JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – (February 19, 2008) – Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (FIS) today announced that LandAmerica has signed an agreement to implement FIS’ SoftPro Select, a title and closing production package that will power LandAmerica Link, LandAmerica’s enterprisewide title and escrow system. Built on Microsoft’s .NET platform, SoftPro Select is a technologically advanced real estate solution that can easily scale to serve LandAmerica’s more than 8,000 users in more than 800 direct offices nationwide.
LandAmerica researched more than 40 alternatives before settling on SoftPro Select as the foundation for its single title and escrow system.
“Having studied all the options, SoftPro was our absolute first choice,” said Melissa A. Hill, president for Residential Services at LandAmerica. “We are excited about the opportunities FIS and SoftPro Select bring to LandAmerica.”
“LandAmerica’s decision to deploy SoftPro Select solidifies our position as the industry’s gold standard in closing and title applications,” said Joyce Weiland, chief operating officer of SoftPro. “Our partnership with LandAmerica is a defining step for SoftPro.”
SoftPro is now the product of choice for two of the nation’s largest underwriters, LandAmerica and Fidelity National Financial, a Fortune 500 company that began deploying SoftPro’s closing and title solutions in all of its direct operations more than two years ago.
