REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC" or the "Company") (OTCQB:CICI), a leading supplier of electronic signature solutions, celebrates the FHA's recent acceptance of e-signatures on FHA mortgage documents, as defined in its Mortgagee Letter 2014-03 that was released on January 31, 2014.
Over the last year, CIC is proud to have played an active role working with the FHA on its acceptance of electronic signatures, removing the previous barrier that required an FHA specific signature process. The FHA approval covers e-signatures for origination, servicing and loss mitigation, as well as FHA insurance claims, REO sales contracts and other related addenda.
"The FHA's acceptance of e-signatures has been considered by many to be a last hurdle in the quest for broad adoption of paperless technology in the mortgage industry," stated Robert Williams, vice president, sales for CIC. "Along with last year's acceptance by the IRS of e-signatures on Form 4506T, we expect the FHA's new policy to drive exponential growth for e-signature adoption in the mortgage sector. As a leading provider of e-signature solutions to financial service companies, CIC is uniquely positioned to support our clients and partners in the lending and mortgage industries to streamline their process and deliver secure, flexible and scalable solutions to enable a completely paperless business workflow."
CIC's SignatureOne® Ceremony® Server, and its related family of iSign® products and services that, in addition to meeting those released by the FHA, are fully compliant with ESIGN and UETA standards for e-signature solutions. Without sacrificing the benefits of a robust, standardized and scalable software solution, CIC provides customization and flexibility to its clients in the selection of electronic signature methods, on-premise or cloud-hosted deployments and remote or face-to-face signature capabilities, as well as additional options to meet the unique requirements of our clients' business, IT and diverse regulatory and compliance requirements.
