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.

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.

Realty Commander Announces Broker Document Approval and Document View Tracking Enhancements
Mar. 11, 2014 - ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Realty Commander, the leader in real estate transaction management software, recently introduced their Broker Document Approval and Document View Tracking enhancements. These new features work together to streamline the document approval process, help brokers and agents stay compliant, and speed up the disbursement of commissions. "The beauty of these new product enhancements is that they work together to ensure that the communication between broker and agent is not lost," said Erik Lovell, CEO, Realty Commander. "The Broker Document Approval feature allows agents to submit documents to brokers via email, which can then be approved or rejected with added comments. All transactions are automatically logged for audit purposes through the Document View Tracking system, which provides a clear audit trail throughout the entire lifespan of each transaction." The Broker Document Approval enhancement was the number one requested feature from Realty Commander users, and it allows agents to send completed documents directly from the Commander platform to the broker. This feature is platform agnostic; documents can be reviewed and approved by brokers who either use or don't use Realty Commander. This is strengthened by the Document View Tracking feature, which benefits users by automatically logging when and by whom a document is viewed in their Activity Log. These recent enhancements help brokers and agents maintain compliance while streamlining the entire process of approving and tracking documents. About Realty Commander As the leader in real estate transaction management technology, Realty Commander offers agents and brokers the most comprehensive and convenient solutions on the market. With more than $4 billion in transactions managed and tracking of over 27 million activities, Realty Commander helps professionals in all areas of real estate succeed with automatic and seamless paperless transaction management.

Reesio Launches Revamped Documents Platform To Make Dropbox Obsolete

Introducing Realty Commander
  There's a wide variety of transaction management software on the market today. And it's no wonder--using a great solution is probably the easiest way agents can save themselves time and hassle, and better communicate with their clients. The key is finding the product that works best for you. Today, we'd like to introduce you to a transaction management solution that should be on the radar of any agent or broker. Realty Commander covers all the necessities of a solid transaction management platform--document sharing, task manager, calendars--but it's the extras that differentiate it. The solution excels in handling multiple different file types, like a buyer, regular listing or short sale. Other notable features include: Customizable File Flow Integrated Quick Search Daily E-Mail Reminders Task Management Paperless Document Management Smart Drag-and-Drop Calendar E-Mail Integration with Smart Tracking Lender Forms Library Short sale package builder HUD Editor Client / Guest Access Login Showings Manager for Buyers and Listings Multi-User Access Levels for Teams or Brokers A Closer Look We're big believers in the idea that the best solution is one you actually use, not the one with the most features. While Realty Commander has plenty of features, none are extraneous. They all exist to streamline and organize your workflow. Here's a quick visual tour: Pipeline At a glance, see all active transactions and their status: File Overview Page Once you click into a file, the overview page provides extensive information, including notes like hardships and property issues, mortgage progress, associated tasks and showings, comps, associated parties, an activity log, documents, and more. Showing Scheduler Commander's Showing Scheduler can be accessed from the Task tab within the File Overview page. It goes beyond simply keeping track of showings, and actually sends a showings report to you and your buyer before appointments with a map and lockbox information. The showings system is straightforward and easy to use, both for buyers and listings. Here's a quick look at how you can easily add a showing: Contact Manager See information for all of your contacts at once, including their access levels, roles, company, and more. While you can't mass email from Realty Commander, you can easily filter by tags and export. The program makes it easy to add contacts from anywhere and assign them to the files they're involved with. Short Sale Features Commander is equipped with multiple components to streamline handling of short sales. This includes a customizable mortgage database pre-populated with 50 companies, a HUD generator (read more below), built-in lender forms library, and a short sale package builder that adds the loan number to every page, saving agents time. HUD Editor Commander's user friendly HUD Editor is convenient for short sales, but also works well for regular buyers and sellers. Agents can use it as a quick way to estimate cash due to or from the seller or buyer. Smart Calendar View all tasks and deadlines by month, week, or day. The calendar features drag and drop functionality with date information integrated with files. Dates changed from within files or on the calendar itself will automatically update in both places. Tasks from Commander's Task Manager integrate into the calendar, too. Agents can mark tasks as complete right from the calendar, eliminating the need to click over to the Task Manager. Different types of tasks are color coded, making it easy to see your whole business, from closing and offer dates to tasks for you and your assistant. Users can turn off items at the top in order to see only certain types of tasks at a time. Every morning, Realty Commander emails you a list of tasks that are due that day and any important upcoming dates on your files. Guest Access for Clients Agents can keep their clients in the loop by granting them guest access. Clients can make notes, view the latest activity on their file, and upload documents. They can view only the notes you share, giving you control over what they see. Agents will receive an email every time a client uploads a note or document. This keeps you up to date on everything your clients are doing, without needing to be logged in all the time. The system will also email your clients when you update their file. This lets your clients know how hard you are working for them, and saves you time by automating update notifications. For agents and brokers looking to brand the customer experience they offer, Commander offers a customization upgrade to its Guest Access area. Users have multiple options for customization, including adding a logo. Email Tracking Commander also offers an integrated email feature. We'll walk you through it with an example: Let's say a client replies to an automated update from Realty Commander. You receive the email via your regular email client, like Outlook or Gmail. Later, you reply to from your smart phone. Realty Commander will log every email sent and received into the correct file. Any documents emailed as an attachment are automatically uploaded into the file's document management system. There's no setup or syncing necessary. What's more, you don't have to change how you email, and you're not forcing your clients to login somewhere. This helps your team stay on track and documents all communication in case there's ever a problem. Task Management We were particularly impressed with Realty Commander's task management capabilities. The program comes pre-populated with task lists for various scenarios, like the new listing task list below. Lists can be customized to a user's workflow, or created from scratch. This is particularly useful for brokers looking to standardize processes across their office. To ensure execution, Commander automatically emails users every morning with their tasks for the day and important upcoming dates. Finally, let's not overlook the small details. Realty Commander makes it easy to find the information you need with a Quick Search bar. Users can search for client names, companies, broad roles (e.g., "buyer"), email, tags, contacts and more. This is especially helpful for agents and brokers with a lot of files and contacts. Training and Support Realty Commander offers multiple options for support. Right from the home page, the program offers tips, suggestions, and video tutorials. Users can click help icons throughout the program for help. In addition, Commander offers a training library and Help Center with a searchable knowledge base. One-on-one demos are also available for training or pre-sales purposes.

