NextAce & TitleEDGESM Recognized in Local & National Competitions
Anaheim Hills, Calif. – February 22, 2006 – NextAce today announced that the company and its Title EDGE automated title examination and report generation software application and service have received finalist recognition in the Los Angeles-based Entretec award competition as well as from the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA).
Entretec (www.pasadenaentretech.com), a leading strategic partnering and entrepreneurial business support association serving Los Angeles, together with PricewaterhouseCoopers, named NextAce one of six finalists for its third annual Entrepreneurship Award 2006. The winner will be announced on March 21 at an awards dinner featuring keynote speaker Walter S. Mossberg, the notable Wall Street Journal author and columnist.
SIIA’s 21st Annual Codie Awards, often referred to as the “Oscars of the software industry,” recently granted Title EDGE a finalist position in the competition’s “Best Vertical Market Business Content Solution” category. Through a unique combination of journalist and peer review, the Codie Awards celebrate outstanding achievement and vision in software, digital content, and education technology industries recognizing 71 categories of outstanding products and services, as well as corporate excellence and philanthropy. This year’s 348 finalists chosen from a record-breaking 1,026 nominations will be acknowledged at an awards gala on May 16.
Title EDGE has quickly gained industry attention due to its fast delivery of completed preliminary reports and commitments on average in less than 15 minutes. The title customer in turn has the ability to deliver their product to their customer in as little as an hour, reducing a process that typically takes 48 hours to five days.
There is no doubt that our growing base of title customers are realizing significant competitive advantage over those continuing to use current manual methods for producing preliminary reports and commitments,” said NextAce CEO Don Cantral. “We are honored to receive this recognition from industry and business peers as they affirm our tremendous achievement to date and NextAce’s continued commitment to quality software and service."
NextAce is a privately held technology company that provides software and services primarily to the title insurance and mortgage lender industries. Its Title EDGE process was established in 2003 to assist title companies in streamlining the production of preliminary reports and commitments and is used by title companies servicing 38 California counties and counties in five other states, including: Arizona, Florida, New York, Texas, and Washington.
