Lone Wolf introduces Link to transform real estate transactions
Real estate's first two-way transaction management and back office integration to be released in April CAMBRIDGE, Ontario, March 18, 2019 -- Lone Wolf Technologies ("Lone Wolf"), the North American leader in residential real estate software, today announces that Link, real estate's first two-way transaction management and back office integration, will be released in April. Orders for the integration begin today. Link is a two-way integration between TransactionDesk and brokerWOLF, Lone Wolf's transaction management and back office and accounting solutions, respectively. The integration sends transactional data from the agent to the back office—and back again—in real time. This ensures agents and the brokerage's staff always have the same transaction information and can communicate changes to each other in an instant, which provides a seamless transaction experience and saves both parties a significant amount of time on every deal. With over 700,000 real estate agents subscribed to TransactionDesk and over 4,000 real estate brokerages using brokerWOLF, Link has the potential to transform real estate transactions for a massive number of agents and brokerages in North America. "We're elated to release Link to the real estate industry," said Jack Blaha, CEO of Lone Wolf Technologies. "For the first time, agents and brokerages can share transaction and back office information in real time. This means simpler and faster transactions for all of the parties involved, whether they're an agent, Broker/Owner, staff, or even a home buyer or seller. I'm confident Link will set the standard for real estate transaction management in North America." TransactionDesk is an online transaction management solution featuring eSignature, forms, MLS integration, document storage, broker dashboards, broker file review, transaction templates, and company-wide checklists. brokerWOLF is a back office and accounting solution that combines traditional accounting functions, such as commissions, with operational functions, such as transactions. By connecting both solutions, Link gives brokerages one platform to manage their transactions from contract to close to general ledger. This reduces their risk of non-compliance and issuing funds too early, and improves the transaction experience brokerages can provide to their office, agents, and clients. "Link is the most important development in real estate technology in some time," said Matt Goddard, General Manager of Back Office at Lone Wolf. "Link connects two industry-leading products, TransactionDesk and brokerWOLF, in a way that's never been done before. The impact this will have on the real estate industry is significant. With agents and brokerages in lockstep on every deal, I expect Link will redefine the transaction experience and become the future of real estate transaction management. Lone Wolf is the only company that can provide it." About Lone Wolf Technologies Lone Wolf Technologies, a Vista company, is the North American leader in residential real estate software, with products in over 20,000 offices across Canada and the U.S. The company offers an ecosystem of technology products, including software for back office, transaction management, front office, and web, as well as professional services and 3rd party integrations.

This deal strengthens the nearly 30-year relationship between Crye-Leike and Lone Wolf. Crye-Leike has long trusted Lone Wolf's back office system as their corporate management software. This familiarity played a big role in Crye-Leike's decision to use TransactionDesk® as their paperless transaction management system.

