DocuSign Delivers on Digital Closing Vision with Rooms for Mortgage Offering
Company announces DocuSign Rooms for Mortgage is entering into beta ahead of release next year WASHINGTON, Oct. 15, 2018 -- As part of its goal to make the home buying process digital from end to end, DocuSign today announced that its latest solution—DocuSign Rooms for Mortgage—will enter beta testing ahead of its general availability in the spring of next year. DocuSign Rooms for Mortgage is a secure, collaborative, compliant solution for lenders to support their residential lending process. The company, which offers the world's #1 e-signature solution as part of its broader System of Agreement Platform, shared the news at the annual Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) conference and expo in Washington D.C. And it marks what Georg Gerstenfeld, the general manager of global real estate solutions at DocuSign, believes is the final step in taking the mortgage process digital. "For years, we've seen widespread adoption of e-signatures across the home buying process—the ease of use, simplicity and time-savings can transform the experience for all parties, and that has led to more than 2.5 million real estate transactions being DocuSigned each year," said Gerstenfeld. "We've seen great success with DocuSign Rooms for Real Estate and wanted to expand this experience into our mortgage offering. DocuSign Rooms for Mortgage provides a single digital destination for the parties involved in buying and selling to come together, process and finalize the transaction." With more than 50 million homes in the US having a mortgage—and with the industry employing over a million people—DocuSign built a solution specifically to address the need for a better closing experience. Rooms for Mortgage will bring efficiencies to the process, enhance communication across all contributors, and support compliant transactions. "As a partner to 13 of the top 15 US financial services companies, we work hard to stay connected with our customers and share their vision for bringing a digital closing option to mortgage. Rooms for Mortgage not only offers this to DocuSign customers, but also helps complete the home buyer's experience. This means, from the borrower's first interaction with a potential lender all the way through to the settlement agent recording the deeds with the county, the process can be digital and compliant," added Gerstenfeld. DocuSign Rooms for Mortgage delivers a digital environment for the borrower, lender and settlement agent, and leverages DocuSign's broader suite of solutions for Digital Closing—including eSignature, eNotary, eNote, and eVault. It also facilitates several variants of the digital closing experience, depending on the what is legally-permissible in each state, and how digitally-advanced each party is: Slim Closing: A flexible, hybrid option that allows lenders to reduce the paperwork involved in closing by 70%. This solution combines eSignature and eNotarization, along with DocuSign connectors to leading mortgage systems. This option from DocuSign is used on a national scale at Guild Mortgage and Caliber Home Loans and will be made more powerful with Rooms for Mortgage. Full Digital Closing: DocuSign's Full Digital Closing solution delivers an entirely electronic mortgage, approved by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, leveraging the components of Slim Closing along with an eNote that is stored in an eVault. Guild Mortgage, a top-10 lender by purchase loan volume and ranked #1 "Highest Customer Satisfaction with Primary Mortgage Originations" by J.D. Power, is already partnering with DocuSign to deliver Slim Closing at scale. Lisa Klika, senior vice president and chief compliance officer at Guild, pioneered this implementation, stating "Our eClose option combines DocuSign's trusted, user-friendly e-signature technology that is already widely used in the industry with the personal touch Guild is known for in order to offer our customers a better lending experience," said Klika. "The Rooms for Mortgage launch marks an exciting time in our industry as we take another step closer to realizing a digital future." DocuSign Rooms for Mortgage will enter closed beta testing with a handful of key customers later this month. The beta is expected to last up to six months, after which all learnings will be integrated and the final Docusign Rooms for Mortgage will hit general availability in spring next year.

