Transaction Management System

How It WorksSee what makes Paperless Pipeline the World's Simplest Transaction & Commission Management Software.

1Upload Documents

Send documents into the system in three convenient ways: Scan them, email them in or upload them directly with a web browser. You can even upload and email multiple documents in one shot. More

2Assign Documents to Transaction

Uploaded documents are kept in a holding queue from where your office staff and agents with appropriate permissions can assign them to a transaction with a couple of clicks. More

3Review Documents

Your staff can instantly preview docs and notify agents about missing signatures, missing pages, errors and omissions. Mark a document as reviewed with one click, and the system will log the date and time of review for compliance. More

4Stay compliant with document-tracking checklists

Use custom checklists to keep track of which documents are complete and which ones are still missing. More

5Track due dates across all transactions

Track contract-driven and compliance-driven due dates as well as other time-sensitive tasks so nothing falls through the cracks across any transaction. More

6Automatically Remind Agents of Upcoming Closings

The system can automatically email your agents a closing reminder five days before their transaction is scheduled to close. The email lets the agents know if any documents are missing from the file. More

7Close Transactions

Once the transaction has closed and all necessary documents are in, just change the transaction to a closed status. More

8Access Closed (and Open) Transactions from Anywhere

Your agents and staff will be able to access their closed as well as open transactions any time from anywhere using their internet connected smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. More

Paperless Pipeline is a great solution for our office. Not only did we get rid of a warehouse full of old files, but now the agents and staff can access their files anytime, from anywhere. State auditors are happy with it and gave it their approval. Simple, cost effective, and it works!- Lori ReeceBroker/OwnerRE/MAX Whatcom County, Washington75+ agent office

Questions & Answers

What is a transaction file?

A transaction file is anything from listing to pending to closed. A transaction is counted only once - when it's created. Once a transaction is created, you can change the status at anytime and it will continue to count as just a single transaction file.

For example, if you start a transaction file as a listing, that counts as one transaction file. If you get a pending offer on that listing, you will change the status from "listing" to "pending" and it will continue to count as only one transaction.

How does the transaction file quota work?

When you create a transaction file, it counts against your quota for the current month's billing cycle. The transaction quota is reset on your billing date every month and any open transaction files you created in previous months will not count against your new quota.

How does Paperless Pipeline help my real estate company?

"What do I need to close my deal?"

"I turned in my paperwork…you lost it!"

Questions like this will disappear when you begin to use Paperless Pipeline. Brokers and agents love using the application for real estate document management because we focus on one thing: eliminating the burden of paper. It's not uncommon for an office using Pipeline to cut their paperwork management time in half for every single transaction.

If you've already gone digital and you store your files on a web server in carefully organized folders, then your email inbox is probably a mess. With Paperless Pipeline, your files are accessible by everyone who needs access (and no one who doesn't) no matter what time it is or where they are in the world.

How does Paperless Pipeline work? What does it do?

Paperless Pipeline replaces your filing cabinets or file server where your transaction documents are stored. And, it's better than traditional real estate transaction software because you can access it from anywhere. Think of it as your online filing cabinet that's accessible 24/7 from wherever you are.

You can create a new transaction file in Paperless Pipeline by typing a property address and assigning a status like "Listing" or "Pending". That's it…very little data entry is needed to get started.

Docs can then be added to your account by scanning, emailing, or uploading directly into a transaction. The average Paperless Pipeline customer saves more than 50% on their copy bill as a result of putting their real estate documents online.

What doesn't Paperless Pipeline do?

Paperless Pipeline is not a forms company. If you want forms, choose from the dozens of existing solutions like Zipforms, RealFast, or your own MLS.

But once your forms are filled out, don't put them in a filing cabinet. Take your office mobile instead and use Paperless Pipeline for your real estate transaction management.
