Wave Unveils SmartSigning Room™, an Extension of eSign Transaction Management Suite at Mortgage Bankers Association Conference

SmartSigning Room Has Been Integrated Into DocuTech’s Mortgage Document Library

Lee, MA and Boston (MBA’s 94th Annual Conference & Exposition) — October 15, 2007 — eSign Systems, a division of Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:WAVX), today announced the availability of SmartSigning Room™, an extension of the eSign Transaction Management Suite (eTMS), a software solution that helps enable originators, lenders, document providers, third-party mortgage vendors and other users to create, sign, store, access and manage the lifecycle of legally binding electronic documents. The SmartSigning Room offers users a secure, personal environment to electronically access and legally sign documents online, improving both loan disclosure and modification processes.

Wave also announced that DocuTech, Inc., the Idaho Falls-based provider of compliance services and documentation technology for the mortgage industry, has completed integration of SmartSigning Room with its current library of mortgage documents. DocuTech is now able to generate loan documents and automatically place them within a customer-branded SmartSigning Room online, allowing a borrower or lender to securely review and sign or annotate them.

Demonstarions at MBA
Wave is providing live demonstrations of the SmartSigning Room October 15-16 at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston in its suite on the 29th floor, next door to the Mortgage Broker Association’s (MBA) Annual Conference and Exposition at the Hynes Convention Center. Demonstrations will also take place at DocuTech’s booth, # 409, on the show floor.

With SmartSigning Room, documents in the SmartSAFE™ virtual document repository (eVault) can be reviewed simultaneously by all signers. The SmartSigning Room also auto-creates an invitation email that provides borrowers with secure access to review, annotate, electronically sign, print or download documents. Extremely user friendly for the borrower and originator, the SmartSigning Room also gives both the investor and loan servicer the confidence that the loans have been properly disclosed, modified and signed.

"Recent regulatory changes and conversations with investors and lenders have shown the need for a trusted loan modification solution such as SmartSigning Room," said Mitch Fransen, DocuTech vice president of investor relations. "Our partnership with Wave’s eSign Systems will allow us to provide that solution and benefit to both the investor and the borrower."

"The new virtual signing rooms in the latest version of eSign Transaction Management Suite were developed in response to market and customer feedback," said Scott Schrader president of Wave eSign Systems. "We expect this enhancement will have broad application across several vertical markets — including mortgage, insurance, banking, brokerage and law."

"Given today’s mortgage landscape, lenders and servicers are looking for assurance, trust and ease of use in the solutions they select to improve borrower satisfaction," added Kelly Purcell, executive vice president of Wave eSign Systems. "We’ve gone to great lengths with our document partners such as DocuTech in building turn-key, easy-to-use electronic solutions with a comprehensive set of compliance features."

"If DocuTech is preparing a closing document and customizing it for a lender, it will now have access to our SmartSigning Room technology—designed to provide all parties with a secure, lender-branded environment for signing or annotating mortgage documents," Kelly continued.

SmartSigning Room Features
Additional features of the SmartSigning Room include automatic notification to the originator if the borrower has not executed disclosures within 48 hours, controls around who can sign, expiration checks and requirements for borrower document review prior to signing. There is full logging and reporting of all SmartSigning Room creation, modification and activity.

Accessed through a username and password, the SmartSigning Room interface is user-friendly, customizable and supports signing various file types, including PDFs and SMARTDocs.

In addition to creating a branded SmartSigning Room, document providers can now distribute invitations and manage the Signing Room process, including obtaining ESIGN consumer consent.

Wave will also demonstrate how the mortgage industry can benefit from hardware-based, full disk encryption to protect sensitive information on company laptop computers. Demonstrations of the Seagate Momentus 5400 FDE.2 (Full Disc Encryption) hard drives, with EMBASSY management software will also take place in Wave’s suite on the 29th floor of the Sheraton Hotel next to the Hynes Convention Center.