DocuSign Drives Innovation in Fall '18 Release
New capabilities include Responsive Signing, Smart Sections, mobile document scanning, Intelligent Insights, and Ethereum blockchain integration SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12, 2018 -- As part of its continued commitment to help organizations connect and automate how they prepare, sign, act-on, and manage agreements, DocuSign today announced the general availability of its Fall '18 Release, showcasing innovation enhancements across the board. The DocuSign Fall '18 Release includes updates to the company's eSignature solution and its broader System of Agreement Platform—the most significant of which include Smart Sections, Intelligent Insights, mobile document scanning, and an Ethereum blockchain integration. "The Fall '18 Release builds on the exciting announcements we made around our System of Agreement strategy at our annual customer and partner event, Momentum, in June this year," explained Ron Hirson, chief product officer at DocuSign. "It focuses on updates and enhancements across all four stages of the agreement lifecycle—prepare, sign, act and manage." Smart Sections adds onto the Responsive Signing functionality announced in the Summer '18 Release. Responsive Signing automatically converts a PDF into HTML so it's easy to read on any size screen with any orientation. Smart Sections then takes this several steps further by defining collapsible sections, page breaks, custom formatting options, and more. For longer and complex agreements, this additional structure and interactivity delivers a further streamlined experience. The mobile document scanning feature enables customers to capture, crop, resize and add multiple pages directly from an iOS or Android device before importing into DocuSign to send and sign. This is useful in both personal and business environments—when on the move, or when a professional scanner is not readily available. Intelligent Insights—powered by one of DocuSign's partners, Seal Software—goes beyond keywords to 'understand' concepts in agreement clauses, as a human analyst would. For example, it would recongnize that a clause about Internet cookies related to privacy, even if the word 'privacy' was absent. The same technology can automatically classify and compare how different agreements handle various topics, so customers can spot anomalies, risks and opportunities quickly. To this end, also available is an add-on to Intelligent Insights, the GDPR Compliance Pack powered by Seal. It is designed to help companies meet the European Union's GDPR regulations by analyzing agreements for risk and exposure. Lastly, while DocuSign can verify the signatures and integrity of any DocuSigned document natively, there is increasing interest in accessing similar evidence via blockchain technology. DocuSign is therefore including a pre-built integration with the Ethereum blockchain in the Fall '18 Release. "For customers that opt in, DocuSign will compute a one-way cryptographic hash fingerprint for every completed transaction, and write the value to the Ethereum blockchain—the most popular blockchain for smart contracts in our view," explained Hirson. "This hash acts as tamper-proof evidence for the transaction, and enables any completed document to be validated independently. And by using the Ethereum blockchain, that third party evidence for a transaction is accessible to anyone." For more information on the DocuSign Fall '18 Release, visit the blog. About DocuSign, Inc. DocuSign helps organizations connect and automate how they prepare, sign, act-on, and manage agreements. As part of its cloud-based System of Agreement Platform, DocuSign offers eSignature—the world's #1 way to sign electronically on practically any device, from almost anywhere, at any time. Today, more than 425,000 customers and hundreds of millions of users in over 180 countries use DocuSign to accelerate the process of doing business and simplify people's lives.

DocuSign acquires tech rights and hires team from machine learning startup, Appuri
SEATTLE, Dec. 19, 2017 -- To help enhance the advanced analytics within its products and business processes, DocuSign – the global e-signature and digital transaction management leader – today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the IP rights and hire employees from Seattle-based machine learning and data platform startup, Appuri. Under the terms of the deal, DocuSign acquired a license to Appuri's source code, along with the rights to advance the technology independently. The majority of Appuri's team – including the founders, Damon Danieli and Bilal Aslam – will also join DocuSign's product development group. The deal resulted from a pilot project that DocuSign and Appuri had been running together over the past few months. DocuSign will now integrate Appuri's machine learning and artificial intelligence technology directly into the DocuSign platform, and Appuri's products will no longer be sold separately. "As an early adopter of Appuri's machine-learning-based audience segmentation technology, we had an opportunity to get to know the people and underlying platform developed by the company. It quickly became clear that there was a good technology and team fit – one that was consistent with our product plans, and one that would deliver great value to our customers," explained Tom Casey, SVP of engineering at DocuSign. Danieli, now a vice president of engineering at DocuSign, explained that Appuri was founded to help companies to engage their customers the right way at the right time – from enabling more intelligent front-line conversations to delivering perfectly-targeted marketing messages and product experiences. "As we began working with DocuSign, it was clear there was an opportunity for us to bring the capabilities of our own platform to a much broader global audience. The technology strategy and product development culture is a great fit for us. That's why this deal makes perfect sense, and our team is incredibly excited about our future as part of DocuSign," said Danieli.

DocuSign Bolsters Functionality with Spring '17 Release
SAN FRANCISCO, March 7, 2017 -- As part of its commitment to help organizations around the world to transform paper-based processes into fast, easy and secure digital transactions, DocuSign – the global eSignature and Digital Transaction Management (DTM) leader – made the DocuSign Spring '17 Release available today. The release includes enhancements and updates to the company's eSignature solution and broader DTM platform – the most significant of which include deeper integrations with Google Docs, the availability of the eNotary feature in eight US states, the personal eHanko signing option in Japan and the availability of DocuSign Payments. "The Spring '17 Release builds on our largest product update ever in December last year, where we shipped more new features than in the last several quarters combined," said Ron Hirson, chief product officer at DocuSign. "Today's release expands our exceptional user experiences, while further empowering industries, customers and partners to go digital." New for the Spring '17 Release is the DocuSign for Google Docs add-on. This new integration enables users to sign, send and manage documents directly from Google Docs – saving time by conveniently starting a DocuSign workflow directly from the Google Docs editor, or from Docs' recent documents. This includes the automatic saving of signed documents to Google Drive, as well as Gmail integration for sending them – one of the most requested features. On the real estate