RICS and BlueInk Team Up to Enhance Real Estate and Surveying Operations Through eSignature Technology
All RICS professionals to receive free RICS BlueInk eSignature accounts
London – July 3rd, 2019
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and BlueInk announced their partnership with the goal of expediting and better securing the workflow of RICS’ more than 90,000 professionals by providing them with electronic signature services. The companies will offer professional members of RICS with free access to BlueInk’s platform that allows users to review, sign, and store documents safely and securely online from anywhere and on any device.
RICS selected BlueInk’s eSignature software to be the preferred provider due to its unmatched ability to ensure electronically signed documents are done with the highest level of protection and verifiable proof of delivery. Additionally, the platform will help increase efficiency and profitability for RICS’s professional agents, developers, managers, and brokers by eliminating the need for traditional paper signings and providing a secure and protective eSignature process. Using BlueInk, professionals can prepare and deliver contracts and agreements with the protection of signer identity authentication, proof of delivery, and security of the BlueInk Certificate of Evidence.
“RICS is delighted to enter this arrangement with BlueInk and bring our professional members the many efficiencies of technology their platform offers,” said Malcolm Perryman of RICS. ”BlueInk has demonstrated that property professionals managing large quantities of documentation are able to do so with enhanced speed and assurance through their platform. The ability to manage the platform from any device and for recipients to read and sign documents from any device brings convenience to all parties.
“BlueInk is thrilled to team up with one of the most well-known and reputable professional organisations in the world today.” said Faze Sharif, BlueInk CEO. “By partnering with them, we aim to revolutionize the business of surveying and real estate development and put RICS professionals on the cutting edge of their industry. Not only is our platform more convenient than traditional paper signing, but with our patented technology, every signing is secure, protected, and confirmed.”
BlueInk will provide the RICS BlueInk eSignature Account free to every RICS professional, as well as discounts on premium services such as its SmartLink Form and Multilingual Audio Guided Review features. SmartLink Forms convert any template into a clickable URL link, allowing for customers and clients to access forms to complete and sign securely through the BlueInk system with a click of a button. The audio-guided review takes signers step-by-step through a document with narration in any language to ensure thorough client understanding of content and that all signatures are obtained.
