MISMO, the mortgage industry’s standards organization, has been named a 2021 winner of HousingWire’s Tech100 Mortgage award. The award criteria were based on technology innovation and impact within the mortgage market.

MISMO eMortgage standards provide a framework for implementing all aspects of the digital mortgage process. MISMO’s submission focused on three innovative eMortgage initiatives: remote online notarization (RON) standards to further the use of audio-visual communications devices to notarize documents, RON certifications to support the integrity and scalability of eMortgages and MISMO SMART Docs®, which provide a technical specification and framework for representing documents in an electronic format. All eNotes are MISMO SMART Docs.

“Industry professionals use MISMO standards every time they originate a mortgage whether they realize it or not,” said Seth Appleton, President of MISMO. “This award recognizes the essential role that MISMO plays role as the central point for collaboration between all industry participants, allowing them to speak the same language and tackle the industry’s toughest business issues. We are pleased for this acknowledgement of our role in advancing the industry’s digital future.”
