We have been aggressively capturing market share with our industry leading Clarocity Platform and our highly innovative next generation valuation products such as MVPro appraisal and BPO Merge. Through successful implementation, testing and actual production with several lenders, servicers and GSE clients, our innovative products are outperforming traditional appraisal while greatly reducing cost in time and in dollars.
