DocMagic’s Chief eServices Executive Brian D. Pannell will be leading a webinar for the Electronic Signature and Records Association (ESRA) this Thursday, Dec. 3, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.The webinar, “Hindsight is 2020 — A Focus on eMortgage Technology and How it Was Tested,” is free to the public and will focus on how the mortgage industry has responded to the pandemic.
ESRA is an industry trade association that works to advance the adoption of digital transactions. Pannell serves on its Board of Directors.
This year mortgage technology—especially eNotarization—evolved in order to meet the challenge of closing safely in a pandemic. “eNotarization morphed into limited-touch notarization,” Pannell notes. This led to a rush by states to pass temporary emergency orders to allow remote online notarization (RON) closings, but also alternatives such a remote ink-signed notarization (RIN) and socially distanced in-person notarizations.
After seeing up close how lenders and borrowers have adapted to pandemic-driven changes in 2020, Pannell will share his insights and stories from the field about the mortgage industry's new tech normal.
