Compliance Systems, Inc. (CSi) and eSignSystems, a division of Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX), today announced a partnership that will provide CSi's thousands of financial services clients with eSigning, eDelivery and eVaulting capabilities directly from CSi's IntelleDoc solution.

CSi ‘s partners and clients may now elect to incorporate the use of SmartSAFE to streamline all financial transactions, in any segment of banking, consumer or mortgage lending with eDelivery,  eSignatures and eVaulting.

Financial institutions using CSi IntelleDoc Solutions can easily incorporate SmartSAFE and benefit from a reduction in cost and time associated with printing, mailing, and processing financial transactions. Many companies are widely utilizing electronic delivery and signatures to improve compliance with state and federal regulators. Competitive advantage is also a very important driver of electronic transactions in today’s environment.

“We’re honored that CSi has authorized SmartSAFE for use by its financial institution clients and partners to assist in their journey to streamline existing business processes. This partnership will help both companies address the significant demand for next generation solutions that require compliant audit trails around the eDelivery and eSignature process,” said Kelly Purcell, executive vice president of eSignSystems.

eSignSystems’ SmartSAFE includes a SigningRoom that provides a centralized, secure environment where parties  can login to review and eSign documents from the IntelleDoc Solution. CSi's financial institution clients and partners have many options to integrate the SigningRoom directly into their own business process with similar or like user interface. By extending the look and feel of the CSi’s clients and or partners’ existing web infrastructure, eSignSystems ensures a seamless experience for the end user.

“Given the regulatory environment of today, our clients and partners demand high integrity around the document and data,” said Roger Gudobba, Chief Strategy Officer of Compliance Systems, Inc. “That applies to the eSignature piece as well.”

In addition, CSi IntelleDoc Solutions in collaboration with eSignSystems, has been certified with MERS® eRegistry and Fannie Mae eDelivery through SmartSAFE. This includes the dynamic SmartDOC, a mortgage eNote specification required for mortgage transactions. Wells Fargo Funding has also authorized CSi for eDelivery and eSignatures via SmartSAFE for its mortgage correspondents as well.
