Snapdocs Unveils New Integration to Improve Closing Workflow

July 25, 2023

Snapdocs launched a new integration between its Digital Closing and Notary Scheduling platforms.

With Connected Closings, according to Snapdocs, customers can reduce closing times by at least a day and a half. Snapdocs also said settlement companies can return scanbacks two-times faster by eliminating manual tasks and borrowers electronically sign documents prior to the closing appointment more than 90% of the time.

“Lender and settlement workflows have historically been completely fragmented, resulting in errors and wasted time,” said Aaron King, Snapdocs chair and founder. “This industry-first innovation is a win-win for both parties. Lenders feel more in control with visibility and access to the real-time information around the signing. Meanwhile, settlement can increase revenue opportunities by providing a digital experience lenders actually want to use. This results in more efficient closings and better business results for everyone. There’s nothing on the market like it.”

Connected Closings reduces the unnecessary, back-and-forth communication by offering seamless data exchange, automatic document sharing between all parties, and real-time updates of the signing appointment, notary search, and closing documents. By unifying Snapdocs Digital Closing and Snapdocs Notary Scheduling workflows, Connected Closings ensures a perfect signing and closing experience every time.

“At a time when real estate transaction volumes have slowed, the ability to digitally collaborate with lenders gives us a valuable edge,” said Melanie Miller, senior operations manager of BCHH. “It removes manual tasks and reduces errors, while automatically sending signing updates to ensure that the lender, our scheduler, and the notary are perfectly in sync. It makes our jobs much easier and helps us stand out to our lenders.”

For lenders, one of the largest hurdles for digital closing adoption is driving settlement adoption of new technology and workflows. Connected Closings provides an incentive for Title companies to become more engaged in the digital closing due to its increased transparency, improved communication, and streamlined coordination.

“We’ve been using Snapdocs eClose for just under two years and the addition of Connected Closings has been a game changer by improving our communication and real-time visibility with our settlement partners and notaries,” said Desiree Kirkland, senior vice president of closer operations for The Federal Savings Bank. “The implementation of Connected Closings has also been paramount in coordinating with settlement partners, saving us time, money and resources, while delivering the ultimate borrower experience.”
