PropertyInfo Corp.(PIC), a Stewart company, announces its new web-based version of eSecureFile for attorneys, title agencies and lenders. The web-based version introduces increased speed and efficiency to the title recording process allowing for electronic recordation of documents in minutes.
"In today's real estate market the 'race-to-record' is an all important facet of doing business," said Pat Vaden, president and CEO of PropertyInfo Corp. "And, to help reduce gap risk, documents should be recorded with their county recorder immediately after closing. With eSecureFile's state-of-the-art, web-based technology it takes only minutes to electronically submit land records for recording – virtually eliminating travel time and expenses associated with visiting the local courthouse."
With eSecureFile, customers enter the file number, select the document type, upload the documents and submit the packages electronically. Where electronic filing is permitted, eSecureFile supports all county requirements for recordation. In addition, PIC provides real-time reporting of transactions to better manage accounts.

- Digital authentication and secure transmission
