Tennessee REALTORS® Go Paperless with Instanet Solutions

January 29 2015

Nashville, Tennessee and Austin, Texas (January 28th, 2015) – The Tennessee Association of REALTORS® (TAR) and Instanet SolutionsInstanet Solutions announced today that they have expanded the paperless system used by TAR.

TAR members have enjoyed Instanet's online InstanetForms® service since 2005. Effective immediately, every member will now have Instanet's complete paperless product suite as a benefit of their membership in TAR. This includes TransactionDesk® as well as unlimited electronic signatures using Authentisign®. Authentisign is the ESIGN-compliant electronic signature solution, allowing REALTORS® to easily and securely transmit deal documents to clients for online signing.

As an additional benefit, TAR has authorized direct integration between all participating MLS's in the state and Instanet. That means a REALTOR® who is making an offer on a listing can simply click a single button inside the MLS which will automatically open and complete the purchase and other necessary offer forms inside Instanet.

Brokerages with their own internal back office applications will also be allowed by TAR to integrate their forms for direct and secure access through Instanet. The new arrangement with TAR also includes Instanet's Brokerage software modules at no extra cost to the firms seeking to take their company paperless. The Broker File Manager automates the entire lifecycle of listing and sales and virtually eliminates the need to read and approve paper files.

"TAR helped lead the real estate industry nationwide when they introduced electronic InstanetForms as a core business practice more than 10 years ago. They have been a great partner and we are excited to help them take the next step in going paperless," says Martin Scrocchi, CEO & President of Instanet Solutions. "By adding our full suite of services, REALTORS® in Tennessee will now have the complete TransactionDesk service including Authentisign, our, online collaboration and electronic signing system. Instanet remains dedicated to innovation and delivering easy-to-use supercharged products and this expanded service relationship in Tennessee is a great fit."

Buzz Steele, TAR's Director of Marketing & Member Services added, "This is the next step in evolution for the TAR Firms and Membership to go as GREEN as they choose. It provides Managing Brokers the opportunity to manage all of their agents' transactions in one location – TransactionDesk. TAR plans to focus more education for the Brokers and intensify its efforts in educating its REALTOR® members on all the new features available. Ultimately, TAR wants to provide the most efficient, relevant and useful services for its membership. With the help of Instanet Solutions, TAR is well on its way in meeting this goal. We look forward to working alongside Instanet Solutions and maintaining our outstanding relationship!"
