As part of an effort to simplify the real estate transaction process, Move Inc., which operates Realtor.com for the National Association of Realtors, recently announced an agreement with zipLogix that will bring the zipForm digital library of transaction documents to the Reesio platform, which is a document and transaction management platform that allows the entire real estate transaction to be done online.
Move, which is owned by News Corp, acquired Reesio last year.
Under the new agreement, Reesio users will now be able to use zipForm’s transaction documents, which automate the “repetitive and complex” steps of the real estate transaction by digitally populating information into each form.
According to a release from the companies, the zipForm integration directly into the Reesio platform will create a “seamless interface and easy to manage workflow matched with stringent data security and protection protocols” for the entire transaction.
“The agreement enables real estate professionals to streamline and simplify the paperwork process for customers, and move more efficiently through the transaction process with the confidence and security of a trusted industry solution,” the companies said in a release.
"This agreement is a perfect convergence of two fundamentally aligned platforms built by real estate professionals, for real estate professionals, to help make the process easier and more efficient for our customers and for consumers," said Luke Glass, executive vice president of industry platforms for Move.
"As more and more of the real estate process takes place online, working with trusted providers is absolutely critical,” Glass added. “The integration of zipForm into the Reesio platform offers ease of use as well as ease of mind for real estate professionals, and helps them deliver a vital service in the transaction as expert managers of this complex process."
According to Move, the company also recently integrated Top Producer, Move's marketing and client management system, and launched an integration with property information from nearly 600 multiple listing services across the country.
Move said that the MLS integration allows Reesio's customers to initiate a transaction by easily importing the property information from the MLS.
“The addition of zipForm will empower brokers and agents who use all three products to work seamlessly between Reesio transaction management software, Top Producer CRM software, and zipLogix zipForm software for completing forms,” Move said in a statement.
"ZipLogix is excited to synchronize product offerings with Move to improve the business process and help increase productivity and efficiency for our real estate brokers and agent customers," said zipLogix Chairman of the Board Mark Peterson. "We are especially enthusiastic to be working closely with a company such as Move that shares the vision that great technology serves the purpose of better connecting agents with consumers, strengthening their collaboration and solidifying the agent's role in the transaction.”
