Interhack Announces Formation of Interhack Title Management, Ltd.

Interhack announces the formation of Interhack Title Management, Ltd.

Bringing a blend of its experience in information technology management, regulatory compliance, and application development to bear on the issues facing real estate transaction management, Interhack announces the formation of Interhack Title Management, Ltd. and its Protégé service.

Protégé handles the entire Internet presence for title agencies. With a simple pay-as-you-go fee schedule, Protégé provides title agencies a complete content management system that allows them to update their own sites without needing to contact technical staff and without needing to know how to use the Web's language for page definition. More importantly, sites managed by Protégé also include an industry-specific application that allows lenders, mortgage brokers, and other clients to place orders and to track them as they are being processed. Employees spend less time on the phone and tracking down paper, increasing operational efficiency and reducing the agency's internal costs.

Unlike most title management systems, Protégé follows the deal through to where it counts: the closing. Once orders are ready for closing, either the client or a title agency representative can schedule a closing. A simple management interface allows employees to confirm the scheduled time and location. Email confirmation follows, preventing the frustration of closings foiled by miscommunication. Closers can even mark the deal as closed right from the closing location with a Web-enabled mobile phone.
