Accelerate digital closings with Proof

With $347B worth of real estate closings secured by Proof, we are transforming how consumers buy, sell, or borrow money for their home.

One platform for all of your real estate transactions

Execute eClosings faster with online notarization

With Proof’s online notarization capability, you can offer a full eClosing to your home buyers and sellers. Title agents eliminate up to 157 minutes per closing and lenders eliminate up to 7 days from the funding cycle time. The Proof platform allows you to digitize full eClosings, HELOCs and loan modifications with online notarization.

Collect signatures with hybrid eClosings and eSign

Streamline your customer experience with eSign. With Hybrid eClosings, real estate companies reduce in-person meeting time by 99 minutes and reduce error rates by up to 31%. You can also eSign other trailing documents like customer disclosures and funds disbursement instructions.

Protect against fraud with Proof

Proof transactions work similarly to eSign, but includes a robust identity verification process to make sure a seller is who they say they are. It’s a perfect fit for early in the settlement process when you might be suspicious of fraud. With Proof transactions, a signer can only access a document if their biometric selfie can be positively matched to the government-issued ID.

On the Proof platform

1st

Platform to facilitate an online mortgage and real estate closing

More than a signature, it’s Proof

The Proof Engine® knows 4.5M closing eligibility rules

You deserve a platform that tells you the best way to eClose. The Proof platform references the closing type, property address, recording county, online notarization laws, the title partner’s operating states, and underwriters to determine the closing options available for your signer. It also accounts for nuances like “papering out” laws. Proof helps the real estate industry take the guesswork out of digitizing the closing experience.

Integrations that fit into your existing workflows

Proof integrates with all the critical real estate platforms from loan origination system, title production software and eVaults. Our platform works with the system you already use. The platform also allows both title agencies and lenders to collaborate on the same transaction. In the real estate space, we’ve integrated with EllieMae, Docutech, Resware, Softpro, SimpleNexus, Dotloop, eOriginal, DocMagic, and others.

One platform for every closing type

The Proof platform supports both full eClosings and hybrid closings. Title agencies and lenders can complete closings for cash buyers, seller-side transactions, mortgage, refinances, HELOCs and loan modifications with online notarization. It gives mortgage lenders a competitive edge by providing greater efficiencies across the lending lifecycle and improving settlement agent collaboration. Proof gives title agencies immediate business continuity gains in time and cost savings.

Built-in fraud protection

You know the red flags of suspected fraud. Non-owner occupied property? Unencumbered property? Your realtor has never really “met” the seller? That’s the perfect time to use Proof. The Proof platform verifies your signer’s identity using a combination of: SMS authentication, credential analysis, knowledge-based authentication, biometric comparison and third-party database checks.
