ZipForm® Automates Homeminders Set Up

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI and SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 7, 2007 -- Thanks to new integration, ZipForm® REALTOR® clients can now provide Homeminders gift subscriptions in two easy steps. ZipForm, the leading brand of forms software for the real estate industry, will provide auto-fill data from real estate forms for use in the setup process of Homeminders accounts, thereby significantly reducing the amount of time it takes to provide a truly unique home-closing gift to just a few seconds.

Homeminders recently launched new Web services that enable enterprise and customer management application partners to export data to create Homeminders subscriptions. ZipForm is the first to utilize this new capability. Since ZipForm already captures property data as part of the forms process, a simple confirmation by the REALTOR® automatically imports the data to the Homeminders service, cutting down setup time for users. Information including buyer name, email address, property address and specifications are auto-filled to the Homeminders system, making it even easier for the new homebuyer to get started.

"This integration makes gifting the Homeminders service as easy as 1-2... that's it," said Tom Blondi, CEO of Ethix Media. "Since the closing is a busy time for REALTORS®, we wanted to make it simple and quick to give a thoughtful gift and leverage the technology that ZipForm is known for. Of course, the REALTORS® benefit from a branded gift that automatically generates 24 personalized monthly emails, so we really provide a service to the REALTOR® and the client."

"ZipForm applications help real estate professionals streamline their workflow, save time and, in general, work more efficiently," said Robert Bailey, Chairman of the Board of RE FormsNet, the creator of ZipForm. "Through this partnership, we're able to leverage those efficiencies for a great service after the transaction."
