Ellie Mae Completes MortgageCEO Acquisition

Ellie Mae® (NYSE:ELLI), a leading provider of enterprise level, on-demand automated solutions for the residential mortgage industry, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of substantially all the assets of ARG Interactive, LLC (dba MortgageCEO) (“MortgageCEO”), a leader in on-demand customer relationship management (CRM), and marketing automation solutions for the mortgage industry.

MortgageCEO’s Software-as-a-Service offering provides mortgage originators an “all-in-one” CRM and marketing platform with lead management, sales automation, email marketing, builder and Realtor® referral marketing and mobile capabilities.

MortgageCEO is currently integrated into Encompass® through Ellie Mae’s Software Development Kit (SDK). Ellie Mae intends to strengthen the integration between MortgageCEO and Encompass in 2014.

“With shrinking refinance volumes and a major shift to a purchase market, originators will need to fully leverage their referral sources and deepen relationships with existing customers, partners and prospects in order to compete and succeed,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “Employing a well-designed CRM and marketing automation system like MortgageCEO allows originators to efficiently ramp up their marketing and improve how they generate and nurture referral relationships. It also allows lenders to easily demonstrate that the proper institutional controls and safeguards are being applied when marketing to consumers.”

Jaret Christopher, founder and CEO of MortgageCEO, added, “By joining forces with Ellie Mae, we can expand our shared vision of helping lenders automate the origination process and deliver the best software solutions to our customers. Strengthening MortgageCEO’s integration with Encompass will help lenders improve compliance and customer service, reduce sales and marketing costs and take their origination efforts to the next level with just one system.”
