DocuSign reports that Wells Fargo Funding is accepting disclosure documents signed with its electronic signature offering and suggests that it is a sign of growing adoption in the space. DocuSign is now on the bank's approved electronic signature vendor list.
While adding a vendor to a list may not really indicate growing acceptance, I do believe that electronic signatures are going to be more important to lenders and servicers this year as they work to trim more expense out of the transaction. The MBA, in association with Encomia, has already shown that electronic signatures will reduce hard expenses related to printing, mailing and sorting documents.
DocuSign has been a strong player in this area for some time. There are a number of other vendors that have been offering electronic disclosures for quite some time now.
