Digital home lending company eOriginal continues to advance the capabilities of its chief software product Closing Center.
With the release of Version 2.3, customers will have access to a new Remote Online Notarization Hub, or RON Hub.
In a press release, the company stated, “ClosingCenter 2.3 further simplifies remote closing day execution with pre-built RON solution integrations that connect borrowers with notary signing agents in a secure digital closing room.”
Notarize recently announced a mobile solution for agents and that it’s moving quickly to encourage adoption across the industry.
The RON Hub can work for fully contactless closings or as a hybrid in which stakeholders are physically present but sign documents digitally, or when only a portion of the deal is closed online.
Converting in-person notarization to an online process has long held back the advancement of a 100 percent electronic home sale.
Although the individual technologies have long existed (online video conference, multifactor authentication, etc.), their combination within the context of home lending was non-existent in the real estate industry. The need to keep business flowing through the turbulent wake of the COVID-19 pandemic ended up pushing RON-tech into the mainstream.
Inman reported in September on eOriginal’s enhancements to its preclose process. And in April of this year, the company signed a formal agreement with national mortgage company Guild Mortgage.
EOriginal was named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list, landing at 473.
