Smarsh Named to the 2016 HousingWire Tech 100

Smarsh has been named to the HW TECH100™, HousingWire Magazine’s list of the housing economy’s 100 most innovative technology companies!

Making this list is a special honor, because the HW TECH100™ is the only list of tech innovation that captures the entire U.S. housing economy, from real estate to mortgage lending, servicing, and investments. Making the cut puts Smarsh into unique territory as a tech leader in the housing economy.

HW recognized Smarsh for The Archiving Platform™, which allows lenders to proactively capture and monitor social media and website content to identify potentially risky communications. This type of technology is especially critical for lenders who want to be accessible to consumers, efficient in their operations, and compliant with regulations.




Archiving of social media communications content is critical for companies in regulated industries like lending, where significant consequences, including large fines, can result from its improper use. Smarsh provides an archiving platform that allows lenders to proactively capture and monitor social media and website content to identify potentially risky communications. Preparing for potential litigation, responding to regulatory audits and examinations, or conducting internal investigations are all good examples of when a company might need to quickly find and produce specific information. The company’s platform captures all social media in its original and unaltered format as it happens, even if it gets deleted or modified later.


When evaluating companies for the list, the editorial team viewed innovation along six discrete dimensions, including market influence, market potential, unique solution, growth, elegant implementation, and “something else entirely – the ‘it’ factor.”

“It’s incredible to see the universe of tech options now available to our industry,” said HousingWire Magazine Editor Sarah Wheeler. “Some of the best and brightest minds are clearly working in our space to address the extraordinary challenges our industry is facing.”
