Qualia Achieves SOC 2 Information Security Certification

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Qualia, the fastest growing provider of title settlement software, announced that it has earned the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants' (AICPA's) Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) certification after completing an independent audit process with a third-party certified public accounting (CPA) firm. The certification serves as independent validation of the effectiveness of Qualia's process, procedures and controls for maintaining data security and the confidentiality of client information.

"Qualia is committed to protecting our customers' security using the most advanced technology and highest standards," said Nate Baker, CEO of Qualia. "As mortgage lenders are increasingly expecting their service providers to verify security controls, our customers are able to guarantee best-in-class security without having to undergo a costly and time-intensive security audit."

Per the AICPA, the SOC 2 report is designed to provide a better understanding of an organization's "internal control[s] ... as it relates to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy." Qualia underwent the SOC 2, Type 1 audit, which analyzes an organization's "system and the suitability of the design of controls" to ensure the organization has adequately met the following criteria:

* Security - The system is protected against unauthorized access.
* Availability - The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
* Processing integrity - System processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely and authorized.
* Confidentiality - Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed.
* Privacy - Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed and destroyed in accordance with the organization's privacy notice.

"Given the sensitive nature of the information that is exchanged during the closing process, maintaining data security and privacy must be paramount for all parties in the transaction," Baker added. "The SOC 2 certification provides a definitive statement of security assurance, allowing our customers to promote their security practices as a competitive differentiator when financial institutions are evaluating a settlement provider."

Qualia Adds Industry-First Custom Reporting to Title Settlement System

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Qualia, the fastest growing provider of title settlement software, announced the release of its advanced reporting module. The reporting feature equips title and closing professionals with an easy-to-use and customizable tool to analyze revenue sources, business relationships and operational efficiency.

"From our team's background building small and large agencies, we know the challenge of maintaining and growing relationships with lenders and realtors while guaranteeing the right level of quality. We built Qualia Reports to solve that problem," said Nate Baker, CEO of Qualia.

Within the "Reports" tab, Qualia users can easily access and create custom reports based on tasks, contacts and any of the other 4,000 pieces of data involved in the settlement transaction. The flexibility of custom reporting allows users to answer bigger questions about their business pipeline, while also identifying ways to streamline day-to-day operations. Because all the data is already housed in Qualia, reports are automatically generated and readily available to users at no additional cost.

Additionally, Qualia uses artificial intelligence to immediately detect and notify users when they enter a contact record that is similar to a pre-existing record. Qualia is the first settlement software to offer this functionality, which is critical to accurate business source reporting.

"Most title agencies have to manually merge duplicate contacts every month; it's extremely time-consuming and prone to errors. Because Qualia automatically merges duplicate contacts, agents can finally get a simple and fast answer to what business sources are their main revenue drivers and how those sources are trending month-over-month," Baker explained.