front, most homebuyers and agents find the paper-based home financing and closing process cumbersome and lengthy. That's why DocuSign created its new eNotary feature, so senders can request electronic notarial acts and Notaries can host in-person signing sessions. Released for early access in the DocuSign Winter '17 Release in December and generally available this month in the DocuSign Spring '17 Release, the new eNotary feature eliminates the need to print, scan or mail closing documents. All actions can be performed within the DocuSign platform, including applying a seal and exporting a notary log. These in-person eNotarizations can be performed via DocuSign in Idaho, Indiana, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York and Washington (in addition to North Carolina, which has been available since 2014). For Japan, the adoption of eSignature has been influenced by the fact that signers are accustomed to using a Hanko stamp to represent their signature on paper documents. That's why DocuSign is launching the personal eHanko in the DocuSign Spring '17 Release, in partnership with Shachihata Inc. – a leading company in Japan's traditional hanko culture. It complements the basic eHanko functionality launched in December last year. And according to DocuSign Japan's vice president, Hayato Koeda, Japanese businesses and consumers will see tremendous benefit. "The advantages of digitization are more widely recognized today in Japan. However, traditional Japanese business customs including the process of affixing a seal remain, resulting in the persistent use of paper, which acts as a bottleneck to improving work efficiency," he explained. "By collaborating with Shachihata, we are providing a solution that makes it easier for Japanese companies to improve operational efficiency, compliance measures and customer experience. In Europe and the United States, many progressive companies have already undertaken the move towards digitization. With this solution, Japanese companies can also achieve digital transformation with completely paperless business operations." In addition to the above, DocuSign users around the world will benefit from other enhancements in the DocuSign Spring '17 Release, including: DocuSign Payments: on the heels of US availability in February this year, DocuSign Payments will be enabled for customers in the UK, Canada and Australia this month, offering support for payments in GBP, CAD and AUD currencies. New DocuSign Experience: Document Visibility – this makes it easier for senders to control document access by limiting who can view documents in an envelope. Shared Template Folders – administrators can now create and organize folders to share templates with users and groups. Senders can now quickly locate and use the templates shared with them. Intelligent Document Recognition – this ensures tags, recipients and authentication are matched automatically between documents and templates. Fax In/Fax Out – this enables senders to deliver an agreement to a fax recipient or receive a signature via fax. For more information on the DocuSign Spring '17 Release, visit the blog at http://docusign.com/blog/docusign-spring-17-release About DocuSign, Inc.DocuSign® is changing how business gets done by empowering anyone to send, sign and manage agreements anytime, anywhere, on any device with trust and confidence.

DocuSign to Make eMortgage a Reality with New Platform Enhancements
BOSTON, Oct. 25, 2016 -- At the annual Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) conference and expo here today, DocuSign – the global eSignature and Digital Transaction Management (DTM) leader – announced a series of expanded features that will allow lenders and title companies to complete a mortgage 100% digitally. Known as eMortgage, the new service will empower lenders and their clients to electronically-sign the mortgage paperwork associated with the more than 12 million real estate documents and 2.5 million real estate transactions already DocuSigned every year. The news marks an expansion of DocuSign's 'lead to close' strategy for the real estate industry, first announced by the company's Chairman and CEO Keith Krach in July this year. The strategy entailed DocuSign making its biggest investment in the real estate industry to date. "DocuSign's vision is to make the home buying process fully digital, from lead to close. DocuSign has transformed several aspects of home buying, but enabling a seamless, digital mortgage remained a paper-burdened experience for home buyers and sellers. Today's expanded investments in eNotary demonstrate our commitment to making a completely paperless eMortgage reality," explained Georg Gerstenfeld, general manager: Global Real Estate Solutions, DocuSign. "This is against the backdrop of the real estate industry's widespread adoption of DocuSign, and is helping to add more than 130,000 new users to the DocuSign Global Trust Network every day. eMortgage is a natural next step to simplifying the end-to-end experience." Today's announcement centers around two key areas: eNotary – this enhancement ensures that in-person eNotarizations can now be performed via DocuSign in Florida and Washington (in addition to North Carolina, which has been available since 2014). It is also expected that more than ten other states could be added before the end of the year. With eNotary, there is no need to print, scan or mail closing documents – all actions can be performed within the DocuSign platform, including applying a seal and exporting a notary log. Fannie Mae – reflecting the potential for the DocuSign platform to help speed the adoption of the broader eMortgage process, the company (with eOriginal as a partner) is seeking certification as an official Fannie Mae eMortgage Technology Service Provider – a certification that only a handful of technology organizations have been granted by the mortgage lender. Certification is expected by the end of year. Several of DocuSign's partners and customers have thrown their weight behind today's announcement – including Fannie Mae and Accenture Mortgage Cadence. "Fannie Mae is pleased that DocuSign is undergoing technical compliance testing with us for delivery of eMortgage loans, and is seeking approval to join our eMortgage Technology Service Provider listing," said Cindy McKissock, Vice President of Customer Digital Experience, Fannie Mae. "Supporting our customers' transition to digital closings is a priority for us – and we expect DocuSign's platform to help remove barriers and obstacles to the adoption of eNotes, thereby increasing usage across the industry." For its part, Mortgage Cadence, an Accenture Company – an existing DocuSign partner – is excited about this focus on eMortgages. "Mortgage Cadence is committed to making digital mortgages a reality. Combined with DocuSign's digital mortgage strategy, these additional enhancements align well with our own vision to provide the last lending solution our customers will ever need," said Jim Rosen, Document Center Product Manager at Mortgage Cadence. "Today, lenders and title companies tend to rely on paper or hybrid processes to complete loans," explained DocuSign's Chief Product Officer, Ron Hirson. "We are supporting our Real Estate customers for today's launch by delivering new eNotary and eNote features to our DTM platform – that helps more organizations move to a paperless process that is fully auditable, less prone to errors, and results in faster closings." The enhanced features are slated to come to market towards the end of the year. For more information, visit www.docusign.com.

