|Title firm launches paperless practice
Wednesday, May 7, 2008
In an effort to offset paper consumption, and as part of its ongoing commitment to eco-friendly business practices, TitleVest is launching Grow Paperless.
The title insurance company has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant one tree for every order placed by a client who opts to go paperless. An estimated five million acres of forests are logged each year for paper production, making the paper industry the largest consumer of trees in the U.S.
To launch Grow Paperless and encourage its clients to go paperless, TitleVest has developed a new, state-of-the-art, interactive method of displaying its reports online.
Each report is displayed as its own interactive website, offering clients unparalleled functionality and a streamlined user interface.
Reports are also viewable on BlackBerrys and other PDAs with internet access.
As a further incentive to go paperless, TitleVest is including the preparation of ACRIS E-Tax Forms (i.e. the required NYC and NYS transfer tax forms) for free (a $100 value). TitleVest is also scanning paper documents to create electronic archives and working from electronic files rather than hard copies whenever possible.
