Paperless Transactions a Growing Reality With Stewart's New SureClose Release

September 17, 2004

HOUSTON, Stewart Realty Solutions (SRS), a provider of Web-based transaction management systems to the real estate, closing and mortgage industries, has released version 5.4a of its SureClose(R) transaction management system (TMS).

"This latest upgrade provides breakthrough simplicity for the digital transformation and management of paperless files for home sales, purchases and mortgage loan refinancings," said Kelly Hawkins, SRS vice president and chief operating officer.

After crossing the half million online transactions mark in August, the summer 2004 SureClose release is seeing about 50,000 new transactions per month managed online, a half million documents digitized monthly and 10 million Web page views monthly.

"This release delivers powerful new document bar-coding technology, a key component of helping customers reach their goal of a paperless office within their specific usage patterns and high volume workflow," added Hawkins. "These latest enhancements further distinguish SureClose as the only TMS platform that's truly delivering today on the promise of paperless file management. Other vendors are talking about it, but our customers are already managing their formerly hard copy files in a fully paperless environment right now, today."
