PLANO, TX--(Marketwired - October 21, 2015) - Optimal Blue, the premier cloud-based provider of enterprise lending services to the mortgage industry, was recently announced as a winner of the 2015 Dallas 100™ Award for the second consecutive year. Co-founded by the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship in 1990, the Dallas 100™ is an annual event that identifies and honors the 100 fastest-growing privately held companies in the Dallas area.

The SMU Cox School of Business is now celebrating its 25th year of recognizing the area's top 100 entrepreneurial success stories. They cite entrepreneurial recipients as "engines of growth" for their ability to build businesses and create jobs as fast as large companies eliminate them. To qualify for the Dallas 100™, a company must meet a number of criteria based on its legal status, location, sales history, credit report, and character.

Known as an innovator in technology for over a decade, Optimal Blue pioneered the most advanced product eligibility and pricing engine (PPE) available within the mortgage industry today, providing lenders, originators and consumers with advanced decision-making and automated workflow capabilities. Optimal Blue has continued to further expand its technology offerings through its secondary marketing, consumer direct and point-of-sale, data and analytics, and real-time compliance services. Optimal Blue's enterprise class suite of products and services now connects hundreds of investors with more than 1,500 financial institutions, and currently touches about 1 of every 4 loans nationally.

"We are honored to be selected again by The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at the SMU Cox School of Business for this prestigious award. Awards like this aren't won by accident, they reflect the steadfast, continued commitment to excellence that our employees exemplify daily," said Dr. Ivan Darius, Co-CEO of Optimal Blue. "Our ability to continue building a highly-skilled and diverse work force locally is enabled by institutions such as SMU producing the graduates that make this possible.

"The formal awards ceremony celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Dallas 100™ will take place in November at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