DocuSign unveils System of Agreement vision at Momentum 2018
Company announces the future of its agreements platform with product updates for blockchain, artificial intelligence, and responsive signing SAN FRANCISCO, June 20, 2018 -- Following its successful initial public offering in April of this year, DocuSign today kicked off its annual customer, partner and developer conference—Momentum 2018—by unveiling its expanded vision, along with new product innovations designed to deliver on it. The company's vision is centered around modernizing the world's Systems of Agreement: the technologies and processes that companies use to prepare, sign, enact and manage agreements. This builds on DocuSign's existing standing as the world's #1 e-signature solution provider. And it broadens the company's platform to automate and connect what happens before, during and after an e-signature is executed. "We're on a mission to make the world more agree-able by transforming the foundational element of business: the agreement process," said Dan Springer, CEO of DocuSign. "With e-signature, we took the paper out of paperwork—something that has garnered us more than 400,000 paying customers and hundreds of millions of users worldwide today. We now see an expanded opportunity to do the same for the entire agreement process." Geoffrey Moore, author of Crossing the Chasm and co-author of the white paper, The Rise of Modern Systems of Agreement, agrees—adding: "Over the years, companies have invested billions of dollars to digitally transform their Systems of Record and to create automated Systems of Engagement. But neither of those established platforms handles the complexities and legalities of agreement processes natively or easily. I believe that System of Agreement platforms will fill this gap. It's a new and long-overdue category." To bring this vision to life, DocuSign showcased more than a dozen product innovations at Momentum 2018—many of which are slated to ship with the DocuSign Summer '18 Release or at other milestone times later this year. Some highlights of that innovation include: Blockchain: DocuSign demonstrated a live integration with the Ethereum blockchain, allowing evidence of a DocuSigned agreement to be automatically written to Ethereum. DocuSign also announced two policy and standards-based activities: membership in the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, where DocuSign is collaborating with industry leaders to define blockchain best practices and open standards; and membership in the Chamber of Digital Commerce, where DocuSign will work with policy makers and regulatory agencies on blockchain initiatives. DocuSign for Salesforce CPQ: Agreement processes such as pricing quotes and proposals often involve multiple paper documents, multiple parties, and the time-consuming issues of signing, scanning, and emailing. DocuSign for Salesforce CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) connects CPQ data into DocuSign agreements, which can be sent directly from Salesforce. The result is a faster and easier experience at every stage of the quote-to-cash process. Responsive Signing: Using a customer example that is already live in hundreds of retail stores across the United States, DocuSign demonstrated a new technology that renders an agreement 'responsively'—meaning it is easily readable whether the user is on a desktop, tablet or phone. The technology automatically converts a PDF agreement into responsive HTML on the fly, which means no more squinting at shrunken PDFs on small screens. Smart Sections: DocuSign also showcased how customers can take Responsive Signing to the next level by defining collapsible sections, page breaks, custom formatting options, and more. Especially important for longer or more complex agreements, this additional structure and interactivity delivers a further-enhanced experience over static PDFs. Artificial Intelligence for Search and Insights: DocuSign also demonstrated AI-based search and agreement analytics. Available as part of the Intelligent Insights platform extension by Seal Software, this technology uses machine learning and natural language processing to go beyond keywords and seek to understand agreement clauses in the way a human being would—for example, knowing that a clause about Internet cookies is about privacy, even when the word privacy is absent. DocuSign is also continuing to invest in one of its most important audiences: developers. The company recently relaunched an entirely new developer center, designed to provide a best-in-class experience with code examples, SDKs and toolkits. According to Marie Huwe, VP developer programs and evangelism at DocuSign, it has never been easier to get started as a developer. "We've automated the process for getting developers their integrator keys, so they can be developing against our API almost instantly," said Huwe. "And with almost 60% of all transactions on the DocuSign platform coming through the API today—and more than 80,000 developer sandboxes currently open on the platform—the developer community is extremely important to us."

"But most of all, we made this partnership for our members. With TransactionDesk®, TREB members will have the opportunity to be much more efficient and accurate with both listings and transactions. With an average of more than 275,000 residential and commercial sale and lease listings entered into TREB's MLS® System annually over the past 10 years, we're talking about a potentially massive impact on the Canadian real estate industry.

DocuSign Transaction Rooms and LeadStreet: Simplifying the process from lead to close
A real estate agent once told me they use more than 10 different tools to close a deal.

Forget re-entering the same data twice, RE/MAX agents can now easily create a Transaction Room from data in LeadStreet with just a few clicks.

