ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
