The judges went on to say, “Cogent has created industry-specific sampling methodologies … and educated quality control managers, senior executives, investors and regulators about the benefits of their use.  By focusing on process improvement across the mortgage value chain, Cogent has provided lenders the tools they need to identify process failures, weigh their potential impact on risk and profitability, and take action.

“By using its statistical quality control techniques, Cogent stresses that lenders have enjoyed the cost savings that come with improved quality as well as lowering the cost of performing quality control. As a result, Cogent QC has enabled lenders to transform QC functionality from a cost center to a profit center. In that regard, Cogent’s impact on the mortgage industry has been transformative.”

Cogent has been recognized by Mortgage Technology five times, having also received the Fix-It Award in 2003, Top 100 Vendor in 2005, Top 25 Vendor in 2006 and finalist in the Lasting Impact Award in 2009.
