First American Docutech®, the leading provider of document, eSign, eClose and print fulfillment technology for the mortgage industry, and member of the First American family of companies, announced today the opening of a third print and mail facility to meet growing demand for loan document fulfillment. Located in Irving, Texas, the new facility and automated technology will double First American Docutech’s production capacity.
“While tremendous progress has been made in the pursuit of paperless loan processes, the ability to support the increasing printing and mailing documents needs of lenders is critical,” said Amy Brandt, president at First American Docutech. “As lenders transition more of their loan processes to a digital workflow, we’re committed to supporting and streamlining the entire mortgage workflow, including printed loan document fulfillment, with compliant services, while reducing lenders’ operational costs. The new facility reflects this commitment, increasing our document delivery capacity, while enhancing regulatory compliance and quality assurance.”
The opening of Docutech’s third fulfilment center supports ongoing growth in demand for its print services, which has increased 50% in volume since March 2020. Average daily loan packages and average number of pages printed daily have both increased by nearly 100% since 2019. The new center also provides support for First American Docutech’s new fulfillment API service, which enables any lender to easily utilize the company’s print and mail services, regardless of the document generation engine utilized to deliver all state and federally compliant investor documents, as well as custom documents and disclosures.
The state and federal laws that make electronic loan closings possible include protections for consumers who do not wish to use an electronic signing process. If consumers do not choose the digital option, printed loan documents must be provided at least three business days before the scheduled closing to avoid liability under the Dodd-Frank Act’s mortgage disclosure rules.
First American Docutech provides lenders flexibility and security with always ready print fulfilment centers, loan document origination system data pushback, and detailed compliance reporting. The new fulfillment center provides lenders with added peace of mind through redundant print and mail services for business continuity, reducing compliance risk and providing safeguards against potential service disruptions at individual facilities.
