DocMagic, Inc. reported a 42 percent increase in revenue for 2016. The company credits its growth to the mortgage industry’s demand for products that enable TRID compliance, eSignatures and eClosings. This is the second consecutive year that DocMagic’s revenue has increased by roughly 40 percent.
“Lenders have been looking for ways to assure TRID compliance since 2015,” said Dominic Iannitti, president and CEO of DocMagic. “Our user base has grown quickly. A lot of existing DocMagic clients saw the value of SmartCLOSE immediately. It has also been an entry point for many of our new lender clients.”
SmartCLOSE enables lenders to interface with settlement providers and other relevant parties in a secure portal to share, edit, validate, audit, track and collaborate on documents, data and fees. In the past two years, DocMagic has completed numerous key integrations between lenders using SmartCLOSE, their loan origination systems, and new settlement service provider systems. More integrations are being developed.
“The number of eSignatures completed has increased significantly since launching SmartCLOSE and Total eClose,” said Iannitti, referencing activity for eSignSystems, a division of DocMagic that provides digital transaction management and electronic storage systems. “Lenders appreciate that they can stay compliant while gaining the speed and convenience of a digital process.”
DocMagic anticipates its growth will continue in 2017. In February of this year, the company completed a successful pilot that enabled one of the country’s largest warehouse lenders to accept and fund eNotes, a transition that Iannitti expects to become a major industry trend in the next 12 to 18 months.
DocMagic’s growth plans include ongoing calibration of its infrastructure. To maintain its standard for high quality and service, the company added staff in nearly all functional areas, including senior software developers, project managers, implementation specialists, technical support representatives, integration staff and business development professionals.
