Spokane Association of REALTORS® Chooses Instanet Solutions
NWMLS, Spokane and Instanet Partner to Deliver Paperless System
Spokane, WA – November 11, 2015 – Through a unique partnership between Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) and the Spokane Association of REALTORS®, Instanet Solutions will be a member benefit in eastern Washington. This includes InstanetForms®, DocBox®, TransactionDesk® and Authentisign® as a service to members of the Spokane Association.
The Spokane Association of REALTORS® serves approximately 1,600 members. As part of this deal announced today, Spokane’s members will receive Instanet’s full paperless platform and will be tied directly into Washington’s statewide real estate forms & contracts which are licensed through NWMLS. Members will also have unlimited access to integrated electronic signatures, online document storage, and transaction management tools as part of this comprehensive service.
Martin Scrocchi, CEO of Instanet Solutions commented, “We are very happy to partner with NWMLS in Washington to deliver our system to REALTORS® in Spokane. By leveraging NWMLS’s large membership, we were able to drive the software licensing cost down for Spokane’s membership. This partnership also helps grow our client base in the Northwest so we are tremendously excited to have an opportunity like this with NWMLS, our long-time customer. Plus, Spokane’s members will be the first to have access to Instanet’s brand new TransactionDesk user interface which brings a new level of interaction between the agent, the broker, their documents and their data.”
“Our relationship with Instanet began when NWMLS launched the Authentisign product for electronic signatures a few years ago,” commented Tom Hurdelbrink, CEO and President of NWMLS. “Besides traditional MLS services, NWMLS has been operating its own forms platform for almost 30 years and is the proprietor of standard real estate forms for its member real estate professionals and for Washington REALTORS®. Last year’s addition of the InstanetForms platform and the document management tools, joined with electronic signatures, has supplied a consistent experience for Northwest MLS members and provides them with a very efficient and effective way to serve their clients. We are excited to work closely with the Spokane Association of REALTORS® as they now roll out TransactionDesk functionality to their members.”
“The Spokane Association of REALTORS® is thrilled to enter into an agreement with Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) that will serve our members by providing access to Instanet’s brand new TransactionDesk”, said Jack Kestell, 2015 SAR President. “The Spokane Association of REALTORS®, through this agreement with NWMLS will continue our efforts to bring state of the art services to our MLS Brokers.”