DocuSign Achieves Certification with xDTM Standard
SAN FRANCISCO, April 1, 2016 -- On the heels of the xDTM Standard Association making the first version of the Digital Transaction Management (DTM) Standard available to the public last week, DocuSign, the eSignature and DTM leader, today announced it has finalized its compliance with the xDTM Standard. Developed by the organization's participants over the past two years, the Standard provides in-depth guidelines and best practices that a DTM provider should address to create a trusted online environment for digital transactions. It also establishes eight core requirements for trust and reliability that a DTM provider must adhere to in order to be compliant. DocuSign's compliance with the Standard provides greater transparency for companies considering its solutions, by highlighting the practices that DocuSign employs to ensure quality in digital transactions, which is of critical importance, given that DocuSign just announced major growth in its customer base – over 225,000 customers and 85 million users generating nearly 950,000 transactions per day. "As the demand grows, it's critical that businesses and consumers can trust that the DTM provider follows best practices to protect their transactions and ensure that they can be securely retrieved when needed," explained Reggie Davis, general counsel and chief legal officer, DocuSign. "xDTM certification provides a verifiable level of assurance for our customers." According to the standard, the eight areas a DTM provider needs to successfully address include: Security – features best-in-class technical protection, highly secure access, and proactive protection policies Assurance – provides assurance that xDTM transactions are compliant with applicable laws Privacy – allows a person or company to reveal information selectively, at their discretion Validity – has a reliable, transparent and verifiable chain of custody, and a digitally signed, tamper-evident audit trail Availability – ensures that transactions are always accessible and obtainable, high performing during periods of peak use, resilient across disaster scenarios, and free of scheduled offline maintenance Scalability – accepts increased volume without impacting performance due to ongoing capacity modeling and proactive lifecycle management Universality – functions across heterogeneous environments/devices and is accessible worldwide Interoperability – works across collaborative services environments and includes integration guidelines and APIs "Achieving compliance is a significant accomplishment for DocuSign," added Davis. "Our goal is to help change how business gets done by enabling organizations and businesses to transact online with confidence – and adopting the standard demonstrates our commitment to making it safer and easier for all of our customers to embrace digital transaction management."

DocuSign Empowers Agents and Brokers to Manage Deals From Listing to Close 100% Digitally
SAN FRANCISCO and SAN DIEGO, November 12, 2015 — NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® ANNUAL CONFERENCE — With 2.7 million real estate transactions closed annually, DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign®) extended its leadership in transaction management and eSignatures with enhancements to its Broker Edition product. New functionality includes a task dashboard, mobile tools, extended zipLogix forms integration, and back-office integration via a new partnership with Lone Wolf —all to simplify transactions and protect data for real estate professionals and their clients. "DocuSign is a trusted partner that brokers and REALTORS® count on every day to protect their data and manage their transactions from listing to close," said Glenn Shimkus, vice president, Global Real Estate Products at DocuSign. "We're delivering the visibility, compliance and control that brokers need, along with access and mobility for agents—all in a highly secure, easy-to-use platform—so real estate professionals can manage and close deals faster to best serve their clients." Updated Broker Edition for Compliance and Visibility Based on extensive customer feedback, DocuSign has made continuous improvements to DocuSign Transaction Rooms, Broker Edition, delivering smooth integration and greater depth of features than other industry offerings. With DocuSign Transaction Rooms, brokers have visibility into all transactions, across all agents, including: Brokerage Management: Users can set up their brokerages with office and administrative team access, enabling support staff to manage transactions on behalf of agents, as needed. Data Integration: The Broker Edition will link transaction data from zipForm, such as list prices, listing expiration dates and seller information to DocuSign Transaction Rooms – all in a secure environment. Compliance: The Broker Edition identifies optional and required tasks and documents, while providing an approval process so managers can approve or decline tasks and documents at key stages in the process. Mobile Convenience via Tablets, Smart Phones and Apple Watch for REALTORS® On the Go With more than 90% of REALTORS® communicating with clients via mobile devices, productivity tools that travel with brokers and agents are a must. DocuSign leads the industry with mobile applications designed natively for each platform, now including Apple Watch, so that the mobile experience is highly responsive, intuitive and secure. Enhancements include: Mobile Tasks: DocuSign's extensive tasks functionality will be accessible via most major mobile devices, enabling users to track to-do's, mark tasks as complete and send reminders directly from their smart phone, tablet and even their Apple Watch. Mobile Signatures: DocuSign enables in-person signing on tablets—with even more information, stronger security, and greater ease-of-use than paper-based signing. Agents can take a picture of the person signing and include a map of where the signing took place, making both part of the transaction history and the legally-enforceable audit trail. Intelligent Task Management DocuSign's Broker Edition now includes a Task dashboard, a