Stewart Title and ZOCCAM Announce Partnership to Provide Virtual Courier Service

HOUSTON (April 4, 2019) – Stewart Title and ZOCCAM, a virtual courier service provider, announced it entered into a partnership to provide enhanced customer service through ZOCCAM’s secure platform. This partnership with ZOCCAM will allow Stewart in select markets to receive earnest money and documents through its secure platform that reduces the risk of potential fraud for buyers, sellers, brokers, and agents.

“Stewart is proud to partner with leading industry technology providers, like ZOCCAM, to simplify the complex closing process, allowing customers to conduct business more securely anywhere, and at any time," said Matt Morris, Chief Executive Officer, Stewart Information Services Corp. “Customer experience and security are both paramount to us, and this partnership supports these priorities.”

ZOCCAM enables REALTORS® and consumers utilizing the ZOCCAM mobile app to send earnest money and closing costs between parties via a secure platform, preventing wire fraud and providing more transparency during the transaction. This service will also allow Stewart to focus on the customer experience rather than the back and forth of older delivery methods.

“ZOCCAM enhances the customer experience and increases reach of customers by providing a secure mobile platform with a user-friendly experience,” said ZOCCAM CEO and Founder, Ashley Cook. “We saw a need to take the security risk out of the transaction, and in working with forward-thinking industry partners like Stewart Title, we will be able to steadily increase the number of virtual courier transactions while providing secure service and peace of mind, regardless of geographical location.”

“Our partnership with ZOCCAM gives us additional tools to meet our customer needs by providing an enhanced digital experience that is secure and will save time and money for all parties,” said Wyomia Clifton, Senior Division President. “This partnership will also help us better serve the ever-changing and fast-growing market in the Pacific Northwest.”

Nationwide, Stewart has been at the forefront of modernizing the real estate sales process and promotes leveraging technology to streamline the closing process, making it easier for clients.
