“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.”