powerful new way for brokers to manage their business and customize their team's workflow. Also accessible via the web, the dashboard enables brokers to access a comprehensive list of everything requiring attention, from past-due documents and transaction approvals, to other tasks that don't require paperwork. Task management is simplified via brokerage-created rules and built-in intelligence. For example, if a broker enters a task to ensure buyers complete a home inspection five days prior to a contingency deadline, the system automatically accesses the data from the transaction room and inserts the correct deadline. Time-Saving Integration with Industry Partnerships Lone Wolf: DocuSign is delivering integration with Lone Wolf's brokerWOLF accounting system at no additional charge – minimizing errors and saving time and money on data entry. Unlike other offerings, DocuSign covers the integration cost, eliminating per-transaction fees for brokers.

Zapelo Launches at Real Estate Connect
San Francisco, CA – August 3, 2015 – America's one-million-plus real estate brokers and agents use separate technology systems for email, CRM, lead generation, calendar scheduling and task tracking, document storage, electronic signatures, transaction management, and drip marketing. Zapelo is looking to disrupt real estate technology's silo approach with the industry's first cloud-based, wholly integrated and end-to-end mobile real estate management system. "Zapelo is like taking the right pieces from Gmail, Dropbox, MailChimp, dotloop, REESIO and Top Producer, putting them together and making it affordable for any brokerage," says Jack Berube, CEO of Zapelo. Zapelo is a simple-to-use, fully integrated, mobile real estate management system that offers a CRM, lead generation, transaction management, email, calendar and task tracking, workflow checklists, integrated electronic signatures and shareable document storage – all on the cloud. "It's the first system that truly manages the real estate sales funnel from top-to-bottom," Berube says. "Everyone is paying for technology no one is really using. For the technology you actually use, most brokerages will subscribe to multiple products, log in and out of various systems, and re-enter the same damn data again and again. It's nuts," Berube adds. Zapelo launches tomorrow at Inman Real Estate Connect in San Francisco, and is featured as part of the conference's coveted Startup Alley. Real Estate Connect, the real estate industry's preeminent gathering of the leaders in real estate and technology industries, has launched some of the real estate technology industry's biggest brands. Rhonda Duffy (duffyrealtyofatlanta.com), who is ranked as the number one listing agent in the U.S. and the number one agent in Georgia, calls Zapelo, "The Swiss-Army knife" of real estate technology. "Vendors keep pushing single apps or bloated software with features that agents will never use," Duffy said. "Zapelo has created a 'right-sized' technology to include only the features a broker or team needs to manage their real estate pipeline." "Zapelo has made the complex simple and affordable, which is exactly what agents must have," Duffy adds. "Agents don't have time to sit in a training class to learn every new product and most agents can't afford to pay $30 to $100 a month for a dozen different services. Zapelo solves both of these problems." Zapelo integrated product features: Email system: Full-featured email system leverages your email address (IMAP) throughout all these features and connects email to tasks, schedules, documents, and more. CRM tool: Agents can quickly add prospects and clients to a new marketing campaign; everything is synchronized, time stamped and trackable. Transaction management: A fully collaborative system that allows agents to interact with their clients – no exporting or importing, everything is all on the cloud in this single environment. Lead generation: Leads generated from any source can be automatically imported into the platform. Drip marketing: Fast, easy to use templates to stay-in-touch with prospects and past clients. Calendar and task tracking: Everything agents needs for scheduling their daily routine and track tasks throughout the transaction process to help agents keep on top of their pipeline. Electronic signatures: Fully integrated into the platform and ultra secure, works just like the most popular eSignature systems but is completely integrated, storing everything in one place (for brokerages, Zapelo is designed to work in concert with their current solution in most cases). Document storage and sharing: Features a secure and easy way to securely share documents so your customers don't need to open a third-party account to access their files. "White label" for brokerages: The platform is designed to promote the brokerage's brand, not Zapelo's brand, with a 24-hour "White label" offering to customize the platform to the look and feel of the brokerage's brand. "White label" customized branding includes color scheme, corporate logo, and customized task lists.   Today the Beta version of Zapelo is available to real estate brokerages, teams and agents. Brokerages pay a one-time setup fee, which includes their "White label" customized branding, for $500 and $199 a month. Individual agent accounts are $49 per month, and volume discounts are available for brokerages. Zapelo CEO Berube is also offering MLS firms and Realtor associations their own branded versions of Zapelo to offer their members a new potential source of revenue. About Zapelo Zapelo, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the real estate industry's first fully-integrated mobile real estate management system. This cloud-based platform features just the right tools active agents need to manage their business, including CRM, lead generation, transaction management, drip marketing, email, calendar and task tracking, workflow checklists, integrated electronic signatures and shareable document storage. Zapelo offers brokerages one system to reduce operating risk, boost efficiency and improve the overall customer experience. Discover Zapelo online at http://www.zapelo.com.