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 Empowers Agents and Brokers to Get More from Their Real Estate Business by Transforming Transactions from Lead to Close
ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 6, 2016 -- NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS ANNUAL CONFERENCE — Demonstrating significant progress in its recently-announced 'lead to close' strategy, global eSignature and Digital Transaction Management leader DocuSign today announced several product updates, partnerships and commitments  that will help agents and brokers get more out of their business. There are three key elements to the news – updates to the DocuSign eMortgage solution, partnerships with Homes.com and zipLogix, and participation in Upstream's pilot program. All of these enable DocuSign to connect multiple people, systems and processes in a real estate transaction to make it simple, efficient and fully digital. And they are all part of the 'lead to close' strategy for the real estate industry, first announced by DocuSign Chairman and CEO Keith Krach in July this year, when DocuSign made its biggest investment in the real estate industry to date. "Agents are at the center of every real estate transaction and we know just how hard they work to make a home sale as easy as possible for their clients. Our mission is to help them save time and deliver more value for buyers and sellers," said Georg Gerstenfeld, general manager: Global Real Estate Solutions, DocuSign. "Our 'lead to close' strategy integrates DocuSign with the software that agents use every day so they don't need to re-enter data. Our mobile app means agents can keep a transaction moving even if they are on vacation or if their clients are traveling to another city. And our new eNotary solution means you never need to print another document all the way through the settlement process." "By using DocuSign to close nearly 3 million transactions a year, real estate professionals have made DocuSign a verb in the industry. We're excited to see NAR's strategic partner DocuSign continue to innovate to enhance the agent and client experience," said Bob Goldberg, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing, Business Development & Strategic Investments, Professional Development and Conventions of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). As part of the 'lead to close' strategy, eMortgage is transforming the industry, simplifying the consumer experience, helping agents present a more professional face to clients and improving brokers' ability to stay compliant with increasingly complex transactions. DocuSign recently announced several new features to enable a complete eMortgage – including eNotary and eNote. For most homebuyers and their agents, the home financing process remains a cumbersome, paper-based process. DocuSign's product investments in eMortgage shorten and simplify this process – enabling a better, and quicker, closing experience for buyers. With DocuSign's eNotary solution, 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. In addition, the company is seeking approval to become a certified eNote service provider for Fannie Mae, a certification only granted to a handful of organizations. Today's announcement with Homes.com integrates another leading app with DocuSign Transaction Rooms for Real Estate to reduce data re-entry and simplify the experience for agents. With Homes.com – a top consumer real estate resource and provider of marketing solutions for real estate professionals – DocuSign will streamline and simplify the experience for agents, brokers,  and their clients by connecting leads and listings directly from the Homes.com CRM system into DocuSign Transaction Rooms. "At Homes.com, we're committed to connecting real estate professionals with the highly engaged consumers that visit our site and use our marketing products. Partnering with DocuSign takes this one step further by streamlining an agent's workflow, creating a seamless process of moving a consumer from lead status into a transaction," said Dave Mele, president of Homes.com. "Agents will avoid duplicate data entry and the inconvenience of logging into different systems, offering a big win that simplifies the transaction process." DocuSign is also announcing an extended partnership with zipLogix, expanding its partnership around the zipForm® solution. "zipLogix and DocuSign have worked together for years to simplify the transaction process for agents, brokers, and their clients. This extension signifies their commitment to partnering to simplify the experience for the hundreds of thousands of agents and brokers using zipForm®," said Joel Singer, CEO at zipLogix. DocuSign's participation in Upstream's early access program will provide feedback and input before the solution is generally available. Working with Upstream will lead to innovations that simplify the agent experience while ensuring brokers remain in control of their data. "We're excited for DocuSign to support our pilot program. As a leader in the real estate industry, its vision for making real estate transactions digital from lead to close – while empowering brokers to control their data – is an example of the kind of innovation Upstream will create across the industry," said Alex Lange, CEO of Upstream. The real estate industry has been a key focus for DocuSign for many years – and according to DocuSign's Krach, that will only heighten in the years to come. "The real estate business is all about trust and relationships, and that starts with brokers and agents," said Krach. "At DocuSign, we are laser-focused on providing those real estate professionals with a platform that's available, secure, and easy to use. This has been vitally important to us from the beginning and we will continue to put agents, brokers and their clients at the center of the transaction so they can do business on the DocuSign Global Trust Network with confidence." DocuSign also formed a real estate advisory board in August this year, which replicates the principles of its global advisory board that has been instrumental in shaping the company's direction. Members include: Rick Davidson, CEO of Century 21, a sub of Realogy; Gino Blefari, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices; Mike Ryan, EVP of RE/MAX; Joel Singer, CEO of California Association of Realtors & zipLogix; Pam O'Connor, CEO of Leading Real Estate Companies of America; Dale Ross, CEO of RPR; Gary Simonsen, CEO of Canadian Real Estate Association; and Craig Cheatham, CEO of Realty Alliance.

Austin, TX – November 2, 2016 – William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby's International Realty (WPSIR) has selected TransactionDesk as its paperless platform and transaction management solution.

TransactionDesk, by Instanet Solutions, is a full-featured eSignature, online forms, transaction and document management system that includes a comprehensive set of tools and integrations for both agents and brokerages to manage their business.

Agents who are members of the MLSs will be able to leverage these deep integrations to speed the creation of transactions and completion of forms using MLS data and tax data integrations. Agents in certain MLSs will also be able to create listings in those MLSs by uploading data to the MLSs from TransactionDesk before or after sending that data to other brokerage systems. Additionally, deep document integrations ease the task of posting or retrieving documents to and from MLS listings. In many cases WPSIR agents will be able to login to TransactionDesk directly from the MLS, while still using WPSIR's customized version of TransactionDesk, giving them fast access to TransactionDesk from another frequently used application. "When we can make our associates' lives easier and make our brokerage more efficient at the same time, it's an easy choice to make," said WPSIR CEO and President Paul Breunich.

