Lender Processing Services(LPS) Real Estate Group integrated the electronic signature platform created by Seattle-based DocuSign into its DocCentral document management software. The new functionality eliminates the need for faxes, regular mail, traditional paper documents and reduces courier service costs in an ever-increasing paperless mortgage origination environment. “The integration of DocuSign and DocCentral will make it even easier to conduct real estate transactions while realizing the benefits of digital signatures and electronic document-sharing and retention,” LPS Real Estate Group senior vice president of transaction and document management solutions Walt Clark said in a statement. Once documents are electronically signed, DocCentral stores the information on off-site servers to provide a safe repository for the sensitive information. Write to Austin Kilgore.
