And the nominees are…

The Ellie Mae Innovation Award (formerly known as the Hall of Fame) are given each year to mortgage lenders and partners that have distinguished themselves in their innovative use of Ellie Mae solutions.

This award recognizes the best and brightest companies in the mortgage industry who are using Ellie Mae's Digital Lending Platform and solutions to originate more loans, lower origination costs and reduce the time to close, all while ensuring the highest levels of compliance, quality and efficiency.

We also ask our lenders to help select their favorite Ellie Mae Partner for the Lenders’ Choice for Innovative Service Provider Award. This accolade recognizes partners within our network who developed innovative solutions to help our mutual customers succeed.

Nominations are collected in the Fall and winners are celebrated during Experience.
