Instanet Solutions, an industry leader in promoting and developing paperless and mobile real estate technologies, will provide a complete range of real estate technology tools for members of Northwest Multiple Listing Service. The multi-year agreement, announced in July, includes online forms, document management, cloud storage for real estate documents, electronic signatures, and fax to email services.
Tom Hurdelbrink, president and CEO of Northwest MLS, said the selection of Instanet followed studies and reviews of various suppliers. Referring to an existing relationship with Instanet as the provider of Authentisign, an online e-signature service, Hurdelbrink said, "As a vendor, Instanet has been very responsive and attentive to us."
Hurdelbrink also noted the integration of the Instanet forms platform, the document management tools, and electronic signatures in one consistent experience would "provide our members with a very efficient and effective way to serve their clients and customers."
Instanet Solutions has provided its electronic signature solution, Authentisign, to Northwest MLS members for nearly two year. It latest version, Authentisign2Go, which works on iPads and other tablets, is expected to become available MLS members soon.
Instanet operates from offices in the United States and Canada. Since 2009, its 400,000-plus licensed, paid users of its tools have processed more than 160 million pages of electronic documents, saving millions of pages of paper.