Move, Inc. aligns with Lone Wolf for a Seamless Lead-to-Commission System
  SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2016 -- Move, Inc., a foremost provider of real estate information, tools and professional expertise and the operator of leading online real estate services destination realtor.com, has aligned with residential real estate software giant Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies, Inc. to integrate Move's Reesio transaction management system with Lone Wolf's brokerage enterprise system. The combination further expands Move's professional software platform to provide the residential real estate industry with the most connected business management solution available today. The natural alignment of the two companies is founded upon a shared vision to empower real estate professionals, and their central role in guiding consumers through the real estate transaction process.  The integration between these products links two different, but complementary mission-critical tools to create a seamless data flow, eliminate duplicate data entry and increase transparency for all parties throughout the whole transaction process. Move's customers can already route leads from all sources to FiveStreetSM software for rapid response, flowing into Top Producer® CRM for cultivation, and into Reesio once the consumer forms an agreement with the agent.

RE/MAX to Standardize on DocuSign for Global Franchise Network
CHICAGO, Aug. 16, 2016 -- At its Broker/Owner conference here yesterday RE/MAX LLC, the global real estate franchisor, announced plans to standardize on DocuSign's eSignature platform and its Transaction Rooms for Real Estate solution for more than 100,000 broker and agent affiliates around the world. The news sees RE/MAX adding another unique tool to boost productivity for its brokers and agents – one that will allow transactions to be 100% digital from the moment an agent receives a lead to the moment the deed is recorded. It also comes close on the heels of DocuSign announcing it has doubled down on its support of the release estate industry – and launched its 'lead to close' strategy to put brokers and agents at the center of the real estate transaction, so that they can do the same for their clients. "We always strive to give our Affiliates the very best tools and resources to help grow their businesses and better serve their clients," explained Mike Ryan, executive vice president at RE/MAX. "RE/MAX Affiliates are hungry for technologies that can efficiently manage the entire real estate transaction from offer to close, especially those with a tamper-proof electronic signature capability. DocuSign offers our members a solution that is easy to use, secure, scalable and seamless on multiple devices." eSignature technology has become increasingly mainstream in real estate transactions in recent years, with the majority of professionals reporting they close digital deals faster as a result. The process for buyers and sellers is significantly streamlined by removing paper and wet signatures from the transaction. DocuSign Transaction Rooms for Real Estate takes that paperless concept several steps further, and is gaining increasing traction in the industry as a result. It empowers brokers, agents, buyers, sellers and all other parties to collaborate on the entire real estate transaction in a secure, online room – including electronically signing purchase and sales, addendums, closing documents and other paperwork. Against that backdrop, Ryan said RE/MAX chose DocuSign for how well its benefits align to RE/MAX's strategy. "In addition to transaction management, DocuSign provides a mobile offering, global reach, and legal compliance in key markets and a reliable platform that's always available," he said. "Our worldwide network of brokers and agents also appreciates the fact that DocuSign ensures they own their data and maintain control over how it is used." The deal also creates even more value for RE/MAX affiliates. DocuSign and RE/MAX are working together toward integrating DocuSign services with RE/MAX Mainstreet and LeadStreet, which will offer single sign-on capabilities and dramatically reduce the need for repetitive data entry. For RE/MAX independent regions that use their own systems and opt into this program, similar integrations will be built. In addition, DocuSign has an extensive network of software vendors with which it has integrated its product in the real estate space – from RPR for managing property data, to zipLogix for forms, to the accounting package from Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies, among many others. "DocuSign is making its biggest investment in real estate to date to enable brokers and agents to process more than 12 million documents annually and close more than 2.5 million real estate transactions every year," said Georg Gerstenfeld, VP & GM of the real estate business at DocuSign. "Today's announcement with RE/MAX solidifies an already-intense focus on the real estate industry. RE/MAX is a true leader in the industry here in North America and, indeed, around the world. We're looking forward to partnering with its franchised brokerages to empower them with DocuSign so that they can close deals faster and continually delight their clients."

