Finicity Wins Best in Show at Digital Mortgage 2019

Company Demonstrates Breakthrough Solution for Verification of Income and Employment

LAS VEGAS — Sept. 25, 2019 – Finicity announced today that it won the LendingTree Innovation Challenge Best in Show award at Source Media’s Digital Mortgage Conference 2019 for its Verification of Income and Employment (VOIE) with TXVerify™ solution. 

For the second year in a row, the LendingTree Innovation Challenge highlighted innovation in the digital mortgage ecosystem at the conference which was held September 23-24 at the Wynn Las Vegas. The challenge featured 36 live demos showcasing the mortgage industry’s most innovative digital technologies.

“We are truly thrilled by the reception of our VOIE solution,” said Steve Smith, CEO and co-founder of Finicity. “This award is another acknowledgement that income and employment verification was ripe for innovation. Until now, no one had figured out how to deliver an automated solution that addressed the majority of the market.”

A panel of three judges scored all the demo presentations. Finicity received the high honor by receiving a score of nine out of 10 from all three judges for its inventive approach to verification of income and employment.  Additionally, attendees were able to weigh in through an audience voting process. 

Finicity’s VOIE solution digitally extracts a borrower’s pay statement data from a paystub and then cross-verifies that key data with direct deposit transactions within their bank accounts. Enabled by its patent-pending TXVerify™ technology, this detailed vetting process creates a real-time picture of an applicant’s income and employment for fast, accurate reports. The solution does this using consumer-permissioned data – direct from banks – along with a scan, photo or PDF of a borrower’s paystubs for the most current and accurate verification. This process significantly shifts the current paradigm from a mostly manual process to one that is fully digital, all while reducing fraud and increasing confidence in the underwriting process.

Sharing the Best in Show award this year was CoreLogic.
