Ellie Mae Selected as Finalist for Mortgage Technology Magazine's Release of the Year Award

PLEASANTON, CA—October 13, 2009—Ellie Mae®, the award-winning software and service provider offering comprehensive business solutions for mortgage bankers, brokers, and other mortgage originators, was selected as a finalist in the annual competition for Mortgage Technology magazine’s prestigious Release of the Year Award. Ellie Mae was nominated for this award for its recently launched Encompass360™, the company’s all-new comprehensive mortgage management solution, which was released in July 2009.  Each year, Mortgage Technology magazine presents one company with the Release of the Year Award in recognition of a new technology product, platform, alliance or initiative that seems likely to have the broadest impact on mortgage lending going forward.

“Encompass360 was designed to not only address the challenges of today’s market, but also to anticipate and address the industry’s needs in the coming years,” says Jonathan Corr, Ellie Mae’s chief strategy officer.  “For example, Encompass360 helps customers keep fully compliant with the upcoming changes to RESPA and other regulations, something we anticipated early on in its development. It’s examples like this that demonstrate how Ellie Mae has been redefining and responding to the mortgage industry since inception in 1998. We’re proud and pleased to be recognized for our continuing pursuit of excellence and contributions in elevating industry standards.”

Since its launch earlier this year, Encompass360 has been adopted by over 1,000 lenders and more than 15,000 end users, many of whom cite the system as a segment-defining solution.

In addition to reaching the final round for the Release of the Year Award, Ellie Mae has also been honored with awards from organizations such as Inc. magazine, Mortgage Technology magazine, Inman News, the East Bay Business Times, and the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. The Mortgage Technology Awards ceremony was held on October 11, during the opening night of the 2009 Mortgage Bankers Association Annual Conference in San Diego.
