Smaller mortgage brokers and bankers have been the most “agile,” said Veri-Tax senior director of product management Maria Kirgan, whose verification and fraud management company offers the e-signature function in through a partnership with Adobe and its EchoSign platform.
“That’s what we’re finding,” she said, noting that the companies provide the capability in such a way that it can “turn customers off and on,” with the latter done after clients go through a contract process. Clients can also use separate e-signature vendors if they choose.
She said in a recent interview that the companies have been able to bring on board “a handful” of clients for the 4506-T e-signatures this week and has had about 10 inquiries a week about them in the weeks leading up to this one.
“We’ve always had a lot of interest,” Kirgan said. “There have always been clients chomping at the bit.”
