FRASER, Mich., Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- zipLogix, creator of zipForm®, the leading provider of electronic forms software for the real estate industry, today announced that it is providing zipLogix Digital Ink™, powered by SIGNiX, to all members of the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.). As a member benefit, C.A.R.'s real estate professionals will have unlimited use of zipLogix Digital Ink™, saving agents significant time and expense while making it easier for their clients. This digital signature solution has been seamlessly integrated with the zipForm® 6 real estate forms technology and will help over 163,000 agents and brokers in California get to the closing table faster.

"Recognizing that electronic signatures are an indispensable component for our members in conducting their daily business and transactions, we are pleased to be the first association to provide this essential benefit to our members," said C.A.R. President, Steve Goddard. "zipLogix Digital Ink™ helps streamline the real estate transaction, saving our members time and money and eliminating errors so that they can better serve their clients."

When using a digital signature, a document is signed and that signature is permanently embedded within the document and can never be separated from it, proving the document has not been altered. In addition to offering its members the most secure way to get a signature, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® is providing a robust solution with unlimited transactions, the ability to add PDFs and pre-tagged signature and initial fields.

"We are extremely excited to offer this new digital solution to the members of the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®," stated Walt McDonald, Chairman of the Board for zipLogix. "SIGNiX has worked closely with zipLogix to develop a deep integration with our flagship product, zipForm® 6, to create a signing experience that is easy for everyone involved in the transaction. The solution is affordable for associations and having California as the first association to provide this solution shows its commitment to providing members with the tools to move the real estate industry forward."

zipLogix Digital Ink™ users will have access to essential tools to execute their contracts electronically with security, speed and ease. The product is a digital signature which offers security and long-term trust that other electronic signatures do not provide. This ensures that contracts are legally compliant and enforceable. An address book feature allows users to store contact information for faster sending, and users also have the ability to add new signatures for contract parties who aren't initially represented on the forms. All of these features are helping to define an industry standard for digital signature use in the real estate industry.

zipLogix will be demonstrating zipLogix Digital Ink™ at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo (NARdiGras 2010), November 5 – 8th in New Orleans, LA at Booth #1021. In addition to product demos, attendees will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win an Apple® - iPad™ with Wi-Fi - 32GB.

zipLogix is working with a number of state and local associations on ways to provide their members with digital signatures as an affordable member benefit and promote the adoption of zipLogix Digital Ink™.