Real Estate Agreements of Purchase and Sale Can Be Signed Electronically as of July 1
TORONTO, ON. June 29, 2015 — The Government of Ontario announced today that real estate consumers will be permitted to use electronic signatures on real estate agreements of purchase and sale (APS) as of July 1st, 2015. "The agreement of purchase and sale is one of the most important documents in a real estate transaction," said Patricia Verge, Ottawa-area REALTOR® and president of OREA. "The ability to sign it electronically will make the process of buying or selling more efficient. This is great news for REALTORS® as well as consumers across the province." Electronic signatures on agreements of purchase and sale will significantly reduce the time required to process a deal. At present, agreements of purchase and sale are often faxed, scanned and emailed numerous times over the course of a transaction. "This process can be cumbersome and by the time the final version is signed, the agreement can be difficult to read," said Verge. "The technology allows agreements to be filled out on a computer or tablet, changes can be tracked and documents can be transmitted with ease." The government's decision comes in the form of proclamation of a 2013 amendment to the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 (ECA), which extended the legal protections of the Act to include electronic real estate agreements of purchase and sale. The Ministry of the Attorney General is responsible for the ECA. The Ministry led the consultations and approved the final proclamation of the amendment. "Buying or selling a home is one of the most complex, time-consuming transactions that most people make -- it's also one of the most important," said Attorney General, Madeleine Meilleur.

Stay GREEN as a Real Estate Professional, Minimize the Paper and Impress!
This article comes to us from the Homes.com blog. You can view the original article here. If you are working in the real estate industry, then you know how real estate professionals are always on the cutting edge of technology. From the fax machine to cell phone, real estate professionals were among the first in line to purchase these items and this trend has continued. Apple first launched the iPad in 2010, and many real estate professionals jumped on the tablet bandwagon and soon were utilizing this device everyday for business. They may begin to utilize a brand new tool – a program that may forever change the way people sign and share documents including real estate contracts. It's called Docusign. Docusign is a company that is changing the way people sign documents. In real estate especially, loads of paperwork are the norm, not only for the real estate professional, but for buyers and sellers too! Many of us and even you may dread this increased amount of paperwork, especially when you have to carry it around everywhere. The good news is – those days may be numbered, soon! Docusign was founded in 2004, and since then they have accumulated more than 13 million registered users. These users have signed more than 110 million documents. Did you know 99 of the Fortune 100 companies have used Docusign, as well as 300+ credit unions nationwide? Here's how Docusign works. Let's say you, a real estate agent or mortgage lender become a registered user of Docusign; you can now upload documents that can be accessed from your mobile device, whether it be a smart phone, iPad, laptop or Mac. Now, you can bring your device to a client's house (or wherever your appointment may be) and access the e-documents from there. The clients can sign their e-signatures and then you can e-mail the documents directly to them later. This saves on a lot of paper and it also makes it easier to keep track of documents. WOW! Time saved, paper saved, impression made to your clients... Why hasn't this idea caught on sooner? The main reason has been compliance and security. Not all states recognized e-signatures as legally binding until just a few years ago. Also, many people were worried about forgery issues, however Docusign takes great care to ensure the safety and security of e-signatures. There is a verification period to ensure proper security. Docusign claims that 50% of all documents are verified within two hours. Once this trend catches on within the industry, the loads of 'paperwork days' could be over. It's said that real estate professionals love their technology, so anything that can save time and money is worth pursuing, especially when it comes to a having hectic real estate schedule. E-signing and mobile documents are definitely the future of real estate documents. There's no question about that, in my opinion. The only concern now, is "How long it will take before this concept is accepted by most associations?" We'll have to see, but keep an eye out for this because more and more organizations will begin to use this and you don't want to be the last one, right?

