DocuSign partners with Cartavi to simplify real estate transactions.
DocuSign, the Global Standard for eSignature, announced that it has acquired Cartavi, a leading provider of collaboration services for real estate transactions. This combination, along with a deeper integration with existing partner, zipLogix, will allow users to easily and securely manage end-to-end real estate transactions anytime, anywhere, on any device – complete with forms, collaboration and eSignature in one.
“Our real estate customers want a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution for managing transactions from listing to handing off the keys,” Keith Krach, chairman and CEO of DocuSign, said. “Combining Cartavi’s technology and zipLogix’s dominant forms management with DocuSign’s eSignature solution advances our leadership in real estate by futher streamlining transactions to make it easier, faster and more convenient than ever to complete deals.”
DocuSign’s acquisition of Cartavi comes after an 18-month strategic partnership where the companies developed joint solutions to help real estate professionals accelerate speed to results, reduce costs and please clients. DocuSign’s longer partnership with zipLogix builds upon an existing eight-year integration where zipLogix customers have been able to DocuSign directly from zipForm. Now, customers will be able to use all three industry-leading products in combination over the web, on tablets, and mobile phones. Further integration is planned to make it even easier for all parties involved in real estate transactions to close deals faster.
“Our mission when we established Cartavi was to fundamentally improve outdated and hard-to-use real estate transaction management technology,” Glenn Shimkus, Cartavi CEO and co-founder, said. “We simplified the experience by taking a cloud-based mobile-first approach that supports the busy, on-the-go lifestyle of real estate professionals and the tremendous complexity of their transactions.”
DocuSign and Cartavi will continue to operate within their existing office spaces while collaborating with zipLogix on further integration of their solutions. Cartavi will officially change its name to Cartavi, A DocuSign Company. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
