FORSETI CASE STUDIES
Over the years, we’ve built our business with one goal in mind: deliver thoughtful cost efficient, solutions to our clients' needs. As the real estate industry continues to change, we must adapt. Our insights into the industry enables us to deliver real solutions which are competitively priced. Take a look below at where our software and expertise have been successfully implemented.
TFG Property Reports
TFG Property Reports is a property search company that services title companies, underwriters and government agencies. We built a full-spectrum property reporting platform, called TractRight, that pushes and pulls data to and from multiple sources to provide a seamless workflow from start to finish. Specifically built with future integrations in mind, it can easily connect with settlement software platforms and other databases, such as those used internally by clients. Encompassing time logs, status updates, order pushes and communication channels, the platform provides a transparent, flexible working environment that allows for easy monitoring by upper management.
Orange Lien Data
Orange Lien Data acts as an intermediary between municipalities and title and lien search companies. Using our software (MuniConnect), the company automatically retrieves code, permit, special assessment and utility information from various government systems to produce instant lien searches. A task that previously fell on municipalities and took days or weeks to complete is now a quick, automated process that takes up no government staff time.
After using our platform for a year Orange Lien Data requested a second platform to settle municipal liens. Within six months we created MuniSettlement. MuniSettlement allows City and County governments to streamline the collection of code liens by tracking outstanding liens, payments and communication with property owners.
Vialok is an app-based communication tool that eliminates the threat of wire fraud from the real estate closing process. Taking into consideration the everchanging cyberthreat environment and the complexities of the closing process – including workflows, regulations and the individual needs of various parties involved - we built a communication tool to fit the industry’s unique needs. We then partnered with Keypasco, a global leader in authentication solutions, to ensure the tool was impenetrable.
Real Estate Law Series
Real Estate Law Series is a continuing education company that provides title agents and attorneys with learning opportunities. Under our guidance, the company saved tens of thousands of dollars by transitioning to a free, flexible, open-source learning management system that empowers students to learn on the go using any device at their own pace.
