What is SoftPro Select Hosted?

Maybe a trusted or reputable peer steered you in the direction toward your SoftPro Standard software or maybe our glowing customer testimonials from industry leaders convinced you to take the leap of faith, and boy, did it pay off.

Even though your current SoftPro Standard software provides an array of tools with everything you need to facilitate your closings, there are important reasons you should consider switching to our SoftPro Select Hosted software. SoftPro Select Hosted is our most popular software platform with additional features, the ability to manage and access more easily than SoftPro Standard, and provides the ability for you and your staff to work remotely.

SoftPro Select Hosted is fully comprehensive, customizable and configurable, so the platform is personalized to you and your business. This means there are no extraneous menus or tabs to clutter up the dashboard — everything you get is tailored to you. It includes our most popular features such as automation, commercial closing capabilities, and integrations with title and closing service providers. Plus, it doesn't have any of the IT costs that come along with traditional software like your SoftPro Standard platform. Our team at SoftPro handles hosting your data for you securely, so that you don't have to take on the expense of hosting and managing the data yourself. And perhaps most importantly, you can access SoftPro Select Hosted anywhere, at any time, with your computer and an internet connection.

Pace Law Paralegal Khara-Beth Harbin has nothing but praise for the software as it has helped her team significantly. Harbin says, “With all that SoftPro Select Hosted has to offer, I finally feel like I am working smarter, not harder! I will never use another software provider again!”

4 reasons that SoftPro Select Hosted is a good option for you

If you run a business, you already know that the operating costs are substantial. And no matter how tight your budgeting is and how developed your financial acumen is, there are always creeping costs and curveballs that find a way to complicate the budget and diminish your returns.

Not on our watch.

IT Solutions for the 21st Century Business

SoftPro Select Hosted gives you that same high-level service that your Standard software platform provides, but supercharges it with IT support and data hosting. This eliminates your need for an on-site or in-house IT department, which would require you to set aside funds for salaries and expensive hardware that help safeguard your data.

SoftPro Select Hosted has a SOC 2 report for Security and Availability Trust Services Principles. Our SoftPro Select Hosted team manages all data security for you remotely so that you can access your documents and software from any location. On top of that, you know it’s safe from hackers and other cyber criminals that seek to compromise confidential information and leave you with all the liability. Additionally, we have designed and implemented a robust disaster recovery and business continuity program for our SoftPro Hosted environment so that you can rest assured that your data and documents are safe in case of a disaster.

Landon Dunn of Landon A. Dunn law firm holds SoftPro’s data security in high regard. Dunn states, “We are ready and able to assist my clients with excellent real estate services with staff working from home and office securely. The program has enhanced staff productivity to meet the demanding needs of the real estate closing world.”

Process Automation

Ever spend countless hours crunching numbers, entering data and otherwise performing mundane office functions? While these are crucial to closing, they tend to be mind-numbingly boring and take time away from the big-ticket items.

SoftPro Select Hosted makes this a thing of the past by automating repetitive processes. The process automation function allows you to track orders from start to finish, set up each step of the order to eliminate any need to check in constantly and automatically assign each task to the appropriate personnel.

When you’ve already completed a couple of hundred closings, you see patterns develop, and you know that you’ll be executing the same functions repeatedly. So why squander precious time when you could be focusing more on closing additional accounts, acquiring new clients or innovating other business processes to help position your organization as an industry leader instead?

Process automation is more than just handy. It’s a proven method for reducing downtime, improving accountability, and preventing bottlenecks that stagger essential processes and cost you and your client’s precious time! That’s something everyone can enjoy!

Remote Work Capabilities

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past two and half years, you know as well as us that remote work – whether full time or hybrid – is here to stay. What was once a necessity during the lockdown stages of the pandemic has now become the norm for white-collar workers across the country. And that’s thanks to one key benefit: flexibility.

Remote work has allowed workers to achieve a flexibility in their schedule and living conditions never before possible with traditional in-person work. And while it’s clear that employees have typically preferred remote work over an office, both business and employees have faced challenges transitioning into this new reality – and title professionals are no exception.

Thanks to its fully customizable and configurable features, SoftPro Select Hosted is an ideal remote work solution, giving you everything you need to complete your closings quickly from the comfort of your own home. As we’ve shared, it includes robust automation features as well as integrations with RON and eClosing providers. Most importantly, though, you can access it anywhere, anytime, with your computer and reliable internet connection, making collaboration with remote teams a breeze.

Access to Our Most Popular Products and Services

SoftPro Select Hosted also gives users access to some of SoftPro’s most popular products and services designed to make your business as efficient and profitable as possible.

Ordering your title, closing and escrow packages through SoftPro 360 saves you time and money, giving you access to a massive selection of vendors. Not to mention, the information needed to place your orders automatically transfers from your SoftPro files, eliminating the need for paper order forms, dual entry, faxes, and emails.

With SoftPro Sign, you’ll have a one-stop solution to facilitate eClosings thanks to seamless collaboration with lenders, realtors, investors and consumers. You can utilize it for securely eSigning documents or employ its Remote Online Notarization (RON) capability to keep your RON services in-house. Not to mention, the option to do eSign only or both eSign and RON allows you consolidate your use of vendors who sometimes offer only one or the other.

With SoftPro Banking, title professionals can securely send and receive wire transfers from a network of integrated banks, including First American Trust, City National Bank, Fifth Third Bank, and more – all without leaving your Software Select Hosted software! Easily receipt incoming wires to the appropriate ledger, approve or reject outgoing wires, and view all wire details with the click of a button, saving you time and simplifying your workflow.
