Honoring Industry Innovation

Recognizing The Best Of The Best!

PROGRESS in Lending Association was formed to give industry thought leaders a voice. The right formula of technology combined with business strategy can come together to solve real industry problems. Now we’re going even further with the Innovations Program. The Innovations Awards Ceremony is always a great event. Read about which companies were named the Top Innovations of 2010, those companies that were just named the Top Innovations of 2011, those that were named the Top Innovations of 2012, those that were named the Top Innovations of 2013, those that were honored as the Top Innovations of 2014, and those that were honored as the Top Innovations of 2015.

As part of the Innovations Program we want to reward industry-changing innovations. For those companies or groups that have come together to do something truly game changing for the mortgage space, we want to recognize all that you do in order to change the industry for the better.

What are we looking for? We want to recognize innovations introduced into the mortgage market between January of 2016 to December of 2016 that truly changed the mortgage market for the better. As part of this competition, we’re not only looking to recognize a new release, although we certainly don’t want to discourage the entry of innovative new releases that hit the market in 2016. We also want to reward companies and groups for doing creative things throughout 2016 that made a positive difference.

Understand that this is not a subjective competition. All applications will be scored on a weighted scale. We will be looking for the innovation’s overall industry significance, the originality of the innovation, 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. Find out more about our criteria.

How will we judge? This recognition will not be decided by mere industry onlookers, all seven industry experts that make up the PROGRESS in Lending Association executive team will act as judges and all will be given an equal say in how applications are evaluated. Learn more about our executive team. Applicants will be judged by industry peers who know the space inside and out, just like you do.

Award winners will be named at a ceremony to be held in Chicago, Illinois on March 26, 2017.