Florida Realtors® Delivers Form Simplicity and Tech Helpline to Leading State Realtor® Associations
ORLANDO, FL (November 10, 2015) — When an expected crowd of 20,000 members of the National Association of REALTORS® gather in San Diego later this week for their annual conference, most will not be aware that one of their own associations has been rapidly distributing two homegrown, high-tech innovations across the nation. Inside the REALTORS® Conference & Expo halls, Florida Realtors®, the nation's second largest Realtor® state association with 140,000 members, will showcase not only the real estate industry's number one technical support firm -- Tech Helpline -- but also one of the real estate industry's most popular and advanced paperless transaction solutions: Form Simplicity. These "built by Realtors® for Realtors®" services together have established a national footprint that will soon expand significantly when two leading state associations roll out new services to their members and another renews its paperless transaction management services contract. Tech Helpline, the real estate industry's #1 tech support service, is a new, included member benefit that is being made available to two leading state associations: the Oregon Association of REALTORS® will provide its 14,400-plus members with Tech Helpline as a standard benefit beginning in December, and the Arizona Association of REALTORS® will provide its more than 42,000 members with Tech Helpline services beginning January 1, 2016. Tech Helpline was also launched last month to more than 13,600 members of the Orange County Association of REALTORS®. Renewing its paperless transaction management services contract is the Wyoming Association of REALTORS®; they will continue to provide the Ultimate Edition of Form Simplicity, which includes eSign digital signatures, as a standard benefit for 2,000 plus members, as it recently extended its contract. Eric Forsman, Vice President of Technology Services at Florida Realtors, notes that the success of Form Simplicity and Tech Helpline continues to be driven by recommendations from other associations. "Form Simplicity and Tech Helpline, because they are Realtor-homegrown, have a built-in advantage over products built by third parties and industry outsiders," Forsman says. "Both Form Simplicity and Tech Helpline deeply understand what Brokers and agents need for their technology solutions. That's how Florida Realtors has been able to create both a best-in-class, lead-to-close paperless transaction solution, and the most popular tech support firm in the real estate industry." At the REALTORS® Conference & Expo, experts from both Form Simplicity and Tech Helpline will be on hand to demonstrate these services, including the new Broker Transaction Management features that were recently added to Form Simplicity. Forsman notes that both services, which are owned by Florida Realtors, saves agents time. "Leveraging real-world, real estate experience and always having the best interest of our members at heart is something associations, MLSs and real estate brokerage firms deeply appreciate -- especially today," he said. Used daily by Realtors from Florida to Wyoming, New Jersey to Iowa and Arkansas, Form Simplicity may be used on mobile devices and has an integrated, digital signature solution, speeding up the process of closing transactions. Form Simplicity helps create smoother transactions for the broker, agents on both sides of the transactions, as well as the home buyer and seller. Tech Helpline analysts solve general technology issues for real estate professionals, such as virus problems and internet issues, Tech Helpline is known for its friendly, U.S.-based tech support and is available to one in three Realtors in North America -- more than 400,000 in the U.S. and Canada. Together, these two services are a powerful combination delivering valuable member benefits to real estate professionals, with Florida Realtors leading the effort in the advancement of technology for association members.

Latest Release of DocuSign for Real Estate PLUS, Broker Edition Helps Brokers Accelerate Agent Performance
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 1, 2015 -- DocuSign, Inc. announced the latest version of its industry-leading Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform and eSignature solution for real estate brokerages. Enhancements to DocuSign for Real Estate Plus, Broker Edition further position brokerages to improve agent performance, ensure compliance and data protection, and deliver a world-class client experience. The addition of new task management capabilities further positions DocuSign as the hub of real estate transactions for brokerages of any size and focus. Enhancements provide the flexibility to support task management within any brokerage. Key highlights include: Tasks Lists and Templates – The new task management feature in DocuSign for Real Estate Plus, Broker Edition allows brokerages to create a custom workflow unique to their organization that will help drive transaction efficiency and agent productivity. Task list templates can be created for each stage of the transaction to ensure that the client experience is consistent no matter which Agent is representing the brokerage. Tasks Overview – A new "Task" tab can be found in every DocuSign Transaction Room to provide Broker Edition users with quick visibility into all tasks related to a specific transaction. Tasks that require document actions are found here in addition to tasks not associated with documents. New task status icons make it easy for transaction parties to monitor tasks through completion to ensure deals continue through to close. Dynamic Due Dates and Reminders – Task due dates are dynamically set based upon the dates associated with each transaction, allowing brokers to ensure that specific actions are completed at specific times during the transaction. Additionally, a brokerage can configure reminders specific to each task. For example, when a task list template is applied to a DocuSign Transaction Room, the due date for a task will be automatically set based upon the expected closing date of the transaction and reminders can be sent at pre-determined times. Should the closing date change, the due date for the task and associated reminders will adjust accordingly. Dynamic Assignment of Responsibilities – The task owner, Assignee(s) and Watcher(s) for each task can be defined at the template level based upon the roles of participants to the transaction. When the task list template is applied to the transaction room, the system matches the defined roles to the participants to the transaction. For example, you can define the Assignee for a task in the template as the Buyer. When the task list template is applied to the transaction room, the task will automatically be associated with the participant in the transaction room identified as the Buyer. Workflow Flexibility – Permissions can be defined specific to each task in the task list template. The brokerage can determine whether Agents can edit or delete tasks, as well as if tasks need to be reviewed and approved once complete, empowering brokerages to utilize new task capabilities based on how they run their brokerage. Task Notifications – With new task notifications, DocuSign for Real Estate Plus, Broker Edition users will know exactly when a task is coming due or past due, as well as when complete. Task notifications enable individuals to follow in real-time the review and approval process for tasks. Notifications are based on individual user preference and can be received via email or push notifications from DocuSign's mobile apps for iOS and Android. "We're excited to provide our brokerage customers with innovative tools to better manage transactions from listing to close," said Glenn Shimkus, Vice President of Product, Global Real Estate Solutions at DocuSign.

