Montreal, QC, December 14 2009 – Silanis Technology, the leader in electronic signature process management, today announced that the latest release of ApproveIt eVault Manager enables mortgage providers, auto-financers and equipment leasers to move more quickly to straight through processing of e-contracts and e-mortgages. Already adopted by Open Dealer Exchange, Stewart Title, major finance companies and lenders, the solution reduces the cycle times, costs, data errors and risks of selling, securitizing and syndicating loans, leases and mortgages.
The new, ready-to-use portal and management console provides a turnkey solution for accessing the full functionality of the ApproveIt eVault Manager where the e-contracts and e-mortgages can be securely transferred between electronic vaults, and then stored, managed, and verified electronically as being authoritative copies under ESIGN, UETA and UCC 9-105 requirements. With the new console, document custodians, lenders, investors, dealers, auditors and other personnel can access documents in the e-vault according to their permission levels in order to carry out various operations for which they are authorized.
“Selling, securitizing and syndicating loans, leases and mortgages involve a complex system of pricing and approvals that leads to increased risks, higher costs and a lack of transparency when processed manually in paper format,” said Tommy Petrogiannis, President and Co-Founder of Silanis Technology. “The ApproveIt eVault Manager eliminates these problems by enabling a financing transaction to be processed electronically from start to finish.”
Loans, leases and mortgages that are signed electronically using Silanis’ companion solution, the ApproveIt Web Server, can be transferred electronically from the point of sale directly to an e-vault using ApproveIt eVault Manager. This eliminates lengthy shipping delays and costs, and reduces the risk of terms and conditions on loan documents being different from the application which results in the loan being delayed and documents being returned for re-works. Using SMART documents for e-mortgages, notes can be transferred in from other e-closing systems as well.
ApproveIt eVault Manager protects these high value records throughout their lifetime as ownership is transferred between various parties and electronic vaults with the assurance that they are the authoritative copies. Legal control is maintained during creation, storage, and transfer by ensuring that a single authoritative copy of the record is unique and identifiable; allowing only the secured party or its designated custodian to transfer, store, or change the identified assignee of the authoritative copy; and assuring the record cannot be altered, except as permitted, and identifying unauthorized revisions and non-authoritative copies.
ApproveIt eVault Manager is based on a registry that securely tracks the assignment and location of loans, leases and mortgage contracts. It also performs all required operations on the documents stored in the system. E-Vault storage is handled through a database that is in turn controlled by the registry. Documents can be encrypted for additional security and multiple storage databases can be controlled by a single registry allowing segregated storage for multiple lenders and investors.
The new ApproveIt eVault Manager Console enables organizations to get to market faster by providing a ready-to-use portal and management console for accessing the solution’s powerful administration, transaction, pooling, search, and review and audit functionality. System administrators, for example, can now easily configure the solution, register users and assign roles and permissions using the management console. Registered users can register documents or and transfer ownership or location via the portal. Pooled operations can also be easily created and assigned using the portal, and records can be quickly searched, reviewed and audited.
“Maintaining an end-to-end electronic process from loan closing right through to securitization benefits all parties involved,” said Petrogiannis. “Lenders receive funds faster, while borrowers minimize their risks by having greater visibility into the quality of loans.”
