These integrations automate title & escrow companies’ workflows and the dependent workflows for their transaction partners. By providing enterprise-critical functionality and a standardized integration layer, Atlas enables the "connected transaction." This groundbreaking technology streamlines real estate closings from end-to-end for all parties involved in the transaction.