SEATTLE and CINCINNATI, July 22, 2015 -- Zillow Group, which houses a portfolio of the largest and most vibrant real estate and home-related brands on mobile and Web, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to buy DotLoop, a Cincinnati-based company that simplifies real estate transactions by enabling brokerages, real estate agents, and their clients to share, edit, sign and store documents digitally. The transaction is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015. This acquisition is an extension of Zillow Group's commitment to empowering buyers, sellers and real estate professionals with tools and information to make their lives easier. Everyone involved in a real estate transaction - brokers, agents, homebuyers, sellers, and other participants including lenders and inspectors - wants to streamline what is a lengthy and complex process. DotLoop brings the transaction online, from the creation of a listing agreement to the submission of offers to the actual closing, enabling the process to move much more quickly and easily. Today, real estate agents create more than 300,000 loops (an agent's online workspace) and nearly half a million people sign real estate documents in DotLoop each month. "Real estate transactions are already moving online - it's what home buyers, sellers and real estate professionals want. We're incredibly excited by DotLoop's innovation and leadership in making digital transactions a reality," said Spencer Rascoff, CEO of Zillow Group. "Now we will be able to make their technology more readily available to Zillow Group's 10,000 broker partners and the agents they represent, as well as our approximately 100,000 real estate agent advertisers, resulting in a smoother and more efficient transaction process for everyone." "As we've long said, the future of real estate is people-work, not paperwork. That's why we are committed to removing the friction involved in paper-based real estate transactions," said Austin Allison, Founder and CEO of DotLoop. "Becoming part of Zillow Group will provide us with new resources to help us grow and expand our business, while we add value to our current customers by offering increased support and faster product development." DotLoop, which was founded in 2009, is led by Austin Allison who has been recognized across the real estate industry for his leadership and innovation including winning Inman News 2012 Innovator of the Year, inclusion in Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2012, and being named the 11th most powerful real estate technology executive in the Swanepoel Power 200 Report.

Instanet Solutions Implements New Listing Upload Interface for NWMLS
June 3rd, 2015 Austin, TX - Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) members can now create an MLS listing from a listing input form in TransactionDesk®. With one click, the data entered in the listing input form is processed and uploaded to the MLS as an incomplete/draft listing. The forms can also be saved for future use, allowing the agent or brokerage to finalize and review the data before the listing is uploaded to the MLS. This faster, completely paperless process provides NWMLS members with better data accuracy and reduced redundancy. Members can now enter data while at the property rather than having to try to remember property details later. Additionally, MLS metadata and input rules are incorporated into the listing input form, allowing members to select data options from drop-down lists rather than entering each option manually. This integration makes the entry process easier and more accurate. "Northwest MLS is excited to make this service available to our members. It launched a few weeks ago and we've received nothing but positive comments," said Tom Hurdelbrink, President and CEO of NWMLS. "We're able to provide our members with another interface for adding listing data; one that is seamlessly integrated with their online forms and their electronic signature system, InstanetForms® and Authentisign®." Instanet has integrated and deployed this solution with several other MLS systems. The data can be uploaded to the MLS using RETS Update, a web service, or other methods. The upload can be made RESO compliant or can be made to adhere to virtually any MLS data format. "In just a few weeks, we'll have over 100,000 MLS members around the country using this listing upload interface. It's a great solution in markets where signatures or initials are required on the profile sheet, if assistants or brokers are helping with the listing upload process, or where brokers want to get the data before or at the same time that it's entered into the MLS," said Martin Scrocchi, CEO of Instanet Solutions. "Nobody wants to have to remember which features a property has the next day when they are entering it into the MLS. This eliminates the need to fill in hundreds of property attributes on a piece of paper and then re-enter it again later. Now it can be easily done onsite and in real time." About Instanet Solutions Instanet Solutions is a leading provider of real estate technology with over 400,000 licensed, paid user accounts of their various real estate focused products – Authentisign®, TransactionDesk®, InstanetForms®, DocBox® and InstanetFax®. Instanet Solutions began delivering residential real estate technology in 1991.

