American Land Title Association Announces Simplifile as an Elite Provider

Washington, DC, March 17, 2015 — The American Land Title Association (ALTA) has announced that Simplifile has been named an Elite Provider.

ALTA’s Elite Provider Program is comprised of premier service providers committed to offering comprehensive benefits to the title insurance and settlement services industry. Elite Providers promote the highest industry standards and provide effective solutions for ALTA members’ critical needs.

“I am happy that Simplifile has joined our growing ALTA Elite Provider program,” said Michelle Korsmo, ALTA’s chief executive officer. “We are constantly working to provide our members with the resources to find businesses with a proven track record of trusted products and services. The Elite Provider program connects ALTA members with technology and service providers across the land title insurance industry.”

Simplifile is a secure, electronic delivery liaison between counties and document submitters. Simplifile makes it easy to e-record deeds, mortgages and other documents online in minutes. Simplifile also tracks recordings, immediately addresses any rejections and increases the security of documents filed with the county. Simplifile helps satisfy the fourth and fifth pillars of ALTA’s Best Practices, including the requirement to record within 48 hours of closing. Every day, more documents are electronically recorded through Simplifile than any other e-recording service. All that’s needed to start e-recording with Simplifile is a computer, high-speed Internet access and a scanner.

As an ALTA Elite Provider, Simplifile offers ALTA members a license fee waiver for the first year. Additionally, the service fee for the first five documents is free for ALTA members.
