IDS Achieves Sustained Mortgage Document Preparation Growth in 2016

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Mortgage document preparation vendor International Document Services, Inc. (IDS), announced it has achieved another year of sustained growth, increasing its total document volume by 55 percent over 2015. IDS also experienced a 43 percent increase in initial disclosure volume and a 73 percent increase in the use of its E-Signature technology. The company also acquired eMortgage vendor Encomia in September.

"Following the release of TRID, we saw many of our existing customers, who were already using IDS for closing documents, add on initial disclosures and E-Sign to ensure timely, consistent execution of the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure," said Mark Mackey, vice president of IDS. "With the Encomia acquisition, IDS is better positioned than ever to support its customers' journey along the path to eMortgage, wherever they may be in the process."

In addition to new business growth, IDS also experienced significant internal growth, increasing its total staff by 43 percent. Of the employees added in 2016, 48 percent of the new hires were in development, and 33 percent were in customer service.

"IDS has always prided itself on developing its technology in-house and providing exemplary service to its customers so it's no surprise that our continued growth required adding additional staff to these two departments," Mackey added. "IDS remains committed as ever to providing our customers with sophisticated technology and superior customer service and will continue to invest in these areas as growth and need demand."

International Document Services (IDS) Acquires eMortgage Vendor Encomia

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Mortgage document preparation vendor International Document Services (IDS), a division of The Reynolds and Reynolds Company, today announced its acquisition of Encomia, an established provider of electronic mortgage (eMortgage) solutions to depository and non-depository lending institutions.

Encomia’s eClosing platform is designed to streamline electronic loan applications and closings. The platform and software tools, which are used by major mortgage lenders, also provide for secure electronic document storage (eVault), eSignature capture and eValidation, as well as asset and income verification services. Through this acquisition, IDS is positioned to deliver a broader complement of electronic mortgage origination and closing services to its clients and the industry at large.

“When you look at the current mortgage industry landscape, the eMortgage is inevitable – it’s a matter of ‘when,’ not ‘if,’ and IDS wants to be at the forefront of delivering the tools and services our clients need to make the eMortgage a reality within their organizations,” said Mark Mackey, vice president and general manager of IDS. “IDS has historically developed its technology in-house, but we felt there was something to be said for bringing to our clients a proven eMortgage solution that has a demonstrable track record of success in some of the largest lending institutions in the country. To us, that’s what Encomia brings to the table and why this acquisition made perfect sense.”

Mackey also noted that regulators, led by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), support the push to eClosing, typically pointing to the benefits in efficiency for the mortgage industry and the convenience, transparency and security for consumers.

“Through the Encomia acquisition and other planned additions, IDS is injecting itself deeper into the eMortgage continuum, which starts with docs and moves through eSign, eNotary, eClosing, eNotes and, ultimately, eVault,” Mackey said. “Adding innovative technologies like Encomia’s bolsters our core strengths while also extending our ability to deliver greater efficiencies for lenders and a more transparent, rewarding experience for consumers.”

Encomia is the first acquisition by IDS since becoming part of Reynolds and Reynolds in October 2015. Terms of the transaction were not announced.
