IDS Expands eClosing Platform to Include eNotes, Rebrands as Solitude Solution

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Mortgage document preparation vendor International Document Services, Inc. (IDS), announced it has expanded the capabilities of its eClose platform to include eNotes. Recently branded as Solitude Solution, the platform's eClosing capabilities allow lenders and borrowers to execute loans digitally.

"IDS has always taken pride in our ability to anticipate our clients' needs, and our response to their urgent need for eClosing and eMortgage technology in the current climate has been no different," said IDS Vice President and General Manager Mark Mackey. "Our customers are already familiar with our easy-to-use eSign platform, and with our eNote capabilities, customers have the ability to digitally deliver a mortgage. As the mortgage industry strives to continue offering borrowers the ability to move forward in the loan process throughout these troubled times, IDS is proud to be part of the solution."

Solitude Solution offers midnight automation capabilities, allowing documents to be sent to the borrowers early for review and automatically become active for eSign on the closing date. Additionally, Solitude Solution is built to deliver documents to the appropriate parties, ensuring that borrowers and settlement agents only see the documents they are required to acknowledge, sign, or review.

The platform also includes access to IDS' user-friendly eSign Room, where document signers can review their documents, find the appropriate highlighted signature line and click to sign. The eSign Room also allows borrowers or settlement agents who prefer to ink sign the note to print, ink sign and upload the completed documents into the eSign Room, enabling lenders to maintain digitally-driven loan origination and closing processes.

"With so many variances regarding digital mortgage acceptance across investors, state regulators and other levels, flexibility is a crucial element to any digital mortgage platform," Mackey added. "Solitude Solution was built to ensure that lenders have the latitude to execute their loans as digitally as possible so that they may reap the benefits of a digitally-driven process and provide consistent, reliable service to their borrowers and closing partners."

Designer Brings Awareness to Immunosuppression During Pandemic

BOGART, Ga. -- StickTogether.Family, whose mission is to promote awareness of the impact a community spread virus can have on the immunosuppressed, announced today the creation of a universal icon that visually communicates being immunosuppressed and encourages physical distancing efforts during the current pandemic.

"I felt the need to do what I can to protect my wife, a breast cancer survivor, for those times when venturing out in public was no longer unavoidable," said Michael Gonyea, founder of StickTogether.Family and designer of the emblem. "I thought ahead to when people would slowly begin returning to normal routines and social activities before a COVID-19 vaccine was widely available - and how she would have to deal with that transition."

The new symbol displays a lowercase "-i" in white text within a bright red circle reflecting a less than a 100% level of immunity and also referring to an algebraic interpretation of taking oneself (the "i" pronoun) out of the social interaction equation. The symbol retains global meaning in many languages that use the Latin alphabet such as; English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and more.

Items utilizing the iconic symbol are available now on a variety of communication accessories. Pin buttons, stickers, magnets, T-shirts, and more can be found at https://sticktogether.family/.

A portion of each sale will go toward Camp Sunshine, a Georgia-based charity that enriches the lives of children with cancer, supporting an immunosuppressed population.

About StickTogether.Family:

Founded in April of 2020, StickTogether.Family is an entity created by Michael Gonyea. Originating as a singular effort to help his wife and family navigate returning to public and private interactions, the mission quickly grew to help all individuals who are immunosuppressed, immunocompromised, or otherwise at-risk communicate their elevated risk when exposed to a community spread virus.

About Camp Sunshine:

Camp Sunshine enriches the lives of Georgia's children with cancer and their families through recreational, educational and support programs. Camp Sunshine is committed to providing magical moments for children with cancer and to building a community of hope where families with similar experiences draw strength from one another amid common understanding.

Fanplayr Data Shows Retailers Are Making Up for Lost Sales

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Fanplayr, a leader in e-commerce intelligence, released figures that give clear insights into the adjustment consumers are making in light of significant lifestyle changes forced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tracking aggregate behavior across clients' sites, the data prove a shift from retail to online purchasing. The results are particularly dramatic in large clothing, sports and kids fashion retailers.

According to analyses of sites with over 20 million visitors per month, key indicators of e-commerce success have risen consistently and simultaneously during the period of time a particular market has been dealing with COVID-19. Visitor traffic, conversion rates and AOV (average order value) have all increased. Simultaneous increases in key indicators is rare, even during peak holiday seasons. Simon Yencken, Founder and CEO of Fanplayr states, "It demonstrates our clients are recapturing some lost revenues, namely 30- 40%, caused by limited or no store traffic."

