Cartavi helps real estate professionals manage all the documents in their real estate transactions from anywhere, on any device. Its power comes from how it lets you manage your business on the go. If a client calls and needs to see an appraisal document, for example, you can access that document from your smartphone or tablet and instantly share it with them. Agents can create a "transaction room" for a property and add documents and people (see the example below). The program gives you complete control over who has access to each document. Not everyone you work with may be comfortable with digital documents. Let's say you work with an attorney who uses faxes. Cartavi's integrated digital fax service allows you to send and receive faxes with just a few clicks on your computer or mobile device. That way all parties are happy--you retain the convenience of being digital and mobile while still being able to work with all parties in the manner they're comfortable with. Thanks to integration with eSignature platform DocuSign, you can manage any transaction from start to finish from your computer or mobile device. Tag where a document needs to be signed, seal it in an "envelope" and all parties will be able to sign digitally. You'll never have to struggle to figure out who's signed and who still needs to sign, either--all of this is easily viewed in the transaction room. With DocuSign and Cartavi, everything you need is at your fingertips.

Not All eSignature Platforms are Created Equal
There's been a lot of talk lately about the security of electronic signatures and the legal havoc that using the wrong solution could wreak on your business. That's why we took careful notes when our sister company, the WAV Group, hosted a webinar on this topic last Thursday. Tom Gonser, CEO of DocuSign, Ken Moyle, DocuSign's Chief Legal Officer, Martin Scrocchi, CEO of Instanet Solutions, and Russ Bergeron, President of MRED joined moderator Marilyn Wilson to help webinar attendees: Learn how to ensure that electronic signature solutions are legally viable Better understand how to evaluate electronic signature platforms Couldn't attend the event? No worries! You can watch the full recording below or read our summary on the next page. Legal contracts are a critical part of real estate. Real estate professionals need to be sure they're providing tools to customers that protect their clients' interests and well as their own. It's not always easy to sort out what those tools are, however. A simple search for "electronic signatures" on the App Store or Google Play will yield dozens of results. How can you know which solutions to trust and which to avoid? Knowing what questions to ask and what elements are most important in an eSignature solution is a great place to start. From a legal standpoint, the following two items are most important: Identification - How do you match the person with the signature? Authentication - Once a document is signed, can you demonstrate that it hasn't been tampered with? We can look to banks to find out more about how to evaluate solutions. Many larger banks now provide requirements or recommendations on the type of support electronic signatures must have to be legally viable within their programs. They want to be able to see the entire "story" of a document--where it's been, who's signed it, and more. This can be accomplished via a certificate of completion, a transaction summary that demonstrates authentication procedures, timestamping, audit trail and more. All of these are evidentiary bits that support the integrity of the transaction in case it is ever challenged. When researching solutions, if a company's website or other literature doesn't satisfactorily address authentication and data integrity, keep looking. You can run into trouble later if you don't choose wisely. What Does a Trustworthy Document Look Like? The webinar concluded with a demonstration of what a trustworthy document looks like. Anytime a document is opened, it's checked for validity. A trustworthy document, like the one below, will be verified as having all signatures valid. This document, however, has been tampered with, as evidenced by the message near the top of the screen. The sidebar also shows what parts of the document have been changed. Ready to learn more? These were just a brief overview of points from the webinar. View our recording on page one to listen to advice from our guest experts.
