eSignSystems to Present on eSignature Adoption at GTS 2011 Mortgage Industry Conference

EVP Kelly Purcell to Share How Electronic Mortgages Simplify and Speed Mortgage Processing and Closing

Lee, MA — May 12, 2011 eSignSystems, a division of Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX), has announced that Executive Vice President Kelly Purcell will open the Global Technology Summit 2011 on May 16 with a presentation addressing the efficiency of electronic signatures in the mortgage industry, from appraisals to loan closings. Two customers will also join Purcell at the show to share their first-hand eMortgage experiences during the conference’s educational sessions and seminars.

Electronic mortgages simplify and speed the mortgage process. All required paperwork is originated in electronic form, and is transferred along with any change of loan ownership. Quality and compliance are improved because the original data from the loan application and disclosure is reconciled with the loan closing documents. eMortgages offer the added benefit of giving all secondary market participants, from the buyer, sellers and servicers, real-time access to all loan data.

“The industry transition to eMortgages continues to gain momentum, as mortgage lenders set aside the paper-intensive work processes that led to inefficiencies and far too many cases of lost paperwork when mortgages were bought and sold,” said Kelly Purcell, EVP of eSignSystems. “Electronic mortgages speed those formerly slow and cumbersome processes to mitigate risk and improve regulatory compliance, while saving money at the same time.”

eSignSystems is a leading provider of lifecycle management tools for eMortgage processing and other legally binding electronic transactions that provides full integration with MERS eRegistry and ensures documents remain free from tampering. The SmartSAFE Bundle (eVault) from eSignSystems is a customized solution for creating, signing, storing, accessing and managing the lifecycle of electronic mortgage documents.
