Realcomp Adds Electronic Signatures
Authentisign Now a Free Subscriber Benefit
Farmington Hills, MI — July 12th, 2012 – e-SignaturesRealcomp, Michigan’s largest Multiple Listing Service, announced today that all subscribers will now have free unlimited access to electronic signatures provided by Instanet Solutions’ Authentisign™ service.
The Federal ESIGN law was enacted in the year 2000 when U.S. President Clinton signed the E-Signature bill giving the same legal validity to an electronic signature as a signature in pen and ink. As REALTORS® and consumers become increasingly comfortable with the security and authenticity of digital signatures, MLSs and Associations are embracing this technology. Authentisign is a fully ESIGN-compliant electronic signature tool that significantly streamlines the process of buying and selling real property.
Karen S. Kage, CEO of Realcomp, said “Our subscribers are thrilled to have Authentisign. They have already started quickly adopting electronic signatures into their daily business. The efficiencies gained are enormous. No more driving documents around town. Literally, listings and contracts can be reviewed and executed by multiple parties in minutes – not hours or days. Authentisign is a great addition to the services Realcomp already receives from Instanet, and we know it will offer our subscribers a distinct advantage in their business.”
“Realcomp has a long-standing partnership with Instanet, added Martin Scrocchi, Instanet’s President & CEO. We are absolutely thrilled adding Authentisign to the Instanet portfolio already in use by REALTORS® in Southeastern Michigan. Authentisign is totally integrated with our other modules, which Realcomp subscribers have used for many years. That means they don’t need to learn a whole new interface to take advantage of electronic signatures. We couldn’t be happier seeing the market rebounding in Realcomp’s area, and we are very privileged to provide software that helps them list and sell homes in the most efficient manner possible.”
