Lone Wolf Technologies | September 07, 2022
Lone Wolf Technologies (Lone Wolf), the leader in North American residential real estate software, announced today the rollout of the company's highly popular digital signature solution, the all-new Authentisign, to Lone Wolf Transactions (zipForm Edition) customers. This rollout will take place nationwide in a phased market approach starting today.
As real estate's most trusted digital signature solution, Authentisign has for over 20 years provided the industry with a way to sign transactions documents quickly, easily, and most importantly, securely. The all-new Authentisign will replace the existing digital signature solution built into Transactions (zipForm Edition) and represents a significant improvement in how real estate professionals manage and complete signings.
In the new Authentisign, users will experience:
Improved signing creation workflows that remove the need for a signing wizard
An improved signer experience that times signature prompts to match user interaction
Performance improvements that mean users can complete signings up to 60% faster
With these improvements, users will be able to complete signings in just three easy steps—so they can process and close deals faster than ever while providing a simpler experience for homebuyers and sellers.
Since its original release in 2021, the all-new Authentisign has received over 1.8 million ratings from agents, buyers, and sellers alike with a 4.5 out of 5 average. Of the 42 million signings completed in Lone Wolf solutions in the last year, 17 million have been completed using the all-new Authentisign.
"The new Authentisign was not only easier and faster than the previous version; it was also easier and faster than any other signature solution I've used, The new transaction workspace is a massive time-saver for real estate agents, and the signing experience for clients is incredibly intuitive."
- Janice Poetsch, Chief Administrative Officer at Fair Realty
This release, which comes on the heels of Lone Wolf's new forms editor, features the same groundbreaking technology designed to simplify real estate for everyone involved, Together, these two solutions will go a long way toward modernizing the forms and signing process as well as the entire buyer and seller journey,said Dan Fortin, Senior Product Manager at Lone Wolf.
Real estate has migrated from fragmented point solutions to digitally connected experiences, and transactions are the heart of it all, By connecting improved signatures to transactions through the all-new Authentisign, we're creating a central hub where real estate professionals can access and provide to their own clients the only truly connected start-to-finish experience in the industry,said Sean Wheeler, CTO at Lone Wolf.