For example, the Japanese market has been dealing with COVID-19 longer than the U.S. because of their proximity to the epicenter. Over the period of time from first reports of infection to today, online key indicators have all risen.

This information is critical for retailers scrambling to make up lost profits. It demonstrates that lost revenue from shelter-in-place and school closures can be recovered from increased online sales, and the overall impact can be mitigated even more with strategies to increase closure rates of shoppers.

As transactions move increasingly online, revenue attributable to AI and behavioral personalization is also increasing. Yencken says Fanplayr's behavioral intelligence responds to anonymous online visitors by understanding their intent, based on their online behavior, and then responding appropriately. This removes the need for third-party tracking to increase conversion rates.

"Companies must focus online to capture every potential sale," says Yencken. "Without segmentation strategies, companies are losing potential sales, something no one can afford to do in this business landscape."

About Fanplayr

Fanplayr is a leader e-commerce behavioral data, using machine learning and AI to enable businesses to increase conversion rates and revenue, collect more leads, and retarget visitors with personalized recommendations during and after the shopping experience. Fanplayr is headquartered in Menlo Park, California.

Top of Mind Launches PartnerNetwork Offering Lenders and Referral Partners a Simple Solution for Managing RESPA Compliance and Co-Branded Marketing Collateral

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Top of Mind Networks (Top of Mind), a leader in customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing automation software for the mortgage lending industry, today announced it has launched PartnerNetwork, a Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) solution that makes it easy for lenders and referral partners to co-brand marketing collateral with control and confidence.

RESPA's guidelines, which prohibit lenders and real estate partners from receiving any "thing of value" in exchange for referrals, challenge lenders' ability to co-brand marketing material in an operationally pragmatic and compliant manner.

Lenders have typically responded by (1) eliminating co-branding initiatives altogether, thereby weakening marketing relationships in the name of risk mitigation; (2) fully leveraging marketing relationships and assuming the risk of co-branding missteps as a necessary cost of doing business; or (3) shouldering the substantial burden of calculating and recovering the value of each co-branded campaign from marketing partners. PartnerNetwork eliminates the need for mortgage lenders to choose between strong marketing relationships, regulatory compliance and operational ease by providing a simple, comprehensive solution for managing all co-branded marketing content.

Top of Mind has created the Surefire PartnerNetwork to enable digital value sharing of co-branded assets in the SurefireCRM platform. Lenders can control originators' ability to co-brand with marketing partners based on their approach to RESPA compliance and can easily identify partner participants in their database. Marketing partners do not have to repeat the registration process to co-brand with additional lender partners.

"We're very excited to offer a platform solution that allows our clients to manage RESPA compliance with control and confidence, not only for print marketing, but for digital marketing as well," said Top of Mind Co-founder and Chief Product Officer David Orsini. "This opens doors to new relationship-building opportunities for lenders who have been avoiding co-branding because of the complexity of RESPA compliance."

For more information about PartnerNetwork, please visit https://pages.topofmind.com/demo-partner-network.

About Top of Mind Networks:

Founded in 2003, Atlanta-based Top of Mind Networks (https://www.topofmind.com) started as a bootstrapped direct-mail marketing company. Today, the company is recognized as the mortgage industry's most-relied-upon provider of marketing automation and creative content solutions. From individuals to enterprise lenders, Top of Mind's SurefireCRM helps thousands of mortgage professionals win new business, earn repeat business and deserve referral business. With intuitive, "set it and forget it" workflows and award-winning content, mortgage professionals are able to effortlessly maintain and deepen their emotional connections with clients.

Brand Solutions for Lockdown: Why not Launch your Product with AR?

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Immersive Augmented Reality developer INDE launches a range of technology initiatives to help launch and promote brands during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Where once events provided an opportunity to create a human connection, we are now left with warehoused products and siloed audiences; and where retail spaces once offered a chance to buy, try and explore, we are now left with a two-dimensional surface that doesn't afford the same level of connection that physical retail once did. The unique affordances of Augmented Reality in all its forms presents a solution to some of the problems that we're all currently facing," said Alex Poulson, CEO of INDE.

INDE, the award-winning immersive studio specialising in AR has moved to provide brands and retailers with technologies that enable product promotion and demonstration via mobile devices to counter some of the key issues arising from widespread store closures and conventional advertising budget cuts.

Through its WebAR, MobileAR and Virtual Reality technologies, illustrated by showcases and use cases, INDE offers practical and cost-effective access to these frontier technologies.

WebAR offers a unique, highly immersive platform to allow AR product demo without the need to download "another app." WebAR can offer 2D and 3D experiences on iOS and Android, representing a great way for brands to explore the potential of AR marketing without the need for a dedicated app build.

