Landata Systems Inc. and Stewart Realty Solutions, wholly owned subsidiaries of Stewart Title Co., will merge to form Stewart Transaction Solutions, company officials announced this week.


The new company combines Landata Systems, a company that has provided technology solutions for the title industry for the past 27 years, with Stewart Realty Solutions, a company formed two years ago to provide online transaction management to the real estate, closing and mortgage industries.


“This merger will improve Stewart’s organization and focus to provide industry-leading e-solutions for the real estate transaction process,” said Stewart Morris Jr., president, Stewart Title Co., in a statement.


Stewart Transaction Solutions will manage product development, integration, infrastructure and marketing – combining our company’s and outside … technologies with a customer-centric strategy and moving beyond our Stewart Title office network to the real estate industry as a whole.”


Key Stewart technologies being handled by the new company include the SureClose online transaction management system, the eClosingRoom electronic closing platform (developed by Stewart Title and Silanis Technology), the AIM for Windows title production system, and the TitleSearch title plant, document imaging and search analysis systems.


Mike Davis serves as chief executive officer of Stewart Transaction Solutions, and Travis Wright serves as the company’s president and director of business development. Davis had served as president of Landata Systems and Wright had served as chief executive officer of Stewart Realty Solutions. Davis will remain as chief information officer of Stewart Title’s parent company, Stewart Information Services Corp., according to the announcement.



“Bringing more control of the development, support and business services under one roof will better serve our customers and better focus our efforts to generate revenue on sales of our technology,” said Davis. “Aligning the experience of Landata Systems with the transaction management expertise of Stewart Realty Solutions will provide a single point of contact for product information, sales and support of the technology that drives the paperless real estate transaction process.”


Wright said SureClose users have put about 1.5 million transaction files online, and SureClose is deployed in more than 1,000 title and real estate offices nationwide.


Successes with SureClose and eClosingRoom, he added, are taking the industry “closer to the true paperless transaction than anyone else in the real estate industry. This technology will benefit the consumer, real estate agent and broker, lender, builder and title agent customer segments.”


Wright also said, “This organizational change will sharpen our focus to take these tools from being concentrated on the contract-to-closing phase of the transaction – to the arena where the transaction is paperless from the moment the real estate agent takes a listing, all the way to having the closing documents being archived electronically.”


Stewart Title Co. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Stewart Information Services Corp., a real estate information and transaction management company. Stewart provides title insurance and related information services required for settlement by the real estate and mortgage industries through more than 8,000 policy-issuing offices and agencies in the United States and international markets.


Stewart also provides post-closing lender services, automated county clerk land records, property ownership mapping, geographic information systems, property information reports, flood certificates, document preparation, background checks and expertise in tax-deferred exchanges.
