a360inc Further Expands Real Estate Settlement Services, Acquires California-based Express Notary Services
November 16, 2020 | Dallas, TX a360inc, a portfolio company of Knox Capital and a leading technology and outsourcing solutions provider to the legal and financial services industries, today announced the acquisition of Express Notary Services (ENS), a national notary and signing services provider based out of Irvine, California.
Founded in 2003, Express Notary Services provides national notarization and signing services and is one of the larger independent service providers to the real estate and legal marketplaces. ENS’s advanced CloseClear signing technology platform allows clients to fulfill their signing needs directly through the platform in a self-service model or through a variety of full-service options including vendor management, training, placement, document quality control and a multitude of reporting capabilities.
“We are excited to welcome the Express Notary Services team and add their CloseClear technology platform into the a360inc family. a360inc has remained laser-focused on introducing best-in-class technology and services capabilities to industry pockets where innovation and options have lagged market needs,” said a360inc CEO, Scott Brinkley. “With this latest addition to our lender and legal services portfolio, we will be able to offer a variety of solution models to our legal, lender and settlement services partners—from the full-service outsourcing of panel management, order placement and quality control, to lighter platform-based technology solutions, including remote online notarization (RON) solutions."
Today a360inc announced an expanded partnership with Howard Law Group, a full-service real estate law firm based in Boca Raton, Florida who added CaseAware to the list of a360inc services they currently utilize. The inclusion of CaseAware, the industry’s leading case management system, positions Howard Law Group for scalability and growth in the mortgage default space through increased efficiencies and cost reduction. CaseAware’s ability to allow for the creation of a unique workflow lets Howard Law Group build a detailed map of the step-by-step processes, enabling transparency and the clarification of duties and responsibilities within each case.
"CaseAware's industry-specific tools for automation and integration are reason enough to make the switch, but it was our proven dedication to the success of Howard Law Group that finalized their decision to add CaseAware," said Jan Duke, COO for a360inc. "Our expanded partnership will further strengthen Howard Law Group's position in the mortgage marketplace for the remainder of 2020 and poise the firm for exponential growth in 2021 and beyond.”
“There were many reasons we chose to switch our case management system to CaseAware such as the ability to create a unique and detailed workflow along with efficiencies in document preparation and billing and integrations with servicer platforms. However, a360inc’s experience in the default space and focus on our and our client’s specific needs were among the biggest factors in our decision to move to CaseAware,” explained Harris Howard, founding member and managing partner for Howard Law Group. “Our former case management software couldn’t account for the complexities and nuances of the foreclosure industry and partnering with the leading tech provider in the default space met that need.”

How has eRecording become invaluable in light of the pandemic?
"eRecording has become even more valuable during the COVID-19 pandemic for both document submitters and county recording offices," says Jim DeGaetano, Director of Real Estate Services at CSC. "eRecording has enabled submitters to continue to record documents in counties that are physically closed due to COVID but are still recording documents submitted electronically. eRecording is a contingency solution for county recording offices as it enables their employees to work from home. While those counties can't record mail-in or walk-in paper documents, their employees can record electronically submitted documents from home."
