JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – March 25, 2021 – Today, Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI) announced being named to the HousingWire’s 2021 HW Tech100 Awards, a premier listing of the most innovative and impactful technology companies in the mortgage and real estate industries. This year, Black Knight was recognized for its Rapid Analytics Platform (RAP), Expedite Close and REvolution Suite.
Black Knight’s RAP, which won in the HW Tech100 mortgage category, provides a unique, cloud-based data marketplace and decision-science studio that transforms the way organizations work with data and analytics. RAP enables users to immediately source Black Knight data, connect to other data sources, execute queries, create advanced analytics, and train machine-learning models – all within a single solution. Additionally, RAP offers an extensive catalogue of “out-of-the-box” analytics as well as a growing marketplace of datasets. The platform can be used for an unlimited number of applications, including portfolio retention strategy; equity analysis and valuation; prepayment and default analytics; performance benchmarking; and much more.
Expedite Close, Black Knight’s digital closing platform, was also recognized in the Tech100 mortgage category. This fulfillment-based solution helps lower real estate transaction costs while enabling settlement agents and consumers to easily collaborate, resulting in an improved customer experience. Additionally, for each real estate transaction, Expedite Close uses advanced intelligence to automatically select the best closing option – wet-sign, hybrid or a full digital closing. The solution guides borrowers through their closings, and integrates with eSign and eNotary tools to facilitate completely remote closings.
Black Knight’s REvolution Suite was recognized in the real estate category of the HW Tech100. The REvolution Suite provides appraisers and other valuation professionals with a seamless appraisal process from property inspection to report delivery. REvolution features several innovative solutions, including SCOUT, a cloud-based mobile property inspection app that supports safe, social distancing by enabling homeowners, inspectors, real estate agents, and appraisers to collect property data on a mobile device. REvolution helps create efficiencies in data collection, analysis and appraisal report delivery, and it can be integrated with lender and appraisal management company platforms.
According to a HousingWire press release, the Tech100 program grows more competitive each year and the applicants are increasingly impressive. “I’ve been involved in choosing Tech100 winners since we started the program in 2014, and every year it manages to get more competitive,” said HousingWire Editor and Chief Sarah Wheeler. “These companies are truly leading the way to a more innovative housing market!”
