We chose this route to upgrade the level of transparency and efficiency for everyone involved in the closing—our borrowers, settlement partners, and the secondary market.”

With the Snapdocs eClosing platform and eVault, AFN gains a streamlined digital closing experience that eliminates errors and manual workflows, and enables eNote transactions at scale. The platform effortlessly integrates with all major loan origination systems and provides access to Snapdocs’ network of more than 75,000 settlement agents, including all of the lender’s top partners. AFN looks to invest deeper into the Snapdocs ecosystem to improve collaboration with its title partners by integrating the Snapdocs eClosing and Notary Scheduling platforms.
