2023 HW Tech Trendsetter: Scott Payne

Scott Payne

As the former founder and CEO of SDP Solutions — recently acquired by Shape Software — and host of the Lead Management Masterminds podcast, Scott Payne has collaborated with more than 100 clients on lead management projects, providing consulting and innovative solutions. As part of a long-term consulting agreement with GoodLeap (formerly LoanPal), he earned ICE Mortgage Technology’s 2021 Innovation Award for Outstanding Customer Engagement.

With a dedicated passion for lead management, Payne guides his clients to achieve better results through his savvy recommendations and creative strategies. In fact, several clients point to Payne’s expert guidance and implementations as a contributing factor in their survival over the past year’s challenging mortgage market conditions. 

Following the recent acquisition by Shape Software, Payne has been named chief product officer and president of Shape Professional Services. In this capacity, he will bring unmatched expertise and continue to foster ongoing growth for Shape’s extensive user base of more than 78,000.

Through SDP Solutions and now Shape Software, Payne regularly conducts thorough assessments of the client’s current operations and analyzes key performance indicators. This forms the basis for setting clear, measurable business objectives. Payne then delivers a customized strategic plan, optimizing processes and workflows while integrating cutting-edge solutions and technologies.

Payne demonstrates his value by increasing ROI and showing the positive impact of his innovations that lead to sustained business growth for his clients.