Authentisign Speeds Real Estate Transactions
Guest Contributor Kay Pratt of RE/MAX sends us a great testimonial about Authentisign offered by Instanet Solutions.  Kay says: I have been using Authentisign for over two years now to speed the processing of real estate transactions for my clients. As most everyone knows, real estate transactions require a TON of paperwork. There are offers to sign, along with counteroffers, addendums, treatments, repairs and replacements (TRR) documents, contract extensions, etc. And this is all BEFORE the closing occurs. In the past the fax machine was our best friend. I would constantly be faxing documents for clients to sign, picked up and transferring signed documents, and trying to keep track which document was the latest version. The entire process was very inefficient and was especially problematic when clients were out of town or worse yet, traveling for work. If clients were in Edmond the process wasn’t bad, and even in the Oklahoma City metro area it was workable, but if a client was moving from California and buying a house in Oklahoma, the process was very cumbersome. Clients would have to find a fax machine, which can be challenging on weekends or late at night, print the document, sign it, then fax it back to me. I would have to sign it, scan it, then email it to the other Realtor. The entire process was challenging at best. All of my real estate documents are kept in a program called Transaction Desk, and I could quickly create a document there and send it to Authentisign for digital signatures. In Authentisign I set up the emails of my clients and anyone else who may need to sign a document, load the document, and then send it for digital signature. Authentisign then sends an email to my client with a link to a signature page. They create a login and Authentisign handles the digital signature and ensures everything is secure, encrypted and legal for use in Oklahoma. This has significantly sped up the signing of documents, especially for distant or traveling clients. My clients LOVE the process since it is so much faster and more efficient than tracking down a fax machine. All the documents are kept in Transaction Desk so we can pull them up at any time, send them via email or fax, or just save and/or print them if needed. And since real estate transactions are time sensitive, this makes sure we meet our deadlines and don’t default on a contract offer." To View The Original Blog Post Click Here!

DotLoop Powers 23 New Michigan Real Estate Offices to Meet the Demand of Today’s Buyer and Seller
The move towards completely electronic real estate transactions is quickly becoming the norm throughout the industry. Recently, Michigan agents joined a growing number of real estate professionals across the country as 23 offices began using DotLoop in the month of April to complete deals electronically and increase efficiency. In response to the growing presence of mobile technology among consumers, REALTORS® use DotLoop to leverage technology, meeting a growing demand to buy and sell homes online. For years, real estate agents and brokers advertised listings online, yet failed to employ closing or transaction functions in the same online space. According to the 2010 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the share of buyers who searched "frequently" online for their home rose to 89 percent in 2010. DotLoop delivers that solution for real estate agents and the home buyers they serve. Using what's known as a "collaborative workspace," agents share and adjust documents with clients in real-time, anywhere they have Internet access. When all negotiations are complete, electronic signatures are used to finalize the contracts quickly and securely. Agents across the country using the "collaborative workspace" are completing deals quicker and easier than before. "This will set us apart from other agents in how easy it is to make offers on our listings," said Darne Ridgley, REALTOR® with Keller Williams. "The client view will be easy to explain and the co-op agents will not have any trouble viewing it either." While transactions may only be initiated by DotLoop authorized agents, it's available to the cooperative agent receiving the initiation for free. This open source engagement with other agents allows transactions to maintain transparency and simplicity with the home buyer's and seller's interests in mind. Jim Bowling of RE/MAX Preferred Group of Southern Ohio said, "Depending how you look at it, it could mean the difference of getting a signature at 1 p.m. or 5 p.m. once my client gets off work. My clients sign contracts at work, in seconds." DotLoop helps an agent overcome the inefficiencies of the traditional real estate process and meet the demands of today's home buyers and sellers. By leveraging technology, both agents and their brokers position themselves for future success. Agents across the country continue to adopt DotLoop's collaborative workspace with nearly 10,000 new users added every month. In the midst of a national expansion, DotLoop continues to simplify the home buying and selling process for agents and clients in New York, Ohio, Florida and more to come over the next year. About DotLoop Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, DotLoop is transforming the real estate industry by providing a collaborative workspace where any real estate agent can share and sign transaction documents. As the leading provider of collaborative negotiation services, DotLoop is available to service all real estate professionals throughout the United States and Canada.

As online business continues to evolve, these tech-minded buyers will appreciate a platform like DotLoop where they can share, adjust and electronically sign documents in real time; under one collaborative workspace. "I was recently traveling with family for the weekend and had a buyer decide abruptly to write an offer on a house we had seen earlier in the week. No problem with the DotLoop difference," said Tonya Hayes, top-producing Realtor with Keller Williams in Columbia, SC. "I quickly found out what she wanted to offer, logged on and emailed the contract for initials and signatures and was on our way to a ratified contract Monday." Initiating real-time transactions or "loops" with clients provides a level of communication similar to being at the same table. As each "loop" is created, agents and clients are continually updated as amendments and electronic signatures are applied to each document. The idea is to eliminate confusion and provide greater clarity to each party throughout the process. Recent studies show an increasing number of new buyers perform their search for a home using the Internet. The National Association of Realtor's "Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers 2010" states, "For the last three years, about 90 percent of home buyers used the Internet in their search." Electronic signatures have also been a used throughout ecommerce for more than a decade. However, until recently, electronic signatures were underutilized in the buying and selling of real estate. Since the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) Act was passed in 2000 – officially recognizing electronic signatures as legally binding -- user companies reportedly saw increases in their sales while maintaining the integrity and security of their customers' information. A 2010 study by Aberdeen Group indicates, "Users of electronic signatures were 50 percent more likely to show improved customer renewal rates, 41 percent more likely to reduce proposal errors and 18 percent more likely to shorten sales cycles." These statistics directly correlate with the functionality of the collaborative workspace within DotLoop. Upon successful adoption in other regions such as the Carolinas, Virginia, Maryland, Utah and South Texas, DotLoop's presence in Georgia is on pace to gain even more agent users. Agents across the country are experiencing a new way of doing business that makes home buying and selling simple and efficient. After establishing its presence in Georgia, DotLoop continues to expand, reaching new agents in Tennessee, Alabama, Michigan and Northern Ohio during the month of April. About DotLoop Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, DotLoop is transforming the real estate industry by providing a collaborative workspace where any real estate agent can share and sign transaction documents.