Reesio Launches New Compliance/Workflow Features; Re-Designed Transaction Dashboard
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 27, 2015 -- Reesio, the combined CRM and Transaction Management platform for real estate professionals, has launched several new Compliance/Workflow features today, along with a revamped Transaction Dashboard design. The new features include the following: Relative due date rules for tasks at the template level, which then auto-populate the due dates for specific tasks at the transaction level based on the due date rules. Tasks to brokerage members can now be assigned at the template level. When users apply a new template to a transaction, the assignees will also automatically be added to the transaction and assigned those tasks. The addition of private compliance templates that any user within a brokerage can set up. Re-designed workflow section that gives users a better view of task information. Better manage tasks with mass/bulk actions; Delete, Assign, Approve, Flag, Complete, Set Compliance, Set visibility. The task approval process is now more streamlined by auto-completing the task when approved. The ability to remove/override any task due dates or due date rules applied. Sort tasks by task order, title, assignee, due date, compliance state, approval state, flag state, visibility state. All of the transaction dashboard pages have been redesigned with a new, modern look to match the rest of the Reesio product. Reesio Co-Founder & CEO, Mark Thomas, said that the above features in this launch correlate to the most requested features by its customers. "At Reesio, we provide around-the-clock customer support, and we receive lots of feedback requests from our customers regarding new features that they want to see. We take customer feedback very seriously here, and all of these features that we've launched today are ones that have received the most requests from our customers over the past few months. In addition, the newly re-designed transaction dashboard utilizes more screen space and offers a cleaner look and feel." Anecdotally, Thomas said that the number one thing that customers continuously praise Reesio for is its modern look and feel and design. "Real estate technology has been stuck in the dark ages," said Thomas. "And not just from a features standpoint, but also from a design standpoint. So many real estate technologies have user interfaces and visual designs that were created 10 years ago, and customers simply are not ok with that any longer. They want a product that looks and feels like they're using Facebook or Evernote -- not some boring real estate software. We take just as much time and care with the design and user experience of our product as we do with the new features that we roll out." The company also continues to take a unique approach with how it publicizes all of its new feature releases that they make. They've built a Product Updates page directly on their site, which gives a play-by-play of every single new feature that they release every week. Thomas says that customers love this transparency because they know that their voice is being heard and they can see all of the great changes that they're making every week. "No one else in the real estate industry is doing this because most of them are afraid to show what's under the hood. At Reesio, we believe that transparency is best." Thomas said that with this new features launch, all of which is focused on its Transaction Management product, that the company is going to now begin focusing almost 100% of its efforts on adding new CRM features. "The next area of focus for us is adding new CRM features. We were able to build a great v1 of our CRM product that we launched back in August 2014. Since that time, our customers have asked for additional features that will make Reesio's CRM a truly complete product, and allow us to fully realize our goal of becoming a one-stop-shop for the technology needs of real estate professionals." These new features will be released in several waves over the next 12 months, with the most-requested features being worked on and released first.

eBrokerHouse Platform Celebrates Milestone of $15 Billion in Closed Transactions
Real estate software firm eBrokerHouse, Inc. has announced that it has recently surpassed over $15 billion in closed transactions managed through its platform since the company launched its transaction and offer management software in 2009. The company's CEO, Alan Fenn, says, "We provide an easy to use tool for real estate agents to manage all aspects of their business in one location.

Agents and their teams can login to one platform and manage any type of transaction they have including traditional sales, short sales, REOs, and more." eBrokerHouse boasts that they cultivate a family atmosphere where their clients feel comfortable expressing their ideas and feedback. In fact, Fenn routinely answers customer support calls and replies to user emails himself. He says that talking with his customers daily is the best way for him to know what agents are dealing with on a day to day basis and what they need from a software. According to Fenn, the platform's most popular feature among most agents is the proprietary offer submission and management system. This feature allows agents to receive offers directly into their eBrokerHouse account from a link they can place in their MLS or on their website. Buyer's agents upload their offers online and the offer can be managed and amended by both parties throughout the offer process. To date, over 500,000 offers have been submitted to eBrokerHouse members through the software. eBrokerHouse offers both a free and paid service for agents. Both versions have the same features, but the paid version allows agents to manage a higher volume of active listings, collaborate with team members and store more files.

