OACIQ Approves Montreal-Based eSignLive E-Signatures on Quebec Real Estate Forms

November 20, 2013

MONTREAL, QC, November 21, 2013 – Silanis Technology, a Montreal-based provider of e-signatures for North American businesses, today announced that l’Organisme d’autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ) has accredited Silanis’ electronic signature solution e-SignLive™ for use by real estate brokers in Quebec. Quebec brokers will now be able to electronically sign mandatory and recommended real estate transaction forms offered through OACIQ, including among others, the promise to purchase, the brokerage contract, the declarations by the seller of the immovable form and the notice of disclosure documents. Brokers can e-sign these and other documents two different ways – either through Silanis’ online signing service e-SignLive or by capitalizing on an existing partnership between Silanis and Faltour, which will see the integration of Silanis’ e-signature with the Faltour Electronic Document Management (EDM) system completed by early 2014. The integration of Silanis e-signatures within Faltour’s electronic documents and records management software will enable agencies and brokers to remain compliant with regulations for the maintenance, preservation and archiving of electronic records. By electronically signing OACIQ forms through Faltour, brokers will be able to keep all electronic documentation digitally stored in a central location. Electronically processing all documents related to a real estate transaction helps not only ensure compliance, it helps close business faster without any need to fax paperwork and chase down missing signatures. “As a Montreal company, Silanis is honored to be the first e-signature provider accredited by the OACIQ for real estate transactions in Quebec. Brokers using our e-SignLive cloud service now have an easy, secure and cost-effective way to get real estate forms signed – from anywhere, at any time, using any web-enabled mobile device,” said Silanis CEO and co-founder Tommy Petrogiannis.
