Don Talks with Nathan Bossers to Find Out What's Next?
Don Talks with Nathan Bossers

The NextAce team joined the title industry at the National Settlement Services Summit (NS3) in San Antonio in early June. We had time to sit down with a few industry innovators to discuss how the industry is changing because of the availability of new property data sources, new technologies and new workflows.

Nathan Bossers, COO of Boston National

In this episode, NextAce CEO Don Cantral talks with Nathan Bossers, COO of Boston National Title. Boston National Title operates in 41 states and leads the title and settlement services industry with a unique, channel specific service delivery model that dedicates the right teams with the right skillsets to each client's workflow. Boston National was acquired by Incenter in 2016 to expand their end-to-end client solutions.


Better Data and Analytics for Better Decisions

Nathan talks with Don about how lenders are working to expedite their speed to decision with point of sale technology, better workflows and enhanced loan operating systems. And, he shares his wish list to help get better product offerings to customers more effectively — it includes more access to aggregated property, loan and borrower data along with predictive analytics for better decision making.

Barriers to Digital Closings

Nathan also explains that while a full e-closing was completed in North Carolina, there are still barriers to digital closing. While they provide greater efficiencies and fewer errors than paper closing, full adoption is prevented by regulators, government entities, lenders and even consumers.

And, in the future while we may see more hybrid signings and processes — it will take more innovation and acceptance from all participants to take advantage of the cost benefits, improved loan close times and other efficiencies these closings can drive.

Title Plants, Starter Records and Competition

Finally, Don and Nathan talk about access to data, including starter records and discuss whether title plants help or hinder access and competition in the industry.

And stay tuned for more episodes of What's Next? where we'll really open up the dialogue on What's Next in our industry. We're looking forward to more conversations with other innovative thought leaders in the industry including some that challenge our thoughts and ideas, but are helping to push this paradigm change in directions we haven't thought about yet.

What's Next? Podcast Launch
What's Next?

This week, we're proud to launch both the NextAce blog and our new podcast — What's Next?

We looked around the title insurance industry and recognized that the industry is changing at an incredibly fast pace because of the availability of new data sources, new technologies and new participants that are challenging old ideas of how workflows can be updated for speed and accuracy using these new tools. So, we'll be in the field every few weeks talking to industry leaders about where the industry is going, and how it's getting there.

For this first episode, our CEO Don Cantral is in-house talking with our two newest team members, David Floyd and David Daley. For more than a decade, these three have worked together in the industry and in some ways competed against one another.

David Floyd comes to us from SKLD in Colorado where he worked to minimize risk with quality plant data validated from a variety of sources. According to David, technology has enabled the industry to capture and validate more and better data. When he first started with SKLD, he questioned, "Why are we doing things this way?" and proceeded to build innovative new workflows that challenged the status quo.

David Daley joins us from Realty Data Company. He was also the President and Co-Founder of DataChek, LLC., the title data and technology company that preceded the establishment of RDC. David is passionate about the American Dream of home ownership and feels it's our job to protect the consumer and their biggest investment. For David, that all starts with the technology and data and speeding up the process for all parties.

Listen in as Don, David and David talk about the past, present and future of real estate data and how more access to more data and technology is changing our industry at incredible speeds.

And stay tuned for more episodes of What's Next? where we'll really open up the dialogue on What's Next in our industry. We're looking forward to more conversations with other innovative thought leaders in the industry including some that challenge our thoughts and ideas, but are helping to push this paradigm change in directions we haven't thought about yet.
