Currently it takes the same amount of time to process an average American mortgage as it does to walk nonstop from Manhattan to San Francisco. Talk about getting your steps in. This is the kind of technology – or lack thereof – that the mortgage industry is dealing with daily. Papercuts are a real concern. We have even heard rumors of fax machines and whiteout. Still no actual dinosaur sightings, but we are ever vigilant. Ready to roll up your sleeves and help us conquer the last frontier of fintech? At Xpanse, we are working to disrupt an $11 trillion industry. Yep, you read that right - $11 trillion with a “t”. If the US mortgage industry was its own sovereign nation, it would be the third largest in the world by GDP. Suffice to say, we are building to scale. What are we building? Our SaaS platform will power the mortgage industry and its relationships with the tens of thousands of third-party providers that are integral to the mortgage process. Leveraging automation, real-time intelligence, big data, and analytics we are changing the way borrowers, lenders, servicers, and service providers take care of business.
