How did we get here?

ShortTrack was first built in response to managing the distressed real estate market in 2009.   In 2011, the direct operations of the Midwest’s two largest title companies began using ShortTrack’s software.  Since then, ShortTrack has continued its mission to make it simple for all stakeholders to collaborate securely in a transaction.

In pioneering the connection between real estate and title, ShortTrack integrated with the real estate software applications dotloop, DocuSign Rooms, SkySlope, and zipLogix, and connected them to title software industry leaders RamQuest, ResWare, and SoftPro.   The connection allows data and documents to move efficiently and securely, saving significant time and effort in ordering title.

Because document collection doesn’t stop at the order, ShortTrack incorporated customizable web forms into its portal to securely collect seller/buyer data and documents, along with its DocuSign integration.

As our integrations have grown, ShortTrack has become the industry leader in secure, comprehensive connectivity, connecting eSignature, eClosing, lender collaboration, title search, and banking software to title production systems.

Our customers call us “The Universal Tilte Connector”.  Drop us  a line and get connected!
