E-signatures and e-notaries: How far will new technology go?

October 14th, 2013 3 comments

A notary’s job is to ensure an individual signing documents appears in person, is properly identified and acknowledges his signature in front of a trusted and impartial witness. The notary is the eyes and ears making sure the signer intends to sign, is competent to sign and is not being forced to sign the document. Technology and legislation, such as the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA), allow notaries and the signers to conduct the entire transaction electronically. but is that the best way?

Ticker Tape Newsletter _Summer 2013

September 20th, 2013 No comments

Hope everyone is ‘back to normal’ after what  seemed to be the ‘Endless Summer ‘ (I saw the movie 32 times – ok, so I was a movie usher..)

We kicked off our summer with a visit to Virginia Beach and introduced Notary Cam at the VA Land Title Association –  right smack in the middle of a tropical storm..Next stop, Alaska. What started out as a simple acceptance to present at the National Association of Secretaries of State Annual convention in Anchorage turned into an off-the-grid adventure well into the depths of Denali State Park-the short of it,  it’s easy to get lost within 6,000,000 acres! And for all you Yankee/Boston fans, the mosquito’s chanted “who’s your daddy? all week long! Yes, Deet became my new best friend. The good news is that, after knowing full well that I was heading into the lion’s den, our virtual and online remote notary/witness service, NotaryCam, received a surprisingly warm reception. Great bunch of folks that really care about the trust, security and valuable services offered by the professional notary.

As I look back I wonder whatever happened to the lazy days of Summer? We had an extremely busy one so I needed to come out of the ‘woods’ much sooner than I would have preferred. The team back on the mainland did a fabulous job of keeping the wheels greased ..and we welcomed many new e-Sign clients to the team: Prudential St Louis (600 agents), Simple Choice RE, St Louis Association, St Charles, County, Columbus Realtors, Athens (GA) Assoc, Mobile(AL) Assoc, Georgia RE Assoc, Greater Black Hills Assoc of the Dakotas, Southeast Alaska, Northern VA Assoc, CA Apartment Assoc , SF Apartment Assoc., many local Pillar To Post home inspectors across No America, US Global Mail and Hallmark Escrow (one the largest in CA).

We also went live with NotaryCam. (In beta for nearly a year and after nearly a decade after processing our first electronic notarization) Experiencing double digit monthly growth, the stories of how we helped so many are priceless: TOMI Entertainment Magazine interview

  • Charles Schwab client traveling in Germany notarized trust agreement
  • Busy Los Angeles doctor and his also busy CEO wife applaud the NotaryCam convenience
  • Businessman from Washington needing a notarization while traveling in Thailand-closest notary 3 hour train ride away (each way)
  • Minnesota Law firm needed to file affidavit in court less than 24 hours – client in China
  • Soldier in Iraq at risk of losing refinance rate and loan executes power of attorney
  • Hundreds of US  citizens sought out NotaryCam after hours/weekends
  • Chinese government accepts NotaryCam from Indiana couple – 21 days earliest appt at Embassy
  • NotaryCam professional notary prevents fraudulent activity by Florida couple traveling in Russia.

Enjoy your ‘back to school’ mindset and happy year end-only 100 days left!

Why Most Innovation Fails

February 13th, 2013 No comments

Why most innovation fails-there is a better way but I just didn’t know about it!

I was speaking to a friend about NotaryCam, our remote long distance e-Notarizations, when the thought struck me – what does it really take to get disruptive and game changing technology into the mainstream? Let me take a step back and share some thoughts/lessons learned over the past decade.

By now you must have heard about the ‘electronic signature revolution’ and that paper on pen is gone? Truth be told, although the average consumer may have some awareness, most do not know of the many  practical applications available that could actually change their lives each and every day. Despite all the chest pounding and vaporware you see/read every day, according to experts, “global adoption today sits at 1% but going to 50% over next couple of years”. For those that haven’t followed as close as we have you might be very surprised to learn that the US E-Sign Act is coming up on its 13th anniversary, enacted on June 30, 2000, affording e-Signatures legal equivalence to wet-signed originals.

So a somewhat savvy consumer might ask “Hey, I e-Sign my name every time I make a purchase at the grocery store and Home Depot so why am I still receiving documents requesting my ‘wet-signature’ – via email, fax, couriers, snail mail or FedEx”? Reality is you probably did not know that you could have saved a ton of money and time if your service provider would have advised you of the readily available alternative and ‘convenient’ options.

In general, we all believe that ‘only’ the consumer will decide the value of any new innovation but unfortunately, there are many other partners that stand between the innovator and the end-user consumer– in the real estate/mortgage industry that would include lenders, title companies, escrow settlement agents, county recorders, secretaries of state, secondary investors, and the many disparate standard setting groups. So when a borrower/buyer gets a call at the 11th hour that the “loan docs are in-drop everything we only have an hour to get these signed” – you now understand why they didn’t hear ‘by the way, you have an option to legally sign and notarize these documents over the Internet in 5 minutes in your pajamas’? Nothing more than eco–system friction, hence, 1%  global adoption!

Another real world example (and quite frankly what prompted this post), we received a call the other day from an attorney that was in a dilemma and how to get documents for signature to his clients traveling overseas – he received a FedEx quote for more than $125 with a two week turnaround..his decision was a no-brainer, correct? Wrong, he wasn’t comfortable with change and since his client was paying the costs anyway…..I’m certain the client end-user never received the option that they could have executed these agreements on their smart phone or computer in less than 5 minutes at more than a 95% savings.

There is a ‘Better Way’- if only the benefactor knew about it!
