When that lead responds, the advisor has easy access to their information, including Sales Boomerang alert history, and is prepared to take action right away. Bonzo's marketing campaigns and content can even be customized to user specifications, so mortgage advisors only reach out using a prospect's preferred method of communication.

"Our partnership with Bonzo will create bountiful opportunities for mortgage advisors by enabling automated outreach when someone in their database triggers an alert from Sales Boomerang," said Sales Boomerang Vice President of Product Mike Spotten. "With this added insight into a borrower's financial situation and contact history, mortgage advisors can focus on building lasting relationships with their prospects."

About Bonzo:

Bonzo is an automated sales engagement platform that seeks to make selling fun again by eliminating outreach and follow up for the modern salesperson. Bonzo combines the personality with automation in voicemail, text, email, and video messaging to create meaningful conversations at scale. The platform's renowned "5-minute" rule allows its users to accomplish anything within the platform in under 5-minutes and get back to having more conversations with those that impact their business most. Bonzo's core belief is that salespeople should spend more time creating conversations, and less time on the organization of data.

Sales Boomerang teams up with OptifiNow to offer lenders an integrated experience for mortgage customer engagement

BALTIMORE, Md. -- Sales Boomerang, the mortgage industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, today announced its application programming interface (API) integration with OptifiNow, a cloud-based sales, marketing and customer relationship management (CRM) platform. The integration ensures accurate borrower data flows seamlessly and automatically between the two systems, giving lenders more time to focus on nurturing borrower relationships and exceeding sales goals.

Sales Boomerang monitors mortgage lenders' customer and prospect databases to notify them exactly when a prospect or past customer is ready for a new loan. Sales Boomerang loan opportunity alerts may be triggered by market factors, like interest rate changes and home price appreciation, and consumer behaviors, such as listing a home for sale or improving one's credit score.

OptifiNow is a cloud-based sales and management software platform designed to meet the evolving needs of today's sales force. Optifinow's CRM is tightly integrated into its all-in-one platform of sales and marketing modules, giving users a simple end-to-end solution for managing all aspects of sales, marketing and business development.

Sales Boomerang's new integration with OptifiNow can be applied to any of the borrower intelligence platform's 11 unique loan opportunity alert offerings. When an opportunity alert is triggered by someone in a lender's database, that alert data is automatically ingested into OptifiNow. The CRM will then notify the loan originator (LO) associated with that customer and, depending on the user's specifications, automatically trigger personalized borrower outreach.

OptifiNow's CRM also generates a history of alerts for each prospect in a lender's CRM database. Synchronizing Sales Boomerang's real-time opportunity alerts with OptifiNow's CRM offers LOs a more nuanced understanding of a prospect's financial situation and enables lenders to build custom borrower data reports based on Sales Boomerang alert history.

"OptifiNow's intuitive, all-in-one CRM platform leverages Sales Boomerang's borrower intelligence to create a more streamlined lead generation experience," said Sales Boomerang Vice President of Product Mike Spotten. "Activating the integration between our systems will help our shared users harness the power of their database to ensure no borrower gets left behind at the closing table."

"We are thrilled to add Sales Boomerang to our ecosystem of best-in-class mortgage technology partners," said OptifiNow Vice President Sales Linn Cook. "The integration of OptifiNow and Sales Boomerang will drive greater borrower data integrity for our mutual lender clients, freeing them from the tedious process of manually gathering and tracking borrower information."

Sales Boomerang’s Reverse Mortgage Alert helps lenders bring timely home-equity opportunities to more homeowners

BALTIMORE, Md. -- Sales Boomerang, the mortgage industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, today announced the launch of Reverse Mortgage Alert, a new addition to its pantheon of automated borrower intelligence products, as well as significant enhancements to the company's existing Rate Alert product.

The all-new Reverse Mortgage Alert notifies lenders when a past borrower or prospect would be a good candidate for a home-equity conversion mortgage (HECM), also known as a reverse mortgage. Sales Boomerang's Reverse Mortgage Alerts helps lenders identify contacts who could benefit from a reverse mortgage based on their current age and accumulated home equity. With American homeowners sitting on historic levels of untapped home equity, Reverse Mortgage Alert gives lenders the head start they need to connect with reverse mortgage prospects ahead of the competition.

Reverse mortgages include both HUD-insured and proprietary home-equity loan products that offer unique ways for older homeowners - generally, those age 62 and above - to tap their home equity. Reverse mortgages can be used to finance the purchase of a new home, make improvements to an existing home, pay for long-term care or medical expenses, or supplement a homeowner's retirement income, among other purposes.

"With untapped home equity at an all-time high, this latest expansion to our award-winning line of automated borrower intelligence and retention alerts is extremely timely," said Sales Boomerang Vice President of Product Mike Spotten. "By activating Reverse Mortgage Alerts, ​Sales Boomerang users can build healthier loan pipelines while helping customers access loan options they may otherwise have learned about from a competitor - or perhaps not have learned about at all."

Sales Boomerang has also enhanced its existing Rate Alert. A new feature enables users to limit the frequency of alerts they receive. In addition, a tighter integration with Optimal Blue eliminates the need for lenders to manually update their rates in Sales Boomerang; instead, lenders receive timely and accurate Rate Alerts based on Optimal Blue Mortgage Market Indices™. For more information about Sales Boomerang's Rate Watch and Reverse Mortgage alert offerings, contact your client success representative or email sales@salesboomerang.com.

ACNM Reaffirms Opposition to Legislative Threats to Abortion Care

SILVER SPRING, Md. -- American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) is committed to people having unfettered access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care services, including abortion care, that are readily available, affordable, and guided by objective evidence-based information. Given this position, ACNM is dismayed by the failure of the United States Supreme Court to block the implementation of Texas Senate Bill 8, legislation that allows for the ban of abortions (which would include cases of rape or incest) as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

This decision sets in motion a dangerous precedent of upending the protections afforded under Roe v. Wade by allowing the most restrictive abortion law to go into effect in the second largest state in the country.

ACNM opposes legislative threats to abortion care. ACNM President, Cathy Collins-Fulea states, "ACNM continues to stand by our position that as midwives, we trust our patients as the experts of their own well-being and support each person's right to self-determination, access to comprehensive health information, and active participation in all aspects of an individualized plan of care."

The ACNM Code of Ethics mandates that midwives engage in the process of non-coercive, evidence-based informed consent and shared decision-making. Therefore, we object to any legislation and/or regulation that interferes with the patient-provider relationship.

"ACNM is committed to individual patient autonomy across the spectrum of reproductive health, including abortion. This commitment includes advocating to keep abortion access unconditionally safe and legal for all people midwives serve, but especially for vulnerable populations with limited resources and unequal access to quality healthcare," stated ACNM CEO Katrina Holland.

American College of Nurse-Midwives actively stands together with our other colleagues in sexual and reproductive health care and social justice advocates as we voice our strong objection to the erosion of bodily autonomy and access to essential health care services, including abortion care.
