5 Ways Janus Title is Changing the Closing Process
February 13, 2021
People have adopted tech into every aspect of their lives. From shopping online to connecting with friends and family through video chat to ordering a meal through an app, technology is a part of almost everything we do. One industry that was lagging behind the trend towards tech was the closing industry. Some of the big players in the title industry felt there was no need to mess with the status quo. Everything worked, so what’s the problem?
At Janus Title, we took a different approach with a commitment to technology from the very beginning. People had become accustomed to Amazon Prime delivery, ordering an Uber ride in seconds, and being able to connect with their world right from their smartphone. So why should the title industry be any different?
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed a need for the entire real estate industry to adapt to changing requirements and client buying trends. Seemingly overnight, closing processes changed to video chats, curbside signings, and digital signing. Janus Title was uniquely prepared to embrace these changes and, moving forward, the closing process may never go back to the way it was.
Here’s how Janus Title is changing the closing process forever.
1. Cloud Based Service
Some of the greatest tech that’s changing industries around the world is no longer based on a local device. Almost 70% of enterprise businesses are moving operations to the cloud. Some of the top reasons for moving to the cloud include improved security, modernization, and cost. In other words, the cloud is more efficient and flexible for modern businesses.
With Qualia Connect, offered exclusively in Chicagoland by Janus Title, the closing process is now in the cloud too. This brings together all information and data to connect all parties and offer the most streamlined experience. From integrated video chat to document storage to progress tracking and more, Qualia Connect pulls together a number of processes into one simple interface. Best of all, through the mobile app, all parties can stay connected throughout the closing process no matter where they may be working from.
2. The Janus Turnaround
For many clients, one of the most common complaints about the real estate closing process is how long it can take. From the outside looking in as an average person, there is a lot of sitting around and waiting for other parties. Real estate professionals understand the many various processes required to successfully complete a closing. The Janus Turnaround promises the fastest turnaround for title searches in the industry.
Thanks to superior, industry leading technology, Janus Title is able to make this promise to real estate professionals and the clients they work with. What does it all mean? It means faster closings, happier clients, and more deals completed.
3. Instant Quotes and Online Ordering
Janus Title helps take the guesswork out of getting quotes and placing orders for title searches. With instant online quotes and simple ordering through a streamlined virtual portal, real estate professionals get accurate pricing information right away and can begin the ordering process without any delay. Couple this with the Janus Turnaround and the closing process can be completed much faster than through more traditional channels.
Throughout the process, from getting an instant quote to placing an order, secure two-way communication is available for questions, concerns, and support. Information, documents, and data can be shared securely as well to help keep the closing process moving along quickly and smoothly.
4. Seamless Process from Beginning to End
Janus Title helps real estate professionals bring together a number of tools to ensure the closing process is seamless from start to finish. During the closing process, users and clients can monitor progress through the Qualia Connect app. In addition, milestones like e-signatures can be completed right within the platform. An integrated calendar helps keep all ongoing tasks on track and ensure there’s no scheduling conflicts with other closings. Best of all, the built-in scheduler connects with all associated calendars to ensure everyone required for a closing is available and ready. No double-bookings, no missed meetings, no upset clients.
Janus Title doesn’t just make the process of ordering and obtaining a title search easy, we ensure the entire process is managed as efficiently as possible for all parties involved.
5. Enhancing the Client Experience
Ultimately, the client experience is what drives everything. With Janus Title, industry professionals including lenders, lawyers, and brokers can ensure that they offer the best closing experience to their clients. This level of service allows professionals to differentiate themselves and their businesses from the competition. This can be integrated into branding and marketing as well.
Of course, even in our modern, tech-focused world, word of mouth still plays a huge role. With a faster, more streamlined closing process; closing day doesn’t have to be stressful for clients. They will tell their friends about their experience, share reviews on search engines, and comment on social media posts. The average client doesn’t often know what goes on behind the scenes during a real estate closing. All they know is how they feel about the experience. Janus Title helps ensure that feeling is a positive one.
Changing the Closing Process Together
Client-focused real estate professionals understand the importance of adapting to modern consumer habits. We have seen a lot of this innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lawyers adopted video meetings while realtors made use of virtual open houses. Shouldn’t the closing process match the tech forward experience clients have come to expect?