MobileAR can be used to deliver product configuration, as well as other visual effects using rich media AR straight from iOS/Android. MobileAR represents the choice for brands looking for longer-term engagement with B2B and B2C brands.

Virtual Reality brings live events and launches to life for brands that are unable to launch public events. INDE's VR development gives brands and retailers the chance to broadcast 360 and 180-degree video in both live and recorded formats. VR is visually very powerful, allowing brands the opportunity to really engage users in product launches.

Spice Homes Cures Real Estate Blues with Video Calls Built into Property Listings

ST. GEORGE, Utah -- The real estate market, with its reliance on in person contact, is struggling as a result of social distancing. To help solve this challenge, Shimmer Media LLC today announced the latest Homes edition of its Spice mobile app. Spice Homes puts owners back in touch with buyers by integrating live video calls directly into each real estate property listing.

Each listing contains a video call button, which a visitor may use to call the listing agent or owner. To ensure calls are only received when the listing owner is ready, availability is controlled by an easy-to-use calendar. Calls cannot be placed outside of the calendared times.

In addition to this on-demand calling, an agent or owner can send a private video call invitation by way of email or text message. To prevent video call hacking, the invitation can only be used by a single recipient. The invitation also includes an expiration date, after which it may not be used to place a call. The recipient places the video call to the agent or owner simply by clicking the link in the email or text message.

Spice Homes supports properties for sale and rent, as well as short-term and vacation rentals. A new listing can be created in just a few minutes using photos and video on the mobile device.

Property listings are created with a concise set of features, including price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage and amenities. Spice visitors can filter on any of these features when searching homes for sale, rent or short-term occupancy.

For short term rentals Spice Homes also provides an availability calendar. Availability can be specified up to six months in advance, and the listing owner can mark off dates as they are booked. Visitors to the listing readily see when the property is available. Short term rentals can also be filtered on the Spice Homes map by arrival and departure date.

A free Spice business starter account includes up to 5 listings. Each listing includes a video calling, a description and photo, an address with a map location, and an optional one-minute HD streaming on-demand video.

Spice Homes edition is now available for iPhones and Android devices in the Apple app store and Google Play store.

CIENCE Debuts at #31 in The Financial Times Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2020

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The Financial Times announced the inaugural listing of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in the Americas, and lead generation company CIENCE Technologies placed No. 31 out of 500 companies measured. This ranking of the fastest-growing companies signifies a unique look at the most successful companies at a perilous and unpredictable time.

In these unprecedented times where there is so much economic uncertainty, risk, and pain, the ability to generate new business is arguably more important than ever before.

Despite the coronavirus, unemployment, and the current recessionary environment, CIENCE also continues to grow, including adding jobs and new customers.

More about FT and the Top 500 Methodology

The FT Americas' Fastest Growing Companies 2020 is a list of the top 500 companies in the Americas that have achieved the highest growth in revenues between 2015 and 2018.

The project was advertised online and in print, allowing all eligible companies to register via the websites created by Statista and the Financial Times.

Helping Powell’s Books and Small Retail Businesses Stay Operational During Pandemic

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Matter Supply Co. responds with a technology solution after Powell's Books layoffs. The company announced today that it will also donate significant efforts to create 20 eCommerce websites for small Portland-area retailers most threatened by closure during the outbreak.

Matter Supply Co. recently developed a Google Chrome extension to help Powell's Books become more visible to shoppers searching for titles on Amazon. Today the company launched its 20 in 20 Program aimed at supporting small brick and mortar retail businesses that are closed during quarantine without websites to sell their inventory.

The program will donate resources to create 20 eCommerce websites within 20 days for Portland business owners who apply and are deemed most at risk for permanent closure. Each site will be available to the selected applicants for $500.

The fee covers initial technology and ancillary service fees only. Portland small business owners can apply to the program now at https://localgoesglobal.com/.

"I love this city. Seeing so many closed store fronts is really difficult. As a small business owner, I feel this is the best way to help my community right now," says Joshua Redshaw, Principal at Matter Supply Co.

The company believes this effort will have more immediate, positive impact on the local business community at a time when small business owners wait in limbo for legislative decisions and scramble to garner other means of support. Matter Supply Co. will pilot the program in Portland, with hopes to expand the effort to other cities in the near future.

"If we can create online stores quickly for small retailers that don't have them, it might help save their brick and mortar locations while we figure out what the future holds," adds Redshaw.

Matter Supply Co. is an independent, Portland-based digital product studio focused on creating digital products and technology solutions that address real problems that people face every day.
