Pavaso involved in multiple partnerships

Pavaso, a digital platform for real estate closings, has partnered with eOriginal and Signature Closers in November 2017.

According to an article on the eOriginal partnership from Housing Wire, “Through the partnership, Pavaso will utilize eOriginal’s electronic promissory note (eNote) and electronic vaulting (eVault) services.

“And as a result, the closing process will become fully digital, which includes the creation, execution and vaulting of an eNote for the delivery to the secondary market.”

Additionally, Pavaso will also bring its digital offerings to Signature Closers. According to an article on National Mortgage Professional Magazine, “The platform accommodates early signing, attorney states, split closings, multiple borrowers, sellers, and more. Mortgage lenders, their business partners and consumers can communicate, collaborate and work in a single virtual location.”

The article continues with a brief look at other aspects of the partnership. “In addition, the relationship will facilitate easier communication, collaboration and secure data exchange among all the transaction’s stakeholders.”