How Task Lists Can Improve Your Cash Flow
  There's an oft-repeated phrase heard around the RE Technology offices: "Plan your work and work your plan." It's something our CEO, Victor Lund, says when he's trying to motivate our team to tackle a mountain of work. He's right (as usual)--approaching a to-do list with a plan of attack makes it a) less intimidating, and b) quicker and easier to execute. When Victor trotted out his favorite adage again recently, it reminded me of a feature we've seen across an increasing number of technology solutions--task management. It's a natural fit for transaction management platforms, but we've seen it in CRMs, too, under names like "Activity Plans," "Tasklists," "Checklists," and more. It's a feature that enables agents to manage their processes and keep their workflow under control. For example, let's say an agent acquires a new listing. This event would trigger a to-do list that the agent can follow through the entire life of the transaction, effectively preventing important details from slipping through the cracks. When implemented at the brokerage level, task management features serve a similar purpose. Brokers can use them to keep track of all their agents, monitor cash flow and, above all, maintain consistencies and efficiencies throughout the entire office. Today, we're going to take a closer look at how brokers can leverage task management to improve how transactions are handled and bolster their bottom line. Examine Ways to Automate First, begin by examining opportunities to automate tasks. If your firm is very small, this may not be necessary. The trick is to balance investments in humans versus automation. After all, you don't need a tremendous amount of automation if you're only doing a handful of transactions per year. It's when you begin to juggle transactions that automation via task management becomes worthwhile. In the midst of a transaction, the players involved are highly focused on the details and not on acquiring new deals, new closings, and new listings. Often what happens is that you need to clear out existing transactions before finding new ones. The transaction cycle of a firm or team can be erratic--first you're busy prospecting, then managing deals, then prospecting again. When thing are going well and you're handling multiple transactions, it's easy to get bogged down--and hinder future opportunities. Failure to automate transactions can contribute to you missing the market. This is a clue that you need to (yes) plan your work and work your plan. Start by knowing what you're expecting from whom. Understand Roles Once you realize that you need a transaction management task list or process, begin constructing it by understanding the roles played in a transaction. Ask who is involved in a transaction? What role do they play, and what triggers their activity? Once you understand that, you can break down activities by the player. Have roles trigger one another. Focus on stages of a transaction where activities are co-dependent on different roles people play. For example, what triggers an inspection to be ordered? Who triggers the ordering of that inspection? Is there a bidding process? Are those people a party to the transaction? What is the scheduling time for an appraisal? What is the lead time? Once an inspection is completed, how long until you get the inspection report back? Who does the inspection report go to? What happens if the inspection report is bad? If you haven't completed a step, the next step doesn't happen. If everything is not in order, the transaction doesn't proceed. One of the great benefits of task management is facilitating a quick transaction. Understand Cash Flow When you think about roles, a part senior management plays is using transaction management to understand cash flow. Task lists and set processes enable transactions to be completed faster, and there's lots of value in being able to expedite closings--namely the time-to-cash gets lower. Think of the benefits of task management in terms of managing cash flow. The quicker the time to close, the more time cash sits in your account rather than someone else's, and the more profitable you are. On the other hand, if a transaction closes in four months instead of three, you've missed 30 days of capital in your bank. Obviously, many fixed business costs are monthly--rent, software fees, utilities, etc. The more productivity you're able to pack into every month, the more profitable you will be. Getting Started If you're a broker without transaction management processes in place, there is likely a contractor in your area who is or has been a transaction coordinator. Consider hiring them to help build out or tweak your process. Leveraging technology is the easiest way to manage processes. If you don't have the resources to hire a contractor to help flesh out your processes, most solutions with task management functionality come with pre-built task lists. Use those as your starting point, and then customize as suits your business. One of the more recent solutions we've reviewed with transaction management features is Realty Commander. They offer task lists that dynamically assign to-do's based of off file dates, and document checklists that can be customized by file type (short sale, traditional, buyer, etc.) and applied with one click. Touching again on the ideas of understanding roles and efficiency, Commander allows documents to be sent to a number of different people for approval, and brokers can set importance on who is necessary for that approval. Therefore, if one person is too busy to approve a document, it moves to another team member, preventing the transaction from slowing down. To learn more, read our product review. Remember, the failure of most brokers or teams is a lack of clearly articulated processes. Instead, any "processes" are in the head of one or a few people. If a process not documented, you're effectively reinventing process with each and every transaction, and that will hinder your success.
