ICE Launches New E-signing Solution to Simplify Notary Experience

October 14, 2021

ICE Mortgage Technology unveiled a new signing solution that supports unlimited e-signing of digital documents and e-notarization.

Simplifile eSign Events offers agents a streamlined signing workflow, including in-person electronic notarization (IPEN) and remote online notarization (RON), which will ultimately lead to full e-closing capabilities.

“Despite consumer demand for a more digital mortgage experience, we’re still seeing confusion among agents who are trying to make technology decisions based on a myriad of partial solutions that claim efficiencies, but in reality, lack true eNotary acceptance,” said Joe Tyrrell, president of ICE Mortgage Technology. “Simplifile eSign Events actually delivers both the efficiencies and the experience that agents have been looking for, by providing not only a tool that has flexibility built into the customer’s signing needs, but also a single experience, so they can do it all from one secure, consistent place.”

Powered by Simplifile’s eEligibility data, eSign Events provides insight into e-notary acceptance and provides notarization flexibility at the county level. The electronic signing solution supports both agent-driven transactions, such as cash and seller, and will enable lender driven transactions via integration APIs for ICE Mortgage Technology’s eClose partners.

The MISMO-approved e-signing solution offers verification via mobile devices, unlimited e-signing for a low monthly fee, easy access to RON video recordings, plus access to counties that represent nearly 90% of the U.S. population that allow e-recording of documents. By having e-sign capabilities embedded into RON and IPEN, it also provides support for state specific requirements, teleconferencing options eliminating the need for signers and notaries to be in the same location, and offers an extra layer of security by using knowledge based authentication and automated ID verification.
