The title and settlement industry has recently experienced significant changes and been forced to quickly implement practices that had previously been nothing more than distant plans. While these challenges have looked different for everyone, across the board they’ve served as a catalyst for new opportunities and an unprecedented, industry-wide move to incorporate eClosing into the closing process.
eClosing, at its most basic, is electronic execution of closing documents. Beyond this, the boundaries of eClosings are blurry and not well-defined. eClosing can take several forms and look different from company to company and region to region due, in large part, to a strong dependence on available technology and state regulations.
Here’s a look at the variety of ways RamQuest customer can execute eClosings with seamless integrations to our RamQuest title production solutions:
Remote Online Notary (RON):
A wholly electronic process where the integration of RamQuest’s production solution with your RON partner ensures an efficient transfer of information and secure document sharing.