DocuSign Featured as 1 of 5 Top iPad Productivity Tool Under $5
DocuSign, provides of an electronic signature solution to real estate professionals.  With the release of the new iPad 2, and specifically their new camera, DocuSign now offers an electronic signature solution for iPad 2 owners! Originally providing a free iPad application to focused more on document management, they have now increased their application's functionality. Congrats DocuSign, and iPad 2 users! For all you iPad owners, weighing the pros and cons with upgrading to an iPad 2, add this option to your "Pros." Below is CIO's list and description of "5 Awesome iPad Productivity Tools for Under $5." 1. DocuSign Imagine you're a salesperson with an iPad making a pitch to a client. With DocuSign, you can hand your iPad to your client so that he can review his order and you can close the deal on the spot. The customer can electronically sign an order using their finger on the iPad via DocuSign on the mobile Safari browser. The iPad can blow open the doors for signing everything from sales orders to real estate forms electronically. DocuSign currently claims more than 6 million users of its cloud-based service, many of whom work in Fortune 500 companies. Last fall, DocuSign came out with a free iPad app for managing documents that need to be signed. With the iPad 2, the app lets users take a picture of a document so that it can be electronically signed. There's also a geo-location feature built into the app that records the location of a signing for audit purposes. 2. iA Writer At some point, most everyone needs to write a lengthy document—if not the great American novel, then a report, memo or other directives. If you need to write something longer than a 140-character Tweet, use the iPad app that most writers prefer, iA Writer ($1). iA Writer strips all the frills of formatting and word processing and lets you focus on the words in standard Courier type (think: typewriter). The virtual keyboard is set up to make common punctuation easy without having to switch to the symbols keyboard. Arrow keys help you navigate around the document. Another cool feature: focus mode, which dims all the words except for the three lines you're working on. That way, you can make those words really sing. Reading time and word count indicators on the upper right corner keep track of the document's length. The only feature this app doesn't have is a way to get around writer's block. 3. Salesforce Chatter Sales, marketing and public relations pros know the value of relationships and networking. A social networking iPad app tuned specifically for Salesforce users, called Salesforce Chatter (free), seemed only natural and was released last fall. More than a quarter of Salesforce's customer base uses the platform. Salesforce Chatter lets users post status updates, pictures, links, even PowerPoint presentations, as well as updates on projects and sales deals. They can create business profiles that highlight work experience and include graphics that show performance. Salesforce Chatter keeps executives up-to-date on the latest sales-related happenings, as well as what's on the minds of the movers and shakers in their industry. Users can also search out people with related business interests in the hopes of growing their network and finding potential customers. 4. SoundNote Chances are you've sat in corporate meetings frantically scratching notes on a pad of paper. It's not very efficient, and you've probably missed important details. This method of note-taking has been going on for generations. There's got to be a better way. Now there's SoundNote for the iPad ($5), which not only lets you take notes and drawings but records audio of the meeting. The best part of the app: While an audio recording backs up your notes, you won't have to look forward to hours of listening to the recording and maybe even transcribing to find missed details. Just tap on a word, and you'll jump to the proper place in the audio track. (Okay. It's awesome for tech reporters too.) 5. WordBook Are you searching for the right word in an important email? Have you run across a word whose meaning eludes you? It probably happens all the time, especially on the iPad where reading books and Web articles is a mainstay of the device. WordBook XL - English Dictionary & Thesaurus on the iPad just might be the best $3 investment in the app store. Quickly look up words and learn their meanings, or use the thesaurus to find the perfect word. You can bookmark words that you might want to use later. Even if you're not a wordsmith or voracious reader, WordBook helps you avoid gaffes that can make you look foolish. (Who can forget Sarah Palin's use of the word "refudiate"?) The app has a neat pop-up spelling engine that helps you find the correct spelling of words. Tom Kaneshige covers Apple and Networking for CIO.com.