DotLoop Further Penetrates the Bluegrass State, Powering Five New Real Estate Offices
05/18/2011– REALTORS® throughout Kentucky are committed to simplifying the lives of home buyers and sellers by leveraging technology for simpler transactions. In response to this commitment, DotLoop, the collaborative workspace for real estate is powering five new offices in addition to adoption success by REALTOR® Association members of the Bluegrass State. Kentucky REALTOR® Associations powered by DotLoop have achieved more than 75 percent adoption by their members. These real estate agents recognize DotLoop as a necessary platform for their business as a means of completing deals faster, with more transparency and efficiency. With today's home buyers and sellers constantly connected with various technology, REALTORS® require a solution that's as convenient as it is effective. DotLoop's unique "Version-Now" technology breaks the barriers of traditional real estate transactions by encompassing document sharing, adjusting and electronic signatures. Contrary to eSignature and file-sharing software that relies on PDFs, DotLoop's collaborative workspace makes online transactions more transparent as all parties work from the most recent version of a document at all times. Many of today's home buyers and sellers communicate with that same transparency on a daily basis through online shopping and banking, using smart phones and tablets to facilitate instant and virtually limitless connectivity. Performing entire transactions online eliminates the need for agents and their clients to travel across town or chase down a fax machine to acquire signatures. Therefore, each party saves immeasurable time throughout their day as they complete transactions online in real time. Home buyers and sellers expect and demand simplicity without having to budget their time around a transaction. "By using a contract-based system that employs electronic signatures, I am able to just shoot things off and not be concerned with all the paper," said Heather Shaw, REALTOR® with Sibcy Cline. "It helps with organization and the ability to serve clients." As technology continues to flourish in the emerging marketplace, REALTORS® with the right technology solution will provide a higher level of return and customer satisfaction over those who do not. The Kentucky real estate offices and associations currently adopting DotLoop are enabled to meet the needs of home buyers and sellers. With 75 percent adoption among the Kentucky REALTOR® associations that offer DotLoop as a member benefit, indicates a growing demand and acceptance for technology solutions in real estate that work. The growth in users has allowed DotLoop to flourish in the Bluegrass State as a leading provider of transactions solutions to individual real estate offices and REALTOR® Association members as well. The continued growth is a testament to Kentucky agents, as well as those across the country, to simplify the home buying and selling process to better serve their clients. 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.

DotLoop Opens Doors to Green Real Estate Transactions for 12 Tennessee Brokerages
CINCINNATI - Effective in April, DotLoop's collaborative workspace begins powering twelve Tennessee real estate brokerages in addition to attending REBarCamp Nashville. The twelve new brokerages in Tennessee are part of DotLoop's national expansion aimed at helping agents maximize their efficiency in the buying and selling of real estate. The DotLoop solution provides Tennessee agents with a collaborative workspace allowing them to eliminate the inefficiencies of the traditional real estate transaction. Agents and clients initiate transactions, or "loops," where they can adjust and electronically sign documents as if they were sitting at a table together. The DotLoop collaborative workspace eliminates faxing, filing and printing which are time consuming and uneconomical. The paper needed to perform these functions takes time and increases administrative costs for brokerages. DotLoop's approach allows for real-time interaction between agents and clients for all of the necessary transaction details. Sharing, adjusting and electronically signing documents under collaborative workspace creates a faster workflow; consequently using less paper. Additionally, agents use less gas to track down clients for signatures, further reducing their carbon footprint. According to the Tennessee Housing Development Agency, more than 49,000 homes were sold in Tennessee in 2009. Also, the average home sale can use anywhere from 100 to more than 400 sheets of paper. Therefore, Tennessee agents using DotLoop are leading the way towards more eco-friendly real estate practices with every home they sell. These agents with the desire to leverage technology in their business are enjoying benefits beyond environmentally conscious practices. Many like-minded professionals are looking for new methods of managing their real estate transactions using technology. While in Tennessee, DotLoop will stop in Nashville to attend REbarCamp 2011. REbarCamp, headed by industry leader Brian Copeland, is where real estate technology enthusiasts gather to discuss new products and concepts that can benefit to the industry as a whole. With agents across the country experiencing the benefits of DotLoop in their business, REBarCamp Nashville provides a new arena to share the collaborative workspace. REbarCamp is not your typical structured conference. It's a gathering of some of the brightest minds in the industry presenting new ideas and collaborating with the audience. REbarCamp isn't a venue to sell products, but rather a forum for individuals in real estate to maximize their business potential through exposure to technologies.
