Future of Title Tech
While some are just starting to automate, the industry’s most successful agents are thinking about the next level.
While others are still pondering the need to automate title processes, this panel is for those who are ready for the next steps. A panel of top technologists and successful title agents will discuss how they’re “future-proofing” their tech stacks and what to expect from title technology in the next five years. Our guests will also take a practical, title agent’s perspective, demonstrating an understanding that not all agencies are in a position to break the bank, even though every title business can find room for advancement.
