“We are always looking for ways to make lenders’ jobs simpler and partnering with Calyx presented a great opportunity to share the benefits of FirstClose ONE,” said Tedd Smith, chief executive officer and co-founder of FirstClose. “We always enjoy working with other innovative companies that recognize the need to constantly be improving efficiencies and we are honored they chose us to help them accomplish that.”
