February 2023 — There have been a number of exciting advancements made in mortgage technology recently to help better streamline the lending process, and many more are on the horizon. With the housing industry in turmoil due to high rates and low inventory, companies are finding new ways to forge ahead and find profits in 2021 — and mortgage technology is one area they’re betting on. Take Ice Mortgage Technologies, for example, which plans to capitalize on cross-selling its tech products to clients, large home lending banks investing in their legacy infrastructure to help drum up business this year.
