has announced that retail mortgage lender Guaranteed Rate
can now cut closing times by electronically signing mortgage closing documents in advance via “FlashClose
,” which allows customers to opt-in, review and complete most documents in advance of the notary arriving, saving an hour or more at the closing table–with some averaging a mere 10-minute appointment to provide inked signatures.
“Guaranteed Rate is always looking for ways to simplify the process using innovative technology to enhance the customer experience,” said Jim Hettinger, Executive Vice President of Operations for Guaranteed Rate. “With the successful launch of FlashClose, powered through our partner DocMagic, this tool adds speed, convenience and accuracy to the closing process.”
Dominic Iannitti, President and Chief Executive Officer at DocMagic, said, “Guaranteed Rate is a leader in mortgage technology innovation and collaborating with them on this project has created a solid hybrid eClosing approach that saves a lot of time for both borrowers and closing agents. The fashion in which Guaranteed Rate is leveraging our technology has resulted in the successful adoption of a sound, compliant, secure hybrid eClosing that is unique to their retail lending business strategy.”
