Transaction Management Made Easy

zipTMS™ offers enhanced capabilities for real estate professionals.

Formerly known as relay®, zipTMS™ allows a broker, agent or transaction coordinator the ability to have a higher degree of consistency in transaction management and a greater degree of transparency. The platform tracks and manages all transaction information and activities from listing through closing, including: listing and sale information, transaction contacts, documents, client satisfaction and all communication.

Integrated with zipForm® Plus
Stay on task every day and handle all of your transactions from start to close with one easy to use platform. Woven within zipForm® Plus, the transaction management functionality is built into the platform, quickly enabling brokers and agents to become more productive.

Manage transactions
Plan transaction tasks in the "Checklist" tab. Task due dates are populated from forms or adjusted in the checklist tab. Set dates to be "relative" for automatic adjustment based on others (ex. Closing = 10 days after escrow).

Checklist templates
Set tasks in templates with relative dates and task due dates will automatically populate from form data. Include placeholder documents as reminders to upload required documents (ex. Sellers disclosures).

Notifications
As due dates approach or as tasks/documents become overdue, in-application notifications are displayed or emails are sent to the user.

Transaction history
Recording of tasks and their completion builds an extensive audit trail of the entire transaction.
